Customer Rating

Specifically designed for the mud, sleet and rain, the Racing 5 CX bridges the gap between performance, durability and value.

Fulcrum uses a 24mm deep eyeleted alloy rim to balance weight savings with outstanding strength. Double butted aero stainless steel spokes and traditional alloy nipples offer further durability, efficiency, and easy maintenance. Fulcrum's 5-Axis spoke anchoring ensures perfectly uniform tension, extending strength and impact resistance.

The Racing 5 CX hubs feature over-sized bodies for rigid performance and responsive handling. Precision machined races and top-quality steel ball bearings deliver silky smooth performance and complete serviceability. Double gasket seals are specially designed to withstand dirt, mud and other off-road elements.

The Racing 5 CX Wheelset features 16 spokes laced radially on the front wheel, and 21 on the rear wheel, laced in Fulcrum's Two to One pattern. 130mm rear spacing. 700c. Compatible with Shimano/SRAM 10-speed cassettes and Shimano's newest 11-speed systems. Claimed weight: 1760g.

I'm an intermediate rider that totals 500 miles per month, combining flats and hills. This wheelset met the criteria that I was looking for in an affordable and durable set

Wide Rim (I'm running Conti GP 700x24, 80F90R)

Durable (I have Fulcrum Zero and Quattro in my other bikes with thousands of miles, only been trued once)

Clincher (I hope Fulcrum releases a 2-way version of a wider rim wheelset)

Affordable (less than $500)

The wheels, being on a wider platform, provides a very comfortable and solid ride. Pounding the hills didn't cause any flex (I'm 180 lbs) and was very responsive in each pedal stroke. Weight is not as important to me as ride feel and stability. I always enjoy a quiet hub and have great experience with Fulcrum. Overall, this wheelset exceeded my expectations for being a great price, even more bang for my wallet compared to my Zero (very stiff and unforgiving).

If you're on a budget and want a wheelset that's trending towards wider rims, you will not regret buying this set for your training and recreational needs.
