Bontrager has a new set of wheels out today, and Line Comp 30 TLR wheels fit in the brand’s lineup as an affordable set of alloy hoops. The Line Comp 30 TLR wheels have an improved rim design with a 29mm internal width, upgraded Rapid Drive J-Bend hubs, and a more durable alloy construction.
The new wheels are made from GL-609 alloy, which they say the Trek Factory Racing DH team uses. “GL-609 delivers a best-in-class ride quality, exceptional durability, and lightweight performance that can make a significant and immediate upgrade to any trail ride.” Bontrager says the alloy stands up to hard hits. The rim profile is shallower, at a 20mm depth.
The wheels are available in 29″ and 27.5″ diameters and come exclusively in Boost 110/148mm spacing. They are 6-bolt compatible, tubeless-ready, and come stock with a SRAM XD driver freehub, though they sell Shimano MicroSpline and Shimano HG freehubs separately. The Rapid Drive 108 has…you guessed it, 108 points of engagement. That comes down to a pretty sharp 3.3° of engagement.
The 27.5″ set weighs a claimed 1,790g and the 29er weighs a claimed 1,955g per set. Those aren’t terrible weights either for a wheelset this affordable.
MSRP is $350, and the front and rear wheels can be purchased separately. See more information on the Trek website.
