Product Description

Shimano may not be the flashiest brand, but they always commit to create high-quality components. There is plenty that goes into their goals - exceptional build quality, meticulous testing, and an eye toward reliability. In essence, the Shimano Dura-Ace 9170 C40 Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubular is all of Shimano's design values built into one high-performance disc brake road wheelset.

This Shimano Dura-Ace C40 Disc Tubular wheelset is an excellent all-arounder. It's rim depth, at 37 mm front and rear is an excellent mix of lateral stiffness, decent aerodynamics, and stability in windy conditions. It uses the brand's D2 rim profile for reduced drag at yaw angles up to 15-degrees, while providing enough compliance to be manageable on rutted roads and smooth roads alike. A 24 mm rim width ensures strong aerodynamics when paired to a wider tubular tire.

Shimano uses 16 blades spokes in the front, and 21 spokes in the rear to ensure similar overall tension relative to their wheel placement. These wheels use Dura-Ace hubs with a Centerlock rotor standard alongside standard 12 x 100 mm thru-axles up front and 12 x 142 mm thru-axles in the rear. Another favorite Shimano hub feature is the angular contact cup and cone style bearings. It offers greater strength than sealed cartridge bearings as it can displace both lateral and vertical loads more effectively for the smoothest rolling and enhanced durability.
