Extremely light weight, superlative reliability, aggressive new graphics and performance enhanced by the new oversize flange: the distinctive traits of a class-beating wheel! Racing 3 proves once again that it is the ideal wheel for all cycling enthusiasts. Racing 3 wheels provide high performance when racing and when exercise every day, with the same technical solutions as higher range models at a lower price. The advantage is in the rim: no holes and therefore no rim tape, to the benefit of both stiffness and weight. The Racing 3 continues to represent the most reliable "travelling companion" for training rides and the "ideal partner" for any type of race.
Remember this number: 1555. These are the grams representing the Racing 3 weight! An amazing achievement obtained using the rim extrusion process, with reduced section spokes and a pattern.
Racing 3 has always been the balanced training and competition wheel. From now on, thanks to the new features, it will also provide the satisfaction of riding the red "F" brand".
The oversize hubs, with an aluminium body and axle, feature adjustable high-precision bearings to achieve the best performance every time.
The 16 steel front wheel spokes are straight, aero and with a variable thickness of 2.2/2/1.6/2, featuring an innovative anti-rotation system that keeps the spokes in an aero position at all times. The rear wheel has a 2:1 Two-to-One™ ratio, (7 2.2/2/1.6/2 on the left- 14 2/1.8/2 on the crankset side) that helps keep force balance on both sides of the wheel. Spokes are straight, aero, made of steel, and with an anti-rotation system.
The milling rims include the special Fulcrum® Dynamic BalanceTM system that keeps all Racing 3s always balanced, even at high speed. The differentiated rim hight with 26mm at the front for optimal manoeuvrability and 30mm at the back to transfer all the power to the wheel.
Including steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. The eccentric-closure system allows cyclist to modulate the pressure necessary for heightened sensitivity to find the proper closure for the block. Easy to use, with a material resistant to wear and tear, rust, and pressure.
No two wheels are alike, and no two riders. This is why Fulcrum, in collaboration with professional racers as well as amateur enthusiasts, has identified and developed the five most significant indicators that will allow you to choose the best wheel for your riding style and your needs. On a scale of 1-10 the Fulcrum Racing 3 wheelset has received the following rating:
S. = Smoothness: 8
H. = Handling: 9
A. = Aerodynamic: 8,5
R. = Reactivity: 8
C. = Comfort: 8,5
