Review of Shimano's Dura Ace 7900 C50 Wheels


Shimano Dura-Ace Wheel Sets are focused on speed. New rim profiles yield substantial weight savings while maintaining the aerodynamic shapes. Dura-Ace Wheels are race tested at the highest levels of professional cycling to ensure the highest possible levels of performance and quality.

Shimano Dura Ace 7900 C50

  • WH-7900 50 mm carbon wheel earns the Dura-Ace pedigree and is designed to complement its 10-speed groupset meeting pro road race criteria.
  • 50 mm deep carbon rim with alloy braking surface for improved aerodynamics and increased rigidity.
  • 20 rear stainless steel butted and bladed straight pull spokes with a 2 cross lacing pattern improve lateral and torsional (power transmission) rigidity.
  • Quick pawl engagement for instant power transfer (every 10 degrees).
  • Labyrinth double contact sealing - low-friction seals effectively shut out water, mud and dirt without affecting rotational smoothness.
  • Borozon treated bearing races - super mirror finish bearing races reduce friction and provide a more precise bearing action.
  • Cold forged and machined aluminium hub shell and oversized 7075 alloy axle combined with a titanium freewheel body all keep the wheel weight to a minimum.
  • Easy digital click bearing adjustment.
  • 8,9 and 10-speed compatible rear wheel.
  • 700C tubular compatible.
