The Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite C17 is a best-in-class alloy clincher road wheelset that balances lightweight, durability and performance exceptionally well. While this wheelset feels fast and responsive out on the road, weighing just 1510 grams, thanks to the triple-milled rim construction they still boast class-leading strength and durability. This wheelset also features Fulcrum’s Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation process, which adds a hard, but fine black coating to the outer wall of the rim. Other than giving this wheelset a much stealthier look, this coating also significantly increases rim’s life and resistance to wear. Importantly, because of this coating, you must use the blue brake pads provided.

The slight difference in depth between the front and rear rim helps to reduce system weight and increases the lateral stiffness of the rear wheel, helping to deliver power directly from rider to road. With a rim diameter of 22.5mm, the Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite C17 can accommodate tyres up to 50mm, increasing grip and rider comfort across rougher surfaces.

The front hub shell is constructed from carbon to reduce system weight, while the high-flange rear hub is made of alloy to increase torsional stiffness. Both hubs have proprietary USB bearing internals, which promise a reduction in rolling resistance and increased durability. These high-quality hubs are laced to the rims via 16 bladed alloy spokes on the front, and 21 on the rear which maximises aerodynamic performance and wheel strength. As an added bonus, these alloy spokes are easy and economical to replace should any unforeseen potholes cause any damage. In all, a lightweight, but durable alloy wheelset that is equally at home on fast flat group rides, as well as steep alpine climbs.

Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite C17 Clincher

Stiff and fast, that sums it up. Instant power with no delay even on steep uphills, but especially noticeable on those long, gradual inclines that I like so much. Great descending and cornering. Probably the best wheel I've ridden even compared to the great set of HED I had before and still use on my other bike. Silky smooth ceramic bearings add to the power transfer and a silent freewheel add to the stealthy look and feel of the wheelset. The stickers are discreet and can be taken off quite easily. I have them mounted on a Ti frame with no other colour on it and the combination is striking. Get a pair!


I purchased a set of Zero's early 2014 and have used extensively on my training bike. They roll freely thanks to Ceramic bearings and large spokes keep the wheels super stiff and great for heavier riders. To give you an idea how tough they are.... I hit a large dog about 2 years ago that ran across the road in front of me when I was travelling over 30 km/h and I hit the dog straight on and it never affected the front wheel whatsoever. I was amazed actually when I inspected my bike after I went flying through the air. These wheels are tough and will do the distance. In case you are wondering... I don't know what happened to the dog, but the owner wasn't worried that the dog had been uncontrolled or for my injuries. After landing on my head and shoulder, smashed up my new helmet and tore all the ligaments of my shoulder joint and All the joints in my neck were severly out of line. I was lucky that I was not paralysed. Stay upright and enjoy the ride on these wheels.


Those Fulcrum Nite are amazing ! Super light and stiff. Could feel much better response compared to my old Roval Échappé wheels. Would have paid a lot more for equivalent performance carbon wheels. Also love the ceramic bearings... so smooth !

Good looking wheels

Look like carbon, brake like aluminium. Good looking wheels. Rigid. Flywheel made zero noise. Brake pad a little bit noisy on hard braking. Weight around 1520gr.

Fulcrum Wheelset

The wheelset looks great! Unfortunately I've not had a chance to ride with them yet but in handling them everything is true, smooth and they spin freely. I'm very pleased with the wheels and look forward to riding them when it warms up enough.
