About Fulcrum Racing Zero Clincher Wheelset
With a legendarily smooth ride, razor sharp response and bomb proof construction the Fulcrum Racing Zero has long been the benchmark for high end wheels. It has become the world’s most trusted and respected aluminium performance wheelset. RIDE magazine described the Racing Zero as being “one of our favourite wheelsets, regardless of price” and they weren’t alone in praising the Racing Zero with countless positive reviews in cycling magazines, websites and blogs. When a wheel is this good it’s hard to make it better, but that’s exactly the challenge that the engineers at Fulcrum R&D took up.
For 2015 Fulcrum have introduced a stunning new colour scheme with bold new graphics with a dark look. The renowned construction of the Racing Zero gave it a level of durability that is the envy of other competitors. The existing hub design and USB bearings already produced a phenomenally smooth ride but a redesign of the front hub allowed for a reduction in hub size and weight. The rear hub remains relatively unchanged and keeps the oversized flange for class leading torsional stiffness. The rims have a differentiated height of 26mm for the front and 30mm for the rear for superior steering precision with wheel strength and are triple milled to reduce rotational weight and enhance wheel reactivity.
