Detailed product description
The Racing Zero NITE are completely black. With a new look, new technology and "plasma electrolytic oxidation"-treated aluminum surfaces, this wheelset provides a new way of riding on the road. This completely new technology ‘Plasma electrolytic oxidation’ not only provides this wheelset with new good looks, but it also improves its stopping power. A plasma electrolytic oxidation process hardens the metal, this helps to prevent wear and enlarges the stopping power in dry or wet conditions. Its (25mm) high front wheel and (30mm) high rear wheel are perfect in windy conditions. This is because its rear wheel has a higher build which ensures an amazing power transfer.
PLASMA ELECTROLYTIC OXIDATION
A process developed several decades ago in Russian laboratories. The process creates a harder, more durable brake surface. On top of that, it looks fantastic with its sleek, black finish.
USB - CERAMIC ULTRA SMOOTH BEARINGS
Fulcrum has a long-standing reputation for manufacturing extremely high-quality hub systems when it comes to smoothness and reliability.
In fact, all development and production is done in-house to ensure maximum levels of precision.
The hubs fitted with USB (Ultra Smooth Bearings) ceramic bearings provide a clear-cut advantage for wheels used in road racing and triathlons, as they offer lower mechanical drag inside the hubs, reduce the overall weight, and increase durability.
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.
