Be the fastest you
Bontrager’s all-new Aeolus RSL wheels represent a step-change in speed for every rider. They’re made from Bontrager’s lightest-weight OCLV Carbon, shaped into their most wind-defying aerodynamic designs, and built on a wider 23mm inner rim in most depths for a more stable, smoother, faster-rolling wheel/tire system.
A third dimension of speed
In the past, Bontrager’s optimization process was done in 2D - but by leveraging cloud computing, they’re now able to run the entire process in 3D. Running the analysis in 3D allows them to more accurately account for every gram of drag, in every direction, through every plane, and across all aspects of the wheel/tire system.
They didn’t stop there, either. They also optimized for rolling resistance, landing on a wider 23mm inner width proven to roll with less drag and add to the overall speed gains.
Bontrager built Aeolus RSL wheels in the pursuit of ultimate speed for every rider. They’re significantly faster than previous Aeolus models, and these speed gains don’t come at the sake of stability.
A depth for every ride
Aeolus RSL wheels are available in multiple depths (37mm, 51mm, 62mm, and 75mm), each designed to meet the demands of a specific kind of ride. The all-new Aeolus Pro RSL 51 shares the same rim design, shape, and technology in a more value-oriented Pro-level spec.
RSL-level OCLV Carbon is the lightest and strongest available, and the key to creating Bontrager's fastest rim shapes ever.
Wider is faster
The wider 23mm inner width is proven to roll with less drag, provide a better aerodynamic connection with tires, and add to the overall speed gains. Plus, it lets you run lower tire pressures for a smoother, less fatiguing ride.
DT Swiss 240 with Ratchet EXP
The all-new lighter-weight Ratchet EXP freehubs are built with proven DT Swiss 240s internals for consistent engagement and a smooth, fast-rolling feel.
Easily set your wheelset up tubeless with Bontrager TLR rim strips or use a rim tape system for the lightest setup possible.
We’re committed to speed at all price points, and what we’ve learned developing our fastest wheels ever makes all Aeolus wheelsets better. Free speed, performance, and incredible aerodynamics are available at Pro- and Elite-level budgets.
