Until now, riders had to choose between aerodynamics for speed and low 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, faster on descents, faster in cross winds, you get the idea. And when the road turns up, these featherweights climb with the greatest of ease. Anywhere you roll, DT Swiss supplies their stellar star rachet hub internals for super-smooth action. Aerodynamics and low weight are yours with Aeolus!
