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 Fulrum have managed to keep the weight of the wheelset down to just 1710g, that's better than many similarly specced shallow section wheels. The Quattro's come with straight pull aero spokes and red 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.
Straight out of the box these wheels are awesome.. I bought them to be my training wheels, but they might actually race with these.. Stiff = Speed!!
I upgraded to this wheelset from my Shimano RS30 standard set and the difference is quite noticeable. These wheels roll very well on flat ground and have increased my downhill speed as well. Climbing is adequate, though this is to be expected from wheels with an aero profile. They are a great value at the price as well and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good mid-level aero wheelset.
A good wheel set and a worthy upgrade to my C'Dale CAAD 8. They are stiff under load and have improved aerodynamics enabling me to maintain higher cruising speeds over distance. The rear hub has good number engagement teeth so pick up is noticeably better. Out of the box the wheels were true and have great balance when spun. I cant comment on longevity after only 250 km but the build quality is good.
Overall a great wheelset
Absolutely love these. Didnt want to get the 3's 'cause just too pricey for me, but these babies made such a difference on the mavic's I had on the bike..spin forever and reduced my 1 hour commute by 10 mins...great looking wheels also......
This was my first proper upgrade to my stock bike. Firstly the wheels look great and make a big difference to the look of the bike. More importantly I suppose, I've noticed a real difference in performance and speed especially when climbing. All in all a great wheelset.
I really like the new Quattro wheel set from Fulcrum. I had a pair of Fulcrum Racing 5s on prior to buying these and I would say the Quattros are about 10% stiffer. So far they have given me 100 trouble free miles. For the heavier riders who are probably wondering what I was before purchasing these , I weigh 210lbs and they seem to cope just fine.
Only done 60kms on them so far but so far so good. Seem to roll much better than my stock standard wheels. Delivered damage free, great service from Merlin.
Cracking wheels, well build, straight as a dye and they feel fast. They also look pretty good as well which obviously helps!
Fantastic upgrade to the factory wheels that come with entry level bikes. Once you get above 25kph you definitely notice the difference with having an aero rim. I've taken them out on some long flat runs (100km +) where they really come into their own, but they are also great on very hilly rides (2000m +) where they are reasonably light for the ascents and fast, and responsive for the descents.
I spent ages deciding on whether to go for the Mavic Cosmic Elites or this model and I do not regret my choice. Furthermore, they are a lot better value than the Mavic model aforementioned, and look better too!
What can I say - really beautiful wheels. Waiting for some warmer days to go out on them but look tremendous on my bike. Then envy of my cycling friends.
Merlin price and the delivery as always superb. Recommend them to friends who all agree.
Excellent wheels. Aerodynamic and sharp looking. Workmanship is top notch. I looked at a lot of wheels and this set was by far the best value. Merlin Cylces rocks!
I haven't ridden on them much yet, but so far they seem pretty great.
