Verdict

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.

They will offer a significant improvement over a bog-standard set of budget rims and will perform year round in every riding situation. A special nod to the Hope Hoops and Harry Rowland?s custom option, which were both great rides at an excellent price.
