Fulcrum is dedicated to producing wheels that put you in a position to go as fast as your engine permits. The notion of #fulcrumfast was not intended to apply only to those that have team cars following them or professional contracts but also to those of us with the same performance expectations despite a more modest budget. It is with this concept in mind that the newest #fulcrumfast family, the Racing Quattro collection, was designed.
The aim of this collection is to bring forth a significant performance standard to a wider audience no matter which platform (disc or caliper) or material (carbon or aluminium) they choose. Basically; #fulcrumfast for all users, in all conditions, in any format.
The foundation of the Racing Quattro name derives from the Italian word for four or "Quattro" which represents the very versatile rim profile of 40mm. The common denominator throughout the line-up of Racing Quattro wheels comes in the form of this "do-it-all" rim profile that offers both aerodynamic advantages as well as a low rotational mass. With such a combination the 40mm rim is equally at home on both climbs as well as leading the pack on the flats. It is the one perfect solution for those riding on varied terrain or simply those who want one wheelset that can upgrade their performance on any and all scenarios they may encounter during their time in the saddle.
In an effort to increase the performance aspect of the Racing Quattro even further not only has rim heigth been optimized but also the rim width and design has been constructed in such a way to make the three wheels in this new family even more race-ready. To increase lateral and torsional stiffness with respect to previous models the 2016 Racing Quattro family will come in a 17C (24mm out width) format. The new width also permits a perfect interface for 25 mm tires, offering the perfect balance between increased grip and low rolling resistance. This new tire interface offers additional advantages as the wider stance of both the tire and rim create a more streamlined unit that gives an aerodynamic benefit over the 15C rim and 23 or 25mm tire combination.
The Racing Quattro Carbon incorporates an extremely advanced carbon fiber rim with technology deriving from wheels that come at a much higher price point. The carbon fiber rim allows for less rotational weight and thus increased reactivity in addition to an overall lower weight. Quicker accelerations on both the flats as well as on inclines and less weight to drag up the longer climbs that challenge every rider eventually. Working with carbon fiber allowed the engineers at Fulcrum to develop an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and allows the athlete to use his energy to propel himself in front of the competition as opposed to fighting against air resistance.
The Racing Quattro Carbon DB for disc brakes is compatible with any style fork or axle, thanks to its multiple adapters. Available in either AFS or 6-bolt hub standard, the Racing Quattro Carbon Disc Brake is a well-rounded versatile and race-ready wheelset, perfect for upgrading your ride no matter what standard you choose.
AFS axle system:
The Axial Fixing System is the solution developed by Fulcrum to fix the disc brake to the hub. The constraint granted by the butt area of the release mechanism, greater than in familiar standard ones, makes it possible to obtain greater structural rigidity and therefore more precise and powerful braking. The availability of the International Standard option ensures full compatibility of Fulcrum wheels even with the most widespread braking systems that use this assembly plan.
Note:Shimano 10-speed only with 1 mm spacer, which is included.
