Competitive gravel cycling -or just riding faster on terrible roads and surfaces- has spawned a huge array of tires to help take on rough terrain. The only problem was the rims they went on: They're all pretty heavy and clumsy on a relaxed-geometry gravel bicycle.

The team at Trek decided to make a better, lighter wheelset that could be found at a competitive price. The result is the new Bontrager Aeolus 3V TLR Disc wheelset. The team started with Trek's own proprietary OCLV carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is a natural choice for rim material for incredibly light weight and durability, but is even better when used on a disc-specific wheel due to a lack of rim brake surfaces. By producing a rim with a 25mm interior, wider gravel tires fit better and can put a more effective contact patch on the riding surface. The result is better control and ride quality on broken pavement, gravel, cobblestones and hardpack with newer performance gravel tires. Tubeless tires are no problem, thanks to Bontrager's easily-installed rim strips, gasketed valve stems and ammonia-free sealant (sealant sold separately). Tires from 32mm to 60mm can be mounted on the Aeolus Pro 3V TLR Disc wheelset.

Bontrager's innovation doesn't stop with the rim material. The rim profile itself is a proven aerodynamic shape originally seen on Bontrager's Aeolus Dual Directional Design (or D3) carbon fiber road wheels. This shape allows the wheelset to shrug off gusty crosswinds, improving stability as well as keeping overall drag low. Bladed double-butted stainless steel spokes add an extra dash of aero performance. The hubs are installed with 12mm thru-axles that eliminate flex at the dropouts, bringing an extra dash of handling precision in high-speed turns and descents. Disc brake rotors are installed with a Centerlock tool, simplifying maintenace. The rear freehub boasts 108 points of engagement, improving power delivery response and nearly eliminating "free play" at the cassette. Cool, huh?

All this adds up to an impressive performance wheelset for any compatible bicycle, but is especially well-suited for gravel adventures.

A pair of tubeless rim strips and gasketed valve stems are included with the purchase of this wheelset
