The Fulcrum Racing 3 is one of the most versatile and popular wheelsets available. Light enough to race , reliable enough to be used everyday and tough enough for all conditions. The new oversized hubs (looking very smart in white) are lighter and stiffer, for better stiffness and strength.
This wheelset is Shimano 11 speed compatible, it is also compatible with 9 and 10 speed Shimano but you will need to use the spacer provided. Please note that this 11 speed compatibility is a rolling change from Fulcrum for their 2013 wheelsets so please check the description for this message about compatibility.

In comparison to stock wheels these wheels are a tremendous upgrade. Much lighter and roll smoother with stiffer turning abilities.
It's winter so initial impression based on short 10 mile rides. Swapped with Shimano RS81 C24s on a Ridley Fenix, Noticeably faster and a smoother ride but yet to control for tyres: the Shimanos are fitted with Bontrager RW 1s and the combination of stiff wheels and hard case tyres makes for an unforgiving, harsh ride. The Fulcrums are teamed with Continental GP 4000s which seems like a beautiful combination. They roll smoothly, accelerate instantly and are quiet (other reviews notwithstanding). Have yet to see whether matching the C24s with GP4000s will eliminate the performance difference. Suspect it will but the Fulcrums are still about 10% cheaper and more stylist - the white hubs are eye-catching in a good way. Overall, very pleased with these first set of Fulcrums.
Received the wheels in California nice and fast! Factory packaging was superb, but the real treat are the wheels themselves. First off, lighter than advertised: 655g front and 850g rear on my digital scale (Campag freehub, without QRs). making these just 50g heavier than my 2009 Zeros! Build and finish are top shelf, perfectly round and straight. Have about 300 miles on them... Nice and (sprinter) stiff, yet quite forgiving and comfortable in all conditions. They actually feel faster (less resistance) than the Zeros, no doubt due to the thinner, highly strung slight-bladed spokes. They are very stable in cross-wind and blustery conditions. These are just about the perfect do-it-all wheels!
