Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Carbon Front Clincher Wheel
Constructed from their high strength/low weight combination of carbon and aluminium, the Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Carbon Front Clincher Wheel is a great choice if you’re on the market for a versatile wheel that’s at home on long, testing climbs in sweltering heat as it is on the Sunday club run.
The carbon/aluminium construction comprises of a reduction in alloy wheel thickness from 1.3mm to 0.7mm, then bonding the carbon fibre to enhance strength and rigidity whilst still commanding a much lower weight than if the rim was built entirely from aluminium.
The carbon reinforced spoke eyelets increase the strength and durability, whilst 16 stainless steel and bladed straight pull spokes increases tension for a more highly strung wheel that remains stiff in every situation.
At 21mm deep, the Dura-Ace 9100 C24 Front Wheel is perfectly poised as a great all-rounder, not adhering to the aerodynamics of a deeper rim, but commanding a much lower weight of 585 grams for a more responsive ride.
