Shimano WH-RS20-A Clincher Wheel $0.00
Climb long, climb easy.
We can all stand to be better climbers, and none of us are going to get there with 50mm deep wheels. Because in a world of gaunt, Italian mountain goats, not only do low profile wheels reign supreme, but Shimano is the wheel of choice.Shimano's WH-RS20-A Clincher Wheels are what you're looking for if you want to have lungs at elevation, or simply want great wheels. Utilizing nearly 100 years of innovative experience and a design that rivals wheels three times the price, the WH-RS20-A is a must have for the mountains.
Shimano's WH-RS20-A Clincher Wheels 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 RS20-A'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-RS20-A Clincher Wheels are available in the color White, and includes front and rear quick-release skewers. The freehub is compatible with 8-, 9-, and 10-speed cassettes, and is available in two options to accommodate Campagnolo and Shimano/SRAM cassette bodies.

Do these wheel sets, or for that matter , other wheel sets from other manufacters include the weight of the skewers in (grams) when shopping on the web.
No, not usually. The weights are generally the naked wheel; no skewer, rim strip, tire, or tube.
