Racing 1™ incl. 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.

Great set of wheels!
After a fair amount of research I decided to go for these. They are good all round performers - lightweight yet robust enough for the country roads I ride on. The graphics aren't too garish which is an improvement over the previous models. The freewheel is almost silent which is a nice touch too.
If you don't need the advance hub technology of the Zeros or don't want to go the Mavic route then you can't go worng with these.
I had the 2009 model with those massive spokes and was hesitant to upgrade. These exceeded my expectations. They are just as bombproof as the earlier models. Mavics are too common. Fulcrums are superior to them. I will definitely buy another one if I decide to upgrade my other bike.
Bought these to replace my stock wheels (DT Swiss 3.0's), great service by Merlin and a great price. I was a little worried as I weigh 94Kg so I thought they might flex a bit, but they seem ok even on the up hills.
Just installed the wheels. They look beautiful and roll smooth. Very light yet they feel stiff and strong. My last set of Fulcrum Wheels took a beating and lasted 4 years and 12,000 miles.
I am very happy with these Fulcrum wheels - 524 gram lighter than Racing 7s that were upgraded - much more responsive and free rolling - highly recommended.
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.!
