Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program

Warrantied for life

A great set of carbon wheels can give your ride an instant upgrade in performance and handling. We understand they're an investment, and that's why we back every carbon Bontrager wheelset with a lifetime warranty to the original owner.

When you buy Bontrager carbon wheels, you're buying confidence in craftsmanship that lasts a lifetime.

Additionally, every set of Bontrager carbon wheels is backed by the Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program, which provides free repair or replacement in the unlikely event you damage your wheels within the first two years of ownership (and deeply discounted rebuild or replacement to the original owner regardless of the date of purchase).*

This program applies to all Bontrager carbon wheels that come stock on bikes as well as aftermarket wheel purchases and comes at no additional cost to the original owner.

Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program

If you damage a Bontrager carbon wheel while riding within the first two years of ownership, we will replace or repair it for free*. It’s that simple. This coverage applies to Bontrager carbon wheels that come stock on bikes as well as aftermarket wheel purchases.

Program details

The Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing Trek and Bontrager have your back. We appreciate that carbon wheels are a serious investment, and this program was designed to help you feel fully confident in your purchase.

All Bontrager carbon wheels are protected with a lifetime warranty to the original owner against defects.

After two years
We provide continued coverage beyond the first two years from the original date of purchase, with steeply discounted rebuild or replacement of a damaged Bontrager carbon wheel. Costs are wheel-dependent and shown in the table below.

Carbon Care offers two options, and the approach is determined by the wheel and the severity of the damage.

• The repair of a damaged wheel (including spokes, decals, nipples, and washers where needed) and factory rebuild on the original hubs

• A complete wheel replacement

* Repair and replacement through the Carbon Care Wheel Program must be administered by an authorized Trek retailer. Prices are subject to change without notice. Repair price and free replacement does not include shipping to and from the Bontrager Wheel Service Center. Contact your Trek retailer for details including a list of wheels covered by the program, current availability, pricing, and shipping quotes.
