Shimano RX830 Carbon Disc Rear Road Wheel
Shimano is pleased to announce the latest addition to its wheel line. Shimano's WH-RX830 wheelset is the perfect compliment to Shimano's R785 road hydraulic disc brakes. With 10 and 11-speed compatibility, a wide 17C tubeless, carbon laminate rim, and Centerlock rotor mounting the WH-RX830 is optimized for miles and miles of reliable, lightweight performance. Shimano is here with a road disc wheel that is competitively priced and offers excellent features for the enthusiast. It is disc only so there is no braking surface in the outer carbon fiber laminate shell. But there still exists an aluminum skeleton for strength and solid tubeless compatibility. It is 11-speed compatible but it will still work 10 speed clusters. The internal rim width is wide at 17c, allowing the tire to sit better for more volume and cornering traction. And finally, the rim is a little deeper and the wheel is very stiff, following the Acceleration Concept technology of Shimano which maximizes stiffness while minimizing weight. And finally, high quality ball bearings and races, are used on these wheels for the best durability while still providing drag-free performance. Sealed bearing and expensive ceramic types are interesting for design and axle compatibility is concerned. But for drag-free and wobble-free performance for years to come, the Shimano cup and cone bearing system fits the bill. Features: Acceleration concept, 17C, carbon laminated tubeless rim Ultegra level 10 and 11-speed compatible freehub 135mm OLD 140mm Centerlock rotor compatible High quality sealing Cup & Cone bearing system Quick release only

About Shimano Cycling Gear
Shimano are a Japanese manufacturer primarily known for their cycling components, and to a lesser extent shoes and clothing. Founded in 1921, Shimano is widely believed to be the largest cycling component manufacturer in the world, having reached this status through a combination of innovation, reliability and value for money. Whatever your style of riding, whether it be road or MTB, Shimano will have a component range to suit your level and budget, from the low end Alivio and Tiagra to the professional standard XTR and Dura-Ace. Over the years, Shimano have revolutionised bicycle gear, brake and pedal systems, such as the recessed SPD, Hollowtech crank arms and smooth shifting Hyperglide sprockets. Initially their component range faced competition from Suntour, whereas nowadays their primary rivals for market share are SRAM and Campagnolo.
