Hello,

Mine is Bianchi C2C Infinito 2010. I am thinking of upgrading the wheelsets. Today, I came across a Shimano WH-RS81 C24 Cabon Laminate wheels.

Weighs 1537 grams for both wheels without skewers.
Would it be a good match and upgrade to my Bianchi compared to the stock wheelsets?
I am a casual rider, averaging about 20 mph for 20~30 mile ride on flat road.

It would be good if you told us what your stock wheel set is. The Infinito came in quite a number of different builds.

The RS81 C24 is a very good wheel set which sits between Ultegra and Dura-Ace in Shimano's hierarchy.

The current wheels are Fulcrum Racing 7.
Thanks.

The RS81 is a definite upgrade, but don't go larger with tyres than 25 mm, as there is no room on the 1st generation Infinito for wider.

Hmmm...thought my Intenso was the old Infinito frame. As I look at it, sure looks like you could go above 25mm tires.

It's not. No 1st gen Infinito bits on the Intenso.
