Extremely light weight, superlative reliability, aggressive new graphics and performance enhanced by the new oversize flange: the distinctive traits of a class-beating wheel! Racing 3 proves once again that it is the ideal wheel for all cycling enthusiasts.
F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card
Fulcrum supplies each wheel with its own Identity Card (ID) which uniquely identifies the wheel and certifies that it has been manually assembled and has passed all tests required by the strict quality protocol. The F.I.C. ensures that you have bought a genuine Fulcrum product.
The Racing 3 2-Way Fit wheel is entirely hand-assembled by a specialised Fulcrum technician and is checked in every tiny detail with electronic instrumentation. This ensures maximum performance and reliability for all Fulcrum® wheels.
2-Way Fit profile to allow the fitting of either tubeless or clincher. Tubeless allows the use of lower tyre pressures for faster rolling tyres with a greater grip contact patch.
2 special tracks on the rim keep the tyre perfectly in position so effectively that in tests it far exceeds any traditional tyre fitting.
Allows the external profile of the rim be free of holes.
The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the section of the rim opposite the rim joint.
ANTI ROTATION SYSTEM
Fulcrum design for a solid and unmoveable spoke and hub housing. Spokes will never lose their initial tension and will stay perfectly centred.
DIFFERENTIATED MILLED RIM HEIGHT
26mm at the front for optimal manoeuvrability; 30mm at the back to transfer all the power to the wheel
OVERSIZED HUB BODY IN ALUMINIUM
Provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces the weight to a minimum
DOUBLE-BUTTED STEEL SPOKES WITH AERO PROFILE
Enable maximum aerodynamic penetration
TOP QUALITY STEEL BALLS WITH CUP-AND-CONE BEARINGS
Reduces friction and provides top performance. The cup-and-cone system makes it easy to adjust the bearings
Reduces the overall weight of the wheel
9% more torsional stiffness. Greater reactivity to each change in pedalling tempo and more efficient power transmission to the wheel.
2:1 SPOKE RATIO
The number of spokes on the rear drive side is double that of the opposite side. Greater stability of the wheel thanks to the perfect balance between the spoke tensions – greater torsional stiffness and greater reactivity.
Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. Eccentric-closure system allows cyclist to modulate the pressure necessary for heightened sensitivity to find the proper closure for the block. Easy to use, with a material resistant to wear and tear, rust, and pressure.
