are Pro-Lite Braccianos on the UCI approved list?

Postby dobby » Fri Apr 22, 2011 5:24 pm

I have a set of these wheels - and cannot find them on the UCI approved list - they are a 27mm section alloy wheel so they are outside the 24mm spec - can anyone confirm they are UCI approved?

I would assume that if they are not on the list then they are not approved unless the UCI does not update the list regularly.

Edit: The latest list (Dated April 18, 2011) is here and only two Prolite models are listed, the Gavia and the Vicenza.

CA has an ammendment on the UCI wheel regulations, under the CA ammendedment they are approved and do not need to appear on the UCI list as they are a "standard" wheel.

Sorry for the slow response - have been away for Easter.

The Pro-Lite Braccianos would be "race legal" in Australia (probably not if you raced internationally unless other countries had similar definitions of a "standard wheel")

A 'Standard' wheel may also be defined as a wheel manufactured entirely of metal and having 16 or more spokes.

WHEEL REGULATIONS

Cycling Australia wishes to advise all competitors in the U19, U23, Elite and all Masters divisions, that from 1 September 2009 only wheels that conform to the CA Technical Regulation Annexure 6, UCI Bike Regulations 1.3.018 will be permitted to be used in mass start road racing.

The following amendments were approved by the recent CA Board with immediate effect:

A Standard/ traditional wheel is deemed to be a wheel with at least16 metal spokes; the spokes may be round, flat or oval, provided that no dimension of their cross sections exceeds 2.4 mm; the section of the rim must not exceed 2.5 cm on each side.

A 'Standard' wheel may also be defined as a wheel manufactured entirely of metal and having 16 or more spokes.

It shall be the sole responsibility of all competitors to ensure the wheels used in any mass start road competition comply with Annexure 6 of Cycling Australia's Technical Regulations - UCI Bike Regulation 1.3.018. Should a competitor use a wheel which is in breach of this regulation and that wheel is found to have caused injury to any person or damage to property, the competitor using these wheels may be liable for all costs arising from the incident.
All other wheels are deemed to be non standard and therefore must comply with the wheels approved by the UCI as listed in "non standard wheels in conformity with regulation 1.3.018.

A full list of all currently approved wheels may be obtained from the UCI website [click here] to view.

From everything I can gather Australia is the only country in the world remotely interested in enforcing the wheel rules so if you are racing over-seas I wouldn't be worried...
