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

LIGHT, STRONG AND CHEAP(ISH). IT’S POS­SI­BLE TO COME CLOSE TO HAV­ING ALL THREE.
