I'm stuck trying to decide between which wheelset to buy and hoping someone who has ridden both can assist me with pros/cons of each one. The one pro I've came across is that the Bontragers are about 100 grams lighter than the Zipps.

Thanks!

If you want light, both the Roval CLX 32s and ENVE SES 3.4s are lighter than either. I like my 202 NSWs...they are quite stiff for 32mm deep wheels and they weigh exactly as listed on Zipp’s website with preinstalled tubeless tape and valves.

You may not have a ch a choice to make. The Bonty wheels are being replaced with a newer/different version in July. As such, Trek are not replacing stock and dealers will struggle to get hold of them.

Would love a pair of ENVE or Zipp NSWs but they're a bit out of my budget. I found a set of 202s and Aeolus locally for sale within budget.
