Shimano Dura Ace R9170 Carbon Disc Rear Wheel
The Shimano Dura Ace R9170 Carbon Disc Rear Wheel features a 40mm deep disc specific carbon rim combined with a Shimano centre lock disc hub. This lightweight, high-performing wheelset provides top of the range acceleration, highspeed control and exceptional braking performance in all weather conditions.
Greater Traction and Cornering Agility
The C40 rim that Shimano has used for this build features a 24mm width that allows riders to use wider tyres. A wider tyre creates a larger contact patch with the road and means a more linear bond between tyre and rim is achieved. This is instantly noticeable when riding, giving the rider greater traction, cornering agility and much higher levels of stability at speed.
Shimano E-Thru Axle
This exceptional rim is laced into an aluminium hub using straight-pull bladed spokes, which provide competition level stiffness and aerodynamics. To increase stiffness even further, this wheel has been designed to be used with the Shimano E-Thru dropout standard. This securely holds the wheel in place within the frame dropouts and due to the nature of the threaded axle engagement, the frame also features much less flex in every riding situation.
