Fulcrum Red Wind XLR 50 Cult™ Wheelset

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 Bright Label Version.

CULT™ - Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology™

Behind this project is the exclusiveness of Cronitect® steel; using “Advanced by FAG” technology by Schaeffler Group employed for the bearing races. This is steel which takes resistance to corrosion to the highest level; to the point that, no grease is necessary for lubrication, just a small amount of oil.

The top quality ceramic balls, thanks to the absence of lubricating grease and the precision machining of the cup/cone, allow to drastically reduce the friction coefficient and thus increase the smoothness of the wheel by as much as 9 times compared to standard bearings. An outstanding result achieved by using cutting-edge technologies in the field of materials processing.

The test performed involves spinning the wheel to 500 rpms then letting it decelerate. The test results are amazing: the wheel equipped with CULT™ ball bearings continues its motion for a full 45 minutes, i.e. nine times longer than standard bearings

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
