A hard to find option for those looking for building their own highlydurable wheelset with more spokes than normal road wheelsets.
In the wake of the success of the 11 Speed Dura Ace 9000 group, Shimanohas recently revealed that the 11 Speed sensation was moving down theline to the more affordable Ultegra 6800 group. Upgrades on the Ultegra6800 Hubs go beyond the addition of an extra speed! In order to bringthe Ultegra tubeless wheels up to date with the new 11 speed suit, 6800hubs have been updated with a new freehub that features a new conedigital adjustment system designed to diffuse quick release tension,reducing the load on the bearings to enable smoother spinning andincreased durability. In place of the double lock system normally foundon most cup and cone hubs is a ratcheting ring hidden under an end cap.To adjust it you simply remove the end cap with a 5mm allen, and rotatethe ring to eliminate any play in the bearings.
