Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • The USB ceramic bearings spin very smoothly.
  • The fat, bladed spokes give the wheels a striking appearance and reduce the chances of spoke failure.
  • The C17 version has a wide rim which improves aerodynamics and comfort.
  • The wheels are stiff and lightweight, making them ideal for climbing and highly responsive.
  • The aerodynamics aren't great. For that, you'll need a deeper and more rounded rim design.
  • The wheels aren't tubeless ready.

Description

Description

Show all
The Fulcrum Racing Zero C17 wheelset features a wider rim design suitable for 25 mm tyres. The wider rim allows the tyre to sit flush with the edge of the wheel, creating a more aerodynamic profile, and allowing the 25 mm tyre to offer optimal comfort while also reducing rolling resistance.

The rim in the rear wheel is deeper (30 mm) than the one in the front (25 mm). The lightweight carbon rear hub has a raised flange on the drive side of the wheel. The combination of the deeper rim and taller flange allows for shorter spokes. These in turn improve the lateral rigidity and increase the efficiency of the power transfer.

The Racing Zero hubs are fitted with Fulcrum USB ceramic bearings. The bearings are lighter, more resistant to external factors, and offer a lower rolling resistance compared to standard industrial bearings. The body has been given a strengthening Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation treatment to prevent the cassette biting into the body. The wheels are available with either a Shimano/Sram body or Campagnolo body.

As expected

Upgraded from the standard Mavic Aksium wheels from my Cannondale Supersix to these - love the stiffness and sound of the wheels. Haven't taken them on a proper (summer) ride so need to see. Shipping to UK was perfect and fast.

Nice wheels but would expect better.

Nice wheels but front is a little out of true and the bearings are not as smooth as expected, front feels a little gritty, needs more rides and report back.

Pros

  • Weight
  • Looks
  • Price

Cons

  • Bearings (so far)
  • Front not true.

Fast, responsive and solid.

Excellent set of aluminium wheels. Beautifully engineered and put together. Perfectly true out of the box and really really good looking. The ride is both smooth and firm and speed is accrued effortlessly.

Detailed product description

USB - Ceramic Ultra Smooth Bearings
Fulcrum has quite the reputation for producing extremely high-quality hubs, especially when it comes to smoothness and reliability. The development of new hubs is all done at Fulcrum with an extreme focus on precision.

Hubs with Ceramic USB bearings offer an enormous advantage for road racers and triathletes when it comes to low rolling resistance, weight reduction, and durability.

DYNAMIC BALANCE
The concept is both simple and elegant: balance the wheel by adding a small weight opposite of the valve.

2:1 - Two To One
When you apply power to the pedals, the forces will be transferred to the rear wheel and propel your bike forward. The last thing you want is for that power to be wasted during this transfer. Fulcrum has solved this by using their patented 2:1 Two to One spoke pattern, doubling the amount of spokes on the side where it's needed most.

DRSC - Directional Rim-Spoke Coupling
Exclusive rim-spoke connection, which allows Fulcrum to create equal tension in the rim, spokes, nipples, and hubs under all conditions.

MoMag
A system which uses a magnet to place the spoke nipples. This system negates the need of spoke holes on the inside of the rim.

Anti-Rotational System
This new system takes lacing the spokes to a whole new level. The engineers at Fulcrum have adapted the spoke- and hub design to create an even more rigid construction. The results:
- The spokes never lose their torsional rigidity, which will mean the wheel stays true.
- They maintain their windtunnel-tested position, to maximise aerodynamic efficiency.
