Fulcrum Racing Torq RRS road crankset review£476.50

Value packed carbon compact

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Fulcrum is a division of Campagnolo, and the range-heading Racing Torq RRS bears a close resemblance to the Campagnolo Record crankset, but with a subtly different moulding shape to the spider.

The stiff hollow crank arms use unidirectional and multidirectional carbon fibre for strength and lightness, and the same smooth-running hybrid ceramic bearings (ceramic balls and steel race) used in the Record cranks.

The chainrings have an aluminium oxide ‘Hard-OX’ layer (also used in cutting tools) which has a slippery surface that helps the chain shift from small to large rings. It also cuts down on noise.
