This brand new Racing Quattro has been brought in for 2016 with one purpose in mind. They have been designed with a slightly wider rim to facilitate an easier fitting of 25c tyres. This means the rider can benefit from better comfort, better grip and slower tyre wear.
The Racing Quattro Wheelset boasts a deep section clincher profile of 35mm probably the best value aero wheel available. Not only are these wheels aero but Fulcrum have managed to keep the weight of the wheelset down to just 1725g, that's better than many similarly specced shallow section wheels. The Quattro's come with straight pull aero spokes and black anodised nipples coupled with stealth decals to finish off an impressive wheelset. Offering everything from an aero profile to Fulcrum's legendary durability and a competitive weight these are a leading all-round road and triathlon wheelset.
Weight - 1725g

I bought these wheels after reading, watching, and researching almost every wheelset in this weight and pricepoint. I'm a 90kg/200lb 40 year old rider that usually races Cat 3 on a good day and mostly do gran fondos or competitive club rides. I have ridden for over 23 years and have had multiple wheels and bikes. I needed a wheel set to keep up with my weight and current riding style. I found that I could spend alot and ride a lighter wheelset but realistically I would have to replace them in a few years due to spoke replacement or rim fatigue. Carbon is not a good option for my decision in a clincher rim because I didn't want to have to worry about braking surfaces and overheating. So after much deliberation, I purchased the Fulcrum Quattros. Delivery to the US was within about a week, and packaging and handling were excellent. I opened the box to find that these wheels were handbuilt and inspected, true and balanced. The product was spot on with advertised weights and overall looks were impressive. The labeling is simply paper stickers but look great. I also noticed that the bearing covers are made of a plastic cap that clips into place. I have no doubt that it will be fine for miles to come. The braking surface is a milled finish and the extra width of the rim really opened my tires up to a much nicer profile that my previous rims. The bearings are a quality set of sealing replaceable units that rely on the individual bearing seals to keep contaminates out. I would like to see a second set of seals and knowing now, I would have probably paid the extra few dollars to buy the CX set if the weights are within a few grams. My first ride was a 70 mile endurance ride over flat to rolling terrain with both a head and tail wind of about 10-12mph. I can say that these wheels are not mountain climbers but are not overly resistant to climbing. I noticed that I had to put a bit more effort into climbing but once the pace slowed to a grind, the wheels were very responsive and would transfer energy on each pedal stroke if I was slack in my form. However, I believe the strength of these wheels is when you are at tempo or pressure pace. I didn't feel like I was gaining speed as much as I was holding it. The wind was varied in its direction throughout the ride and I only noticed on a few occasions that the wheels were pushed around due to large trucks or cross winds. If you are a solid rider you will not have any issues with the extra rim height. Overall, I am very pleased with these wheels from Fulcrum. I knew going into this purchase that these were not intended to be a upper level weight saving wheelset. I bought these wheels to beat on and to provide a durable piece of equipment to keep my down time minimized during training and riding. I believe that these will work nicely and fit the niche perfectly. As far as the price goes, I couldn't find anything to beat the deal. If so I would writing a different review.
Ok so I've had them two weeks and have about 120k on them. Super strong and pretty aero. They are little difficult to spin up. But once you are rolling they keep going and don't slow down. Great breaking surface with my Campy Potenza brakes they stop fast. I'm running 27cm Ritchey's and they fit really well. Bearings are super smooth. I have some Campy Shamals which I love but wanted some wheels I could beat up and not care. Perfect training set. For the price you can't get a better wheelset!! I'd buy them again and again.
Im a Clydesdale Rider and needed a light set of bullet proof wheels and so far i love these. Stiff but comfortable nice power transfer of power to ground and stylish just finished a century ride on them and no complaints
This is a great wheelset at a great price, you can't go wrong and won't be disappointed. Quiet ride, really nice how they make the tire 'wider' for a little more comfort while not sacrificing any performance. Would certainly buy them again.
Upgraded from ,2015 fulcrum 7 to racing quattros lg and the most noticeable difference is the comfort of the wider rims. I have the same conti gp 2000s II 25mm and also there is a noticeble added grip during cornering. I must add though that coming from 24/27mm rim depth to 35/35mm there is a noticeable difference with the crosswinds. Sudden gusts of wind especially downhill at 40-45 mph can be quite scary which i never felt with the shallower 7s. Overalll there is no difference in terms of weight but the aero benefit plus the comfort of wider rims is well worth the momey.
I have few miles on these so far, but they do feel solid and seem to carry speed well. Mine weighed nearly 1800g with the rim tape installed, well more than advertised, but I figure that is the price of usefully-tall brake tracks on stiff aero rims with the good rim tape already installed. I also like how the wider rim supports the tire laterally, actually improving steering response at the relatively low pressures that I use. I bought these wheels for our spirited local training rides and I think I picked the right wheelset to go with my new 11s components.
Yeah, so they're a little bit heavier than some wheels. The QUALITY though!! Every bit of these wheels is impeccably finished, they are as true as the day I bought them (despite horrible roads where I live), and the 24 mm width matches up perfectly with my 25mm tires for a fast, stable, quiet, aero package. I have no idea how these are selling for the price they are, but as far as I'm concerned this is THE BEST training wheelset on the market. And kudos to PBK for getting these to my door in under a week from ordering (US delivery). Great product, great service!
I am happy so far. A lot quicker than the stock wheels I had on my Orbea. Happy so far.
