And while the hub isn’t an Ultegra, it’s very similar in quality. In the end, the RS81 are mid-level race-wheels that can be used daily or as training wheels. With the C24, you get a 24mm rim, which favors all-around performance. Although the rim profile has been redesigned to improve aerodynamic performance, the main advantage this wheelset offers is lightweight, which ideal for climbing. The aluminum rim means you can still use regular brake pads and that you need to deal with braking issues related to carbon clinchers. With super smooth hubs on the market, the RS81 wheels offer real performance and reliability. These wheels will make a huge improvement on your bike. If you’re looking for a wheelset to replace your original wheels the RS81 lineup provides you with hi-quality components at an affordable price, while being robust and very durable.
