2-WAY FIT™ - 2-Way Fit™ profile for tubeless and clincher
Tubeless technology was first used by the auto industry , then by motorcycles and now has reached the cycling industry. After its debut with mountain bikes the moment has come to “put it on the road”, and that’s what we propose to do.
We have developed our 2-Way Fit™ technology to ensure the perfect compatibility of our tubeless rims with normal clincher types and tubes. 2-Way Fit™ wheels are perfectly multipurpose for tackling every situation. Thanks to a special impression in the valve area, the tubes are fitted with the maximum precision while keeping the tube perfectly stable inside the tyre.
Housing the valve for tubeless tyres is also risk-free, with the unquestionable advantage that there are never any air infiltrations caused by non-ideal positioning when fitting. The advantages are indisputable: our tests have highlighted an unique increase in smoothness. Because there is no tube, the friction caused by rubbing against the tyre is eliminated, while the perfect adherence of the tyre to the rim prevents the dispersion of energy
Fulcrum Road Wheel Features:
TRIPLE MILLING - This special milling makes it possible to reduce the peripheral weight of the rim and to increase the reactivity of the wheel
DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT - In alluminio per entrambi e flangia oversize per il lato cassetta della ruota posteriore che ne incrementa decisamente la reattività. La ruota anteriore presenta 20 raggi in acciaio a sezione tonda da 2 mm
AERODYNAMIC PROFILE IN ALUMINIUM - enables the maximum aerodynamic penetration and, thanks to the material used, less weight and greater reactivity
ALUMINIUM NIPPLES - make it possible to reduce the peripheral mass of the wheel to the minimum, thus increasing its reactivity
OVERSIZED HUB BODY IN ALUMINIUM - provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces the weight to a minimum
TOP QUALITY STEEL BALLS WITH CUP-AND-CONE BEARINGS - reduces friction and provides top performance. The cup-and-cone system makes it easy to adjust the bearings
ALUMINIUM AXLE - reduces the overall weight of the wheel
OVERSIZED FLANGE ON THE DRIVE SIDE - provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke
