Fulcrum Wheels (Italy) - Press Release: Fulcrum is back!
Reactivity and resistance are the key words of Fulcrum’s return to the MTB arena. These two concepts have guided the development of the new Red Zone Carbon, a wheel that can handle challenging off-road terrain for demanding riders.
A powerhouse of technology, Red Zone Carbon is Fulcrum’s new formula for modern MTB use, with all our experience distilled in each component.
A functional and unique design is married with a new matt finish straight from the mould (DIMF), with all the specifications that a rider expects from an XC/Marathon or Down Country wheel: inner rim width of 28 mm, light and extremely smooth rolling rim in a wheel that is fully-produced in Europe and most of it in Italy.
A wheel that provides a homogenous, uniform and reliable feel and greater resistance to lateral stresses. This is achieved with a double asymmetry of 6 mm, which alternates at every spoke with one of 3.5 mm.
The design of the rim has been studied to maximise the balance, lateral stiffness and vertical absorption.
Key characteristics for a high-level MTB wheel, but which are not always compatible with each other.
The overall architecture of the Red Zone carbon has been designed to provide a perfect ride feel and reliability on the most difficult terrains.
