Shimano Dura-Ace WH-R9270-C36-TL Front Wheel

With the release of the impressive Dura-Ace R9200-series component range Shimano also updated and redesigned their Dura-Ace and Ultegra wheelsets. In a break with their norm, Shimano is offering the first generation 12-Speed road wheels in individual (front, rear) builds, as well as by the set. This item is the Front Wheel.For true road and allroad wheels, a new full carbon wider rim shape available was developed in three depths to modernize the line and deliver better aerodynamic overall performance while delivering superior tubeless ready capability. The rims are lighter, reducing rotational weight, and Shimano's superior hub technologies have been tapped into for their comprehensive strength, precision machining, and complete serviceability.

The shallowest version of the rim is the 36mm R9270-C36-TL, a 1350 gram wheelset optimized for climbing and descending hills or mountains. The D2 rim shape design reduces drag better than competitors at yaw angles ranging from 0 to 15 degrees. It features a 21mm internal rim width complemented by a 28mm external width that matches exceptionally well aerodynamically with 26-30mm tires, but is capable of carrying 25-32mm options safely. The front hub is pure Dura-Ace, with a forged and machined aluminum shell, straightpull flanges, oversized anodized aluminum axles, Contact seals, Angular Contact, loose ball stainless steel bearings; CBN finish cup/cone; all of which is fully serviceable. Braking control comes the Shimano-developed Center Lock disc brake rotor mount that is now ubiquitous throughout road and gravel cycling. If you live in hilly or mountainous areas, love to climb and descend, the C36 is a high performing disc brake front wheel option in a very strong, competitive class.

Features

  • Lightweight tubeless/clincher carbon wheelset with 36mm depth optimal for climbing, descending, rolling hills
  • Shimano's Science of Speed: wheel performance dictated by aerodynamics, rigidity and weight
  • Drive rigidity has improved by 63% on C36 versus R9100 series C40
