Fulcrum Red Wind XLR 50 USB 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 Light 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
