Seeing as this is a ?seven of the best? test, that?s pretty much what we?ve managed to find. While there is an easy winner here, each of these options have something to offer certain riders. As for an overall winner, the wheelset that?s the best all-rounder as an upgrade set, the Fulcrum Racing 3, deliver easily.
