Bundle Deal Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Road Wheelset, complete with Continental Grand Prix 4000s II 25mm road tyres and inner tubes. Wheels sold as front and rear pair with tyres and tubes fitted.
The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such a popular wheel in the past combine with new elements to make an affordable but race ready wheel.
The new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rim profile offers notable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity.
The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version.
Differentiated rim height - 24 mm at the front to provide optimal handling; 27,5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.
New asymmetric rim profile - Asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non-drive side, giving better symmetry to an asymmetric component. Increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted.
Double-butted steel spokes with aero profile - Enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.
Oversized hubs - Increase wheel stiffness and reactivity
High grade, top quality steel bearings with cup and cone construction - Reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time.
Oversized flange on the drive side - Provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
11 Speed but can be used 9 or 10 speed

Bought them as a replacement for my dented old Aksium set. I feel comfortable and safe with larger rim and wheel profile yet gaining and maintaining speed without compromise. Hub rolling well and quietly. It turned out to be an even better upgrade than what I expected. Good bundle with quality tyres and excellent pricing.
Great strong wheels that are accurately made. The wheel and tyre package are well balanced, run perfectly true and provide a fast comfortable ride at 6 bar. The service provided by Merlin was first class, including the help desk and delivery service. Highly recommended...
This wheelset is awesome for all round riding! It's light enough and stiff enough for climbing and smooth and stable on the flats. The wheelset looks very cool too with the red nipples and white, bright fulcrum decals. The 25mm Conti GP 4000s II tires are very quiet and comfortable over bumps and rough pavement. I put them on my Cervelo RS for training rides and I would definitely recommend this wheelset package to anyone looking for a great every day wheelset.
The Fulcrum 5 LG is the best bang for the buck wheel on the market. Loved my first set so much, buying a second set for my other road bike (Ultegra 6800 11spd on one bike, dura ace 7900 10spd on the other) was a no brainer. At less than $300 with a set of Conti GP4000s, (Tyres are ~$85 before tubes for a set), you're getting a 1650 gram wheel set that you thrash all season and not think twice.
Buy these if: You're on a $500-$3,000 road bike and you're looking for an upgrade over the stock hoops. Yes, I've seen $3,000+ road bikes on the shelf with lesser wheels OR you don't want to put the wear and tear on your nice carbon race wheels.
Spin up quickly and hold speed very well, tyres are fantastically grippy.
Not the lightest but the wheels run true straight from the box and the bearings are smooth, look good with red nipples too. Wheels were supplied with top quality Conti GP4000 tyres already fitted so an absolute bargain at the price charged by Merlin. Very happy
Good solid wheels, great value for money. Very easy to change tyres with the wider rim and the wheels themselves are very stiff.
Fantastic wheel set for amazing price. Wasn't sure about 23mm tyres but on the wider LG rim they are as good as 25mm tyres on a standard wheel. As always Merlin price and delivery first class.
Fantastic wheels at this price point. Light, well made, they are a great training wheel , remaining true and very low maintenance. Again GP4000's are a well proven training tyre giving good puncture protection and good grip on both wet and dry roads. Merlin excelled again with order to delivery in 23 hours !!!
I am really pleased with these. Good every day wheels, and top quality tyres. A real bargain!
Upgraded my Giant Defy 1 2015 with these wheels and I am more than happy with the decision! They are light, look the part and have improved my daily commute. I find they roll a lot more freely and are lighter. I love the red spoke tips. All in all an excellent deal, and great service from Merlin. The tyres need no introduction. They are light and have loads of grip with the black chilli compound.
