The new Ultegra 6700 wheelsets are in: click here

I thought I’d take 5 mins to take some pics (with the new super duper camera) of the rims and hubs. Out of the box they look good and certainly seem light. The front with its lack of spokes (16) looks great and cutting edge. The rear has 20. This new wheelset is tubeless tyre compatible along with the normal clincher tyre. There is no access to spokes from inside the rim, instead you have a nice smooth surface. To allow water out of the rim there is a drain hole and also useful wear indicators on the rim to tell you when they’ve had enough.

They come supplied with quick releases and a small spoke spanner.
