This week's roundup of product news includes bikes, Buffs and lots of wheels. Speaking of which...
Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite wheels
i-ride, Fulcrum’s UK distributor, came visiting road.cc the other day and brought a pair of new Racing Zero Nite wheels along to show us. We did give you some info on these last year but this is the first time we’ve seen them in the flesh.
Fulcrum are launching a Racing Zero Nite aluminium clincher wheel which they say provides better braking than the existing Racing Zero.
The structure and design of the wheel is mostly the same as that of the Racing Zero but a completely new treatment process has been applied to the rim. It’s this new process, Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation, that is said to improve braking performance.
Fulcrum Racing 5s are solid winter and training wheels that are just the ticket if you're saving your best wheels for sunny weather, or race days. They're strong and not too heavy, and have shrugged off months of wet miles with nary a whimper.
Fulcrum’s Racing 5 and 7 wheelsets have been updated for 2014, with changes focused on weight reduction and improving stiffness, achieved with revised rim profiles and updated hubs.
A brand new set of Fulcrum Racing 3s with white hubs and campagnolo freehub body.
These have come off a brand new bike and have never been ridden.
With or without the Wilier Racing Kevlar tyres they came with.
£300 posted, or make me an offer!!
The cyclocross season may be coming to a close, but Fulcrum have just launched a range of specific cyclocross wheels for 2013. The CX Collection includes four sets of wheels based on current designs in the Fulcrum range, but are constructed to withstand the rigours of being ridden in dreadful conditions, with better sealed hub bearings.
