Keith Bontrager famously said: “Light, strong, cheap: pick two.” Well, these carbon wheels – sporting a 35mm cross-section and a wide, 19.5mm rim bed laced to fast-engaging, Centerlockcompatible Bontrager hubs – challenge that maxim. They’re light, but super-durable: I bashed them around at low tyre pressures for a full cyclocross season (with no damage despite numerous hard hits) before going right back to road training. And they’re one of the best bargains on the market for carbon wheels. Maybe you can have it all. – Mike Yozell
