The XXX2 are the lightweight climbers of Bontrager's Aeolus
range, with a 28mm rim depth. Aero matters, even uphill, so the rim
profile has been shaped with as much care as the rest of the range,
and they're plenty strong enough for gravel/cross use despite their
Laser etched braking surfaces provide excellent stopping power,
and while they had the lasers out Bontrager have etched the
graphics too - harder wearing than decals, saving a tiny bit of
weight, and of course very smart looking.
The quality isn't just skin deep though - the rim profile has
been thoroughly redesigned to provide increased aerodynamic
benefits no matter what the angle of attack. And DT Swiss 240 hub
internals keep things rolling super-smooth.
Handmade in the USA, these are premium wheels at a very
competitive price, backed up by Trek's huge R&D expertise.
Black Prince brake pads are included, along with internal cam
quick releases. The wheels come supplied with TLR rim strips - so
they're ready to use with either tubed or tubeless tyres.
The XXX2 come as stock with a Shimano-fit freehub, but since the
innards are DT Swiss we can easily swap them for Campagnolo if
required - ask us for more details.
