Durably-built and disc brake-optimised, this thoroughly modern MTB wheelset by Fulcrum takes you from through every gruelling gravel route and bikepacking adventure with balance, poise and power.
Alloy-rimmed for undeniable durability, each of these Rapid Red 5 wheels measures a 23mm internal width, giving a substantial surface area as you take on loose and rocky terrains. At 24mm tall they also assist with keeping you stable and primed for everything as you weave your way through the CX course.
Strengthened by 24 aluminium, straightpull spokes, both wheels keep their shape and structural integrity however hard your ride becomes. Aluminium hubs are on hand to ensure a smooth and consistent rotation, as well as giving dependable support over the bumpiest surfaces. The rear hub comes kitted out with the option of a Shimano or SRAM XD-compatible freehub, giving you added thrust and power transfer for the more challenging sections of your ride.
The tubeless-ready design of each rim also lets you ride with lower inflation tyres for improved control and grip when cornering, as well as giving better puncture protection, making this pair the perfect pick for the mixed terrain rider.
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.
