The Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels have gotten a new stealthy look and a wider rim! Thanks to the completely matt black appearance the Fulcrum Racing 3 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.

Brilliant wheels for the price.

Very suitable for my level of riding. I can keep my sevens for the winter. Thinking about buying a spare pair at that price! Delivery and packaging superb! I wish every on-line site was as good especially as they came from overseas.

Confortevoli e scorrevoli

Per sostituire le ruote Mavic Aksium (con copertoni da 23) e fare un salto di qualità, mi sono state consigliate le Fulcrum Racing 3. A meno di esigenze particolari che portino alla scelta di tipologie specifiche di ruote (ad es. alto profilo per alte velocità) anche le recensioni sul web le pongono come modello di riferimento per le ruote a basso profilo. Dopo averle testate sui tracciati più vari, posso confermare tutto quello che si dice di buono. Mi ha subito colpito il comfort che trasmettono sugli asfalti sciupati delle mie zone. Le Fulcrum 3, che montano di base copertoni da 25, attutiscono alla perfezione screpolature/piccole buche nell'asfalto mantenendo la pedalata fluida e veloce. Complici anche i copertone da 25, c'è una grande sensazione di robustezza. Anche l'aspetto estetico nella sua semplicità risulta curato e piacevole. In definitiva si sono rivelate ideali per le mie lunghe escursioni in solitaria. Promosso a pieni voti il servizio di Mantel. Sito web facilissimo da utilizzare, consegna monitorata puntualissima e prezzo imbattibile.

Molto scorrevoli e capaci di attutire bene i tratti con asfalto danneggiato, dando delle buone sensazioni di robustezza. Ottimo il servizio offerto da Mantel: prezzo conveniente, spedizione monitorata avvenuta nei tempi previsti :)

Prisvärda stabila hjul

Hjulen känns snabba men även stabila. Frihjulen är väldigt tyst. Det var klar skillnad mot originala.

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.
