The Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 C60 Carbon Tubular Disc Front Wheel features improved aerodynamic properties thanks to its 60 mm deep, 24 mm wide carbon rim. The deeper rim reduces air turbulence caused by air flow over the spokes, so increasing the straight line speed of the C60. The wider rim profile allows for wider tyres to be run helping reduce air resistance by creating a more linear contour between tyre and rim. The use of wider tyres also produce lower rolling resistance and change the angle of the contact patch, thus improving cornering behaviour. The Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 C60 Carbon Tubular Disc Front Wheel takes advantage of straight pull bladed spokes with a wide flange hub and offset rim to improve drive rigidity making acceleration quicker and more efficient. This efficiency and rigidity are increased with the 12 mm E-Thru axle for a stiff and compliant ride. If you're a driven triathlete or road racer the Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 C60 Carbon Tubular Disc Front can improve your race times and training rides.
