Fulcrum Rapid Red Carbon
Control and power across white unpaved roads, trails and roots. Checkpoints in a race and checkpoints across the landscape of a journey planned, as dots that you want to join together, bringing maps to life. The Rapid Red Carbon 700C are the wheels that will ensure that you cross the landscape quickly and have fun doing it.
Over 4300 hours of severe lab testing and a restless pursuit of technical perfection have brought to life a wheel proven to last in severe conditions and that won’t hold you back to race yourself or explore new landscapes.
From the asymmetric carbon rim design optimizing tension, the light & tough non drilled rim bridge laced with 28 straight pull spokes to an adjustable cup & cone bearings hub, all the elements work as one to amaze with a 1490-gram wheelset designed for gravel.
"Lightness and reactivity are guaranteed by the S-Shape asymmetrical profile carbon rim. This technology improves the balance between the tension of the spokes, decreasing the difference in the dish angle between the spokes on both sides of the wheel. The optimised balance ensures long term performance levels. Moreover the unique shape of the rim profile increases stiffness by 2.5% compared to a traditional U-shaped profile."
The Rapid Red family of wheels now boasts a set of wheels dedicated to those who want to discover new terrains and new trails, with a touch of extra speed.
We have applied the technological knowhow from our top of the range wheels to develop the reactive, light and reliable Fulcrum Rapid Red Carbon, for gravel (and for whatever gravel means to you).
Lightness and reactivity are guaranteed by the S-Shape asymmetrical profile carbon rim. This technology improves the balance between the tension of the spokes.
The optimised balance ensures long term performance levels. Moreover the unique shape of the rim profile increases stiffness by 2.5% compared to a traditional U-shaped profile.
To achieve the maximum performance with tubeless tyres, the Rapid Red Carbon feature a tubeless-specific non-drilled bridge: 2-Way Fit.
The non-drilled bridge has a C-Lux Finish, a mirror-like finish that makes it easier to install the tyre.
The wheel assembly is completed with Fulcrum's patented Mo-Mag technology, which uses a simple and ingenious solution to seat the nipple on the rim hole with a magnet.
The rim has a 30 mm high profile with a mini-hook system that extends its compatibility with a wider range of pressures (the only limit is the one given by the tyre).
Moreover Fulcrum’s dimensional precision guarantees greater safety against the tyre rolling off the rim at low pressures, thanks to the larger support surface available with the wider inner rim width of 25 mm.
And as you’ve come to expect from #fulcrumfast, we have also employed functional solutions that marry aesthetics and performance. At a glance you will immediately notice the new Direct Inmold Matt Finish (DIMF).
The Fulcrum Rapid Red Carbon are the perfect solution for demanding riders looking for a top of range product with “made in Europe” technology.
