THE SCIENCE OF SPEED: Shimano Ultegra WH-R8170-TL Center-Lock
Great speed means great responsibility. That’s why, faced with the task of making the new ULTEGRA groupset even faster, Shimano decided to take a holistic and 100% performance-focused approach. Shimano’s new 12-speed road groupset delivers unparalleled control and comfort anytime, anywhere – whether you’re competing in an amateur race, chasing your personal best, or out for a social ride. That is “Science of Speed”. And it’s what sets SHIMANO apart from the rest.
The ULTEGRA WH-R8170-TL is a true gem in the new wheelset line-up. With a lighter, wider full carbon rim and a lighter hub, the WH-R8170-TL is perfectly equipped for climbs in the mountains. The new rims with 36 mm, 50 mm and 60 mm high profile – offer good aerodynamic properties despite their extremely low weight. The tubeless, carbon rim features a 21 mm internal width that pairs nicely with wider, modern tires while the HYPERGLIDE cassette body is compatible with 11 and 12-speed cassettes.
