Why We Like The Dura-Ace 9100 C60 Carbon Road Wheelset
Built to excel at both training and racing, Shimano's C60 Carbon Road Wheels are a speedy and reliable choice for those of us seeking an aero wheelset to improve our speed and cut down on drag. Although the moderate rim depth keeps these wheels out of the featherweight division, they're competitive in their category and well-suited to just about any sort of riding. At 50mm deep, the C60 hits the sweet spot to balance aerodynamics and weight, so you'll snap up to speed quickly and be able to hold it for the long haul with ease.
Shimano uses a proprietary process whereby it merges the carbon portion of the wheel to the alloy composite braking surface. This junction utilizes a spine of aluminum against which Shimano sandwiches plies of unidirectional carbon. This process increases rigidity, durability, and aerodynamics while keeping the weight down. It also provides an aluminum braking surface that works on command in a variety of conditions, free from the worries and poor braking that can plague carbon braking surfaces.
- An aerodynamic wheelset with versatile capabilities
- Machined aluminum with carbon laminate balances weight and cost
- 50mm hybrid rim is fast without the poor braking of carbon
- Durable titanium freehub body reduces weight
- Wide hub flanges boost wheel stiffness even more
