The Shimano WH-RS500 Tubeless Clincher Wheelset is a lightweight, durable wheelset that's ready to train, race, or crush the unpredictable roads ahead. Building off of the success of their WH-6800 wheelset, this wheelset provides Ultegra-level performance at a more budget-friendly price. Featuring a 20.8mm wide tubeless-ready rim, the WH-RS500 performs best with tires between 23-28mm wide, while the 24mm deep rim provides a slight aerodynamic advantage without being affected by varying wind conditions. The low-profile rim spins up quickly, performing well in both sprints or climbs.

The WH-RS500 Wheelset includes quick-release skewers, rim strips, and a 10 speed cassette adapter.


Features:

  • Brake type: rim brake.
  • Claimed weight: 705g (front), 944g (rear), 1649g (wheelset).Tubeless-ready aluminum 20.8mm wide rim.
  • Rim depth: 24mm.

Great wheelset for the price

Had a set of these before they rebranded them from Ultegra to the RS500. I ended up tacoing the front wheel in a sweet maneuver and had to replace the wheelset.

These are great quality. Excellent weight to price ratio, and as I mostly ride these on gravel, good durability too! So far at least.

Seems Unquestionably the Best Choice for Me

I've had these now for a few months and probably have 500 or so miles on them consisting of several 25-ish mile rides and a few 50 miles rides. I've had no problems with them. They are smooth, fast, and attractive. I would have never believed that wheels, particularly at this price, would have an appreciable effect on my speed. But then there I was, looking down at the computer, ride after ride, until I became convinced that I had picked up 1-2mph. And the old wheels weren't particularly heavy!

There are lighter and faster wheels but get to a significantly better wheel, you would probably need to double the price and then some.

So, if you are a casual rider who needs to replace their wheels and wouldn't mind a modest increase in performance, get these instead of the bargain basement wheels. If you have an entry-midlevel bike with stock 2000 gram wheels, this would be a sensible upgrade (and weight saver) for those without unlimited budgets.

The hub is quiet-ish, not silent, but not annoying.

Great wheel set for the cost.

I have several hundred miles on these and like them. Lighter than most at the price point. Quality manufacturing. Hubs roll effortlessly!

Very happy. Own two sets. Like not worrying about flats.

If I had a third bike, then I would purchase a third set. Especially at the sale price. I race back-of-the-pack triathlon and enjoy the peace of mind they give me. I have used them for three years on the tri bike and have never had a flat - ever. I use Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless tires (linked below) and change the sealant twice each year. The set on my road bike is one year old and again, never a flat. Additionally, they will take tires up to 28mm wide. I have never ridden an expensive set of wheels on my own bike so I cannot compare to questions like, how fast do they spin up? etc. They seem to ride as well and the aero wheels that came with the tri bike and with the Mavic wheels that came with the road bike. I see some people complain about adjusting any Shimano hub, yet I have never adjusted them, so I cannot comment on how easy or difficult they are to adjust.

Good Value for Mid Range replacement Wheel.

The wheel set arrived well packed, true and in perfect shape. Noticed when spun the rear wheel it didn't continue rotating very long and was noisy. Possibly the bearing seal were dragging. After a hundred miles the drag went away but the noise from the hub remained. I will take them apart for inspection or have a bike shop take a look.
