The original Padova set the bar pretty high. The updated Padova takes things one step further, with improvements to the flange design that improve power transfer yet more, while lightening the overall mass and the convenience of a carbon clincher rim.

FEATURES PRO LITE'S 2 IN 1 HUB SYSTEM THAT MAKES IT EASY TO SWITCH FROM ROAD TO TRACK AND VICE VERSA, ALL PARTS ARE SUPPLIED.
Pro Lite's first objective was to ensure they had foam that is of the highest standards and they needed to ensure they obtain superior stiffness without adding weight. Pro Lite then brought in 3m and AGFA to have foam that is designed to reduce weight and increase strength. The combination of foam and microspheres allows them to do just that. The micropsheres basically provide incredible strength by linking the bubbles together and reduce density and weight
The Padova features a 2-in-1 hub which allows a 'hot swap' between a road type free body and a track type axle with a fixed gear in around a minute with simple tools.
Using the same EZO bearings Pro Lite use in the Bolzano hub, the wheel has a very low rolling resistance compared to standard sealed bearing wheels and 4 bearings will ensure a lifetime of outstanding performances.
