Details: Virtually every performance oriented rider likes a light, dependable wheel set. And if you can get an aero profile while keeping the weight below 1400 grams - even better. The rims on the WH-9000-C35-TU wheels have a 35mm profile which if perfect for riders leery of deep section rims but wanting an aero benefit. The lower rim weight also comes into play in booting acceleration and climbing performance. The WH-9000-C35-CL is 11-speed compatible and comes with a 1.85mm spacer so it will work with 10, 9, 8-speed and SRAM too. Other differences over the WH-7900 wheels include improved hub flanges that are 7mm wider for increased strength and a now 100% titanium freehub body for lower weight. Styling is a bit sharper with a new black anodized hub finish, black spokes and nipples and a glossier finish on the rim.
