Shimano's Ultegra wheels continue to deliver a blend of performance and affordability that other manufacturers just can't touch. In this 6800 incarnation, they've added not only 11-speed compatibility, but upgraded to a lighter overall hub design.

The tubeless compatible alloy rims feature slightly different profiles, measuring 24mm up front and 23mm in the back. The slight variation in depth allows the WH-6800 to perfectly balance weight savings with an aerodynamic advantage. Shimano's specially shaped rim bed provides hassle-free performance with tubeless tires yet remains compatible with standard inner-tube-type clinchers as well.

For the hubs, the WH-6800 still uses smooth rolling angular contact ball bearings, and they've been made even easier to adjust thanks to the tool-free "digital click" system, so you can put the cone wrenches back in the tool box. Over-sized A7075 Alloy axles are incredibly rigid yet lightweight, and a wider rear flange spacing furthers stiffness even more. The addition of an 11-speed compatible freehub body ensures compatibility with Shimano's newest groupsets, while remaining back compatible with earlier design.

The WH-6800 features stainless double butted and bladed spokes. 16 spokes laced radially front with 20 spokes laced 2 cross in the rear. Off-set rear rim decreases "dish" for higher non-drive side spoke tension and increased durability. Black Rim/Spokes with alloy spoke nipples.

The Ultegra WH-6800 Wheelset is compatible with tubeless and traditional inner-tube-type clincher tires. Ultegra quick release skewers are included. For use with Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10/11-speed cassettes. Claimed weight: 1640 grams per wheelset.

Great Wheelset - Fantastic Customer Experience

These wheels are perfect. My Specialized came with a complete Ultegra groupset, except for the wheels. I was saving a lot of money for carbonaero wheels but at this price, I could not resist purchasing these WH-6800. These are good-looking wheels. On the scale, they were exactly 1640 grams. That is lighter than the European wheels that came on my Tarmac (though 200g heavier than the Dura Ace C24). The hubs roll really smooth and keep the wheels stiff under duress (hill climbs, sprints, bumpy roads). Rims are well designed and built. Stickers look discreet. Wheels looked perfectly true. To my ears, spokes tested at same pitch. Overall construction seemed pretty good. Packing and box was impeccable.On mine, I decided to install inner tubes and clinchers. Installation was tight but I learned how to do it in YouTube just with rubber gloves, no soap or anything else necessary. But yes, it was a tight fit. For the last month, they have performed really well on short rides and endurance rides. They roll smoothly, and so far have stayed true... In addition, BikeTiresDirect provided a great price, fast shipping included, discount, and VIP points. It was a great buy.

Awesome deal and great performance

I have a Trek Domanie 4.7 with the Ultegra package and was looking to replace the Original Bontrage wheels. i had my eyes on the Dura Ace 24 for quite a while but also had looked into the ultegra wheels that was about 2.5 times cheaper and excellent reviews. When bikes direct put these wheels on sale plus 30% discount it was too hard to say no and what a great deal!! I paid about $XXX with free shipping!!!

The ride on these wheels is awesome and cut about 1 lbs of weight. Bike Direct is an awesome store!!!

This is a nice wheelset.

I wanted a spare wheelset for training in the winter and I saw these. Took them to my team shop and they were perfectly trued out of the box. I run them with tubeless tires and I have not had an issue. They are very light, look great and the price was right. The Hutchinson tires were very tight to put on but it sealed well.

Nice and light, easy to mount clinchers

Set up on an older 9sp Ultegra drive train - just use the provided spacer. Mounted (and unmounted) 25c Continental Grand Prix clinchers easily by hand. You just need to make sure the bead is all the way down in the center channel opposite of where you are mounting.

Good components, but poor build quality

On paper, these wheels are great. Great hubs, good rims, tubeless-ready, and light. However, they have poor build quality. Out of the box, they looked fine upon visual inspection. However, being an experience wheel builder, I put these on the truing stand to discover that both wheels were out of true and out of round. Maybe some riders would consider them acceptable, but when a wheel is more than 18 out of true peak-to-peak, that is disappointing. The wheels ship with a pair of spoke wrenches for the job, which helped, but I was disappointed at the overall build quality for a set of wheels that have such potential, otherwise.

The wheel set for clydesdales

I am a 250 pound rider. Yup everyone loves it when this draft animal pulls! I have destroyed plenty of wheels in my day. I now have over 20,000 miles, yup 20,000 and have yet to knock them out of true or break a spoke. I do have them tensioned once a year which is about 5,000 miles but that's it. Had the bearings replaced at 15,000 just because. My only knock on them is the little plastic dust covers break easy and next to impossible to find replacements. I have to order them from England.

Great wheels and even better customer service

Just received these wheels and can't wait to put some miles on them. Wheels are just as they are described. Haven't mounted them yet but looks alone they are an A and I don't expect anything but pleasure from them. Also, had a slight shipping mishap called and talked with Ben and he cleared everything up quickly and professionally. I'll definitely continue to order from such a great company.
