    Hi
    Can anyone tell me anything about these wheels? I'm thinking of buying some. Are they strong? Will they last? I'm reasonably light, around 70kg. Are they faster than/as fast as the Ksyrium Elites?

    Holy jumpin' jesuschrist - those wheels are so freakin fast you better glue your socks on.
    They accelerate like jet launcher on an aircraft carrier.
    They climb like a goat on crack.
    They roll so smooth it's like you're riding on glass.
    They eat pot holes like donut holes and they'll last a lifetime.
    Other riders will take one look at your wheels and capitulate in ignominy.
    Good god, you must buy a pair immediately.

    I also heard that if you have 'em on your bike you're a shoo-in to get Claudia Schiffer into the sack! :rolleyes:

    They are (favorably) reviewed against Zipp 303's, Neuvation R350's, and Topolino Revelation C19's on Bike.com

    Bontrager wheels are the most underrated wheels on the market. I have the Race Lites and I love them. When I initially purchased my Trek 5200..my plan was to upgrade my wheels to Mavic Ksyrium SL's. The stock wheels on my Trek were Race Lites. But anyway, as I started to put miles on my new bike...I realized how nice the Bontrager wheels were. They exceeded my highest expectations! So I never bought the Ksyriums because I like these Bonty wheels so much!!!

    From the research I've done they stood out as fantastic wheels. For those that live in North America they also have great distribution. Based on that, I just bought a pair.

    I'll have to wait until there's a bit less snow on the ground before I try 'em out.

    All right Claudia, here I am!

    Thank you for that analogy. The next time I am grinding up a hill I will visualize the aforementioned goat (maybe with Claudia) waiting at the summit. :cool:
