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. Even the hub itself is aero. And, when the road turns up, these feather-weight carbon beauties climb with the greatest of ease.
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).

- Good Breaking Surface
- Stays True
Over 500 miles on them so far, set up with Stans No Tubes, Fusion 3 Tubeless Tires and Swiss Yellow Stop Pads. Total weight with bike & rider 230# - no flats and wheels still true (85# F-90# R air). You can feel the crosswinds but no problem with brake fade (not that many long descents in Nebraska) Do not know what the future will hold with these carbons, but so far so good.
