I own a Madone 5.2 so investing the money for carbon aero wheels just did not make sense. I ride in the neighborhood of 3,000+ miles per year and like most serious riders, appreciate a bike that responds when I decide to put the hammer down. I decided to go buy the RXL's because they were light weight, tubeless ready and...well...Bontrager! These wheels did not disappoint. I felt the weight savings and responsiveness right away. When you stand on it, the bike jumps and goes. They are not true aero wheels but the bladed spokes are a nice balance. It was the best upgrade for the money I could have made. The rims are slightly wider to give more rubber contact and tubeless is definitely the way to go. I used to build my own wheels and remember having to true them a few times after the first riding them until they were broken in. The RXL's are as true as the day they came out of the box. Solid braking surface. Cannot say a bad word about these wheels. They are a great buy!
