Shimano make some of the best hubs about and the Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed hubs are no exception. They come with a spacer for 8/9/10 speed cassettes. Both hubs use angular cup and cone bearings for long life. Keep the serviced and the mileage you can get from them is huge. The Cycle Clinic recommends that all high end Shimano hubs are serviced every ~5000 miles (depending on conditions).
The dark grey H Plus Son Archetype rims is a good colour match for these Ultegra 6800 hubs. Silver spokes just set of off well. Ultegra 6800 hubs like all Shimano hubs are cup and cone.
The spokes chosen reflect the use intended for the wheels. As the Ultegra 6800 hubs are not the lightest I opt for sapim race all round.
Lacing is 3x front and 4x rear.
This wheelset speaks for itself - freedom to whoever ride's them.
There is a life time warranty against spoke failure.
The wheel are 700c and have 100/130mm spacing. Simply lovely looking but robust wheels with hub that give a new meaning to reliable.
