  • When it comes to selecting equipment for winter riding, finding the right wheels is extremely important. However, finding a set of wheels that are durable, versatile, great to ride and at an affordable price can be tricky. Fulcrum have designed wheelsets that are able to cope with gravel, cyclocross and wet winter roads, ensuring that they can deal with the harshest winter conditions.

    Fulcrum Racing 4

    Racing 4

    The Racing 4 is the perfect wheel for riders who believe that a winter ride does not have to be a slow ride. With its 35mm deep rims, combined with the extra stopping power that disc brakes provide; speed and practicality have been Fulcrum's main considerations when designing the R4. At an extremely competitive price and weighing a respectable 1690g for deep section disc wheel, the R4 strikes the perfect balance between usability and performance that you would expect from a good mid-range wheel. Fulcrum have also introduced a new '2-way fit' system, meaning that the R4 can be run using tubeless tyres as well as clinchers.

    Fulcrum Racing 6

    For riders that are slightly less concerned with performance and speed when considering winter wheels, the Racing 6 provides a more affordable option. Despite its smaller price tag the R6 is still an excellent, simple and reliable winter wheel. Due to the fact that it has a shallower rim depth of 26mm it has remained relatively light, weighing just 1690g - the same as the higher spec R4. Like the R4, the R6 also comes '2-way fit ready' providing an added layer of versatility and its disc brake compatibility makes it an ideal winter wheel.

    The Racing 7 is one of the most versatile wheels in the Fulcrum range. Designed to perform on both road and gravel, the R7 comes with a rim that is perfect for tyres that range from 28mm to 50mm. The R7 even comes in a cyclocross specific variant. Weighing in at 1740g the R7 may not be the lightest wheel on the market, but what it lacks in lightness it makes up for in toughness and reliability. As with the R4 and R6 the R7 also comes with Fulcrum's '2-way fit system' and is available in both disc brake and calliper brake versions.
