Bontrager has been quietly improving their wheel line from the hub to the rim. This year though, they went big with carbon wheels at a mind-blowing price of $1200 a pair for the All Mountain wheels and $900 a pair for the XC wheels. We’ve reviewed their wheels recently and we’ve been impressed as you can see here, so this is exciting news indeed.
Line Pro 30 TLR MTB Wheels
Line Pro wheels feature a strong, durable OCLV Pro Carbon rim with a 29mm internal rim width. Like all Bontrager wheelsets, they have been impact tested for ultimate strength and durability. The lightweight rim is laced to a Rapid Drive 108 hub for instant engagement and an easily-serviceable hub design. With Line Pro, you get a durable carbon wheel that shifts expectations of what a wheel can offer at $1200 MSRP. The 27.5″ weighs 1539g and the 29″ weighs 1608g.
