anyone know if tour has tested these?

Seems like the 30-40mm aluminum wheel market actually has some good competition these days. I've had my eye on these, the Accelero 40 pro, Easton EA90 TT, and Kinlin xr380. Just not sure what should be the deciding factor.

Holy crap those rims are beefy. Thanks chiumomo. On the plus side as boolinwall wrote, these things (scirocco 35) are stiff. They roll smooth and feel great in the corners. Awesome value as a training wheelset assuming they are as bombproof as they look/feel.

After all, does anyone have the real weight of these 2 wheels? I did not find anywhere a real weight. I would be intersted in one of the 2: fulcrum or campy

Yes, also intersted in the both wheelsets weight for Campy or Shimano.
I would like to buy either the Scirocco or Fulcrum, but I would buy the lighter one, of course :) And I know that weights fluctuate pretty much.

I rode the Quattro and did a review on my blog. See here http://glorycycles.blogspot.com/2013/01 ... ?q=quattro

Given the price, I think it's the Quattro and the weight difference not significant

cwdzoot, the review says they have cup and cone bearings but they are actually cartridge bearings. The Zondas and above have cup and cone bearings.

I'm pretty sure campag changed that for 2014 - Think all their road wheels have cup and cone bearings.

istigatrice, can you provide any evidence re. cup and cone bearings across the board?

I've checked the latest wheel and spares catalogues on the Campag site and all wheels below Zondas are cartridge bearings. The deep section Bullet 50s and 80s are also cartridge bearings.
I would think the cost would prohibitive to use cup and cone bearings over the whole range.

Can anyone with 2014 Scirocco, Vento or Khamsin wheels chime in?

@cwdzoot, can you confirm the type of bearings?

IME having owned or ridden pretty much all of Campags wheels the cup and cone level
is really worth drawing a line under ... i.e. don't but anything below Zondas - which are good VFM from ribble etc.

I was in the shop the other day, saw the new fulcrum racing 5 wheels with the cup and cone bearings. Think it should apply to the equivalent campag wheel.

istigatrice, did you see the hub stripped down? Could it have been a Racing 3 (Zonda)?
