Cutting edge high pressure forming techniques were developed specifically for this wheel (and subsequently adopted for the rest of our in-house carbon manufacturing line), yielding extremely hard, extremely rigid carbon fibre which maximizes power output without compromising weight.
Virtually maintenance free and featuring exceptionally low rolling resistance, using the same EZO bearings we use in the Bolzano hub, the wheel has a very low rolling resistance compared to standard sealed bearing wheels and 2 bearings will ensure a lifetime of outstanding performances.
The key to the effectiveness of the Rome lies in the Leading Edge Deflection Technology (LEDT). With LEDT, the entire shape of each span is considered, not just the basic aerofoil shape, but also the curvature of the planform at the top of the wheel, where airspeed is highest.
Here's the technical low-down on the Rome's aerodynamics.
Pro-Lite’s flagship 5-spoke wheel uses a rounded leading edge design appropriate for typical bicycle racing speeds, with a gentle, flat taper towards the trailing edge. The spokes have a subtle parabolic curve and forward sweep along the planform to improve aerodynamics on rotation where airspeed is greater as it moves away from the center. This provides no benefit if the bike is sitting on a stand in a wind tunnel when the wheels are not rotating, but that’s not how most people ride their bikes. The rim has also been designed with a similar shape, using the tire as the leading edge against forward movement.
