The Shimano WH-RS81 is a stylish wheelset with Dura Ace and Ultegra genes. Like its big brothers, it features Shimano manufactured carbon/alloy clincher wheels. In addition to the usual high-quality processing, the WH-RS81 offers a eye-catching look.

The OptBal 2:1 spoke lacing, means that the drive side features twice as many spokes as the non-drive side, enhances the wheel rigidity and durability, too.
