 WH-RS500 wheelset weighing in at just 1649 grams and built for rim brake use.

Shimano's aluminium rims with their machined brake tracks promise superior braking in all weather conditions. The 24mm deep rim profile ensures quick acceleration and a comfortable ride. The 20.8mm external width (15mm internal) provides great support for tires.

The front wheel is built to a high-tension on 16 stainless steel straight-pull spokes to deliver a responsive ride and increase aerodynamics.

A 14mm oversize alloy axle increases stiffness and we are big fans of Shimano's cup and cone bearing system as it has proven to be easy to adjust and maintain and it spins effortlessly.

The rear wheel is laced with 20 spokes in a 2-cross pattern on both the drive and non-drive side and can handle high-torque big ring efforts without flinching.

The freehub is made of steel which is quite durable and prevents individual cogs from digging into the body. The rim bed is designed for road tubeless tires but is fully compatible with standard clincher tires and tubes as well.

Tire widths between 23-32mm are fully supported and the wheels performed very well with our preferred road width of 25-28mm. The max recommends weight limit on the wheelset is 220 pounds. The freehub is 11-speed compatible and, with a 1.8mm spacer, can be used for 9 or 10-speed drivetrains too.

The rim and hub are anodized grey and the stainless steel spokes and alloy nipples are black. Included are Shimano's excellent internal-cam quick release skewers and rim tape.

  • One of the best all-around wheelsets for racers on a budget
  • Aluminium rims offer great braking performance
  • Tubeless-ready design alloys for more plush traction
  • Steel freehub is durable and prevents cogs from digging in
  • Cup-and-cone bearings are user-friendly to maintain
  • Compatible with 11-speed drivetrains, or 9- and 10-speed with included spacer
