Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Clincher Wheelset 2017
Designed with a slightly wider rim to facilitate an easier fitting of 25c tyres allowing the rider to benefit from improved comfort, better grip and slower tyre wear.



Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Clincher Wheelset goes from high to higher performance thanks to its new design. The same qualities that have made the Racing 5 such a popular wheelset in the past combine new elements in order to make an affordable but also race ready wheel.



Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Clincher Wheelset with new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rim profile offers remarkable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version. The new rim is wider than before, 17C

How much is the rest of the bike?


I was going to say 'where is the rest of the bike'

Wiggle will price match too if people prefer them
Good spot. The wide rim is the way to go.
They will be a good 50g heavier than stated. But it's a very good wheelset for the money.
I've got the campy Vento which is very similar. And can't see why I would need a better wheelset for recreational mile munching and a few local sportive s in a season.

How would you rate these day-to-day? I've been using Mavic Aksiums for commutes and sportives, they've been fine and hold up to most abuse pretty well but they're nothing special.

50g! That's killed it for me! Shame, my Chopper needs an upgrade.
Cracking price for 5s. Well done

I doubt they would be much of an upgrade over aksiums.
I rate them very highly. They're not terribly stiff. But I'm very light so never been a problem for me. Quite comfy to ride on. And they give 28mm wide tyres a lot of support.
Bearings in the freewheel are dying on mine despite being looked after and ridden mostly in dry. They're not not going to last on commuter duty I don't think.
If you have the clearance to reap the benefits of a wider rim then they're worth considering.
Would these be compatible with my hybrid bike? (Muddyfox Tempo 300) I'm using Schwalbe Marathon Greenguard 700-38 tyres now. Thanks for any help.
