Weighing just 1685g, Red metal 3s will tackle any climb while the sturdy tubeless rim, oversize hub and the steel straight-head spokes guarantee easy steering, high manoeuvrability and maximum reliability however hard you ride.
- Milled Rim: The milling process provides excellent lateral stiffness at a low weight for an agile, reactive riding feel.
- MoMag Magentic Spoke guide: The spoke nipples, are inserted inside the rim through the valve hole and guided into place with a magnet. This means a uniform rim profile with no holes or weaknesses for improved strength, longevity and weight.
- Variable Section Steel Spokes: These allow a very high spoke tension for maximum stiffness and reactivity.
- Aluminium Nipples: reduce the peripheral mass (rolling weight) of the wheel to the minimum, thus increasing its response and acceleration.
- 2:1 Spoke Configuration: On the rear wheel the number of spokes on the drive side is double that of the opposite side. This gives greater stability, torsional stiffness and reactivity thanks to the perfect balance between the spoke tensions. The front wheel spokes have been doubled on the disc brake side; this keeps the wheel steady when braking.
- Oversize Aluminium Hubs: These provide a high degree of lateral stiffness and enhanced torque transmission for fast, efficient power transfer and impact resistance.
- Oversize Drive Side Flange: This further improves torsional stiffness and reactivity under pedalling.
- Fully Sealed Bearings: exceptional quality and smoothness; high ef?ciency over time and resistance to dirt and grit.
- extremely lightweight with very high rigidity for improved steering precision. Please note: this is not a 20mm thru axle system.
- QR/15mm Thru-Axle front wheel adaptors: These allow the front wheel to be compatible with standard Quick release forks and 15mm thru axle designs.
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.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I thought it was ok to use ordinary tube/tyre combo's on UST rims? I still have some wear left in old set before getting tubeless. I also noticed that a question has already been answered as regards using tubes with these wheels- the answer was yes, it was ok; so, seeing the warning labels was a bit of a shock?
UST stands for Universal Standard for Tubeless. This dictates tight tolerances between the tyre’s bead and the rim.
UST tyres generally have an additional layer of butyl in the casing, to make them airtight without sealant. They also tend to be heavier and have stiffer casings, which is one reason tubeless-ready tyres have become more prevalent.
Tubeless-ready tyres forgo the additional airtight layer, relying instead on sealant, but use a similar reinforced bead to aid in seating the tyre.
The bead hold of the rims is really good.
The picture shows a diameter (hole) of approx 15mm on front wheel.
Internal: 19 mm
External: 24 mm
