The foundation of the Racing Quattro name derives from the Italian word for four or “Quattro” which represents the very versatile rim profile of 40mm. The common denominator throughout the line-up of Racing Quattro wheels comes in the form of this “do-it-all” rim profile that offers both aerodynamic advantages as well as a low rotational mass.
Please read the Road CC Review of the Fulcrum Racing Quattro carbon wheels With such a combination, the 40mm rim is equally at home on both climbs as well as leading the pack on the flats. It is the one perfect solution for those riding on varied terrain or simply those who want one wheelset that can upgrade their performance on any and all scenarios they may encounter during their time in the saddle.
To increase lateral and torsional stiffness with respect to previous models the 2016 Racing Quattro family will come in a 17C (24mm external width) format. The new width also permits a perfect interface for 25mm tyres, offering the perfect balance between increased grip and low rolling resistance. This new tyre interface offers additional advantages as the wider stance of both the tyre and rim create a more streamlined unit that gives an aerodynamic benefit over the 15C rim and 23 or 25mm tyre combination.
The carbon fibre rim allows for less rotational weight and thus increased reactivity in addition to an overall lower weight. Quicker accelerations on both the flats as well as on inclines and less weight to drag up the longer climbs that challenge every rider eventually. Working with carbon fibre allowed the engineers at Fulcrum to develop an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and allows the athlete to use his energy to propel himself in front of the competition as opposed to fighting against air resistance.
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.
