This Pro Lite Rome 5 Spoke Full Carbon Tubular Rear Wheel is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The Rome 5-Spoke carbon wheel is the ultimate in monocoque carbon wheel. Using the very latest 3D software and manufacturing techniques, we have ensured that the aerodynamics of this wheel cut through the air with minimum drag and maximum performance.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
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.
Additionally, the lateral rigidity is extremely high to let you have total control in tight corners and exceptional response during out-of-the-saddle sprints.
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 with 2 bearings in the track and 4 in the road wheels 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 centre. 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.
The Pro-Lite philosophy is to produce a range of high quality PROfessional LITEweight bicycle equipment using the very latest technology and materials available.
Pro-Lite have built an extensive range for road bikes, all designed to be the lightest and most durable products on the market today, and now it's available to everyone.
