This versatile Fulcrum wheelset combines the Wind 40 DB rim on the front wheel with the Wind 50 DB rim on the rear wheel.
In describing a racing bike wheel like Wind 55 DB, you start with aerodynamics: it is time to try out on your bike how a finished and optimized profile down to the finest detail is able to make the difference.
It is natural to point out that the design of the Wind 40 DB 40mm rim is the direct descendant of the 55 profile: all the solutions developed for the higher profile have been included here, in a less specialized version.
A height of 40 mm at the front wheel ensures a light rim, while the rear wheel is much more aerodynamic at 55 mm. Created by the superposition of wide, modern unidirectional layers, with a pronounced profile (8 mm radius): innovative shapes, designed to blend with the tire in a single piece capable of eliminating turbulence, avoiding interrupting the flow of air that meets the wheel during the race.
Completing this package with the 2-Way Fit™ (Tubeless Ready), 19-mm internal channel, designed to offer the best support for tubeless tires and designed to best match the 25 and 28 mm tire widths with the wide rim profile. Aluminium hubs, designed at the CNC, which support 24 "straight pull" spokes, guaranteeing maximum overall rigidity, both in acceleration and when braking, without influences due to the asymmetric nature of the forces coming from the disc and cassette. Thanks to the Mo-Mag™ technology, no conversion will be necessary, the wheel is ready for use even without an inner tube.
Wind DB is certainly the multi-purpose choice, with a strong focus on aerodynamics, to be fast, very fast, uphill, fast, very fast, on the flat, and just as much so downhill.
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.
Fulcrum has developed the 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 tire.
The Axial Fixing System™ (AFS) 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.
MoMag™ - The nipples, once inserted inside the rim via the valve hole, are "guided" to the point of connection with the spoke by means of the magnet. This simple but ingenious system makes it possible to have wheels without holes on the upper bridge, but with spokes tensioned by traditional nipples!
