Race Lite or X Lite Wheel Compatibility w/ Shimano 105 9s

Can anyone tell me if the Bontrager Race Lite or Race X Lite is compatible with my Shimano 105 9 speed rear deraillure? I have a Trek 2200 with Rolf Vectra (original) wheels and have been lusting for something lighter and smoother to ride and climb with. Looking at the Bontrager website they list the rear wheels as 9/10 speed. Would I need to upgrade my rear deraillure and cassette to use the new wheels?

Thanks In Advance.

Great wheels. No worries about compatability, they'll work with what you have.

Except for the ten speed Dura-Ace hubs. They will only accept ten speed cassettes.

Correct application of Dremel tool can fix that!

So I ended up buying a set of Bontrager Race Lites with the Bontrager Race X Lite tires already mounted from a member of my Bike club. They came on his new Trek Madone 5.2, he immediately upgraded to Mavic Ksyrium, don't remember which model, so the wheels he sold me only had 10 miles on them. My bike is at my LBS getting them mounted with a new chain and minor tune up. Looking forward to riding on them later this week. Thanks for the info.
