The Fulcrum Racing 7 wheels are as durable as they are inexpensive. I have abused mine for two winter seasons of training and they are still going strong. The bearings are not the greatest, but the press-in style makes replacement quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive. The replacement bearings have also lasted much longer. The wheels are reasonably stiff, the braking is consistent and good, and the price is hard to beat. The wheels are quite heavy and as mentioned before the bearings that come with the wheels are not exceptionally durable.
Overall, it's hard to find a better deal for a pre-built wheelset. Given the weight they do not make for the best racing wheels - despite the name. However, for daily training and riding these are a great value.
Ok, but should have upgraded3
These wheels came standard on my road bike.
Wheels looks very nice and performs probably just like a lot of entry level wheelsets. However, the price is only a little lower (at least on pbk) than the Fulcrum 5 which I have found to be a much better wheelset. So I wish I had upgraded the wheels when I first ordered my bike.
Used the Racing 7 for about a season until I bought pretty much brand new pair of Racing 5 secondhand.
I suspect a lighter rider than myself would have a better experience of the racing 7!
