Shimano has completely updated the Dura-Ace wheelset line-up, offering the perfect high-end road racing wheels for all riding conditions. Besides rim choices of 24 and 50mm height, Shimano is now also offering a 35mm carbon rim that brings about an excellent combination of high rigidity, low weight, and excellent aerodynamics.

All new wheelsets feature the new Dura-Ace 7900 hubs with Shimano’s proven cup-and-cone technology as well as a new bearing adjustment system that enables easy manual adjustment without the use of a cone wrench. These Dura-Ace wheelsets have been tested extensively last year by many professional riders, including Oscar Freire and Robert Gesink (Rabobank), Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel) and Juan Antonio Flecha (SKY). Also the new carbon composite Dura-Ace pedals were tested by the Shimano sponsored professional teams.
