This weekend, Merlin is offering an extra £39 off these wheels.

The general trend in wheel and tyre choice amongst road riders these days is to go for something a bit wider and this is something that Fulcrum has spotted and reacted to with the latest version of their Racing 3 DB wheels.

We'd advise going for the 25mm or 28mm option when you’re buying tyres for these wheels as the comfort gains are brilliant with no speed sacrifice.

While racers and those looking to go as fast as possible will be looking at properly deep wheels, the rest of will be best served by a set of mid-depth rims.

Review: Fulcrum Racing 3 DB

28mm is a good depth that combines some aero gains over a box-section rim with the stability in windy weather that wheels over 60mm deep lose.

You’ll also find that a semi-deep wheelset like this will climb well, making a great performance choice for riding in the hills.

About Fulcrum

Since 2004, Fulcrum® has developed wheels for bikes with a sole, constant objective in mind: to deliver the best performance that modern technology can offer.

A large part of this task is the responsibility of the R&D division engineering team in Italy. However, if you want to create ever faster wheels, you cannot focus solely on test bench results, you also need to gain feedback from top riders and cycling fans worldwide.

And this is what we do: we race our bikes during lunch breaks or after work, we test our wheels by pushing them to the max, fitting them to the bikes of world champions, listening to suggestions and comments from the world of racing and from our clients.

About Merlin Cycles

Merlin Cycles was initially a mail-order business started in June 1993 by John Moss in the spare bedroom of his house in Whittle Le Woods near Chorley. A few months later the company opened a shop premises in Ormskirk, Lancashire. In 1998 Merlin Cycles moved to larger shop premises in Leyland.

Merlin Cycles spent ten years on the Leyland premises. During this time they began designing their own mountain bikes, including the Rock Lobster steel hardtails and then the Malt aluminium hardtails.

From an original concentration on the UK mountain bike market, recent years has seen the company switch to catering equally for the increasing road cycling market. In 2008 the company moved to their current shop, warehouse and office premises in Buckshaw Village, Chorley.

In 2012 Merlin Cycles began as the sole importer of Dutch-based bike company Sensa. Merlin Cycles now have an exclusive UK deal with Sensa.
