A closer look at: Bontrager

23rd September 2016 in General by Daniel Kogan

Bontrager are experts when it comes to producing wheels, accessories, components and helmets. We take a look at some of the latest, most exciting products in the American company's range.

Bontrager Ballista MIPS CE Helmet

The helmet of choice for professional teams such as Trek Segafredo, the Bontrager Ballista CE Helmet now incorporates MIPS technology. Now used by many helmet manufacturers, MIPS reduces the rotational forces placed on the brain in the case of certain impacts.


Race winning, the Ballista is an aerodynamic road helmet that features a distinct central channel vent that draws in air for increased cooling and all-day comfort. The Headmaster II is a one-handed fit system that offers a premier look and feel, ensuring fit is never compromised.


Further enhancing comfort, the AgION fit pads and NoSweat technology ensure moisture is wicked away quickly and your head remains cool, whatever the weather.



Bontrager XXX Road Shoe

The top of the line shoe in the American company's range, the XXX Road Shoe has been designed with comfort and performance in mind. A Platinum Carbon sole adds stiffness while the premium Clarino microfibre upper adds to the shoe's lightweight credentials. The inForm Pro ergonomic design adds to high-performance fit.


Two Boa IP1 dials have been added to allow for a precise fit and to lessen the chances of pressure points developing.


Bontrager Aeolus Wheels

Bontrager are market leaders when it comes to wheels and the Aeolus is a fine addition to their race ready range. The Aeolus has been optimised in the windtunnel and a drag-reducing D3 Dual Directional Design rim profile is the result. This is a super light, strong and stiff OCLV construction that is more than capable of delivering a fast yet stable ride.


Rim depths vary, with everything from shallow to super deep offerings, catering for everyone from climbers to time trialists. 


TLR is a pioneering technology that allows you to use these wheels with clincher and tubeless tyres. Finished off with DT Swiss hubs, these are fast spinning hoops, ready for the road.

Bontrager Ion 100 R/Flare R City Light Set

The Bontrager Ion 100 R/Flare R City Light Set is designed for the savvy commuter who wants to nip around town, highly visible, day or night.


With a 15 hour battery life, charging the light set need not be a constant chore. When you do run out of juice, the light set's included USB cable ensures you're never left out in the dark.


With a beam range of 400 metres, with a 100 lumen front and 35 lumen rear, this light set may not be the brightest on the market, but its compact size and easy mounting options make it a firm favourite for city riders.
