The Shimano WH-RS81 C24 is a brilliant example of trickle down technology at its finest. The carbon lamination/ alloy-construction paired with double butted, straight-pull spokes enhance durability and stiffness for the most efficient transferring of power. The carbon laminate profile keeps weight to a bare minimum, while the alloy brake track offers better braking performance and stopping power than one would get from a carbon brake track. Weighing at a mere 1,520 grams, the minimal weight alone makes the RS81 a sweet climbing wheel. Pair its lightweight with its low profile and power transfer, and you have an even sweeter wheel for pedaling uphill. However, the RS81 doesn't stop at climbing, and is a reliable, do-it-all wheel that won't shy away in the sprints or solo attacks.
