The Fulcrum Racing Zero is definitely steals the show among the Racing series. It tends to be lighter than the other options and faster by comparison as well. Not to mention, they handle flat roads and slopes equally well.
If you were going to purchase a model from the Fulcrum Racing series, one of your best options is the Racing Zero. You should bear in mind, however, that it is also going to cost you more than most of the other wheelsets in that series. Still, it is a price well paid for the performance that you receive with the wheelset.
It is also definitely one of the lightest options as well in the series although it is outclassed by similarly priced wheelsets in other brands. This reduced weight as well as the introduction of aero spokes really comes through with the speed of the bike. We found ourselves accelerating and maintaining speed quite easily. The increased rim depth also makes the transfer of power to the wheels that much faster.
One of the things that you have to like about the Racing Zero is that it is quite versatile on different gradients. Whether you are on flat ground or riding up and down slopes, you are treated to the same experience. This is complemented by the level of durability offered by this wheelset. Even when continued to put the wheelset through its paces, slopes and all it did not back down. What’s more, it did not bear the scratches and dents of its adventures, either.
On a final note, it should be advertised that the Racing Zero does have tubeless compatibility. All in all, there are virtually no complaints about this wheelset. It has always performed well and continues to do so time and time again.
