Hello community.

I'm very confuse and need help.

I will buy new wheelset next week but I do not know wich choose.

I have a Cannondale Supersix with Dura Ace 7900 groupset.

Thanks a lot for your opinion.

Love the C24's, but also had the Fulcrums.... tough decision. Do you do a lot of climbing?

C24. Racing zeros ride harsh due to the aluminium spokes.

Would probably go campy zonda though. Almost half the price of c24, similar hubs to the racing zero but with stainless steel spokes

:thumbup: On the Zonda's. On my second set and they are beautiful. I had the Eurus as well (Fulcrum 1) and I prefer the Zonda for the ride, the price and only a 60-70 gram penalty.

Don't forget that if you need a shimano freehub, this is a steel one, so another 60 gr heavier compared to the campy version ;-) Racing zero's are excellent and really bomp proof. But if i where you, as you already have a 7900 groupset, get a pair of 9000 wheels!

shimano C24 has got a titanium freehub.

Anyway C24 is much lighter than the Racing zero in terms of real weight, maybe because of the lower profile rims that they are using.

C24 are easy to maintain and the rims are better

Shimano without second thought. Silent, durable and so good rolling

I have both. You will be very happy with either choice. To match your group, I would lean toward the C24. Are you going to run tubeless?

I have the Racing Zero's and they're brilliant. Yes, ride is a little bit on the harsh side but they're so stiff and roll so so well. Hub is slightly noisy, but that doesn't bother me at all.

If you want consistency with the groupset, get the Shimano, but I seriously doubt it they're a better product than the Fulcrums. Especially the hubs. The Fulcrums look better too, especially the dark label.

Thank you all...

I took a decision... Fulcrum Racing Zero dark label.

I get better price to this model than DA 9000.

For me, they are prettier too.

And they come with wheel bags, and this is important for me.

Thanks a lot again.
