Pro-Lite Bracciano Review

Pro-Lite have been hand building wheelsets for many years and are the largest producer of hand made wheels in the world and continue to manufacture some of the best cycling wheelsets used by professionals the world over. Pro-Lite’s advanced designs and use of sophisticated materials can be seen in the Pro-Lite Bracciano wheelset, which comes in polished silver, with 27mm welded alloy rims, which are extremely smooth reducing the rolling resistance allowing the wheels to reach staggering speeds and grip to the road making them confident at cornering. While the 20/24h aero spokes create a taut wheel, which further aids the wheels ability to spin fast, whilst also improving the aerodynamics of the wheels ensuring they are unaffected by strong crosswinds.

The Pro-Lite Bracciano features cartridge bearing hubs, a unique feature only found on Pro-Lite wheelsets, that lowers the rolling resistance and ensures while the 5 bearings within the hub guarantee a lifetime of outstanding performance. The wheels weigh 610g at the front and 845g at the rear, making the wheelsets extremely light. The Pro-Lite Bracciano has a 5 star rating with very few weaknesses; again, they have recently been awarded the Best Buy by Cycling Plus magazine.

Designed to be used for intensive training sessions as well as competitive speed racing, the Pro-Lite Bracciano are the perfect combination of strength and lightness available on the market. Due to the lightness and stiffness of these wheels they climb brilliantly, and when tested during intensive rides they did not show any perceptible flex. These light weight wheels are hard wearing which offers this professional quality. After riding a couple of miles it will be easy to see the upsides of these wheels, research has shown that they improve a cyclists overall performance.
