Fulcrum has given its Speed wheel range a striking total black makeover, using acres of gorgeous carbon weave to stunning effect in two new 'competizione' racing wheelsets.

The Italian brand claims the new all-black look of the Speed 40 and Speed 55 CMPTZN DB – almost invisible black decals over the carbon weave – is “decidedly racing” and that it not only gives the wheels a unique and timeless look, but that the minimal decals also save weight – “no small matter considering that with top of the range wheels every gram counts.”
