Fulcrum Racing 3 Wheelset
This is the 2016 Fulcrum Racing 3 Clincher 700C QR Wheelset. The Racing 3 wheels are ideal for both racing and for everyday training. The Racing 3 continues to represent the most reliable ”travelling companion” for training rides and the ”ideal partner” for any type of race. This wheelset features milled rims, the machining makes it possible to reduce the peripheral weight of the rim and makes the wheel extremely reactive. Differentiated rim heights, 24mm at front for optimal manoeuvrability and 30mm at rear for optimal power transfer. These wheels have double-butted steel spokes with an aerodynamic profile enabling maximum aerodynamic penetration. The Spoke anti-rotation system keeps the spokes consistently in the position of maximum aerodynamic penetration.
The oversized aluminium hub body provides a high degree of lateral stiffness whilst keeping the weight to a minimum. Top quality steel balls with cup and cone bearings reduce friction and provides top performance rolling. The cup-and-cone system makes it easy to adjust the bearings. The brand new oversize rear flange provides 9% more torsional stiffness and greater reactivity to each change in pedalling tempo and more efficient power transmission to the wheel.
