Racing 5 are designed for everyday use and training. An optimum proposal from Fulcrum which guarantees excellent quality.

  • New oversized hubs with flanges for blade hammer-head spokes, and sealed high-quality bearings ensure smoothness.
  • The rear wheel incorporates a new single-piece body which embodies the freewheel body and pawl carrier in a single component resulting in a considerable weight reduction.
  • Fulcrum 2:1 spoke ratio on rear wheel, double the number of spokes on the drive side for greater wheel stability and improved power transfer in the rear wheel. 20 radial aero spokes on front wheel, 24 on rear.

  • The Racing 5’s also have a deep upper bridge on the rim to facilitate clincher tyre fitting.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by fullcrum racing 5 muy buenas ruedas rigidas y muy buenos rodamientos muy a gusto 11 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Wheels on a great price! (SGD $292.92) My Mavic Ackisum Race spokes are getting rusty and didnt want to go through the hassle of replacing the spokes. Ordered the wheels on the 21st Sep and recieved them on the 27th Sep. Superb shipping time considering its shipping from UK to Singapore. Wheels were nicely packed into the box with bubble wrap to protect the wheels. Skewers were kept in an envelope with the other information and papers. Abit dissapionted that the fulcrum logo at the hub was a sticker instead of being pressed on. i'm afriad over time, the sticker may peel off... Wheels were nice and true, had spinned the rear wheel to hear the hub sound but was suprised to hear nothing... had thought that all fulcrum hubs should have a loud clicking sound when free wheeling. got my local bike shop to fix it up and had to use a spacer for my cassettee as i'm on a 10 speed bike. i was also informed that the wheels has to be run-in for the free hub sound to get louder. something to do with the grease in the bearings... overall a very good buy for the price point, nice loud hubs and great value. highly recommended. will come back and add more reviews after trying a few rides. 03 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The actual weight of this wheel-set is 1890 grams (Shimano version) The good new is that the spoke tensions were all very uniform and within spec. Nice looking wheels. The bad news is that the actual weight is significantly higher than the claimed weight. I weighed these wheels on an accurate, calibrated, digital scale, without skewers, and without rim tape. The actual weight of the Shimano version wheel-set is 1890 grams 31 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant!!!! Wheel set top performers I use these wheels for cross and they grip amazingly and you can accelerate is easy. They cut through mud with ease and i would highly recommend them to any cyclocross racer looking for a good set of wheels 12 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great upgrade I bought these to replace a pair of knackered Alexrims on my Specialized Allez winter bike. The difference is night and day, they spin up really easily and are very responsive. They have turned my winter bike from something I ride just because I can't take the good bike out, into something that is a pleasure to ride in and of itself. In a rather non-scientific test, I spun these side-by-side with the Bontrager Race wheels on my other bike and the Fulcrums kept spinning significantly after the Bontragers had stopped ... The wheels were true out of the box, and although I've only ridden 100 miles or so on them so far they feel tough and built to last. Very pleased and highly recommended. 26 December 2012

Answer: 
As the Ultegra 6700 cassette requires a 10-speed specific hub for the deeper splines on the cassette spider; it would not be compatible with this rear wheel.
