Fulcrum Wind 40C - C17 Carbon Wheelset - Clincher

Fulcrum Wind 40C - C17 Carbon Wheelset - Clincher

Allround as the leitmotiv, performance as an ideal definition for Wind 40C

A set of racing wheels designed for everyday rides, on all roads, whether for training or a Gran Fondo with the group you usually go out with.

Its 40 mm full carbon unidirectional profile will be able to prove itself, providing what is needed: aerodynamic and stable in long stretches on the flat, light and agile in making the rhythm uphill, decisive and manageable in the most technical descents. The balance and harmony between your racing bike and Wind 40C will be immediate: you put them on and begin to discover a new level of performance. To achieve this objective, our R&D department combined several of the most popular technologies available: the full carbon, unidirectional rim is built without holes for passage of the nipples, Mo-Mag™ therefore, ensuring maximum stiffness and reliability.

It promises braking like never before thanks to the AC3™ laser treatment on the braking track: laser processing allows the traces of resin to be eliminated from the surface in contact with the pads with a precision never seen before, improving behavior in all conditions and up to 30% in the most complicated situations, in the rain.

To transfer all the power in acceleration there is the oversize flange on the cassette side, with aero spokes arranged according to the Two-to-one™ scheme. that's Wind 40: technology, performance and substance, but in the end it will be able to completely change the character of your racing bike.


The Anti-Rotation System™ is designed to make sure that spokes will never lose their initial tension and remain in the position that have been studied in the wind tunnel tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration possible.

2:1 Two-to-On™: Doubling the spokes in the critical zones avoids slackening of the spokes and loss of rim tension.

Plasma Freehub: The Plasma treatment makes the aluminium especially hard and resistant to surface abrasion and wear.

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

ALL CONDITIONS CARBON CONTROL (AC3)™ will enable surprising braking performance, especially in difficult conditions, when improvements become the base for a different way of cycling.
The Fulcrum R&D division has chosen to change its approach to braking track production, going from a mechanical process to one that uses micro laser incisions on the surface to eliminate resins and perfect roughness.
In this way, braking directly exploits the brake pad’s contact on the fiber, improving grip and dissipation of water and moisture from the surface, allowing it to work immediately in ideal conditions and give better results.
Confidence and power grow, together with excellent modularity. Lab tests have shown that this greater force enables a 6% improvement in braking power in dry conditions compared to previously. In the wet, the difference is amazing: here there is a 43% increase, bringing braking distance close to those in dry conditions.
