Pro-Lite (PROfessional LITEweight) produces an extensive range of frames, wheels and components, using the very latest technology and materials, with road, track and time-trial disciplines catered for. At the end of 2007 it was announced that Polaris would become the exclusive UK distributor.

The company is notable for a distinctive black and white colour scheme that features on its entire product range. Products range from the full-carbon Galileo frame which weighs just 1.05kg to the Espresso time-trial frameset with aero-shaped tubing. A wide range of wheels includes the Gavia, which features a 50mm deep-section carbon (clincher or tubular) rim and the more affordably priced Como clincher.

There’s also a full complement of saddles, stems, headsets, handlebars, forks and accessories with which to tackle a complete build.

It’s worth looking around the website for an idea of what products they produce. There is a new range of bikes for the 2009 season, which will be available later in the year .

You'll be able to see Swift Racing using Pro-Lite parts this season.
