The Aeolus 5 is Bontrager’s most versatile aero wheelset. With 50mm deep rims, you get a lot of speed on flat roads and on descents and at 1440g, this aero wheel is light, which means they won’t feel slow on climbs.
With 50mm deep rims and a wider very aerodynamic shape, Bontrager claim the Aeolus 5 is more aero than a 58mm deep Zipp 404, which is a solid achievement, considering how the Aeolus weights an amazing 250g less. Although they’re 50mm deep, crosswinds are not much of an issue with the Aeolus 5. The wider shape works well even on windier days.
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.
This wheelset is the complete aero package. It offers real aero performance, while being lighter than most.
