Racing 1™ incl. Wheel Bags, Quick Releases, Spoke Wrench, Spoke Magnet and User Guide
The 2013 Racing 1's have had great graphics makeover and now feature the mega drive hub flange increasing the stiffness of the rear wheel.
Racing 1 wheels have competition in their DNA. If you’re looking for a lightweight wheel that gives the best performance under any condition and has a marvellously aggressive look, you’ve found it.
• Differentiated rim heights – 26mm at front for optimal manoeuvrability; 30mm at rear for optimal power transfer.
• Triple milling of the rim saves weight but also creates an aerodynamic profile.
• Fulcrum Dynamic Balance keeps the Racing 1 wheels perfectly stable but is achieved in the rim milling process rather than spokes in the Racing 5.
• Fulcrum 2:1 spoke ratio on rear wheel, double the number of spokes on the drive side for greater wheel stability and improved power transfer in the rear wheel. 16 radial aero spokes on front wheel, 21 on rear.
• Weight: Front 635g, Rear 850g
Racing 1 wheels are compatible with Campagnolo®, Shimano Inc. and Sram Co. drivetrains and are supplied with the new Fulcrum® quick releases.

These wheels are amazing!!! They were nearly 0.5kg lighter than my previous Giant wheels and they have improved my climbing dramatically. They also look great and with 30% off they were an absolute bargain. Highly recommended and excellent service from Merlin.
The wheels arrived in perfect shape, very true and exactly as advertised.
I have only had a very short ride on the wheels and so far they seem fairly bomb proof. I am a heavy rider at 112kg and push heavy gears, during the short ride I wanted to see if the spoke were settled in and if there were any "pinging" or creaking coming from the wheels, there was nothing.
Delivered in usual quick time, well, packaged in the box, first racing ride in a race last weekend over rough roads, wheels fine... then again thats what I would have expected.. so happy so far. Nice wheelset at a good price. So 5 stars for service and cost. We'll see how they go.
Bought these rims to replace my Mavic Open Pro which wore out the braking surface. These Fulcrum Racing 1 rims are lighter and I notice an improvement on hill climbing. On the flat road I can't notice any difference in speed.They feel marginally less comfortable. Look great. Still running true after about 1000km. Ratchet in the freehub is noticeably noisier when free wheeling, but not as bad as some of the older Fulcrums I have heard. Dissapointed that they don't have a wear indicator on the braking surface. Overall, very happy with them.
Better than I hoped for. Had heard a lot about Fulcrum wheels & everything I had heard was true. They roll so freely it could be scary on some descents until I get used to them.. They also look really good & improved the looks & weight of my bike. Got what I paid for & the price point was a bonus.
Very good price thanks.
I love the wheels -they spin up quickly, the bike 'feels' quicker, and their rigidity means that you can actually feel the power being directed seamlessly to the wheels. I ride a Koga Carbon Team Edition, previously fitted with the in-house wheels the bike came with, and these are a great improvement - a good compromise between weight and durability. They look great too.!
