The Pro-Lite PBS Galileo frames are 100 carbon fibre construction. This means that there are no alloy lugs used in the construction and then hidden. Many brands claim their frame is monocoque. In fact they are alloy lugged frames with the joints inside the tubes with material wrapped over the joint to hide it. The beauty of the Galileo frame is that it employs all the strength features of a lugged frame, without the weakness problems of a one piece monocoque frame. We join the frame using our own precision made carbon lugs and tubing. Features: Colours - Gloss Black and White or Matt Black Available sizes are 50, 52, 54, 56 and 58cm Weight - 1210g (50cm), 1235 g (52cm), 1300g (54cm), 1310g (56cm)1340g (58cm). Full Carbon with polish CNC Pro-Lite dropout. Hand crafted and 100 hand made. CNC Integrated Head tube design. Used by many pro riders and race teams across the world. CNC stainless steel replaceable derailleur hanger.
