Strengths:    Machined with Precision
Top Quality Aluminum

Weaknesses:    Bontrager should Machine ETCH the word "Bontrager Rhythm Elite" into the aluminum at the top of the post where they will not be scratched or covered even when dropped for DH riding. Get rid of the paint graphics that wear off and look bad as they get worn.

Bottom Line:   
Best value premium aluminum products on the market.
Bontrager products have been preminum in the Road Bike scene for years.
With the Rhythm Elite/Pro series they now have truly premium aluminum MTB parts.
FINALLY...thank you Keith Bontrager!
Despite having tons of Thomson products in my parts bin I have NOT replaced the Rhythm Elite/Pro products on my Remedy, Scratch or Session...that is about as high a praise a you can get.

Side Note for the folks at Bontrager: What is the differentiation between the Rhythm Elite & Pro lines? Answer: After a review of the Bontrager website, looks like they replaced the word "Elite" with "Pro", probably for the 2011 line (possibly because "elite" has been used for so long by Thomson. Regardless, if it says "Rhytm Elite/Pro" its great stuff!

Gets the job done. Came on my Fuel EX. I've considered swapping it out, but I just can't fault it. It stays put, no slipping. I like the subtile graphics. It is a good quality product.

2014 Rhythm Elite TLR 29er Wheelset

Has anyone had any issues with this wheel set ? I have a 2010 Rumblefish that I received when I broke my 2008 HiFi Deluxe, I am finally upgrading the fork to a 120mm Fox Float from the old 100mm 29RL that came on the HiFi. Now I need a 15mm thru front wheel and might as well update the wheel set.Read More »
