Aeolus carbon road wheels – Trek Bikes

Named for the god of wind.
Engineered to outsmart him.

Aeolus, god of wind, is both friend and foe. He doles out tailwinds, headwinds, and crosswinds in equal measure. His power is the inspiration behind every pair of Aeolus wheels, and the reason why we’ve spent over 25 years engineering ways to outsmart him.

Using our industry leading OCLV Carbon layup process and state-of-the-art aerodynamics modeling, we developed a complete lineup of wheels with proven, stable designs that deliver free speed at ultra-low weights. Multiple levels of performance and pricing ensure there’s lots of options for dedicated racers, avid riders, and weekend warriors.

Raced by Lidl-Trek

We work closely with the pros of Lidl-Trek to develop gear that helps them ride faster and more confidently on race day. And it’s not just the pros who benefit from this relationship. Athlete input makes products like Aeolus RSL wheels–our lightest, fastest, and most stable wheels ever–better for every rider.

Your guide to the Aeolus lineup

Aeolus offers a complete lineup of carbon wheels in multiple depths to suit any budget. There’s an Aeolus wheelset for you no matter the level of performance you need or the type of riding you do.

Aeolus RSL

We built the all-new Aeolus RSL wheels in pursuit of ultimate speed for every rider. They're the fastest wheels we've ever made, and they're available in a wide-range of depths from 37mm to 75mm to help you be the fastest you, wherever you're chasing speed.

Aeolus V

Stronger, smoother, and faster — Aeolus V wheels are constructed to account for wider volume tires (hence the “V” in their name). They’re made to support larger road and gravel tires for more traction and stability, even at lower pressures.

Aeolus Pro

Pro models combine our high-end tech with a high-value build. Look for the light and fast 37mm depth or the even speedier 50mm depth. They’re also available in a higher volume version that’s great for larger gravel tires.

Aeolus Elite

These fast, light, and budget-friendly wheels make the upgrade to carbon easier than ever. Available in 35mm or 50mm depth.
