Fulcrum Racing 5 C17 Wheelset

£299.99 £245.00

Thanks to its new design, the ever-popular Racing 5 wheelset has even greater performance than ever before, making the Racing 5 an affordable but also race ready wheel. The 20 spoke design in addition to the 17C wide asymmetric rear rim profile offers remarkable performance in terms of both increased lateral and torsional rigidity as well as increased reactivity. The new design allows for more homogenous spoke tensions and makes for a sturdier, higher performing wheelset.

Technology

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.

Oversized Flange Hub

The Oversize Flange greatly improves power transfer and stiffens the wheel system without having to add spokes or superstructures that increase weight.

Anti-Rotational System

Fulcrum have redesigned the spokes and the hub housings to create a solid and unmoveable whole. Therefore, the spokes will never lose their initial tension, thus keeping the wheel perfectly reactive and centred, and these will remain in the position that have been studied during wind tunnel tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration possible.

Wide Rim Technology

Following request from the competition circuit, Fulcrum have created rims that are wider than before and thus providing the ideal basis for 25 / 28mm tyres of which have become much more common. This wide rim ensures stability, superior comfort and excellent handling.

Differentiated Rim Height

The lower front rim not only improves handling, but also reduces weight. The rear rim has a higher rim of which makes the wheel much more solid and responsive, and is better able to transmit power with increased stability.
