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, a Tour-proven shape for perfectly optimized aerodynamics at any yaw angle, and the silky-smooth ride of tubular tires. 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.
