Shimano RS700 TL – Tubeless Wheel Review

Shimano RS700 TL - Tubeless Wheel

Once in a while Shimano create a technology that no one else has thought of, and that’s what we’re seeing with the carbon laminate rim of which these 30mm deep RS700s-the first in the country. Originally found on DuraAce, carbon laminate has come down the range but are also been refined in this latest generation.

The rim is covered with a thin layer of carbon fiber to give that carbon aesthetic whilst retaining an alloy brake surface, which also just happens to offer a fabulous ride, too. Weight is 1,601 g, and the rim measures 21mm externally so is suitable for 23-32c tyres.
