    Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2019

    Installation of the wheels was a painless process. A pair of new Michelin tyres popped onto the clincher rim with no tyre levers necessary, and with the supplied brake blocks fitted to the bike and a cassette slotted onto the rear hub, it was out onto the open road to put them through their paces.

    They feel highly responsive when powering the bike forward over a crest and there's no lag when you need a quick burst of speed. The rigidity is highly impressive and I couldn't discern any flex at all, even during all-out sprints or leaning on them really hard through corners. They're forgiving wheels as well, and deal with rough roads and the odd gravel track without problem.

    Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon updates lighter, wider carbon road wheels

    Posted by Bike Rumor on 20th Feb 2019

    The new carbon rim very clearly looks like it gets a tubeless-friendly shoulder lip to lock the bead into place – a big departure from the previous Zero Carbon rim profile. And without anyone from the Campagnolo side going on the record about it, we’ve heard from a number of riders very happily running the similar new Campagnolo carbon clinchers tubeless without problems as long as they don’t get out of hand with extremely high tire pressures.

    Range-topping Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon wheels

    Posted by Cycling Weekly on 20th Feb 2019

    Fulcrum has done a great job at improving its aluminium Racing Zeros with this carbon offering. Although a little pricey you get a lot of performance. Braking in the dry is brilliant and the wheels feel great and agile. This can be really felt when pushing the descents, which made my recent Majorca trip a true joy. The only downside is that they catch the wind more than other 30mm deep section wheels I've tested.
