The engineers at Fulcrum have further increased the quality of the Fulcrum Racing 7 LG road bike wheels over their predecessor's. The asymmetric rear rim improves performance by increasing the wheel balance and stiffness. The latest technological developments were added to the wheels, making the Racing 7 LG nearly 90 grams lighter than the previous iteration. The new rim is wider than before, making it even more suitable for 25 mm tyres.
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.
• Hubs: Fulcrum Racing 7, industrial bearings
• Number of spokes: 18 front, 20 rear
• Lacing: radial on the front side and at the left side of the rear wheel, crossed at the rear right side
• Nipples: aluminium
