Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon DB
In use, the Racing Quattros produce a lively, responsive ride – they’re super-stiff, ensuring every time you stamp on the pedals that energy is transferred into forward movement – but the ride is far from bone-shaking.
The rims also benefit from ‘MoMag’ spoke fitting methodology, which removes the need to drill extra holes in the upper surface of the inner rim bed, instead guiding the nipples to the correct location on the rim by using a magnet. Fulcrum claim this results in “greater rim lifetime, greater resistance to fatigue, the possibility to give the spokes greater tension, and greater stiffness which, in terms of performance, mean greater reactivity and acceleration.” Well, if it makes us faster…
One real plus point is that the axle compatibility is available in quick release or thru-axle, making them suitable for any type of system your bike runs, while you can attach your rotors using the standard 6-bolt or Fulcrum’s own AFS system that fixes the rotor more directly to the hub. All the while, the hubs will be dependable thanks to their sealed aluminium construction, working in tandem with flared oversized flanges to provide maximum stiffness through the 2:1 spoke lacing system.
