The Fulcrum Racing 5 LG is a wheelset with a wide range of possible applications. The Racing 5 works perfectly as a training wheelset, but has slightly more performance on tap than your regular training wheels. The wheels have straight pull spokes, reducing the chances of spoke failure. The weight is lower which helps you accelerate more rapidly. The asymmetric rim balances the wheel and inspires confidence in turns. Finally, the wider rims are perfect for use with 25 mm tyres, offering great rider comfort.
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.
