The Aeolus 3 is Bontrager’s lightest wheelset. At 1454g for a disc clincher, this is aimed at climbers, cyclocross racers, or those looking for a great carbon all-rounder.
The Aeolus 3 brings true aero performance to a more climber-oriented wheelset, which makes it stand out. Its lightweight will allow you to push hard on climbs, while the aerodynamic advantage the 35mm profile provides will help you maintain speed on flat roads.
With 35mm deep rims and a wider very aerodynamic shape, Bontrager claim the Aeolus 3 is more aero than a 45mm deep Zipp 303, which is a solid achievement, considering how the Aeolus weights 190g less. Another benefit of the 35mm rim, especially for lighter riders, is that you won’t be affected by crosswinds.
OCLV carbon is ultra-light, compliant and durable, making these wheels very comfortable. They’re also quite robust, which means you don’t to need to worry about rough pavement.
