Sorry guys if this topic was already started (I couldn't find it, I searched)

There are lots of Pro-Lite wheel going around,
but I could never get a godo feedback?

what are your experiences?

Have you ever ridden those?
what are the problems?

(I will not mention my issues at this point, just to get the conversation going, maybe it is just mine, or maybe it's me, whatever)

I had a pair of these wheels. The rear was a Vicenza (90mm) and the front was a Gavia (50mm). To be honest, they were very solid wheels. I got them as a cheaper race set when I didn't want to use my Lightweights. They're not the lightest wheels in the world but they were well built and felt very strong. I used them on bad roads and I hit some massive pot-holes and things. I was often surprised they never damaged. Hubs and bearings also lasted well.

I sold my set to a friend and he has had no problems with them.

Basically. Bit on the heavy side but strong and smooth.

A couple team mates have had these a few years and Ive ridden them on a few occasions. They are definitely a solid well made wheelset, but heavy and possibly not very aero. They have been raced in road, cross, gravel, you name it. The hub design is different, with wide cross section, so assuming you want them for aero benifts, there might be better options.
