The Fulcrum Red Wind 50 Clincher is as swift as the wind.
The 50mm high rim is the ideal size for any type of route: aerodynamic on flat stretches, easy to handle and lightweight when the road is uphill or downhill.
Red Wind™ with aluminium and carbon profile for clinchers are the choice for those seeking ever performing and, why not, aesthetically aggressive and elegant road bike wheels.
Rim Dynamic Balance - The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side.
2:1 Two-to-One - When you push on the pedals, the rotational force on the sprocket induces a slackening of the freewheel spokes with a consequent loss of rim tension.
This results in undesirable flex of the whole wheel and an unavoidable loss of energy. Fulcrum has solved this classic cycling problem with its 2:1 Two-to-One Spoke Ratio patent, by doubling the spokes in the critical zones.
DRSC - Directionated Rim - Spoke Coupling - Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.
MOMAG - A magnet and lots of ingenuity. This was what led to the patent for the well-tested “Mounting Magnet” system, or MoMag.
Anti-Rotation System - This new system raises the concept of spoking to a new level of performance for road bike and triathlon wheels.
The Fulcrum engineers have redesigned the spokes and the hub housings to create a solid and unmoveable whole. The result is that the spokes
a) will never lose their initial tension, thus keeping the wheel perfectly reactive and centred
b) will remain in the position that have been studied in the wind tunnel tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration possible.
F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card - 100% Handmade Quality - Right from its inception Fulcrum has been marked by feature that continues to this day: that is to design, prototype and industrialise all the wheels characterised by the red “F”.
Indeed these take shape inside of the R&D, the leading-edge department that represents the beating heart of the Italian company.
Every single component of the wheel, the materials chosen and the technologies applied are the tangible result of the effort that Fulcrum® makes every day to give you maximum performance and reliability.
Traceability - A guarantee of quality
The keyword for their products is: traceable.
If you find a little label attached to any Fulcrum product, do not remove it. It will provide you a guarantee in case of an ascertained defectiveness of a production batch, and so the component needed or wheel will be traceable.
All this because, devoted to its mission, Fulcrum demands the absolute perfection and safety for its customers.
Rim - Integrated aluminium/carbon rim structure: the exclusive coupling system of the aluminium rim and carbon structure makes these road bike rims extremely rigid, it allows for excellent responsiveness levels and durability of the wheel.
Exclusive pressing system for the rim in unpainted carbon enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections.
Hubs and Flanges - Aluminum hub system with high-quality adjustable steel bearings.
Aluminum hubs with oversize aluminum flange and Two-to-One technology to transmit all the power to the ground.
Oversize Flange - Increases the torsional stiffness, increasing reactivity at each change of the rhythm of the pedal stroke.
Spokes and Nipples - Aerodynamic steel profilel ensures the maximum aerodynamic penetration and, thanks to the material employed, lower weight and greater reactivity. Self-locking oversize aluminium nipples: they reduce the peripheral mass of the wheel to a minimum, thus increasing responsiveness. The nipples' self-locking system provides the correct tension of the spokes and does not require any maintenance.
