Really nice set of wheels, true from the box and weigh in at stated weight. They spin smooth and having a tubeless option gives great future proofing (not enough tyre choice in tubeless yet). Shimano quality and if looked after, as posted before, they will last years. Shimano stick with cup and cone and adopted tool free adjustment for the hubs. I know the choice is cartridge these days but Shimano know about bike equipment and they stick with this system through to Dura Ace, so good enough for me, and a time proven hub.
Great pricing and delivery from Merlin, despite loads of research I never find better wheel deals.
These were an upgrade from R500 and are fantastic.
So much stiffer and responsive.
A real bargain. Very light . Super smooth bearings on 6800 wheels come new Allen key disc cone adjuster so no need to fiddle with cone spanners. They look great too and come with 10 speed spacer so fine on 10 or 11 speed. They are tubeless compatible but I use standard tubed tyres as choice in road tubeless tyres is limited plus you would still need to carry a spare tube even when running tubeless tyres in case of puncture. The fact that they are tubeless means no rim tape needed. I have noticed they hold air when using tubes better than non tubeless wheels. Shimano performance and quality at a great price.
I've put probably 20,000 miles on my current set of these wheels and they are still going. I liked them enough to buy this set as a backup.
Great wheels, very firm. Really thrashed these on some of the more broken roads in Sydney, potholes and bumps everywhere, still remained true.
Added bonus for weight and tubeless design.
Great product, very light and stable!
