Ada USED to be Lightweight. And lightweight is actually a company called Heylight. It is actually a gentleman in Germany by the name of Prof. Heydenreich. Ada is owned by a man named Cees Beers. He used to work for Heylight and took the ideas back to his native Denmark and is producing a wheelset "similar" to them. The Heylight/Lightweightr wheelset is the one that was used by Lance, Jan, Axel, Bjarne and others in the TDF. I know, Because I own a pair and have talked to Prof. H about them. They differ from the ADA in they used carbon/kevlar spokes that are flat instead of round kevlar "socks" with a titanium inner core. I have seen the ADA, they are a tad heavier then the Heylight/lightweight. Any other questions, let me know., yes I do have photos of them to prove I own them.

mr.beers is a dutchman and producing his wheels in his native netherlands.

the lightweight wheels passed the new uci rules.
