The Shimano Dura Ace R9270 C60 Road Bike Wheels for disc brakes are compatible with both tubeless and clincher tires. Shimano has focused intensively on achieving maximum aerodynamics, stiffness, and power transfer. The Shimano Dura Ace R9270 C60 wheels, with an internal rim width of 21mm and an external rim width of 28mm, are particularly suitable for 28mm or wider tires, significantly reducing air resistance. Designed for sprinters, the Shimano Dura Ace C60 wheels feature a taller rim profile, a stiffer spoke pattern, and thicker spokes compared to the C50 wheels. Additionally, a direct engagement hub ensures quick engagement when starting.

Ride Characteristics:
The Shimano Dura Ace C60 wheels offer a remarkably comfortable ride. Unlike other high-profile carbon wheels, which often require acclimatization in terms of wind stability and descents, the Shimano Dura Ace wheels feel right from the start. You barely notice you are riding with C60 wheels. They respond instantly with each pedal stroke, and despite their C60 height, they are perfectly suitable for climbing. High-speed descents feel stable and not at all twitchy, and the wheels corner very directly.

The air resistance of the Shimano Dura Ace R9270 C60 has been significantly reduced, thanks in part to the wide rim profile with a 28mm external width. Air resistance is considerably lower with a rim of these dimensions. Compared to the Shimano Dura Ace R9100 C40 wheels, there's an impressive saving of 5.1 watts in air resistance with a lower-profile rim. Furthermore, an additional 1 watt has been saved compared to the Shimano Dura Ace R9100 C60 tubular wheel. This improvement is achieved while maintaining other qualities such as stiffness, comfort, and control.

To achieve higher stiffness, a 2:1 spoke pattern has been added to the front wheel. Stronger spokes of 1.8mm thickness are used for optimal stiffness without increasing weight. Stiffer riding characteristics are further enhanced by the direct pedal feel during acceleration, achieved through the development and addition of the Direct Engagement system to the rear hub. Consequently, the power transmission efficiency has increased by 63%.

Every gram counts when it comes to rotational mass. Despite the rims becoming significantly wider, Shimano's team has managed to make rims lighter than their predecessors. A set of Shimano Dura Ace R9270 C60 wheels is 161 grams lighter than the previous Shimano R9170 C40 wheels. This is immediately noticeable during acceleration, climbing, or maintaining speed with your Shimano Dura Ace wheels.
