Fulcrum Racing 5 Road Wheelset

The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performance thanks to its new design. The same qualities that have made the RACING 5 such a popular wheelset in the past combine with new elements to make an affordable but race ready wheel. The new 20 spoke design in addition to the asymmetric rear rim profile offers notable performance increases in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset that weighs in at over 100 grams less than its previous version.

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.

Hub:

  • Oversized hubs: increase wheel stiffness and reactivity.
  • High grade, top quality steel bearings with cup and cone construction: 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.

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)
  • Type of Spokes: aero with variable section
  • HUB material (body/axle): Alu/Alu
  • Compatibilty: 100mm (front) / 130mm CAMPA 9/10/11 HG 8/9/10/11 (rear)

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, quality training wheels Bought these for my argon gallium and wasn't disappointed! Pretty light and very stiff. After a rough weather run they were feeling ropey. Called the supplier only to find out they can be completely serviced down to the bearings! Once I got the wheel back it felt as good as new. My first outing with fulcrum but I've been very impressed, saving for some racing zero race wheels now to complete the collection! 24 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Front wheel fell apart on its first downhill. Very, very scary experience. On my first outing with my new Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels, travelling at little over 40mph, on a good road surface, my front wheel started wobbling badly, followed by a front tire “blow out” (the loud bang heard my members of my group both in front of and behind me). I then completely lost control of the bike, and hit the road. On inspection of my front wheel following the accident it would appear that two spokes had sheared out of the central wheel hub, and caused the sudden puncture of the inner tube. After two months and two separate inspections of the failed wheel, fulcrum have issued the following statement: "They have rejected your claim due to broken spokes are the result of impact damage and not the cause the rim tape on the wheel is in tact proving the spokes did not puncture the tube causing the blow out, the hole in the tube does not match up with the broken spokes indicating that the tube blowing caused the impact. Their decision is final." The spokes were not damaged. The rim tape was punctured. Please see pictures associated with this review - note damaged hub, no damaged spokes, and puncture of rim tape. 15 July 2014
