We've already mentioned the perils of budget wheels and in Pro-Lite's quest for light, it has sacrificed strong.

The hand-built wheels use a shallow 27mm 6066 aluminium rim and minimal spokes (20 front/24 rear) to weigh in at under 1,500g naked meaning they are indeed slim, if not quite skinny.

However, they have a fair amount of flex - not super-noodly, but less than ideal for big power or mass.
