When this number came onto the market it marked a massive innovation in the field of low-profile wheels.
What is innovative about the Racing Zero Carbon wheel is the concept: carbon and aluminium blend together to form a unique combination that has successfully re-interpreted the Racing Zero legend with a top-of-the-range version. It has frequently been praised as “super stiff thanks to the aluminium spokes, super reactive thanks to its lightweight rim” as well as boasting “razor-sharp precision” during riding, in addition to being “sturdy and comfortable, light and stable during the tensest moments of a race".
What else is there to add? Nothing, except that this wheel for racing bicycles can be improved with a new, lighter, more reactive and stiffer rim.
The aim of Fulcrum's R&D department was clear and perhaps seen as a given: the character is not to be touched but the performance can be improved.
The rim's standard measurements have stayed the same: 30 mm in height with a 17C groove that is a perfect fit for the 25 mm clincher tyres. What has changed are the materials and the internal and external structure. Twill carbon has been used plus AC3 technology for improved braking.
Racing Zero Carbon is an improved version of the Racing Zero wheel, and is the most sophisticated and innovative racing wheel, made for experienced gran fondo riders, for passionate cyclists who clock up the kilometres to improve their speed, looking for time on the climbs, that perfect feeling, the satisfaction that comes from challenging yourself. For those in search of the ultimate legendary experience.
