The Fulcrum Racing 3 2018 wheels have gotten a new stealthy look and a wider rim! Thanks to the completely matt black appearance the Fulcrum Racing 3 2018 wheelset looks amazing on every bike. Thanks to the wide rims the 25 mm tyres are better and you will find a lot of advantages, like more stability, more grip and a low rolling resistance. The Fulcrum Racing 3 road bike wheels have been popular on the markets for years, This is because of the lightweight, a high degree of durability, reliability and price quality ratio. The hubs are equipped with an adjustable cup cone system with the advantage that these hubs continue to rotate well under any degree angle, no friction is created compared to industrial bearing hubs and you can extend the durability enormously by regularly inserting some new grease into the hub.

Strong and fast

Changed my Fulcrum Racing stock wheels (15C) to get broader rims which better supports 25 mm tire width. I knocked off apps 350 grams and got better high speed aero properties. Somehow these wheels make me go faster, also in corners where the extra width reduces wobbling and increases my confidence. And the sound. Don´t know how to describe.... I run Conti S2:s...and they simply sound faster as well.

ottime ruote veloci e confortevoli

Da principiante non riesco a capire se siano più o meno reattive delle ruote che avevo prima (Mavic Aksium Elite con copertone da 23 ). In ogni caso ho meno male al fondoschiena, faccio meno fatica e le mie medie sono aumentate.

  • ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo

Zeer fijne wielen

Helemaal objectief zal ik niet zijn, omdat ik met de standaard wielen die bij mijn fiets zaten de nodige problemen heb gehad. Deze wielen van Fulcrum rijden heerlijk. Ze zijn licht, draaien soepel en zien er goed uit. Ik denk dat het in dit segment van wielen niet veel beters te verkrijgen is. Kortom, ik ben erg tevreden en kan iedereen deze wielset aanraden.

  • Soepel draaiende wielen
  • Licht
  • Goed ontwerp/ design

Detailed product description

The concept is simple and elegant: With an item of similar weight, the weight of the rim gasket is balanced on the opposite side.

When you push the pedals, the force will act on the spokes to start the wheel. You don't want to lose power in this interaction. Fulcrum has solved this problem with their 2:1 spoke ratio pattern, by doubling the spoke count in crucial zones on the wheel.

Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all conditions

A system where the spoke nipples can be replaced with a magnet. This is necessary when there are no spoke holes on the outside of the rim

This system brings spokes to a next level. Engineers at Fulcrum have adjusted the spokes and hubs to create a more rigid construction. The result is that the spokes:
Never lose their lateral rigidity, so are always completely centred.
Maintain the tested position from the wind tunnel while driving, for maximum aerodynamic retention.
