Bontrager Race X Lite Wheelset

Bontrager Race X Lite1 Bontrager Race X Lite Wheelset You might find Bontrager Race X Lites stock on a new Trek bike. As usual, Bontrager offers a very value oriented product with a solid design similar to the flagship Race XXX Lite Carbon wheels. Using DT Aerolite bladed spokes on Bontrager hubs, these wheels look good. The paired spoke patter is distinctive. The wheels are lightened by only using 18 spokes up front and 20 spokes for the rear, which brings the wheel set in at a reported 1490g. Plus these wheels come with titanium skewers.

The triple sealed, cartridge bearing rear hub of the Race X Lite has an over-sized hub shell to transfer torque. The wheelset design also incorporates an offset rim to distribute forces evenly to make the wheel more rigid. The hubs and rims are machined to remove excess material to further reduce the weight while maintaining stiffness.

Overall, the wheelset has a very comfortable ride with reasonable stiffness second only to the Mavic Ksyrium or Shimano Dura-Ace and unmatched in its price range. The Bontrager Race X Lite wheelset would make a great cyclocross wheelset or an good everyday wheelset. Bontrager’s value, customer service, and the wheelset’s great looks make it easy to see why you see these wheels stock on so many bikes.
