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.

The Aeolus 5.0 ACC provides the best of everything - light weight carbon, aero profile, and an aluminum braking surface. Using the Aeolus 5.0 ACC eliminates the need to change brake pads every time I change my wheels. It is one of the fastest wheels out there; on my first ride with the group, had the fastest sprint ever - into the wind! Also, getting the Campy hub was no problem; and I know Bontrager will stand behind this wheel!
