Description of Fulcrum Racing 5 LG CX Wheelset - Clincher

The specific cyclocross contruction guarantees Fulcrum® quality performance despite the mud and sand frequently found in cross courses as well as a completely new and revolutionary wheel design which provides an even greater performance.

The Racing 5 CX has a new 21 spoke design in addition to an asymmetric rear wheel which offer notable performance increases in reactivity as well as lateral and torsional reactivity. A new, higher performing and more resistant cyclocross wheel with a significant weight savings is perhaps the best upgrade available for your cross bike this year.


Differentiated rim height: 24 mm at the front to provide optimal handling and 27,5 mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel.

New asymmetric rim profile: The asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symetry to an asymmetric component. Advantages: increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted.

Double-butted steel spokes with aero profile: Enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.

Oversized hubs: Increase wheel stiffness and reactivity.

High grade, top quality steel bearings with cup and cone construction: Reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time.

Double gasket: Protects the ball bearing seats from water and mud, ensures consistent performance over time.

Oversized flange on the drive side: Provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.


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. It is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.

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: 7,5
H. = Handling: 8
A. = Aerodynamic: 7,5
R. = Reactivity: 7
C. = Comfort: 9

An overview of the S.H.A.R.C. classification you will find under attachments.

Note: For Campagnolo 9/10/11-speed or Shimano 9/10/11-speed systems (Shimano 10-speed only with 1 mm spacer which is included with the cassette).

Guter LR Satz zum günstigen Preis
Relativ leichter und stabiler Laufradsatz zum Crossen. Die neue Felgenbreite (17mm) macht sich ebenfalls positiv bemerkbar.
I have used them for about two months now. The wheels are stiff and responsive. The wider rim combined with 25 mm tires makes for at notable lower rolling resistance. I give the Racing 5 five stars because it is a superb wheelset for the money. Are you a heavy rider these wheels will work well for you.
Just received these wheels. Rear wheel 950 grams with 10 speed spacer but wo q-release. Front wheel 761 grams without q-release. The wheels looks very well built and are stunning to look at. Can´t wait to put them on my bike. Note! I bought the CX version with better sealing.
Wiedererwarten geräuschlos
Die Laufräder kommen mit vormontierten Felgenband (20,5mm), der Freilauf ist wiedererwarten geräuschlos... Ansonsten ist alles super.
Absolut empfehlenswerter Laufradsatz
Spitzenlaufradsatz. Ich hatte die "ältere" schmale Version schon im Einsatz und war überrascht über die positiven Effekte der breiteren LG-Ausführung. Ein 23er Reifen hat darauf etwa die Aufstandsfläche eines 24-25ers und fährt sich entsprechend. Der LR-Satz ist identisch mit dem Satz ohne das "CX", mit Ausnahme der doppelten Abdichtung. Auch im CX-Einsatz handelt es sich um antrittsschnelle, stabile Laufräder. Die Verarbeitung ist mustergültig, den Rundlauf eingeschlossen. Ich kann die Laufräder nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen...
