It's not by chance that Fulcrum called its family of road wheels "Racing", just as it is not by chance that we push so hard on the pedal with regard to tubeless tyres. In fact, tests carried out in collaboration with Hutchinson demonstrated that a Fulcrum wheel fitted with a tubeless tyre has a rolling capacity more than 31% higher than the same wheel fitted with a normal tyre. This is a huge difference that cannot be ignored by those whose daily objective is competition.
Precisely due to the advantages offered by the tubeless tyres, Fulcrum has now decided to extend this technology to the Racing 3 model as well, but they decided to do it in the most advantageous way for the user. Thanks to the special profile of the rim developed by Fulcrum, it is possible to fit both tubeless and standard tyres. This means being able to take advantage of the best features of both solutions: performance, comfort, and seal for tubeless tyres; convenience of use in training for the standard tyres.
The Fulcrum Racing 3 2-Way Fit wheels differ from the Racing 3 version also in other aspects. First of all, the weight, as this version is a full 80 grams lighter, a huge difference for this type of wheel. In fact, Fulcrum has used differentiated rims, 24mm for the front and 30mm the rear, so that the front wheel, along with radial spoking, produces perfect aerodynamic penetration. The rear wheel, on the other hand, was developed to instantaneously transmit the cyclist's power, the reason why Fulcrum chose a more rigid 30mm rim together with the now celebrated Two-to-One spoke ratio. Here, too, Fulcrum Dynamic Balance keeps the Racing 3 2-Way Fit wheel perfectly stable even at high speeds.
Another difference regards the spokes. Here, too, incredible efforts were made to reduce every single gram without compromising performance and resistance. In this case, Fulcrum kept the same spoking (16 radial for the front and 21 with 2:1 ratio for the rear) but intervened on the thicknesses: 2.2/2/1.6/2 for the front spokes and rear left side, and 2/1.8/2 on the cassette side. On the front of the spokes, Fulcrum introduced the Antirolling Spoke System, which keeps them perfectly in the aerodynamic position and facilitates servicing operations.
About the Fulcrum brand
There is a huge Italian tradition of cycle engineering excellence and Fulcrum was born from the very heart of it. Competition testing with world level athletes and the expertise Fulcrum's engineers possess means Fulcrum have become known for developing unsurpassed products with excellent performance, durability and market leading innovation. Key technologies pioneered by Fulcrum include 2:1 Two-to-One™ Spoke Ratio, which delivers incredible power transfer by doubling the spokes on the critical drive side of the wheels so no energy is wasted. Fulcrum has also focused on class leading rolling resistance through their CULT and USB Bearing Technologies which use ceramic bearings and cutting edge surface technology to massively reduce friction. CULT ball bearings are 9 times smoother than wheels with traditional bearings. All this innovation and technology has produced amazing results for everyday riders and pros alike with 4 world champions in just 6 years, Boonen, Bettini (x2) and Ballan.
