Carbon fiber wheels used to be only about aerodynamics. The Aeolus Pro 3 adds so much more to your ride...

The deeper the rim depth, the faster the wheel, right? Not in every condition. The engineers at Trek and Bontrager examined a wide range of rim profiles and rim cross sections to develop a wheelset that resisted gusting crosswinds as well as producing very low drag. Since the tire is always part of the aerodynamic equation, Trek's engineers looked at it as a useful element. The result is a more bullet-nosed rim profile they call Dual Directional Design (or D3) that uses the tire as part of the wheelset's aerodynamic profile. Crosswinds are always a concern, especially for lighter riders and triathletes trying to maintain an aero prosition without tensing up. The D3 profile is effective at reducing instability, even with the Aeolus Pro 5's 50mm deep rim.

All this aerodynamic development does no good at all if the wheels weigh too much. That's where the materials team at Trek went to work with their own carbon fiber "recipe": OCLV carbon fiber. OCLV (Optimum Compaction Low Void) is the name given to Trek's proprietary carbon fiber and how it is constructed for light weight and impressive strength. Straight-pull bladed stainless steel spokes are laced to the Aeolus Pro 5's alloy hubs, giving the wheels extra aerodynamic sleekness. The Aeolus Pro 5's are robust as well as lightweight, bringing confidence to every mile covered with them. Total wheelset weight before tires, tubes and cassette: 1605 grams

Low rolling resistance is the new method of adding speed, and the recent crop of tubeless tires does away with inner tubes. This eliminates another element of rolling resistance, helping the rider to maintain a given speed. The Aeolus Pro 5's are tubeless-ready, and come with tubeless rim strips and gasketed valve stems. We have a wide selection of tubeless-ready tires here at Machinery Row Bicycles if you want to make the leap.  Black Prince carbon fiber-specific brake pads are also included.
