Hi all,

I’m trying to see if it’s worth getting the previous gen 40C with the 3Diamant brake track vs the AC3 one.

Vs
http://www.wiggle.com/fulcrum-speed-40c ... -wheelset/

From the specs I can find in different sources, AC3 differences are:
Brake track
Twill carbon construction
1420g claimed weight vs 1450g for previous
Graphics

Which means hubs, bearings, width etc is all the same. Anything else?

I already run Bora One 50 clinchers (3Diamant version) on my C60 and I love em. I understand the Fulcrum 40C 3Diamant would be pretty much the same thing, just in 40.

I am doing a new build for a SL6 and planning to mount Fulcrum 40Cs, but not sure if I want to spend more for the AC3 ones. If the Fulcrum 3D is same as Bora One 3D, except depth, then I might just go 3D. Also I like the decals of the 3Ds more and cheaper and I can get them easily locally (in Singapore).

Any one with real world experience on both? Any other thoughts?

Thanks!

Am interested in this myself as am in the same quandary, I always liked my previous experience on the 3Diamant but surely the ac3 will be a little better in the wet even if a little noisier?
Then the next question is whether the 40C are worth the extra over in the UK

But now would you not wait for the Bora WTO tech to spill over to this Fulcrum range?

I have no real world experience with both wheels but I had the same purchasing dilema as you a few months back.

2017 40C 3Diamant or 2018 40C AC3?

For me the positives in favour of the 2017 3Diamant were cheaper (last years stock), slightly better graphics (dark label – negligible but personal preference) and from other users Bora experiences, potentially quieter braking than the AC3.

So I went with the 2017 3Diamant.

Not worth it. My rear bora one 50 ac3 now looks like 3diamant after 6 months use.
Get 3diamant if you can save money.
