The new Oversize flange revolutionises the performance of what was already the class-beating aluminium wheel and raises the bar even higher.
Greater overall stiffness and more efficient torque transmission.
Each pedal stroke is transformed into power and acceleration. Available as the exclusive 2-Way Fit version or the classic standard or tubular tyre version, the most competitive wheel in the Fulcrum range now lets you ride even harder
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 - 26mm at the front for optimal manoeuvrability; 30mm at the back to transfer all the power to the wheel
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
HUB BODY IN CARBON - a high level of lateral stiffness and reduces the weight to a minimum
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
