Fulcrum Quattro Racing - best wheels for £210ish? Discuss...

Postby millsey_awm » Sun Jan 13, 2013 23:09 pm

Hi all,

Im currently in the mood for a wheel upgrade. Been looking at various options but am being swayed towards the Fulcrum quattros.

Best looking wheel and value for money at this price?

Or not.... :D What do you guys think?

There is a couple of threads knocking around if you do a search. I have just bought a set for my Kuota Kharma, but I have not put them on yet. I bought them to replace a set of pro-lite Bracciano which I had problems with.

I have to say they are a nice looking set of wheels, especially if you have a black and white bike. Reading the other threads and reviews, they seem to be well liked but a little bit harsh over rough stuff, which I can live with for the sake of style :D

I almost bought a pair a few months ago. They certainly seem to tick most of the boxes for an upgrade from stock wheels that come with most bikes. In the end I got a good deal on a second hand pair of Ksyrium Elites, but if that hadn't come along I'd almost certainly have bought the quattro's

Aren't these a slightly better option?

Have a read of this months 220 Triathlon magazine.
page 118 - 119 has a group test in which the Fulcrum Racing Quattro CX comes top.
Worth a read?

Smidsy, do you mean the Ultegra's aren't better than the Quattro's or the Quattros aren't the best wheelset for 210 quid....?
