Nov 14, 2015 – When you head into the mountains on your next cycling trip, you’ll wish for a light and stiff wheel set. When you hit the cobbles you’ll wish you had a bombproof set; after 80 miles you’ll wish you had a tubeless set; and as you wave good-bye to them in the airport you’ll wish you didn’t spend a fortune.
Welcome to the Bontrager Race X Lite TLR, a tubeless all-round alloy wheelset suited for any rider that rides anywhere, in any condition.
The wheel is light enough for climbing at 1,450grams, is super lively and profoundly durable, with tubeless convenience and a price you can live with after dropping a few thousand on the trip of a lifetime.
