You don't have to pay big bucks for lightning fast performance with the Shimano RS81 C50 carbon clincher wheelset. These 50mm deep carbon/alloy wheels are aerodynamic, offer great braking performance, and the new OptBal spoke lacing system for improved durability and stiffness.
The deep section carbon faring lets these wheels knife through the wind, while the alloy brake track improves braking performance over full carbon clinchers, so you can ride these in any weather conditions and feel fully confident in your ability to stop. The 23mm rim width improves aerodynamics, so the wheels won't function like a sail in the cross wind, and they corner nicely thanks to the wider width. They also feel more comfortable on harsh surfaces, but nice and stiff in the sprints.

Shimano aluminum hubs are 11-speed compatible and roll on precision Japanese contact-angle cone bearings and oversize 7075 alloy axles for a smooth ride and extra rigidity--especially during out of the saddle efforts. The all-new OptBal spoke lacing system also gives these wheels a bombproof ride while reducing weight.
