Light, Stiff, Durable

Float up the climbs with a lighter, faster wheel and that unbeatable Aeolus ride quality. Aeolus XXX 2 is a carbon road wheel with a 28 mm depth. It's lighter than anything in its class, and the wide profile delivers more tyre support and confidence for road, gravel or cross. It's easy to set up tubeless, and the Laser Control Track significantly enhances braking performance.

Features

Crosswinds? Not so much

On the open road, the wind comes from all different directions. That’s why we redefined a high-performance wheel to do more than cut through headwinds in a wind-tunnel. Aeolus XXX is optimised for stability in real-world conditions, even the strongest crosswinds.

Confident all-weather braking performance

The confidence to ride at your fastest requires absolute confidence in your ability to stop. The all-new Laser Control Track massively improves braking performance for stopping power directly comparable to alloy rims, even in wet conditions.

Ultra-light American-made carbon

From a flat sheet of carbon to an advanced aero wheel, all in Trek’s Global headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin, USA. OCLV XXX carbon combines premium materials and high-temperature resins with industry-leading domestic manufacturing.

All-new wider shape

Aeolus XXX benefits from a wider 21 mm internal rim and all-new shapes optimised for each depth and intended use. The result is classic Aeolus ride quality with best-in-class aerodynamics and stability at all three rim depths.

Superior aerodynamics

Unlike many of its competitors, Aeolus XXX is optimised for aerodynamic performance in wind conditions of all types. We designed and tested over 10,000 shapes to ultimately land on three depths that lead the industry for speed, stability and weight.

Confidence in carbon

Every set of Bontrager carbon wheels is backed by the Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Programme. In the unlikely event that you damage your Bontrager carbon wheels within the first two years of ownership, we’ll repair or replace them for free.
