Description

Whatever the situation, the promise is to become the ideal ride companion every day.
Thanks to its magical balance, the new 40 mm profile of these road bike wheels will do credit to itself on any road you tackle together.

Performance? It's aerodynamic, stable and fast.
Climbs? It stays light and reactive when accelerating.
Downhills? It's decisive and easy to handle.
Racing? It's simple – just try it!

The foundation of the Racing Quattro name derives from the Italian word for four or “Quattro” which represents the very versatile rim profile of 40mm. The common denominator throughout the line-up of Racing Quattro wheels comes in the form of this “do-it-all” rim profile that offers both aerodynamic advantages as well as a low rotational mass. With such a combination, the 40mm rim is equally at home on both climbs as well as leading the pack on the flats. It is the one perfect solution for those riding on varied terrain or simply those who want one wheelset that can upgrade their performance on any and all scenarios they may encounter during their time in the saddle. 

To increase lateral and torsional stiffness with respect to previous models beginning in 2016 the Racing Quattro family will come in a 17C (24mm external width) format. The new width also permits a perfect interface for 25mm tyres, offering the perfect balance between increased grip and low rolling resistance. This new tyre interface offers additional advantages as the wider stance of both the tyre and rim create a more streamlined unit that gives an aerodynamic benefit over the 15C rim and 23 or 25mm tyre combination. The carbon fibre rim allows for less rotational weight and thus increased reactivity in addition to an overall lower weight. Quicker accelerations on both the flats as well as on inclines and less weight to drag up the longer climbs that challenge every rider eventually. Working with carbon fiber allowed the engineers at Fulcrum to develop an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and allows the athlete to use his energy to propel himself in front of the competition as opposed to fighting against air resistance.
