Fulcrum Speed 55 Disc Brake 2-Way Fit Clincher Wheels - Options.

ABOUT PRODUT:       

The new rim profile characterizing the Speed 55 DB is a further step forwards in the search for the best aerodynamic performance. The model therefore focuses on a demanding and "racing" audience. To improve the rolling resistance (and ultimately the speed) of the wheel/tyre system, we designed this model in the 2-WAY FIT version.
The manufacturing process of the carbon fibre rim without holes in the internal channel - a patented construction technology - also allows a stronger and sturdier construction capable of withstanding even the most extreme racing conditions.  The rim with a 19 mm inner width perfectly matches recent trends of using increasingly wider tyres - a choice that further improves the aerodynamic performance of the wheel/tyre system. This data has been validated by intensive wind tunnel studies and trials where new projects are tested on a regular basis. SPEED 55 DB proved to be the best option in terms of aerodynamic penetration indexes in the Fulcrum range and is derived from the profiles developed for the tubular version used by World Tour teams. 
The SPEED range not only responds in terms of aerodynamic performance. Optimizing performance also requires the wheels to be light and run smooth. The scale stops at 1580 gr and we have chosen to add ceramic USB bearing components

    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.

    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.


    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.

    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.

    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.

    CARBON HUBS

    In line with their aim to save every possible gram of weight and to choose the most advanced technological solutions, the R&D department has developed a seamless carbon hub.
    The fibre selected is woven at 90 degrees, for enhanced balance of torque when pedalling.

    OVERSIZE FLANGE

    The Oversize Flange was developed from the need to create a system to transmit every watt to the ground without dispersion, stiffening the wheel system where necessary, without having to add spokes or superstructures that increase weight.
    The oversize flange uses physics to solve the problem. It increases dishing and enables spokes to be shortened. Doubling the spokes creates a balanced system that is excellent at transmitting torque.

    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.

    SPECIFIC NIPPLE HOUSING

    7% more reliable.

    Such a small part, yet so important. The nipples and their housing are one of the most important element that are taken into account during the design of a wheel.

    During the development of the new E-Mtb Fulcrum rims, a lot of work was put into this aspect. The housing has been re-designed and now it makes it possible to eliminate completely the nipples' hard work.

    Thanks to a special housing, with side guides on both sides, the nipple sets on a stable base, perfectly in position, oriented towards the spoke.

    This makes it possible to make the distribution of the tensions in the rim more even, creating thus perceptible benefits in terms of effort and rigidity: this prevents misalignments under stress and, as a consequence, deformation to the structure.
