Detailed product description
The aluminium rim has been designed in such a way that there's a perfect balance between weight and rigidity. Part of this is down to the removal of any excess material on the rims. The MoMag system (no spoke holes in the inside of the rim) further reduces weight as there's no more need for rim tape. Fulcrum has reduced the chance of spoke failure by using straight-pull spokes rather than the traditional J-bend ones. If a spoke fails, it often does at the bend right next to the head of the spoke. Straight pull spokes are completely straight and can therefore handle considerably higher tensile stresses.
The concept is both simple and elegant: balance the wheel by placing a small weight opposite of the valve.
When you apply pressure to the pedals, this force will be transferred all the way to the spokes in an attempt to turn the wheel. The last thing you’d want is to lose power along the way! Fulcrum has ensured your power can go where it’s supposed to with the patented 2:1 Two-to-One spoke pattern, which entails doubling the amount of spokes on the critical drive side.
DRSC - DIRECTIONAL RIM-SPOKE COUPLING
Exclusive rim-spoke connection, which enables Fulcrum to offer equal tension to the rim, spokes, nipples, and hubs under all conditions.
A system with which you replace the spoke nipples using a magnet. This is required as there are no spoke holes on the outside of the rim.
This new system takes lacing the wheels to a whole new level. The engineers at Fulcrum have altered the spoke and hub design to create an even more rigid construction. The results:
• Spokes never lose their lateral rigidity and therefore will remain perfectly centred.
• The tested position created in the windtunnel can be maintained which maximises aerodynamic efficiency.
• Hubs: Fulcrum Racing 3 cup / cone with steel bearing balls
• Number of spokes: 16 front, 21 rear
• Lacing: Radial on the front side and at the left side of the rear wheel, crossed at the rear right side
• Nipples: Aluminium
