Bontrager release new trail and XC wheelsets

Decades ago, Keith Bontrager was the one of the first to bring lightweight wheel designs to the fledgling world of mountain bikes. Today, we continue his legacy of innovation, pushing modern technology to deliver products that ride better and last longer. In this spirit, Bontrager is unveiling new additions to the Line and Kovee lineup of mountain bike wheels that challenge Keith’s famous adage of “Strong, Light, Cheap—Pick Two.” The new Bontrager Line and Kovee wheels give trail and XC-oriented riders lightweight, durable upgrade options in both carbon fiber and alloy at accessible price points.

Each new wheel offering includes Rapid Drive hubs for instant engagement and effortless acceleration, while wider internal rim widths increase both traction and stability. Line Pro, Elite, and Comp wheelsets offer trail and enduro riders an easy aftermarket upgrade at a great price, while dedicated XC racers will find a natural fit with the lightweight OCLV Carbon Kovee Elite. All new wheels will be available in both 27.5˝and 29˝ sizes, and feature Bontrager’s TLR system to easily transition to a tubeless setup.

Line Pro, our highest-end trail/enduro wheel, delivers pro-level performance at a pro deal price. 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.
