Shimano has been in the wheel business for awhile, producing some of the finest high-performance wheelsets around. Sometimes, though, our customers are looking for a durable, long-life wheelset that won't hold them back on their road bike.

That used to be easy. Walk in, buy wheels, install tires and cassette, install onto bike and go ride. But disc brakes and thru-axles have made the wheel marketplace a bit more complicated. The Shimano RS770 C30 wheelset is a solid choice in an otherwise cluttered world of wheels.

Shimano started with a pair of machined alloy thru-axle hubs that anchor the spokes as far outboard as possible. The rear hub has twice the spokes laced to the drive side as on the non-drive, ensuring more even tension that improves overall spoke life and ride quality. Called "Optibal", this spoke assembly is found on Shimano's finest Dura-Ace wheels. The spokes themselves are stainless steel, butted, and have straight-pull spoke heads instead of a "J-bend" for excellent durability and ride quality. They're even bladed to improve wheel aerodynamics. The hubs themselves boast contact seals, ensuring long bearing life. Disc brake rotors install with a centerlock ring rather than a 6-bolt installation, reducing overall hub weight further. The hub axles are made from 7075-series aluminum for outstanding lateral rigidity and low weight.

The rims feature a carbon laminate structure onto an aluminum body that reduces rotating mass for easier acceleration. The rims are tubeless-ready, allowing the installation of the latest road tires. A pair of gasketed valve stems and sealent is needed to complete the installation.  

Recommended tire size for this wheelset: 25-38mm
