    • Quick and easy to maintain digital click bearing adjustment

Excellent wheels - shame about the brake-track milling.

Rear wheel has a poorly milled brake-track at the join and is causing it to pulse under brakes. At this price the quality of the rim should be impeccable. Shame Shimano ☹️

Very good servive

Competitive price Easy to track order until delivery

just great

Bought those wheels last year and made over 2000 klm with them , i just could not believe the difference with the wheels that came with the bike what an upgrade. great value wheels performence and style just great buy,


I totally love the RS81 C35 as they cut into the wind with no issues. Faster and so much more enjoyable on the road, gotta love the new aero technology. I recommend them.

RS81 C35

Took less then a week to receive!.... Extremely good service! Install wheels with 25mm tires the next day and give it a try. I had alloy wheels that came with the bike. WOW! what a difference! Wheels are light, very comfortable and I go faster! Even in the hills I see a big difference. It's been 3 weeks so far with over 500km and I love them. Very good quality wheels for the price. Very satisfied.


Just as advertised! Wheels came in 1 week to the US and were perfect. I'll use again!

RS81 Review

Nice, smooth wheel set. I have put on about 400 miles on them since I got them and are very please with the way they have performed.

Ultegra RS81 C35

Moderately light wheel set but solid feel. Felt good in sprints and seemed to help in climbs. No complaints. I weight 230lbs and average 3000 miles yearly. I'm a non racer but love doing Centuries. Will review again after 2000 miles.

A solid training wheel that outshines its DURA-ACE big brother for value.

I purchased this set of wheels after trying a set of Fulcrum Quattros which kept failing. These have a lighter feel out on the road but also maintain a sense of quality and robustness. With only a 100g penalty compared to the DURA-ACE version, these wheels shine in the value stakes and are very good-looking too.


These wheels though heavier then my previous RS-80 wheel set (mostly due to the the depth increase from 23 to 35mm) are incredibly rigid and strong. Every kilowatt of energy gets transfered through these wheels and onto the road. The wheels also handle road ruts and cracks with out a concern that the wheels may have been put out of true or cracked in any way. Certainly great for training but also for races. Crosswinds are a concern with the depth at 35mm as opposed to 23mm. These wheels were true coming out of the box and to be honest I don't think I will have to true them for a long time. That is just how solid and tight they have been built.
