Fulcrum Red Wind XLR 50mm Wheelset with CULT™ bearing - carbon/white
The Red Wind XLR are dressed with redesigned and more aggressive graphics. The 2013 design, completely new, still improve the overall quality of the best alu-carbon wheels on the market. Technical specifications are unchanged.
A special aluminium/carbon structure combined with the oversize hub and spokes with the DRSC™ fastening system (Directional Rim-Spoke Coupling) and the Momag™ Technology are only some of the solutions applied to the new Red Wind XLR.
Simply extraordinary - the Fulcrum Red Wind XLR represent one of the top-of-the-range wheels in this segment thanks to their outstanding performance: the exclusive coupling system of the aluminium rim and carbon structure makes the rim extremely rigid, it allows excellent responsiveness levels and durability of the wheel.
The exclusive pressing system for the rim in unpainted carbon enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections. Dynamic balancing on the rim thanks to a special method at the production process, the carbon fiber layer are positioned in such a way as to obtain perfect balancing of the rim even at high speeds. The external profile of the rim allows to be free of holes – increases structural resistance – makes a rim tape unnecessary and reduces the weight of the wheel.
The aerodynamic steel profile of spokes ensuring the maximum aerodynamic penetration and thanks to the material employed, lower weight and greater reactivity. Spokes anti-rotation System™ keeps the spokes in the position of maximum aerodynamic penetration. Self-locking oversize aluminium nipples 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. There are 21 spokes for the rear with doubling spokes on the freehub side on the rear (Two-to-One™). The DRSC™ (Directional Rim-Spoke Coupling) is a exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.
The 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 for easy ball/bearing adjustment – reduces possible ball/bearing play – precision operation – maintains performance over time. Aluminium axle reduces the weight of the wheel. Ball bearings with CULT™ technology - the combination between the highest quality ceramic balls and bearings in special Cronitec™ steel. CULT™ makes the wheel nine times smoother than the standard system of steel ball bearings. Balls and bearings are lubricated with only a thin film of oil rather than grease. CULT™ makes it possible to eliminate rust and maintain the performance features over time.
Quick release with completely redesigned and lighter aerodynamic-profile: Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. Eccentricclosure 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.
