This is the Fulcrum 2013 Red Wind XLR 80mm Dark Label Carbon Clincher 700C Wheelset – Shimano 11 Speed Compatible. The most popular wheel depth among triathletes. With your head down, grip the handlebars in the aerodynamic position and push on the pedals. The impressive 80mm rim pushes you faster towards the finish line. This wheelset has an integrated aluminium/carbon rim structure. The exclusive coupling system of the aluminium rim and carbon structure makes the rim extremely rigid, it allows for excellent responsiveness levels and durability of the wheel. The exclusive pressing system for the carbon rim enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections. Thanks to a special operation of the production process, the carbon fiber layup is positioned in such a way as to obtain perfect balancing of the rim even at high speeds. The aluminium hub body gives the wheel a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces weight to the minimum. The oversized flange on the drive side increases the torsional stiffness, increasing reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology -CULT. Behind this project is the exclusiveness of Cronitect steel; using “Advanced by FAG” technology by Schaeffler Group employed for the bearing races. This is steel which takes resistance to corrosion to the highest level; to the point that no grease is necessary for lubrication just a small amount of oil. Top quality ceramic balls, thanks to the absence of lubricating grease and the precision machining of the cup/cone, drastically reducing the friction coefficient. This increases the smoothness of the wheel by as much as 9 times compared to standard bearings. An outstanding result achieved by using cutting-edge technologies in the field of materials processing. The test performed involves spinning the wheel to 500 rpms then letting it decelerate. The test results are amazing: the wheel equipped with CULT ball bearings continues its motion for a full 45 minutes i.e. nine times longer than standard bearings.
