The Zero Nite features a “Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation” treated surface for a dark look and superior braking. This is possible thanks to a very fine and compact matrix of alpha and microcrystalline gamma alumina and amorphous alumina embedded on the surface. Thanks to the high hardness of the layer, it presents excellent wear resistance.
There is also a special design for Racing Zero Nite’s braking surface. The design, created by turning, allows superior braking efficiency. Specific blue brake pads should be used with this model.

PEFantastic wheel-set from Fulcrum, out of the box they look solid with large spokes and wide rims but they are also impressively light. The nite look is superb and looks better in reality than in photos. This is my second set of fulcrums, previously had racing 3 which never needed any maintenance, run as smooth as when new, so hopefully these will be same. They are super stiff and spin up very quickly, being more for climbing than aero. This also means that you never have issues with side winds making for a very stable feel. Cant comment on durability of the brake surface, they do come with specific brake pads (braking is extremely impressive, much more so than any other alloy wheel tried) but I wouldn't want to use these all year round. Other great thing about these wheels is that every component is owner serviceable with ease and few tools. Fantastic service from Merlin, wheels came with tyres fitted, you get the pads and good quality wheels bags for safe storage/carrying. The wheels are the racing zero nite C17 and come with full warranty details from Fulcrum which includes a 2 yr guarantee. Great price in the sale also!
OgunWheel Set is awesome. I tested immediately at the race, the result was perfect. I feel huge difference, and its helped to gain my performance especially when you are climbing. Price and performance is perfect. Highly recommended.
