Product CodeBracciano


New 2014 stock is here now!  All Shimano compatible Bracciano stock purchased from today 09/05/2013 is now Shimano 11sp compatible.  We include a spacer for those riders using 8/9/10 speed, great news is you can buy your Bracciano now and transfer them onto a future bike.  The good news for riders with older stock is that you just need to swap the freehub to change to 11sp in the future, we have the parts for this on hand.


We've secured a stock of Shimano Ultegra 10sp 6700 cassettes, these are compatible with any 10sp Shimano groupset (105, Dura-Ace and Ultegra).  With a small RD adjustment can also be used on a 10sp SRAM bike.  If  you'd like one of these, ask us about it when we call to confirm your web order or place a comment at the check-out as to which ratio you'd like.  We generally have stock of 11-28 and 12-25.  They are $75 and we will gladly install it for you if required at no extra cost (the right way, with a torque wrench).  Please note we don't include the cassette in your total for free freight, its simply a value-add service for those people who don't have easy access to a cassette or the tools to install it.  If you'd like to send us your existing cassette, as long as its clean we'll gladly install it for you and send your wheels out ready to ride for no extra cost.

The Pro-Lite Bracciano has won the road wheel shoot out in UK Cycling Plus magazine.  Despite being one of the cheapest wheels on test they won out against the competition.

Bracciano uses the same hub as our popular Stelvio model, but with a more shallow rim and lighter spokes.  The end result is a wheel durable enough to train on and light enough to win with.

Similar to Fulcrum Racing Zero, Roval Echappee, Zipp Team Issue & Campagnolo Eurus.

  • Super light Alloy 6066 material, Flash Welding.
  • 27 mm profile for superior aerodynamic performance.
  • 2 in front hub, 5 in rear hub angular contact bearing (Japanese EZO)
  • Available for Campagnolo or Shimano freehub bodies
  • 20 Spoke Front, 24 Spoke Rear.
  • PRO-LITE double butted stainless aero spoke.
  • Alloy T73 nipple.
  • 100% built by hand.
  • Non-Drive Side Spoke Braces now included standard for no extra cost, these were a special order for Australia.  Most other markets don't have these braces yet!

All Pro-Lite wheels are hand built from our cheapest training wheel to our most expensive Carbon models. Please view the below video to watch how our wheels are built.


Weight: Front 618 g / Rear 864 g

Please consider including the optional Pro-Lite Brake Pads.  Although this wheelset is compatible with ANY brake pad, the Pro-Lite pads will offer you maximum braking performance in all weather conditions combined with minimal wear on the braking surface of your rims.  Since pads are a lot cheaper than rims, we think they are a great investment!  If you select this option you will be sent a full set of pads for the front and rear of your bike.  If you need extras they can be purchased in our "Wheel Accessories" section.

All Good!!

Had these on my bike for nearly 6 months and approx 2000kms they are still running beautifully. Did plenty of research beforehand and ended up buying these wheels on the back of the reviews here and a strong recommendation from a guy who is a prolific climber. Nothing but praise for these wheels. (May 02 2014, 20:49 pm)

From Russia with love

As you requested , I do a little review. I understand that the answer was long, but right now I can objectively evaluate the wheels. Compare with Fulcrum Racing 3 as a direct competitor. Overall Impression: a great build , excellent bearings , low weight is felt directly in the hands, strong spokes. External characters I put your wheels on the level and slightly higher than the Fulcrum. My trainig on Campagnolo Khamsin. Competition - your wheels with Tufo tubeles clinchers. 15 bar give amazing results. I added to the results of races in comparison to the previous season . I think that Tufo+Bracciano = perfect combination. In addition to the tubes was filled sealant Tufo. All races were 15 bars. My weight 76 kg + 8-9 kg bike . For example, photos below : 1) This is our traditional road race . You can see that in some places the asphalt was in poor condition. First I was afraid of the wheels and tubes . But , the race went well and there is no "8" or dents on the wheels! 2) Road with lots of turns. It is clear that much depends on the properties of rubber , but the steep turns the wheels enough stiffness , rim walked. Bottom line: this is the best deal at this price . I am pleased with the purchase and can recommend them to others bikers . (Jan 18 2014, 20:08 pm)

Stiff, Light & Aero

I'm only relatively new to the market of wheelsets. I've looked at what's on offer from the other brands such as Fulcrum and Easton but Pro-Lite stood out. After reading countless reviews from other sites on riders who have had good experiences with Pro-Lite. I thought I would give it a go as the reviewers and forum posts I had read claimed that they had been in accidents and hit pot holes and the wheels have stayed true for years. I thought these wheels sounded perfect as the roads I ride often have potholes, though I never thought I would get in an accident. It turned out just two days after purchasing my wheels I went head over handlebars after hitting a pot hole, hidden by a speed hump. I thought my bike was a right off, it turned out just to be the rear derailleur though, but originally I did think my wheels were irreversibly damaged as well. But, boy was I wrong! They were straight and stiff and where still new. After repairing my bike I've since ridden close to 100km, put in a few sprints and ridden a few street circuits without any issues. I'm not that lighter rider either, I'm 86kg and my bike is 8.5kg. I ride Gatorskin Clinchers with 100PSI and I have no problem holding 35-42km/h(52km/h in sprints) on these wheels.

They roll incredibly!

Just thought I would update you on the wheels I bought off you about 2 years ago, still going fantastic with no problems at all, about to give them a little TLC as we have had a lot of wet weather here inTas. Once again a fantastic wheel set they roll incredibly wheel especially compared to some other expensive wheel sets on my other riding partners bikes. A very happy customer. (Aug 28 2013, 13:38 pm)

Fantastic wheelset

I upgraded to these wheels from a set of Reynolds Shadows. They are lighter, and the decals used match in well with any frame. They clean up great, and look the part too. Much better looking then a lot of the 'high end' wheels around. I'm no light weight (100+kg), and ride some pretty rough roads. My previous wheels needed to be trued about once a month, and that was with me being VERY careful about terrain and bumps. But with the Braccianos- not a drama!!! I've had them about 3mths, and even did a 800km ride across Far North Qld on them, a few days after getting them. Rode gravel, course bitumen, 20km of packed dirt track and even a rocky creek crossing that snuck up on me around a corner of the track. Cyclocross baby!!! I bunny hopped gaps and ripples in outback bridges, these wheels were well and truely THRASHED. And they still haven't needed to be trued.... My partner has his own set as well, and when he bunny hopped a gutter and misjudged the landing, he split his tyre, but his set of Braccianos were unphased.... not a micrometer out of true! My wheels were also borrowed by a QRTS rider for a mountainous stage, and he said they were some of the best wheels he's ridden. Want a quality set of wheels that will stand up to anything? Then these are your wheels!!! (Aug 19 2013, 15:36 pm)
