Reviews Pro Lite Como

Pro Lite Como

The Pro Lite range goes right up to the highest carbon disc strata, but even this basic wheel has some likeable features. For a start, Pro Lite is very proud that all its wheels are fully handbuilt.

Spoke tension throughout is impressively even and brass nipples make truing them yourself easier. Loose ball bearings also mean you can prolong life by getting in there regularly with a dollop of grease and a spanner.

We’ve used several sets of Pro Lite wheels on various test bikes and they’ve all felt smooth whatever mileage or weather we’ve inflicted on them.

The 2.2kg weight takes some working up to speed, though, and the alloy 30mm rims are far from forgiving, with a lot of hand buzz on rougher roads. But they’re less likely to bend if you wallop a pothole, which back-road or XC riders will appreciate.
