Strengths:    Lightest wheels available under 1500, (also from the family of lightest wheels on earth).

Weaknesses:    Delivery time, they are so back ordered that its a month or two wait.

Bottom Line:   
Buy if you want the absolute most aero, lightest wheels. Blow away any other manufacturer. Look different because you aren't a mavic or rolf groupie. Want a lightweight wheel that is as durable as a 32h 3x training wheel.

Help - 1997 Bontrager Race Lite crankset

Currently I am running some ZTR Flows on Chris King 36h hubs laced to straight 14 gauge spokes. I had the ... Read More »

Favorite Race-Lite (non race) tires?

I know I cant be alone thinking that 29er tires are particularly important, especially since tire weight is more dramatic on 29ers than a 26" wheel. For about a year now Ive been holding my breath for manufacturers to catch on to this more than they have for us XC/Trail guys and offer some more opti ... Read More »

Race X Lite Wheels flexy?

180lbs+ gear on carbon hard tail riding XC running tubes. I want as light as i can get within reason but dont want to sacrifice stiffness. Are these wheels going to be too flexy? (my pet peeve). FWIW I found Mavic wheels have been much more stiff than Race X Lites on my road bike. Do you th ... Read More »

Bontrager Race Lite Disc 29 (non-TLR)

Posted this originally in tires and wheels but I figured since Bonty is a Trek brand, I'd get more opinions in here: "OK, I got a wheelset from ebay to go tubeless on my 2011 Trek X-Caliber. The ad did say that it had one Bonty rimstrip and one Stans rimstrip. I didn't think anything of it until ... Read More »
