    Fulcrum racing 1's vs Shamal ultras

    Hi I have a set of Fulcrum racing 1's and have a chance to get a set of 2011 Shamal ultras for 750, just want to get peoples opinion on if it would be worth the upgrade. Would I see a difference for the 750 or just stick with what I have. Was also thinking of getting some carbon clinchers. Thanks for your input

    I think the most significant difference is the ceramic bearings used in the Shamal Ultra. I think they are really fantastic bearings, and they feel great, but I wouldn't keep both wheels. If I were you I'd get the Shamal and sell the Fulcrum Racing 1.

    Carbon clinchers sound great in theory but I am not so keen on having to deal with their inferior braking.
