The ultimate in monocoque carbon wheels, the 5-spoke Rome produces incredible rigidity, perfect responsiveness and maximum aerodynamic performance. Made exclusively in Pro-Lite's own factories using cutting-edge thick-wall bladders and high vacuum forming machines, the carbon fibre is among the best in the industry, from the inner surface straight through to the outer.
The Rome 5-Spoke carbon wheel is the ultimate in monocoque carbon wheels. 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, both against rotational and forward air resistance. 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 platform to improve aerodynamics on rotation where airspeed is greater. The rim has also been designed with a similar shape, using the tyre as the leading edge against forward movement.
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 angular contact bearings, riders can simply fit it and ride.
