XL is the abbreviation of Extra Light and expresses the work carried out by the Fulcrum® engineers to lower the weight of the already high-performing Red Metal 29” 2010. The new wheel weighs 1750g, almost 100 grams less than the previous version.
The rim is new, more rigid thanks to the new design of the profile, and lightened as the result of a special single milling. The new circular section aluminium straight-head spokes enable greater and more durable tensions, increasing the wheel’s performance and keeping it consistent over time.
The spoking system is hybrid: for the front, 16 crossed spokes on the left and 8 radial spokes on the right; for the rear, 8 crossed spokes on the left and 16 crossed spokes on the right.
Hubs: the new Red Metal 29" XL is available in the QR Standard version with 15mm THRU-AXLE kit (included) for the front wheel, and in the QR standard version only for the rear.
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.
