The Zeros are in the upper 1400 range, mine were 1483g. Zipps are a little heavier around 1580g.


I would recommend the Zeros personally. Extremely stiff, very durable. The hubs are super smooth and make a very nice freehub sound. The Zipps don't seem quite as nice, and have an annoying freehub sound.

They're both obnoxiously loud after use.

My customers that have both choose the Fulcrum Zeros.

I had Ones and chose 101s (front wheel was taken out in a crit...no shops in the large town I was in had Fulcrum [or Campy] spokes).

I prefer how 101s corner and how they hold their speed. The Ones seemed to jump a little better, but it was minimal.
