The aluminum rim, measuring 26 mm high, has been made lighter by facing, an exclusive Fulcrum Wheels patent. The rim groove does not have any spoke holes. Thus not only is the wheel lower in weight, thanks to the absence of rim tape which is not necessary, but there is also a mechanical advantage - greater torsional stiffness and greater wheel elasticity in the vertical sense.
Oversize hubs, with aluminum body and axle, run on adjustable hi-precision bearings for unparalleled performance.
The 2 mm stainless steel spokes sport an aerodynamic profile that favors aerodynamic penetration and reduces the formation of vortices. There are 16 spokes on the front wheel and 21 on the rear one. The front wheel features radial spoking whereas the rear wheel spoking is crossed and doubled on the right side.
The Racing 3 wheel features an exclusive Fulcrum Wheels characteristic - dynamic balancing. As the wheel rotates, all the masses are balanced thanks to the special rim design that counterbalances the joint.
Racing 3 is compatible with HG 8/9/10s- UD 9-10 cassettes.
Racing 1 is the number one product from the Fulcrum Wheels collection.
An aggressive look, hi-technology and lightness. Racing 1 is a lively wheel that is at ease in all racing conditions.
The aluminum rim is 26 mm high and is made lighter by the exclusive Fulcrum Wheels triple facing treatment. The rim groove has no holes, which means that no rim tape is necessary and that the wheel is more torsionally stiff and more vertically elastic. The spokes - 16 on the front wheel and 21 on the rear - are in aluminum and have a variable cross-section. A special aerodynamic design makes for a spoke that widens out as it gets closer to the rim. In this way aerodynamic penetration is improved and the formation of harmful vortices is reduced. The rear wheel sports double spoking on the right hand side. This means that for the same rear wheel stiffness, the stresses are lower and the life cycle of components is much longer.
The wheel employs oversize hubs with aluminum body and axle and adjustable hi-precision bearings.
The Racing 1 wheel features an exclusive characteristic - dynamic balancing. Thanks to the careful distribution of the circumferential masses, the joint is counterbalanced by a special rim design, resulting in fully balanced dynamics of rotation.
Racing 1 is compatible with HG 10s - UD 9-10 cassettes.
RACING 1 SILVER
Racing 1 is also available in the captivating Silver version. The rim, hub and spokes are in anodized matt Silver, for a precious-looking and elegant wheel that blends in perfectly with the colors of the most striking road bike frames.
Racing 1 Silver will not pass unnoticed.
