Fulcrum Quattro Wheels Review:
On The Road
The Racing Quattro LG Wheelset is best suited to those who want to go wider than a standard 25mm rim, but aren’t willing to compromise on comfort or weight. The Fulcrum Racing Quattros are the wheels I first tried when I first started exploring wider tyres a couple of years ago. The 35mm deep-section clincher profile is lighter than many shallow section wheels, and fairly cost-effective; it’s a light, stiff and durable wheelset. Offering a broad range of standard depths and colours, the racing quattros are one of the most popular wheels in the Fulcrum range.
Riding the Racing Quattro LG Wheelset is a pleasure on every part of the bike. They accelerate with little effort and maintain a smooth and stable profile throughout the run, cornering like a much lighter wheelset. They respond quickly to changes in speed, which makes them ideal for all types of training. They’re fast and roll easily along the flat for miles yet stability is assured when leaning into a curve or following a straighter line. They won’t suit everyone, but those looking for a fast and smooth wheelset that doesn’t compromise comfort or agility will find these to be a solid option.
If you’re looking for a speedy tyre for a sportive, or a fast training wheel, these are a reliable bet. They’re smooth as you like through the long stuff, and provide great acceleration when you ramp up spin. As versatile training wheels they’re perfect.
Light, quick and super-sturdy, these performance wheelset will take your training to the next level
The Fulcrum Racing Quattro LG Wheelset is an excellent all-round wheelset for an exceptionally reasonable price. Their lightweight construction and wide profile mean these wheels are great for training and sportives, yet they are also suitable for leisurely road rides or even time trialling.
Spinning up to speed is done quickly, allowing the wheels to feel fast and effortless at high speed. Racing Quattro LG are however slightly heavier when compared with the I-Lite Pro, and this can be felt on the flattest of roads. Weight weenies may want to consider the I-Lite Pro for their extra light build.
On the Road the Quattro holds the tarmac very well, and really dominates on long climbs or long down hills. They just keep going in to your top end effort. If your looking for a wheel to use on long steady climbs, any time trial a la Steel Man, or just a fast training wheel, the Quattro holds it’s speed right until the end.
Overall, Fulcrum’s Racing Quattro LG Wheels are a versatile wheelset that works very well as a set of training wheels. They are light enough to be a great option for those who don’t want to sacrifice the performance of their wheels. From tarmac to trails, they are a very reliable and consistent wheelset with a smooth and stable ride.
The Racing Quattro LG is a great set of wheels to begin a transition into wider tyres. Their lightweight and affordable nature will allow the rider to continue training through the winter without feeling any difference between an aluminium wheelset and one with a carbon structure. For those looking to dip their toes in the water, this wheelset is perfect.

The further you delve into this fascinating hobby, the more you may wish to connect with fellow enthusiasts. Cycling clubs can provide you with all sorts of information and new friends in your local area. Cycling clubs vary from the informal no-fixed-route club to the ultra-formal race club.
A few things to consider before contacting your local cycling club.
For your safety, the likelihood is that the club will be affiliated with a national organisation. Most clubs will have links with British Cycling or Cycling Time Trials (CET). Please be aware that some clubs are affiliated with national organisations outside of your own country.
Most clubs will be affiliated with a local authority or sporting body, so you need to be aware of their membership policies. Always get yourself properly insured before you take part in any social rides or organised activities with a cycling club.
Other things to think about are whether you can keep up (or are you fast enough!)? Do you wear a helmet and bike gear? Are you responsible enough to meet your own needs and those of the group?
Most of all, do you enjoy cycling as a GREAT way to stay fit, healthy and to live life to the full? If this is you then you need look no further than getting involved with a cycling club, and you have found that you belong!
