The foundation of the Racing Quattro name derives from the Italian word for four or “Quattro” which represents the very versatile rim profile of 40mm. The common denominator throughout the lineup of Racing Quattro wheels comes in the form of this “do-it-all” rim profile that offers both aerodynamic advantages as well as a low rotational mass.
Please read the Road CC Review of the Fulcrum Racing Quattro carbon wheels With such a combination, the 40mm rim is equally at home on both climbs as well as leading the pack on the flats. It is the one perfect solution for those riding on varied terrain or simply those who want one wheelset that can upgrade their performance on any and all scenarios they may encounter during their time in the saddle.
To increase lateral and torsional stiffness with respect to previous models the 2016 Racing Quattro family will come in a 17C (24mm external width) format. The new width also permits a perfect interface for 25mm tires, offering the perfect balance between increased grip and low rolling resistance. This new tire interface offers additional advantages as the wider stance of both the tire and rim create a more streamlined unit that gives an aerodynamic benefit over the 15C rim and 23 or 25mm tire combination.
The carbon fiber rim allows for less rotational weight and thus increased reactivity in addition to an overall lower weight. Quicker accelerations on both the flats as well as on inclines and less weight to drag up the longer climbs that challenge every rider eventually. Working with carbon fiber allowed the engineers at Fulcrum to develop an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and allows the athlete to use his energy to propel himself in front of the competition as opposed to fighting against air resistance.
