Fulcrum Speed 40T Tubular Wheelset.

ABOUT PRODUT:         

Every cyclist has their own preferences once on the saddle, different situations may call for a different bike set up. A side wind, frequent changes in pace, winding yet fast routes…
Devised for more expert, demanding cyclists accustomed to fast cycling and careful about the details on their bikes, the SPEED range already offers an adequate choice with two different depth rims: 40 mm or 55 mm. Medium – low or medium - high. 

From here, we have spoken with the pros on our teams, who have often chosen to combine the two sizes depending on the race route. We then went back to thinking about the different possible situations on the road and we were naturally led to imagine a third possibility: the union of the pluses offered by these two versions when necessary.  

And the outcome was “Combo”, 40 mm at the front, 55 mm at the back, an additional option for the full carbon range. It will be available in tubular “T” and clincher “C” versions.  Maximum stiffness and transfer of power at the back, improved steering and agility at the front. The perfect mix? The road will decide.

    Technologies:

    • AC3 - All Conditions Carbon Control: AC3 enables surprising braking performance, which is very noticeable in difficult weather conditions. Rather than using the traditional machined brake track approach, Fulcrum uses micro laser incisions on the brake track surface to remove resins and create a smooth surface. Lab tests have shown that this process improves braking power by an improvement of 6%. However, in the wet this performance increase jumps to 43%. Bringing braking in the wet closer to the performance experienced when riding in dry conditions.
    • Cult (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology): Using high-end ceramic balls, which perform continually thanks to the absence of lubricating grease and the precise machining of the cup and cone technology, the friction is reduced drastically and in turn increases the smoothness of triathlon and road bike wheels by as much as 9 times compared to standard bearings.
    • Rim Dynamic Balance: Simply and Elegant, the weight of the rim gasket is balanced on the opposite side with an item of similar weight.
    • 2:1 Two-To-One: Every push on the pedals from the rider will force most of that energy on the drive side of the rear wheel. To combat this loss of rim tension and power transfer, Fulcrum has solved this cycling problem with their 2:1 spoke ratio pattern by doubling the spoke count in crucial zones on the wheel.
    • Directionated Rim-Spoke Coupling: An exclusive rim/spoke mounting system. It allows the rim, spokes, hub and nipples to align perfectly, guaranteeing the precise spoke tension in all areas around the wheel.
    • Anti-Rotation System: This system locks the spoke in place once the correct tension is achieved. Engineers at Fulcrum have designed this system to ensure the spokes never lose their initial tension and to remain in the position that has been proven to provide the perfect aerodynamic properties.
    • Unrilled Rim Bed: Featuring no holes on the central section of the rim means that the rim is uniform at every point, free from critical areas subject to stress. The advantages are immediately clear: less weight, longer lasting rims, greater resistance to fatigue, the possibility of giving the spokes more tension and more stiffness which, in terms of performance, means improved responsiveness and acceleration.
    • Plasma Freehub: The freehub body has been Plasma treated, which makes the aluminium especially hard and resistant to surface abrasion and wear. This means the thickness of materials used can be to be reduced to a minimum, achieving a lighter weight, while maintaining lifespan and reliability.
