Details

Until now, serious riders had to choose between aerodynamics for speed and light weight for climbing. Enter, Bontrager's Aeolus 5 D3 wheels. Named after the Greek God of the Winds, these full-carbon beauties are handmade in Wisconsin from OCLV carbon, and boast 50mm-deep rims and a Tour-proven shape for perfectly optimized aerodynamics at any yaw angle. They're faster on flats, they're faster on climbs, you get the idea. DT Swiss supplies their stellar 240 hub for super-smooth action. And when the road turns up, these slick aero hoops climb with the greatest of ease. No compromises, no holding back, no more questions, there is only one choice.

    Comments:

    These clincher wheels are the best I've ever ridden. They are light, fast, and crazy stiff. I've broken spokes on other wheel sets, but these wouldn't even budge.
