If you are looking for a mid-tall aero wheelset that offers real benefits at a great price, and one this built with long term durability, serviceability, and everyday value in mind, the Ultegra WH-R8170-C60-TL Wheelset was built for you. The wheels are sold separately in this buying option, though a complete set option is also available. This is the Front Wheel In conjunction with the release of their 12-speed groupsets, Shimano also updated, redesigned, and rolled out impressive Ultegra-level wheelsets like this 60mm deep model. 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 proven hub technologies have been tapped into for their comprehensive strength, precision machining, and complete serviceability.

The mid-tall depth version of the rim is the 60mm R8170-C60-TL, a 1570 gram wheelset optimized for racing and riding when you can maximize the depth on rolling or flat roads where more aerodynamic value is utilized. 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. Braking control comes from the easy-to-use Shimano-developed Center Lock disc brake rotor mount that is now ubiquitous throughout road and gravel cycling. This Ultegra wheel saves you money at the hub, versus the Dura-Ace model, and while there is a weight penalty, the rotational weight is the same, making this cost-effective wheel efficient indeed.
