I just received a new set of Shimano Dura-Ace wheels WH-7850-C24-CL Carbon Clincher wheels. Features from the Shimano website:

  • Pro-Tour performance with the convenience of clinchers
  • Patent pending Shimano carbon-alloy composite construction
  • Aerodynamic 24mm profile rims
  • New titanium freehub body w/quick engagement
  • New wider flange hubs and offset rear rim for increased rigidity and power transmission
  • Shimano quality proven angular contact bearings with oversize 7075 alloy axles
  • Weight: 1386g (pair)

I will be evaluating them over a few rides.  These wheels are part of the make-over for Felicia my 2010 Felt F2 with Di2.

    • Andy,

      Thank you for reading my blog.

      I absolutely love the Dura-Ace wheels. If you are in the market for a set of wheels give this wheelset some serious consideration. They are light, stiff, and offer incredible ride quality!
