Fulcrum Speed 40 Disc Brake 2-Way Fit Clincher Wheels - Options.

ABOUT PRODUT:       

SPEED is synonymous with competition, and represents the ultimate in performance, above all when the stopwatch is the only means used to judge results on a racing bike.  It the name of a product created for World Tour professionals, who use the tubular tyre version, and for all those who use these wheels for racing.

With the above as a premise, what features should the 40 mm-high, non-tubular SPEED wheel - which is ideal in most situations - have?

That's simple: the best of everything. And thus, the SPEED 40 DB, 2-Way Fit (tubeless) + disc brake wheel is born.
SPEED 40 DB is a set of wheels for use with disc brakes that will simply leave you speechless, featuring a cutting-edge rim with a new shape, designed according to innovative technical concepts.  At 26.5 mm, the wheel is wider, with an aerodynamic shape which includes a pronounced 8 mm profile and a "twill" weave carbon fibre texture, optimising the elastic responsiveness of the rim.  

The final aerodynamic profile is the fruit of a lengthy finishing process: from simulations to prototype testing, in order to select the best design whilst taking the side wind and the turbulence created by the disc into account, followed by a long analysis to choose the best materials to be used on the final product.

Need a few more hints to get a real feel for the spirit of this wheel? Here they are: the SPEED 40 DB boasts a 2-Way Fit construction - and as such is tubeless by conception - with a 19 mm wide channel, and a USB ceramic cone & cup bearing system. And, of course, the oversize flanges on the hubs are designed to take full advantage of all the benefits offered by the disc brake.

Ultimately, the SPEED 40 DB is the new point of reference for riders who have chosen to a disc brake, and who are looking for the very best wheels out there, with a true racing pedigree and a perfect mid-profile on the majority of routes. 

    MAIN FEATURES:

    2-WAY FIT™

    2-Way Fit™ profile for tubeless and clincher.
    Tubeless technology was first used by the auto industry , then by motorcycles and now has reached the cycling industry. After its debut with mountain bikes the moment has come to “put it on the road”, and that’s what we propose to do.

    We have developed our 2-Way Fit™ technology to ensure the perfect compatibility of our tubeless rims with normal clincher types and tubes. 2-Way Fit™road bike wheels are perfectly multipurpose for tackling every situation. Thanks to a special impression in the valve area, the tubes are fitted with the maximum precision while keeping the tube perfectly stable inside the tyre.

    Housing the valve for tubeless tyres is also risk-free, with the unquestionable advantage that there are never any air infiltrations caused by non-ideal positioning when fitting.

    RDB™ RIM DYNAMIC BALANCE

    The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side.

    USB™ - CERAMIC ULTRA SMOOTH BEARINGS™

    Fulcrum® has a long-standing reputation for the extremely high performance of its hubs in terms of smoothness and reliability.
    In fact, all the projects are entirely developed in our R&D department and we have put obsessive care into taking care of every detail.
    The hubs with USB™ ceramic bearings (Ultra Smooth Bearings) further enhance the triathlon and road bike wheels’ smoothness and reduce weight and the need for maintenance.

    2:1 TWO-TO-ONE SPOKE RATIO™ - DISC BRAKE

    A system that is as simple as it is effective, the result of the ingenuity of Fulcrum® engineers and attentive observation of the results of the tests performed on the wheels on a daily basis.

    These tests made it possible to understand that the forces that act on the sides of the wheels, and therefore on the spokes, are extremely different; but what’s more, the differences between the front and rear wheels are also evident and significant. The front wheel, in fact, has to remain stable even during braking of the disk on the left side, and the rear wheel, in addition to the sprocket set, has to compensate for the traction of the force on the chain side.

    DRSC™ - DIRECTIONATED RIM-SPOKE COUPLING

    Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.

    MOMAG™

    What is MoMag™?
    A magnet and lots of ingenuity. This was what led to the patent for the well-tested “Mounting Magnet” system, or MoMag™.

    TRACEABILITY

    A guarantee of quality

    The keyword for our products is: traceable.

    If you find a little label attached to any Fulcrum® product, do not remove it. It will provide you a guarantee in case of an ascertained defectiveness of a production batch, and so the component needed or wheel will be traceable.

    All this because, devoted to its mission, Fulcrum® demands the absolute perfection and safety for its customers.

    RIM FULL CARBON TECHNOLOGY

    Full carbon Fulcrum® rims are built using combinations, developed in the laboratory, of different types of fibre, including UD and the famous 90-degree 3K of models at the top of our range.
    To build them we developed a special HTG (high transition grade) resin, whose glass transition point is at a higher temperature than any other fibre used in the bicycle industry.
    This gives incomparable performance when braking.

    WIDE RIM TECH

    Fulcrum®’s R&D department, following requests from the competition circuit, has worked to create rims that are wider than before, about 4 mm or more than previously. This technical choice provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tyres, the sizes currently popular.
    This ensures stability, excellent handling and superior comfort.

    UNDRILLED RIM BED

    No holes on the bridge connector means that the rim is uniform at every point, free from critical areas subject to stress.
    The advantages are immediately clear: less weight, longer lasting rims, greater resistance to fatigue, the possibility of giving the spokes more tension and more stiffness which, in terms of performance, means improved responsiveness and acceleration.

    PLASMA FREEHUB

    The Plasma treatment makes the aluminium especially hard and resistant to surface abrasion and wear. This has allowed thickness of materials to be reduced to a minimum, achieving advantages of lighter weight, while maintaining lifespan and reliability.

    MONOBLOCK HUB FOR DISC

    The rear hub of a top-quality disc brake wheel is a technical problem to be solved. Fulcrum®’s R&D department found itself facing a fundamental choice: on which side to put the oversize flange of the Two-to-one™ system? Disc or sprocket side? Without question - must stay on the sprocket side.
    To combat the loss of braking power from flex and torque of the connector between the two sides of the hub, a special one-piece system has been devised with internal stiffening ribs.
