|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
|Tubeless Ready / UST:||Yes|
Featuring a high, ultra-aero profile, this wheelset is ideal for time trials, triathlons and all situations where aerodynamics make the difference when pedalling at high speeds on your road bike. Fulcrum has equipped it with a high-quality full carbon rim construction with unidirectional carbon fibre finishing, so riders can enjoy the best balance of stiffness, strength and low weight performance on their ride. Aerodynamically researched and wind tunnel tested by the brand's engineers for maximum results, its rim width is 27mm and the channel width is 19mm which puts its internal and external dimension in line with modern racing trends.
Fulcrum has kitted out this wheelset with a 2-Way Fit profile, which allows riders to fit both a tubeless tyre or a classic clincher. The advantages are indisputable, as the brand's tests have highlighted a unique increase in smoothness and it doesn’t need any tape for sealing, simplifying and lightening the tyre-rim pairing. Because there is no tube, the friction caused by rubbing against the tyre is eliminated, while the perfect adherence of the tyre to the rim prevents the dispersion of energy. This also means that you'll have more flexibility to choose and test out which tyre works best for you. Tubeless advantages include the ability to run lower pressures for increased grip, comfort and fewer chances of flats or punctures.
Ready for modern racing, this versatile wheelset is equipped with renowned Fulcrum technologies for getting the best performance out of every situation. Its AFS disc brake compatibility ensures that braking is powerful, precise and consistent, so you can tackle whatever the terrain or course conditions throw at you. Another highlight is its Mo-Mag technology that uses no holes on the rim to ensure that the rim is uniform at every point, free from stress points or zones of weakness and, for the clincher profiles no rim tape is required, for greater weight reduction.
This model's spokes are double-butted, rounded and straight-pull for excellent aerodynamic performance and the nipples are aluminium. As far as the internals are concerned, Fulcrum chose sealed cartridge bearings housed in aluminium hubs, for both the front and rear wheel. Coming complete with sleek graphics that will complement any ride, the Fulcrum Wind 75 Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset the perfect choice upgrade for increased speed, comfort and handling on race day.

2-Way Fit: 2-Way Fit profile for tubeless and clincher. Fulcrum has developed 2-Way Fit technology to ensure perfect compatibility of its tubeless rims with normal clincher types and tubes. 2-Way Fit road bike wheels are perfectly multipurpose for tackling every situation. Thanks to a special impression in the valve area, the tubes are fitted with maximum precision, while keeping the tube perfectly stable inside the tyre. Housing the valve for tubeless tyres is also risk-free, with the unquestionable advantage that there are never any air infiltrations caused by non-ideal positioning when fitting.
AFS Axle System: The Axial Fixing System is the solution developed by Fulcrum to fix the disc brake to the hub. The constraint granted by the butt area of the release mechanism, greater than in familiar standard ones, makes it possible to obtain greater structural rigidity and therefore more precise and powerful braking.
Full Carbon Rim: Full carbon Fulcrum rims are built using combinations, developed in the laboratory, of different types of fibre, including unidirectional (UD). To build them Fulcrum developed a special HTG (high transition grade) resin, whose glass transition point is at a higher temperature than any other fibre used in the bicycle industry. This gives incomparable performance when braking. Fulcrum carbon products are also recognisable for their sophisticated workmanship: The rims are moulded with ready-made nipple holes, so no further hole-making is needed. Nor is polishing necessary to give them an impeccable appearance or make them technically ready for mounting.
MoMag: A magnet and lots of ingenuity. This was what led to the patent for the well-tested “Mounting Magnet” system, or MoMag. No holes on the rim mean that the rim is uniform at every point, free from stress points or zones of weakness and, for the clincher profiles no rim tape is required, to the benefit of weight reduction. The advantages are immediately clear: greater rim lifetime, greater resistance to fatigue, the possibility to give the spokes greater tension, and greater stiffness which, in terms of performance, mean greater reactivity and acceleration.

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.
