A Gift From the Cycling Gods

5

I have been riding on Fulcrum wheels for years now, and have never had a complaint. My better half gifted these to me as a well deserved, although not needed, upgrade. My old wheelset was a pair of Fulcrum Racing Quattro that are still very much in use depending on my ride plan. I am ever grateful!!! They are quiet, smooth, fast and responsive. I paired these with my first ever Schwalbe tires and I undertook some component maintenance for a strong supporting cast for these new stars to the show. (New front chainrings, chain, brake and shifter cables/housings and of course they got a brand new cassette.) Like a new bike? Certainly. These Racing Zeros are super quiet. The freewheel is like a ninja. My Quattros were never noisy, but the Zeros are just noticeably absent of sound. It took a touch of getting used to, initially. The brake pad rim engagement is also super quiet also; but there is no delay in deceleration or stopping. Oh what a joy they are! You know that feeling of being able to pedal forever? These babies will coax you into PR after PR. The spin up real nice and the hubs just want to spin/roll forever! It's like butter, baby... Upgrading in the same line has proven to be wonderfully informative and I love the Fulcrum brand. This Fulcrum Racing Zero wheelset is well worth the price. If the addage that a wheelset is the best dollar for dollar upgrade on a rig, than I thin these are definitely worth your consideration. 5 stars in every way! Safe riding!!!

Good wheels

5

These wheels are a replacement for the stock Roval wheels which came on my 2012 Tarmac, apparently an equivalent replacement by some experts. The Rovals needed replacement due to rim split at the spokes, 4 to be precise. After 15K kilometers I'm told this is to be expected. So after 1500kms on these new wheels I have to say that I am quite pleased, they feel light and with that comes responsiveness on attacks up the hills. They do catch the cross wind more than my old wheels but that is probably due to the wider flat spokes compared to my round ones on the Roval. Possibly these same flat spokes make headwinds easier. The rim brakes are sure, no excessive noise here. They expect 25mm tyres but I have some new 23mm which I need to use and I placed that in front and have not had any worry. I would recommend these to a friend.

Great wheels

5

Great wheels. Smooth. Accelerate well. Bought these to ride the winter. Have a set of envys that I love. These wheels are close. I have other sets of aluminum wheels and these are better. I can’t believe how much I like these wheels.

The Best of the Best

5

The racing zero alloy clincher is the top of the line in its category for good reason. These are both lightweight and bombproof, two things that normally do not go together in cycling. The C17 rim accommodates today's wider tires - I'm running 28's and it rides wonderfully - smooth yet stiff. The ceramic bearings were immediately noticeable to me for their smoothness. Taking the stickers off the rims is a chore but the clean solid black rim is worth the effort. A note of caution - the adhesive remover I used accidentally erased the small warranty sticker that is required to remain on...oops. The good news is I have ridden Fulcrums for many years and never had a warranty issue. These replace a set of the Racing 4s and the upgrade was well worth it.

These things just want to roll.

5

First wheel upgrade from a set of Shimano WH-R550 wheels. The Shimanos were not bad and gave years of trouble free service, but the difference with the Fulcrums is immediately apparent. As a wheel rookie I don't know about the technical aspects, but I do know that these wheels will put a smile on your face and make you want to get up early and ride. 100% satisfied. For other wheel rookies- the polished silver spots and small bits of tape on the inside of wheel are normal.

Fantastic wheels

5

Had the narrower version of these a few years ago and when needed some alloys for the good bike these were first choice. Spin forever with the ceramic hub. Light, look great. Zero negatives. Even got free tyres! Fast delivery too, so top marks for probikekit too

Fulcrum Zero - Brilliant

5

Had my wheels for over a year now and thoroughly enjoying them. Stiff, fast, light, smooth and great braking. Great on long distance rides and I have every confidence on harsh country Australian roads. Definitely recommend these great wheels.

Cheap speed

Nice looking wheels with bladed spokes, they replace my Fulcrum 3s which I also liked. They spin very well and feel a couple of km/hr faster if you an measure such things. Rode them in strong winds yesterday and felt no adverse effect.
