Fulcrum has given the Racing 3’s a nice upgrade and offer a real edge to the ride that feels fast and performance lead. I really enjoyed my time riding with them and felt a true performance upgrade despite their robust nature.

Out of the box the Racing 3’s felt super light but added with the skewers came out a little heavier than the Cero AR30’s at 1.67kg. Despite that the wheels felt fast and that could be down to a number of technologies applied by Fulcrum; anti-rotation system, differentiated rim height, 2:1 Two-To-One to name a few!
