Simply extraordinary. Two-wheel enthusiasts were waiting for the Fulcrum® “aluminium/carbon” wheels and the wait has been rewarded.

Indeed the Red WindTM XLR represent the top-of-the-range wheels in this segment thanks to their outstanding performance: the special aluminium/carbon structure combined with the oversize hub and spokes with the DRSC ™ fastening system (Directional Rim-Spoke Coupling) give the wheel incredible responsiveness.

Available in the Dark Label and Bright Label version.

features & benifits

RIM PROFILE OPTION

Clincher: it allows to use the traditional clincher.


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.

EXCLUSIVE PRESSING SYSTEM FOR THE RIM IN UNPAINTED CARBON
enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections.

DYNAMIC BALANCING ON THE RIM
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.

AERODYNAMIC PROFILE IN STEEL
ensuring the maximum aerodynamic penetration and, thanks to the material employed, lower weight and greater reactivity.

SELF-LOCKING OVERSIZE ALUMINIUM NIPPLES
they reduce the peripheral mass of the wheel to a minimum, thus increasing responsiveness. The nipples' self-locking system provides the correct tension of the spokes and does not require any maintenance.

ALUMINIUM HUB BODY
gives the wheel a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces weight to the minimum.

OVERSIZED FLANGE ON THE DRIVE SIDE
increases the torsional stiffness, increasing reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.


CUP AND CONE BEARINGS
easy ball/bearing adjustment – reduces possible ball/bearing play – precision operation – maintains performance over time.

3 DIFFERENT BALL/BEARINGS OPTIONS
configure the wheel according to your needs: 
1. top quality standard bearings
2. USB™ ceramic balls
3. balls/bearings with CULT™ system

ALUMINIUM AXLE
it reduces the weight of the wheel

QUICK RELEASE
New, completely redesigned and lighter aerodynamic-profile wheel block. Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die.
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.
