Pro-Lite Gavia Wheelset

From 2008, Pro Lite has decided to expand our Gavia wheelset range. Each Gavia wheelset is equipped with our patented "Bolzano" hub.

The Pro-Lite Bolzano hub is designed to provide maximum power to output ratios, whilst offering superior wheel stability and structure. When coupled with the unique Pro-Lite spoke made from Swedish Stainless Steel, you have a combination that is everything the rider needs. During tests using several Pro riders, we used a power meter set at 300 watts of power over 50km and the results were amazing. The result was an average faster time over 50km of 89.2 seconds.

What were also consistent were the comments riders made after each test. The phrase “those wheels are really fast” was repeated many times. It became evident that lighter wheels flex far too much under maximum load by the rider, showing that weight saving does have its disadvantages. An overly light wheel can cause the rider to waste power. A Pro-Lite wheel allows the rider to actually go faster using the same amount of power.

In plain English, the power transfer on a Pro-Lite wheel is the key to keeping you ahead of the rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Looking Wheels.. But Pinarello riders beware!!! I have just purchased the 50mm full carbon clinchers with the Bolzano hub from another supplier. As yet I have not used them. The Wheels look fantastic!!! They feel sturdy. They are not the lightest wheels on the market, but they are very durable. However, if you ride a Pinarello with the standard Onda forks.... the hub on the front wheel is not campatible. The inside of the Onda fork drop out section will rub against the outside rim of the oversided Bolzano hub. Aparently the reason is the Onda forks are not quite designed to 100% industry standard measurements. If you ride any other bike, eg Cervelo, Giant, Bianchi, etc you should not have a problem. So just check your fork clearance before you buy. The rear wheel is no problem at all. I am keeping the wheels and having the front hub changed. 17 June 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent wheelset I purchased a pair of the 50mm Gavias and they're just an amazing wheelset. No flex, lightweight, and have been very durable. I ended up writing an unsolicited review of them on a blogsite for anyone who's interested: http://anotherdooratthe.endoftheinternet.org/2011/01/04/pro-lite-gavia-50mm-carbon-wheelset-5-minute-review/ 09 January 2011
