There is a huge Italian tradition of cycle engineering excellence and Fulcrum was born from the very heart of it. Competition testing with world level athletes and the expertise Fulcrum’s engineers possess means Fulcrum have become known for developing unsurpassed products with excellent performance, durability and market leading innovation.
Excellent Power Transfer - 2:1 Two-to-One™ Spoke Ratio, doubles the spokes on the critical drive so no energy is wasted
Class Leading Rolling Resistance - CULT and USB (Ultra Smooth Bearing Technology) use ceramic bearings and cutting edge surface technology to massively reduce rolling resistance. CULT ball bearings are 9 times smoother than wheels with traditional bearings.
2-Way Fit rims can run Tubeless or normal clincher tyres. No tube means the friction caused by the tube rubbing against the tyre is eliminated, Tubeless tyres also hugely improve puncture resistance.
3Diamant Surface treatmentfor increased braking power. Using advanced machinery to improve the tooling of the rim surface. This decreases imperfections and allows for more efficient braking in all weather conditions.
Accelerate with Ease - Although overall wheel weight is important, lightweight rims are where the real performance gains can be made. A wheel with a lightweight rim will accelerate a lot quicker. Fulcrum rims benefit from several technologies such as inter-spoke machining and Mo-Mag to remove excess material and make your wheel faster
Aerodynamic Designs - All Fulcrum wheels are designed with aerodynamics at their core. Many of the wheels in the Fulcrum range have bladed spokes and the Red Wind deep section wheels were heavily wind tunnel tested and passed through several stages of Computer Fluid Dynamics Modelling to substantially reduce drag and deliver excellent handling.
DRSC (Directionated Rim Spoke Coupling) -Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.
