The Shimano RS171 is a robust and reliable wheelset for disc-brake gravel, road, cyclocross, and adventure bikes. The WH-RS171 offers a high level of stiffness and riding stability at the entry-level segment at an accessible price point for all cyclists, without sacrificing technology.
The strong alloy rims have a rim width of 19mm, pairing well with modern, wider tire road bikes. The solid hub technology is equipped with a thru-axle and Center lock disc rotor mount, allowing the security you want during off-camber descents and muddy hairpin turns.

I bought this wheelset to run in winter with studded tires. Itï¿½s heavy but can dead true and hubs roll smooth. This is probably the nicest cheapest thru axle wheelset you can get
As a bonus the cassette and disc mounts align perfectly with my DT Swiss 240 hubs so these can be swapped with zero adjustments
