They're Bontrager Race X Lite Aeros. I had meant to try the normal, non-aero versions, but the bike shop set me up with some demo wheels, and this is what was in the box! I think they look pretty cool, and they ride amazingly well.
Very light and very responsive. The only possible drawback would be the bladed spokes, which may react badly to cross-drafts. The non-aero versions have regular spokes (and are quite a bit lighter), so that's probably what I'll go with, but damn, I really like the looks of these.
It's going to be a tough choice!
