Simply extraordinary. Two-wheel enthusiasts were waiting for the Fulcrum® “aluminium/carbon” wheels and the wait has been rewarded. Indeed the Red WindTM XLR represent the top-of-the-range wheels in this segment thanks to their outstanding performance: the special aluminium/carbon structure combined with the oversize hub and spokes with the DRSC ™ fastening system (Directional Rim-Spoke Coupling) give the wheel incredible responsiveness. Available in the Dark Label and Bright Label version.
This is the Dark Label Version.
USB™ - Ceramic Ultra Smooth Bearings™
Fulcrum® has a long-standing reputation for the extremely high performance of its hubs in terms of smoothness and reliability. In fact, all the projects are entirely developed in our R&D department and we have put obsessive care into taking care of every detail. The hubs with USB™ ceramic bearings (Ultra Smooth Bearings) further enhance the wheels’ smoothness and reduce weight and the need for maintenance. Comparative tests have shown that USB™ bearings are 50% smoother than standard bearings. Now improving your performance during the race or simply going for a ride with your friends will be easier
Fulcrum Road Wheel Features:
RIM PROFILE OPTION - clincher: it allows to use the traditional clincher
INTEGRATED ALUMINIUM/CARBON RIM STRUCTURE - the exclusive coupling system of the aluminium rim and carbon structure makes the rim extremely rigid, it allows for excellent responsiveness levels and durability of the wheel
EXCLUSIVE PRESSING SYSTEM FOR THE RIM IN UNPAINTED CARBON - enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections
AERODYNAMIC PROFILE IN STEEL - ensuring the maximum aerodynamic penetration and, thanks to the material employed, lower weight and greater reactivity
SELF-LOCKING OVERSIZE ALUMINIUM NIPPLES - they reduce the peripheral mass of the wheel to a minimum, thus increasing responsiveness. The nipples' self-locking system provides the correct tension of the spokes and does not require any maintenance
ALUMINIUM HUB BODY - gives the wheel a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces weight to the minimum
OVERSIZED FLANGE ON THE DRIVE SIDE - increases the torsional stiffness, increasing reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke
CUP AND CONE BEARINGS - easy ball/bearing adjustment – reduces possible ball/bearing play – precision operation – maintains performance over time
ALUMINIUM AXLE - it reduces the weight of the wheel
QUICK RELEASE - New, completely redesigned and lighter aerodynamic-profile wheel block. Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. Eccentric-closure system allows cyclist to modulate the pressure necessary for heightened sensitivity to find the proper closure for the block. Easy to use, with a material resistant to wear and tear, rust, and pressure
