Bontrager's Aura 5 TLR wheels are what you might call workhorse race wheels. They combine the low weight and proven aerodynamics of carbon with the controlled, confident braking power of aluminum to give you an advantage whether you're logging hard miles or picking off competitors. The 50mm-deep carbon fairings mate seamlessly with aluminum rims to make a wheelset stiff and tough enough to train on all year long, while staying light and aero enough for racing. These wheels are tubeless-ready, too, so you can choose between tube and tubeless tire setups as needed. The stacked spoke flanges on Bontrager's silky hubs boost durability, but not weight, so the Auras stay as round and true as they are fast.
