Waterloo, WI – Last fall, we got a first look at Bontrager’s newest cyclocross tubeless tires, the CX0 and CX3, at Interbike 2014. The company has just recently unveiled their newest Aeolus race wheel line to match the tires: They are complete as a tubeless-ready carbon rim paired to Bontrager hubs with DT Swiss internals.
The line, labeled the Aeolus 3 through 9 depending on rim thickness, comes equipped with disc brake options, but can also be used with Carbon Stop Cork brake pads on a rim brake system. All models have a spoke count of 18 in the front and 24 in the rear, and don’t have a rider weight limit. The profile of all four models has a 27mm outer width with a 19.5mm inner width.
The Aeolus 3 TLR, with the 30mm rim depth, weighs in at 1356g, while the Aeolus 5 TLR weighs 1440g with a 50mm rim depth. Both of these models will retail for $2850. The Aeolus 7 TLR weighs 1608g, while the Aeolus 9 TLR weighs 1812g, with these thicker wheelsets both having an MSRP of $3000.
