Named after the Greek God of the Winds, Bontrager's Aeolus 5.0 Wheels were designed by the gurus at Hed Cycling. Handmade in Waterloo, Wisconsin from OCLV carbon, these stellar hoops have a 50mm cross section and a tour-proven shape for perfectly optimized aerodynamics. The redesigned hub features an aerodynamic profile and improves the already-fast engagement, for acceleration that puts any wheel suckers deep in the pain cave. When the road turns up, these feather-weight carbon beauties climb with the greatest of ease. And of course, there is simply no better ride than with tubulars.
These wheels accept clincher tires (sold separately). Bontrager recommends using 700 x 22c clincher tires to maximize aerodynamics.
For easy repairs, these wheels accept standard replacement spokes.
The Swiss-made hubs are smooth, light and durable.
These wheels require carbon-specific brake pads (sold separately).
