PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Shimano RS30 Wheelset

The RS30 retains the same spec but got a sleek makeover for 2011. Perfectly suited as an everyday wheelset for either training or riding, the RS30 utilizes many of the same features found in Shimano's higher-end wheelsets.

Both wheels use bladed and butted straight pull spokes for enhanced durability and aerodynamics. The front wheel is radial laced with the rear being built in a 2 cross pattern with a specially offset rim for increased strength.

The RS30's free hub is 8, 9, or 10 speed compatible and fits both Shimano and Sram cassettes.

Durable wheelset for training and commuting - Apr 12, 2015

Fort Wayne, IN

After some discussion with my bike builder about wheels he recommended the no nonsense low cost Shimano RS30 wheels. I'm not racing so I didn't need a ultralight expensive wheel, I ride on rough streets so I needed a strong wheel that would hold up for many years and this set has banged across potholes, rough roads, ruts, rocks, gravel roads, etc and after 11,000 miles of this sort of thing it's still perfectly true. The wheels uses bladed spokes and a 30mm height for more aero efficiency, this is a deeper rim height than the black version of the same wheel. This would be an idea set of wheels for training, fitness, commuting, or leisure type of riding. The only con is the 105 hub set that came on mine are sealed cartridge bearing design and they don't roll as freely as a cup and cone design does, but for $250 for the pair what does a person expect to get for hubs? Chris King hubs? No way, but for $250 it's a fantastic bargain and better than any other sub $400 wheelset.

Decent. - May 29, 2013

I have used this set on my roadie and my commuting CX bike and it is a good value. It rolls smooth, is sturdy and true, just don't expect it to be aero. Mine whistle with 23c Michelins Pro4. Way too heavy for climbs so I put them on my commuter. They took curb hucks just fine. Basically, I would suggest the RS20 for a better all-around and inexpensive wheel.. only get this one on the basis of aesthetics.
