Pro-Lite GARDA DS Road Bike Wheelset

Previously only available to select markets, the Garda is now available to the public. The Garda is a robust, smooth-rolling wheel that can provide the longevity of a training wheel with the heart of a racing wheel. A simple and classic setup of a low profile pinned rim laced to a cartridge bearing hub with a sexy new duplex spoke pattern lays the foundation of a great wheel that just keeps on going, mile after mile and year after year. 

Road CC Review

"Pro-Lite hand-builds all of its wheelsets, even down to training wheels like these Gardas. They're a very well made pair of wheels that should keep you rolling for a long time."

 



HUBS

 

GARDA HUBS

The Garda uses two types of bearings in the rear hub. Two cartridge bearings complement two high quality Cup and Cone bearings. Replaceable ball bearings offer incredible longevity and impressive smoothness, while the cartridge bearings offer easy replacement. Together, the four bearings provide a stable feel and improve power transfer, especially for sprinting and climbing. The freebody also has a grease port for easy maintenance.

GARDA REVIEWS

Here's what the critics have to say about our Pro-Lite Garda DS Wheel Set.

Road CC 

"Pro-Lite hand-builds all of its wheelsets, even down to training wheels like these Gardas. They're a very well made pair of wheels that should keep you rolling for a long time."

"The Pro-Lite Garda DS alloy clincher wheelset is a great pair of wheels for a commuter bike or your training bike. They have excellent build quality and they ride really well."

"They acquitted themselves very well both on the flats and the climbs. Braking felt quick and consistent, meaning the rim surface was good. They reacted well in both wet and dry conditions."

"In terms of value they stack up very well. They're comparable in terms of weight to other wheels at the same price, and the performance is excellent. If you're looking for a more performance-orientated wheelset. But if your budget is limited and you want quality and performance, these are a really great option."

"Verdict. If weight isn't your primary concern, these wheels offer great performance with excellent durability and strength."


Icebike

"Pro Lite Garda is an affordable and durable wheelset that will do your bike really well. These wheels have excellent braking power and are comfortable to ride. This is a decent performer well worth the price."
