Fulcrum Racing 5 Cyclocross Wheelset

The specific cyclocross contruction guarantees Fulcrum® quality performance despite the mud and sand frequently found in cross courses as well as a completely new and revolutionary wheel design which provides an even greater performance. The Racing 5 CX has a new 21 spoke design in addition to an asymmetric rear wheel which offer notable performance increases in reactivity as well as lateral and torsional reactivity. A new, higher performing and more resistant cyclocross wheel with a significant weight savings is perhaps the best upgrade available for your cross bike this year.

Rim:

  • Differentiated rim height: 24 mm at the front to provide optimal handling; 27.5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.
  • New asymmetric rim profile: asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symetry to an asymmetric component. Increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted.

Spokes:

  • Double-butted steel spokes with aero profile: enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.
  • Two-to-One Spoke Ratio TM

Hub:

  • Oversized hubs: increase wheel stiffness and reactivity.
  • Superior quality steel balls on sealed cylindrical bearings: reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time.
  • Oversized flange on the drive side: provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
  • Double gasket: protects the ball bearing seats from water and mud, ensures consistent performance over time.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 753g (front) / 892g (rear) / 1645g (both)
  • Nominal and ETRTO width: 20,5/15
  • Dynamic Balance: No
  • Spoke anti-rotation system: No
  • Machining: No
  • Spoke material: Stainless Steel
  • Spokes: 18 radial (front) / 10 left, 10 right (rear)

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by First look Just came in a 4.5 kg box. Manufacturer id is R5-14CXFRBS1, also label states "Made in Taiwan". Inside - wheels with fitted rim tape, QR axles, 9/10 Shimano/SRAM spacer (freewheel body is 11 speed), multi-language manuals. Manual do not advise to use this product for riders over 109 kg (240 lb) and take special care, if rider weight is over 82 kg (180 lb). Also it prohibits use of 29" MTB tyres. My scales show 1750g for both wheels. Maybe because they got this additional cx gasket, or maybe its precision issues. Checked spokes and axles with a magnet, they are magnetic and probably steel =) Everything looks true and right, will check again after first 300 km. 24 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Потрясающе! Честно говоря, я еще не сталкивался с колесами такого выдающегося уровня. При весе, как у шоссейных, с небольшим количеством спиц - и феноменальная прочность. За этот сезон - 6 тыс. км - они прошли такие дороги, которые и для МТБ-колес оказывались совсем непростыми. Некоторые из них приведены на первых 4-х фото. Само заднее колесо - на пятом. Заднее - поскольку именно на него пришлась основная нагрузка. И после всех этих покатушек, некоторые из которых весьма походили на вытряхивающие душу спуски по каменным стиральным доскам, не замечено никаких "восьмерок", даже минимальных! Полностью подтвердился заявленный фирмой высокий класс ручной сборки. 29 November 2013

I want to replace the QR skewers with a standard bolt and nut axle. What size axle can I use.
All the antitheft Skewers are made of poor quality or overpriced ( see the reviews). And a thief doesn't always carry around a 15mm wrench. And I dont intend to be racing so I don't need to worry about how fast I can get the wheel off . Thank you.

Answer: 
The QR hub only offers clearance to run a 5mm thick skewer, so the anti-theft QR skewers are your best immediate option. The likes of the Halo Hex Keys (below) are quite popular.

I have a 2011 Bianchi Camaleonte 3, with Shimano Deore and Shimano BR-M445 hydraulic disc brakes. I am looking to upgrade the wheels. Will this wheelset work for this bike?

Answer: 
The hubs fitted to these wheels are not disc compatible therefore you would be unable to run them with disc brakes.
