For many of us, upgrading to a new road bike is asking a bit much. Your current road or triathlon bicycle might have become an old friend that fits well and has excellent road manners. But sometimes you just want to feel like you're getting more out of every pedal stroke when you climb aboard that familiar machine. The best upgrade you can make to your bike is a better set of wheels, and Bontrager has just released a stunning set of carbon fiber wheels that are surprisingly affordable.

The Aeolus Pro 3 wheelset uses the same OCLV carbon fiber technology found in Trek's world-beating road machines. Thanks to that miracle material, the Aeolus Pro 3 wheelset boasts incredibly low weight, giving any bicycle a faster, more nimble feel that leaps out of every corner. The 35mm rim profile helps to slice though the air cleanly, reducing effort at high speeds. Crosswinds can be an issue with many deep-section carbon fiber wheels, but Trek's engineers have devised a more bullet-nosed rim profile that reduces lateral instability in gusty conditions. Called D3 (for Dual Directional Design), the rim's leading edge is effective at handling headwinds and crosswinds alike. DT Swiss supplies the bladed stainless steel spokes, enhancing lateral strength while reducing drag further. The Aeolus Pro 3 wheels are great for going fast, but can also handle reigning in that speed with included Black Prince brake pads and an enhanced carbon fiber braking track that reduces heat buildup. The Aeolus Pro 3 hubs feature a 24-point engagement cassette body, and are designed to swap between QR skewers to thru-axles with different end caps (sold separately).

With wider tires becoming more prevalent in racing and recreational riding, the Aeolus Pro 3 was designed to take more comfortable rubber. A 19.5mm internal rim width allows wider tires to produce a rounder contact patch on the pavement, enhancing ride quality, reducing rolling resistance and improving cornering grip. The Aeolus Pro 3 wheelset comes with tubeless-ready TLR rim strips and gasketed tubless-ready TLR valve stems, if you're ready to take the plunge into tubeless road tires. Classic rim strips are also included, if you're still a fan of inner-tubed tires.
