The Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon Disc combines the best of two worlds. It uses a lightweight carbon rim which helps on climbs and when you accelerate out of a corner, and matches it to the best possible brake performance on descends to really get the most from your ride on any terrain. The medium rim depth provides you with an aerodynamic edge on the flats.
A great light wheelset, a perfect upgrade from your standard disc wheels and at this price its unbeatable.

Brilliant set of wheels-Well pleased!
Going from my original standard wheels, these have been an absolute bonus to me. Obviously quite light in weight, they have a lovely finish of them to make you feel proud. 40mm deep rims seem to soak up the bumps/ruts in the road nicely. I was a little dubious purchasing these as I'm a heavy lad-97.4kg but after doing about 500 miles, since purchase, they have stood up to some pretty bad hits (poor tarmac-not seen !). Keep your tyre pressures as recommended-I'm running 100 for my weight, and you shouldn't get any 'rim hits'. Clearly a good purchase for my road bashing.
They look great, and ride great-seem to cut through the air better. Only one slight downside (as with any 40mm+ wheel rims really) crosswinds, can be a bit unnerving, especially already being on a carbon lightweight bike. Other than that.
Do yourself a favour, get yourself a set-you wont regret buying these. Oh and by the way, great price as well!
Crosswinds-(all 40+mm rim depths really)

Light, smooth & quiet
Like most of the Fulcrum carbon range, these wheels are well constructed, with a quality finish and roll true from the box. With an intermediate rim height, there's no real issues in blustery conditions and they seem to cope with all riding terrains with no issues to date. Unlike earlier models, which took after the Campag range, the freewheel sound is pleasingly subtle.
Absolutely no issues with delivery or service, arriving within 3 working days and about £150 cheaper than cheapest UK price when purchased.
Fulcrum was the codename for the super fast MiG-29 jet and these Racing Quattro Carbon Disc wheels are very fast in their own right. The aerodynamic 40 mm deep carbon rim is made out of several 3K carbon layers plus UD carbon layers for extra rigidity. The front and rear wheel are laced using the Two-to-One spoke pattern. The side where the brake rotor is mounted has 14 spokes and the other side is fitted with 7 spokes. This creates a perfect balance between weight and rigidity.
