Description

The Wider and Lighter Wheelset for Road, Gravel, and Cyclocross — Shimano RS171

The Shimano RS171 is a robust and reliable wheelset for disc-brake gravel, road, cyclocross, and adventure bikes. The WH-RS171 offers a high level of stiffness and riding stability at the entry-level segment at an accessible price point for all cyclists, without sacrificing technology.

The strong alloy rims have a rim width of 19mm, pairing well with modern, wider tire road bikes. The solid hub technology is equipped with a thru-axle and Center lock disc rotor mount, allowing the security you want during off-camber descents and muddy hairpin turns.

WH-RS171 CX Wheelset Features:

  • Wider and lighter
  • 19C wide-profile rim provides better performance with wider tires
  • More than 100 g lighter than the previous model (WH-RS170)
  • Shimano quality and technology
  • Rigid 12 mm axle for both front and rear
  • E-THRU
  • Reliable disc brake system
  • Center Lock mount
  • 140 mm disc brake rotor compatible

    Great wheelset for money

    I bought this wheelset to run in winter with studded tires. It�s heavy but can dead true and hubs roll smooth. This is probably the nicest cheapest thru axle wheelset you can get

    As a bonus the cassette and disc mounts align perfectly with my DT Swiss 240 hubs so these can be swapped with zero adjustments

    Best bang for your buck

    I�ve only got a few rides in so far so can�t say much about long-term durability but the Wheelset exceeded my expectations. They feel snappy and roll fast. Thumbs are going up. ??

    Great wheelset

    These wheels are used as a second set for my winter riding through ice and snow. Thanks to the guidance of the sales person at Bike Tires Direct, I got the right Shimano rear cluster and associated tool to go with these wheels. The quality of this wheelset is very good. I have studded snow tires mounted on them.
