Bundle Deal Fulcrum Racing 7 Road Wheelset, complete with Continental Ultra Sport II 25mm road tyres and inner tubes. Wheels sold as front and rear pair with tyres and tubes fitted.
The Racing 7 is an entry level wheel with a race-ready soul. The same Fulcrum® quality and performance as the rest of the line with advanced characteristics such as an oversized flange and Spoke Dynamic Balance technology.
Fulcrum® engineers have pushed the quality of this wheel even further incorporating an asymmetric rear rim that increases performance in terms of lateral and torsional rigidity as well as reactivity. New technological advancements are added with no compromise in weight savings as the Racing 7 is nearly 90 grams lighter than its predecessor.
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.
Machined braking surfaces - Allow for safe, powerful and adaptable braking in all weather conditions.
Rim with oriented drilling of spoke seat
Steel spokes with 2mm cross-section
Provide high levels of tension and stiffness.
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.

Arrow Straight and nice tight and even spoke tension right out of the box, seem to be pretty tough, have seen a few off road miles and medium hops over pot holes.

This is my second pair purchased. The first ones were a bit out of tension but these pairs are outstanding and have brought my GIANT TCR to life again! She rides so much more aggressive with these tyres and indeed a step up from the stock PR2 she came with. I would definitely recommend these tyres as an upgrade from stock and would consider these entry level race wheels as well as superb commute wheels. The setup is great with the Sport II tyres and couldn't find a better deal online or at an outlet. Merlin Cycles Team you guys are doing outstanding work with your bundles! For anyone interested, I gained 2-3 mph and my average went up from 19-20mph to 21+ mph average speed on commutes.
Mr Cardenas Moreno
I have been a huge fan of Merlin Cycles and with that in mind, I will give an unbiased review of these wheels:
Firstly, they arrived secure and with the added bonus of package needing signature to be delivered (which is a good thing as there are a ton of package thief out here!). Secondly they arrived true with the wheels installed and ready to rock and roll. Lastly, although the wheels were true, they were not (back wheel in particular) tension correctly! This caused the wheel to be flexy and rub on the rim brake when cornering and or simply rub on the rim if you tilted the bike with out any weight! This is of course was an easy fix but an inconvenience! I am giving these wheels a 5 star still because the quality of the wheels is uncompromising once the tension issue was resolved. Thank you Merlin hope you look into this issue and will be buying again from your most reputable bike shop!
