Fulcrum Racing 4 Vs Campagnolo Scirocco

    Can't see much posted about Fulcrum wheels here. Got a set of Zonda disc wheels but unfortunately my bike has a 15mm front thru axle so they're being returned. I have a good history with Campag as a heavy rider at 110kg, their entry level Khamsin wheels held up where similar priced wheels would pop spokes.

    Upgraded to Zondas a few years ago and had no bother with them. Scirocco would be a safe bet but I have my eye on the Fulcrum Racing 4. They're €100 less, 50g lighter, slightly deeper at 35mm and come with the 15mm adaptor. Reviews seem to suggest the Scirocco are over 1,800g.

    One poster on here who's a similar weight said they're good wheels. User reviews are very hit and miss though, broken spokes, hubs giving out after a few months etc. Need something solid for my commuter and I'm a bit nervous to move away from Campag but I know Fulcrum are similar in many ways.

    Can anyone comment on the Fulcrum Racing 4 or 5?

    I've two bikes - one on Zondas and the other on Fulcrum R3s. Little or no difference. The Fulcrums were on my 'good' bike and the Zondas on the winter/commuter. Last year I got a new pair of Zondas for the 'good' bike and after 9,500km of service I put the Fulcrums on the winter bike. I've put up over 5,000km on them over the winter months on the roads and streets of Dublin without no issues whatsoever.

    I doubt you'll have any issue with the Fulcrums - they're a sub brand of Campagnolo so quality and build is almost identical.
