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, 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. Anyway you go, DT Swiss's stellar star-ratchet hub internals deliver 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, the choice is clear.
