Bontrager Announce 4 New Road Wheelsets | Official Release

Bontrager has released a complete line-up of new Aeolus wheelsets that are designed to bring the lightweight performance of carbon wheels to every rider, from professional racers to weekend warriors.

Aeolus’ proven, stable designs deliver free speed without added weight and are brought to life through Bontrager’s industry-leading OCLV Carbon lay-up process. The new Aeolus carbon wheel models are available in three levels to give riders more performance and pricing options: RSL (Race Shop Limited), Pro and Elite.


Aeolus RSL 37 TLR Disc Road Wheelset

An ultra-light 37mm depth carbon road wheel that delivers speed and stability on climbs, crits, classics and more.

The Bontrager Aeolus RSL 37 tubeless, disc brake, carbon road wheelset for bicycles.
A tubeless ready, disc-brake wheelset weighing 1325 grams.

Made from Bontrager’s best OCLV Carbon, these ultra-light 37 mm wheels have an all-new rim shape that’s faster than deeper wheels and lighter than shallower wheels all while maintaining stability. Compared to their predecessors, the new shape is 30% deeper, making them 11% faster than before, and they weigh a mere 1,325g per set – 55g less than previous models. ‘We designed and built Aeolus RSL 37s for the pros of Trek-Segafredo,’ said Graham Wilhelm, Bontrager’s Director of Wheels and Tyres. ‘They’re the ultimate race wheel – they’re the lightest carbon aero road wheels we’ve ever made, and they add speed and confidence to every ride.’
