Do you want a Campag quality wheelset, but run Shimano without a Campag logo on your bike? Then Fulcrum Racing 3 is the wheelset you need. These wheels are perfect for entry-level riders and are highly reliable for training riders as well.
This clincer wheelset has milled alloy rims and an inner profile designed according to MoMag technology. This design eliminated the need for rim tape, which also reduces weight. It reduces rotational mass as well. This wheelset interestingly has an oversized drive side flange for optimal handling. Plus, the spokes have a 2:1 ratio that adds to better control and handling.
Rim heights are differentiated to transmit force evenly between the front and the back ends. The front rim heights are 24mm and the back ones are 30mm which facilitated efficient power transfer. The drive side has double the number of spokes than the other side for greater stability. The brand’s Dynamic Balance tech keeps the wheels highly stable. The milled rims also contribute to better stable performance. This is vastly improved amount of stability than what you get with Racing 5.
This model comes with white hubs, which will discolor soon with use. The hubs are tough and are aero inspired. They minimize drag, but not overtly. The wheelset is of course immensely lightweight so riders can pick up speed easily and almost effortlessly. Thanks to the stiffness, climbing is a delight. All in all, this set of wheels is perfect for casual and leisure cycling or for training. The wheelset works in all weather conditions too, and is known to last a very long time.
