Shimano Ultegra WH-RS500 Road Wheelset - Tubeless

We would never think of riding a mountain or gravel bike that wasn't shod with tubeless tires. The ability to run lower pressures and the increased flat prevention can't go unnoticed. At the same time as it's been a little bit slower to catch on with the road set, more road tubeless tires are currently available and the technology, materials, and performance have vastly improved. Shimano has been on the forefront of road tubeless know-how from the get-go and the Japanese bicycle component manufacture has been delivering tubeless road wheel options for over a decade. Adding to their current lineup and bringing road tubeless to the masses is the durable Ultegra level WH-RS500 wheelset weighing in at just 1649 grams and built for rim brake use.Shimano's aluminum rims with their machined brake tracks promise superior braking in all weather conditions. The 24mm deep rim profile ensure quick acceleration and a comfortable ride. The 20. 8mm external width (15mm internal) provides great support for tires. The front wheel is built to a high-tension on 16 stainless steel straight-pull spokes to deliver a responsive ride and increase aerodynamics. A 14mm oversize alloy axle increases stiffness and we are big fans of Shimano's cup and cone bearing system as it has proven to be easy to adjust and maintain and it spins effortlessly. The rear wheel is laced with 20 spokes in a 2-cross pattern on both the drive and non-drive side and can handle high-torque big ring efforts without flinching. The freehub is made of steel which is quite durable and prevents individual cogs from digging into the body.The rim bed is designed for road tubeless tires but is fully compatible with standard clincher tires and tubes as well. Tire widths between 23-32mm are fully supported and the wheels performed very well with our preferred road width of 25-28mm. The max recommend weight limit on the wheelset is 220 pounds. The freehub is 11-speed compatible and, with a 1. 8mm spacer, can be used for 9 or 10 speed d...

    About Us

    We get people who get outside - plain and simple. Backcountry began in 1996 with two guys and a stack of avalanche beacons in an apartment in Park City, Utah. Our roots were humble, but our vision was clear: to provide the best outdoor gear to connect people with their passions. Sometimes, even the path less traveled can feel well worn, so we make our own way. We owe it to ourselves and our customers to be innovative, to take risks, and to reach remarkable new territory.

    Today, we offer a broad selection of gear from premium outdoor brands, we back that gear with guaranteed returns, and our shipping is lightning-fast.

    We have deep roots in Utah, and we thrive on the trails and in the mountains surrounding Park City. Our corporate headquarters sits just north of old town Park City and within a quick pedal or a few footsteps of the Wasatch mountains.
