Named after the Greek God of the Winds, Bontrager's Aeolus 5.0 ACC Wheels were designed by the gurus at Hed Cycling. Made from aluminum and carbon, the ACCs are stiff and tough enough to train on all year long, yet light enough for racing and putting your normal riding buddies deep in the pain cave. They feature a 50mm-deep rim with a Grand Tour-proven shape for perfectly optimized aerodynamics. The balanced spoke pattern and locking nipples makes your wheel durable, too. So they'll stay true for season after season of hard riding.
These wheels accept clincher tires (sold separately). Bontrager recommends using 700 x 22c clincher tires to maximize aerodynamics.
For easy repairs, these wheels accept standard replacement spokes.
The Swiss-made hubs are smooth, light and durable.

These wheels rock! I was tentative about getting a full carbon wheelset due to concerns over braking. The Aeolus 5.0 ACC offers a great aero profile with an aluminum braking surface. On the first ride out, had the fastest sprint on level ground into the wind. Great balance between light weight, aero profile, and braking surface. With the Aeolus 5.0 ACC, I don't have to worry about changing out my brake pads every time I change my wheels.
