If you go tubeless however, the wheels really come into their own. A good choice for riders looking to potentially go tubeless in the future, at a reasonable price.
Bontrager is owned by Trek, but it stands out on its own by making some excellent wheels and finishing kit.
We had these on our Trek Madone 2.3 test bike in the June issue, and tested here on a higher performance machine, they were still good fun.
Like the Strada also on test, they're ‘tubeless ready', meaning they can be used without inner tubes with the right tyres.
They're a wider than average rim too, and offer extra grip and stable handling when running with an inner tube compared to other wheels here.
