Shimano WH-RS10-A Clincher Wheelset $0.00
Speed is of the essence
For decades, aluminum has been the reliable thorn in the side of carbon fiber wheels. Simply put, nothing has proven to be as reliable as aluminum clinchers, and that's why you'll find them everywhere from under the legs of training pros to the finish line of your local criterium. The Shimano WH-RS10-A Clincher Wheelset is a welcome continuation of this tradition. With iterations of Shimano technologies typically reserved for top-tier wheels, the WH-RS10s deliver the perfect combination of speed and durability.
Shimano's WH-RS10-A Clincher Wheelset benefits directly from the wheel technology developed for Shimano's top-tier Dura-Ace. The most notable is the incorporation of Shimano's angular contact bearings. This may seem like a small feat, but it makes a world of lateral and torsional rigidity come to life under your legs. The bearings' shape allows them to be pushed as far outboard as possible. This makes the hub a wider platform for the spokes to stand on, and thus creates a stiffer wheel with higher spoke tension -- think about the difference between someone pushing you with your feet together, and then again with your feet shoulder-width apart. While this system adds weight at the hub, it takes it away from the rim. Centering the weight at the hub amounts to a lower rotational weight, and that means more efficiency, less effort, and faster accelerations. Throw in a slight aerodynamic advantage with the RS10's 20mm deep aluminum rims and a 16/20 stainless steel spoke count, and you have a KOM killer of a wheels.
The Shimano WH-RS10-A Clincher Wheelset is available in the color Black, and includes front and rear quick-release skewers. The freehub is compatible with 8-, 9-, and 10-speed cassettes, and accommodates Shimano/SRAM cassette bodies.
