New for 2013 is the mega-drive hub flange, improving the stiffness of the wheel and therefore better power transfer. They have also had a great new graphics makeover.
Racing Zero is the top wheel of the Fulcrum aluminium range. Its extraordinary performance features and high impact aesthetics make it stand out from the crowd.
Differentiated rim heights – 25mm at front for optimal maneuverability; 30mm at rear for optimal power transfer.
Triple milling of the rim saves weight but also creates an aerodynamic profile.
Fulcrum Dynamic Balance keeps the Racing 0 wheels perfectly stable but is achieved in the rim milling process rather than spokes in the Racing 5.
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. 16 radial aero spokes on front wheel, 21 on rear.
The Racing 0 wheels feature Fulcrums USB ceramic bearings which are 30% lighter, 40% more resistant and 50% smoother compared to the steel bearings featured in the 3’s, 5’s and 7’s.
Weights: Clinchers- Front 610g, Rear 825g; Tubular Front 615g, Rear 815g.
Buy Fulcrum Racing Zero Clincher Road Wheelset from Chain Reaction Cycles, the world's largest online bicycle store.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
Great wheelset, straight, strong and fast, the ceramic bearings just keep going! Downside is in the cross winds, they do pick up a bit more of the cross wind compared to others, but it depends if you are using these after 60mm carbon or stock r500s/aksiums..but all in all value for money on these is brilliant given the weight and strength. No issues on the rubbish roads of Australia, still straight after a month (2013 edition wheels). Not a 5 due to my personal cross wind issues, nothing else so far downgrades them. BTW GP4000s fit easily.

Purchased the Racing Zero 2013 model 1 month ago, it's my first set of fulcrum wheels so I don't have a lot to compare them up against other han my old wheel set which is high profile carbon set upgraded with ceramic bearings, despite that they are still outperformed by the Fulcrum Racing Zero's - I've raised my average speed by 1,6 km/h which is on the same tires and same route.
I've only had to adjust the hub bearings a bit, which is quite simple...
Bottom line is that so far I'm very happy with the wheels, they're stiff, smooth, and light weight, this is an allround set of wheels that I can reccommend to anyone.

An 11 speed cassette is slightly wider than 10sp, so a 10sp cassette can be fitted to an 11sp freehub with the use of relevant spacers (11 speed wheels are usually supplied with a 1.85mm spacer to reduce them down to be compatible with 8/9 speed, while the 1mm 10 speed spacer is usually supplied with 10 speed cassettes)
