CeramicSpeed Wheel Bearings reduce friction, which gives you a lower rolling resistance. Upgrading your wheel bearings to CeramicSpeed will maximise the return you get from your energy. Some upgrade kits are also available in their coated version, which reduce friction and increases resistance to contamination and corrosion. Coated bearings prolong the lifetime even further.
Ceramicspeed Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon Clincher
The Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon takes the company's reputation for producing wheels with racing performance and everyday durability a step further by offering carbon construction and a wider stance for better aerodynamics, lower rolling resistance and enhanced grip. They're perfect for all applications, for the hardened racer or the weekend warrior alike.
The Racing Quattro Carbon boasts a 40mm rim height, as the 'Quattro' denomination suggests. Its Unidirectional full carbon construction ensures low weight and a 'stealth' aesthetic.
The Racing Quattro Carbon boasts a full UD carbon rim and 3k carbon braking surface, tipping the scales at a competitive 1,555g. Aluminium alloy hubs with an adjustable bearing system make for reliable performance in all conditions whilst Two-to-One spoke lacing on the rear wheel adds to the wheelset's strength.
Many professional and amateur cyclists around the world now use wider tyres because they offer noticeable benefits in terms of handling and rolling resistance, so the Racing Quattro Carbon has a European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) measurement of 17C (24mm external) and has been engineered to work optimally with tyres ranging in widths of 25mm to 50mm.
Where are the aerodynamic advantages, however?
When rim width more closely matches tyre width, the airflow around this system tends to be smoother than the 'lightbulb' shape of a wide tyre and narrow rim. And when it comes to lowering rolling resistance, if you can comfortably accommodate wider tyres then you can run lower tyre pressures, which is turn decreases the impact that friction has on forward motion.

CeramicSpeed Campagnolo/Fulcrum Wheel Kits
CeramicSpeed Wheel Upgrade Kits for Campagnolo and Fulcrum hubs/body (Not R5), for improved rolling ability.
Optimise your wheel with CeramicSpeed Wheel Kits and feel the difference immediately.
A CeramicSpeed Wheel Kit reduces friction - the result is higher top speed. The bearing lifetime is proven to be 3-5 times longer than standard wheel bearings. The high velocity of wheel bearings means that bearing friction can have a huge impact on performance.
Ceramicspeed Single Bearings
The CeramicSpeed Single Bearings deliver extremely low friction, improved power transfer, and a lifetime, which is 3-5 times longer when compared to steel bearings usually used in the industry.
All CeramicSpeed Bearings are hand built in Denmark. Super smooth CeramicSpeed grade 3 Silicon Nitride balls are matched (within microns) with hardened steel raceways that feature an ultra-smooth polished groove.
The balls are held in place by a reinforced polyamide cage. Every bearing is optimised with a low viscosity CeramicSpeed “Blue Grease” to minimise fiction and increase bearing life. Non-contact seals complete the bearings, keeping dirt and moisture out. CeramicSpeed Bearings can be used for any cycling discipline: Road, TT, Tri, Track, Cross and MTB. The benefits are super low friction, better power transfer and increased bearing life.
