Cyclocross demands reliability, lightness and reactivity.
The 35 mm wheel by Fulcrum has been designed to give that extra edge to athletes competing in extreme conditions. The new Quattro does not fear mud, sand or rain, and extreme conditions only highlight its superlative performance.
Derived from the Quattro road wheel, the CX with dual hub seals rewards you with superb feel for maximum performance right from the start.
Oversized hub body in aluminium provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces the weight to a minimum. Adjustable ball bearing system in ultra high quality steel for reduced friction and maximum performance even after extensive use. Quick and easy to adjust. Aluminium axle reduces the overall weight of the wheel. Oversized flange on the drive side provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at any change in rhythm of the pedal stroke. Exclusive processing system of the 5 axis hub. This allows the spokes seat to be created perfectly in line with the tensioning line. This solution allows equal tension values to be obtained at every point of the spoke; it reduces stress on the rim and the spokes and keeps the wheel balanced.
The 16 stainless steel front wheel spokes are straight, aero and featuring an innovative anti-rotation system that keeps the spokes in an aero position at all times. The rear wheel has a 2:1 Two-to-One™ ratio, (7 2.2/2/1.6/2 on the left- 14 2/1.8/2 on the crankset side) that helps keep force balance on both sides of the wheel. Spokes are straight, aero, made of steel, and with an anti-rotation system.
New 35mm rim. Developed to strike the perfect balance between aerodynamic efficiency, handling and lightness. The 35mm rim profile increases torsional and lateral stiffness compared with a conventional profile, for improved high speed stability.
Including steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. The 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.
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 Quattro CX wheelset has received the following rating:
S. = Smoothness: 8,5
H. = Handling: 8,5
A. = Aerodynamic: 9
R. = Reactivity: 8
C. = Comfort: 8,5
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).
The included quick releases are not suitable for full carbon drop-outs!
