This Fulcrum Racing Zero Tubular Wheelset is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The 2013 Racing Zero is the top wheelset of the Fulcrum® aluminium range. Its extraordinary performance features and high impact aesthetics make it stand out from the crowd.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
The rims are made of extremely high precision aluminium extrusions that make it possible to eliminate all the excess material, so they are ultra-light but at the same time very strong. The front and rear wheel profiles are differentiated: the 26 mm height for the front guarantees excellent aerodynamic penetration, while the 30 mm of the rear wheel means extremely effective transmission of your pedalling power.
Both rims feature the special Fulcrum lightening between the anchoring points of the spokes and the patented Dynamic BalanceTM system that guarantees the maximum stability of your bike even at high speeds.
The hubs have a carbon fibre body and aluminium flange; the special bearings combined with a larger number of balls compared to the standard version place the Zero at the top in terms of smoothness and service life. But we wanted more, so we decided to substitute the high quality steel ball bearings with the ceramic USB (Ultra Smooth Bearing) specially developed by Fulcrum®. This solution significantly increases the smoothness of the wheels, reduces servicing needs, and further decreases the weight.
The spokes are aluminium aero spokes arranged in a radial pattern on the front wheel for better aerodynamic penetration and in the Fulcrum® 2:1 pattern on the rear wheel for immediate transmission of pedal stroke with no dissipation of energy. The nipples are also aluminium, further reducing the peripheral mass of the wheels and thereby increasing their performance.
Racing Zero wheels are compatible with Campagnolo®, Shimano Inc. and Sram Co. drivetrains and are supplied with the new Fulcrum® quick releases.
Dynamic Balance™: Unlike carbon rims, all the aluminium rims are joined. The joint, though indispensable, entails a concentration of material in a single point and creates an annoying "jump" effect at speed. Fulcrum® has eliminated this annoying problem with the Dynamic Balance™ patent.
The concept is simple and elegant: balance the mass of the joint with a mass of the same weight. For top models, this is obtained by a special operation on the section of the rim opposite the rim joint. For entry-level models, Dynamic Balance™ is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.
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.
