When you're racing against the clock you want every advantage you can find. That's why pro cycling teams rely on Bontrager's Aeolus 6.5 Wheels in important time trials at the Tour de France and triathletes race them during Ironmans. Designed by the aero master, Steve Hed, the 65mm rim cross section and unique shape offer superstar aerodynamics that slice through the wind like a surgeon's scalpel. And, the handmade OCLV carbon tubular rims are laced to silky-smooth Swiss-made hubs with bladed stainless-steel spokes and locking aluminum nipples for speed and durability.
Titanium skewers, valve extenders and Bontrager wheel bags included.
These wheels require carbon-specific brake pads (sold separately).
This wheel accepts tubular tires (sold separately). Bontrager recommends using 700 x 22c tubular tires to maximize aerodynamics.
The Swiss-made hub is smooth, light and durable.
For easy repairs, this wheel accepts standard replacement spokes.
