Why We Like The Shimano Dure-Ace WH-R9270 C36 Carbon Road Wheelset

Built for quick accelerations with noticeable aero gains, the new Dura-Ace R9270 C36 wheelset offers great all-around performance without sacrificing head and crosswind stability. The all-new C36 design shaves mass at every opportunity but especially at the rim. The result is a wheel that gets up to speed quickly thanks to reduced rotational weight.


Both the carbon rim and carbon hub are lighter than previous generations of Dura-Ace, so the C36 won't shy away from a day of climbing. The new rim is 36mm deep and still delivers good aerodynamic efficiency despite its gossamer weight. Meanwhile, the hub features an alloy freehub body and a new engagement mechanism for increased rigidity.

Good Wheels

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Nice and light, roll true, but wish the rear hub was smoother. I’ve always judged wheels on how well the rear hub spins when it’s sitting in the stand and you free wheel it. These are sluggish and I can’t help but think it slows you down when riding. I’ve experienced the same thing with my Zipp 303, but I was hoping these would be better. Comparatively, my Hunt rear wheel will spin forever.
