Slice through the air. Release all your power and accelerate right up to the finish line. Against the clock or against your rivals, with Racing SpeedTM XLR the winner is you. Light, reactive, and smooth: Racing SpeedTM XLR represents the maximum level of technology available and the best choice for finishing ahead of the pack. The Racing SpeedTM XLR are now also available in the Dark Label version. Racing Speed XLR with Shimano Inc. FW body is compatible with 10 and 11 speed sprockets.

The Racing Speed XLR wheel is entirely hand-assembled by a specialised Fulcrum® technician and is checked in every tiny detail with electronic instrumentation. This ensures maximum performance and reliability for all Fulcrum® wheels.

HIGH PROFILE FOR 50MM TUBULARS

enables the maximum aerodynamic penetration, reducing friction. The design of the profile details makes the wheel extremely manageable even in a crosswind.

FULL CARBON

extremely limited weight. Gives the wheel an extremely high level of lateral stiffness and greater reactivity.

EXCLUSIVE PRESSING SYSTEM FOR THE RIM IN UNPAINTED CARBON

enables an extremely limited weight and a smooth surface free from imperfections.

NEW BRAKE PADS MADE ESPECIALLY FOR CARBON WHEELS

the new blend increases the brake performance on both dry and wet surfaces without increasing the wear and tear on the pad. For a more modular and more secure stop.

AERODYNAMIC PROFILE IN STEEL

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

FRONT

18 aero spokes, radially laced in stainless steel with variable cross-section.

REAR

21 aero spokes in stainless steel with variable cross-section, doubled on the drive side (Two-to-One™).

CARBON 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.

ALUMINIUM AXLE

reduces the overall 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.
