Great Wheels

5

I bought these after a crash ruined my previous rear wheel. After a few hundred miles I'd say they are great wheels for the price. The roll smoothly and have remained true. They are solid and fairly light. No complaints at all.

good delivery time. so far wheels run nice and quiet and smooth. I have a set of Dura ace C34 wheels, and honestly I can't tell the difference, but I ain't no pro either. I like 'em.

Fulcrum Racing 5 winners!

5

This is my second set of Racing 5’s. I have found them to be a great training/racing wheel set. Not too heavy, great sealed bearings that love to spin. Buy them, you won’t regret it and expect many happy miles from them. ProBikeKit is my go-to source for the best wheel prices and fastest shipping, a great company!

Great value

4

These are awesome wheels for the price. I bought them to replace some 12 year old Fulcrum Racing 3s. It’s clear that Fulcrum wheels have improved in that time as for less than half the price my 3s were I’ve got a wheelset that is equally light, lively and zippy with great road feel and smooth running hubs. They are definitely more of an all rounder/training wheel than the 3s as they have more spokes and while the spokes are slightly flattened they’re not exactly bladed spokes like the 3s had. This is partly why I got them though as I’m not racing anymore. Overall the quality is good although I did have to sand back the braking surface on the front wheel as it had a rough spot on both sides that looked like a manufacturing defect. Didn’t take much to do and now they’re perfect. They came out of the box straight and true as well so no issues there. A great all round wheelset that is probably one of the best value wheelsets around at the moment, especially from PBK thanks to their awesome prices.

Hard to Beat These

5

Fulcrum 5's came stock on my Pinarello Rokh in 2013. I was starting out riding trying to loose weight at 250 lbs and they held up for over 7,000 miles and are still straight. Building up a new bike I decided to go with what's been working and they came with all kinds of improvements. Still light, straight, and fast, but with wider rim sections to handle wider tires if wanted, and they look much better that the older versions. I've lost a lot of weight and they are still fast, light, and very responsive. I've upgraded my wife's bike with Fulcrum 5's and she loves them. For the price these are an amazing bargain. I don't think you can get this much wheel for this little price.

Great for the money

5

As others have said, given the price point these are awesome. The freewheel is nearly silent, which I prefer. For Campy users like myself, note that there are two potential cassette lockring thread sizes and these wheels require the LARGER of the two. I pulled a 9sp cassette from my old wheel circa '01 and found the lockring threads were too small. Fortunately I dug thru my tool bag and stumbled upon a spare lockring with larger threads that fit perfectly. Despite being a machinist I was in a hurry and did not measure the actual thread sizes, sorry.

Great Wheels

Great wheels, very light for the price point. Easy to install (no rim tape required) and easy to fit the cassette, all set up and fitted within an hour. Look nice too.

Worth the upgrade

5

Wanted to upgrade the stock shimano wheelset that came with my bike and these fit the bill and budget. Considering these were shipped overseas, the box came undamaged and wheels were true right from the box. Mounted a set of Conti GP's and good to go. Definitely recommend at this price as they were selling for more at my LBS.

Quality Wheelset

5

I was a little disappointed that the rear wheel arrived out of true but that's a relatively minor gripe since I have a truing stand and trued it fairly easily. Although I haven't gotten a chance to ride them yet they appear to be high quality wheels and I'm looking forward to years of use. Weights (on my uncalibrated postal scale) were about 930g rear and 770g front...I believe that's a little bit heavier than the claimed weight.

Value Plus

Wheels arrived safely, quickly and true from the box. I have ridden over 400km on these in the last week and a half on reasonably rough bitumen roads and the wheels have remained straight & true. The wheels spin up well on the flats and are good for climbing also. If you like the sound of a loud/noisy rear hub when you are free wheeling/rolling, you will be disappointed, the rear hub is almost silent. Paired with a set of 25mm Schwalbe Durano tyres they give an excellent ride. Overall the performance, weight and value for money has been excellent.
