Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon review

Range-topping Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon wheels mix carbon rims and aluminium spokes to create a brilliant blend of speed and durability

Fulcrum Carbon Racing Zero
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Fulcrum has done a great job at improving its aluminium Racing Zeros with this carbon offering. Although a little pricey you get a lot of performance. Braking in the dry is brilliant and the wheels feel great and agile. This can be really felt when pushing the descents, which made my recent Majorca trip a true joy. The only downside is that they catch the wind more than other 30mm deep section wheels I've tested.

Shallow sections still have their place in the wheel market a good pair will get you a long way. Although a great pair, like the Fulcrum Carbon Racing Zero’s, will change your bike for the better and now that the Carbon Zero’s are tubeless there isn’t any reason not to have a pair to add a zip to any ride. Totally worthy of a place in this years Editor’s Choice.
