The advantage is in the rim: no holes and therefore no rim tape, to the benefit of both stiffness and weight. The Racing 3 continues to represent the most reliable “travelling companion” for training rides and the “ideal partner” for any type of race.
Racing 3 with Shimano Inc. FW body is compatible with 10 and 11 speed sprockets.
The Racing 3 wheel is entirely hand-assembled by a specialised Fulcrum® technician and is checked in every tiny detail with electronic instrumentation. This ensures maximum performance and reliability for all Fulcrum® wheels.
This machining makes it possible to reduce the peripheral weight of the rim and makes the wheel extremely reactive.
DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT
26mm at the front for optimal manoeuvrability; 30mm at the back to transfer all the power to the wheel.
DOUBLE-BUTTED STEEL SPOKES WITH AERO PROFILE
enable maximum aerodynamic penetration.
SPOKE ANTI-ROTATION SYSTEM
keeps the spokes consistently in the position of maximum aerodynamic penetration.
OVERSIZED HUB BODY IN ALUMINIUM
provides a high degree of lateral stiffness and reduces the weight to a minimum.
TOP QUALITY STEEL BALLS WITH CUP-AND-CONE BEARINGS
reduces friction and provides top performance. The cup-and-cone system makes it easy to adjust the bearings.
reduces the overall weight of the wheel.
NEW OVERSIZE FLANGE
9% more torsional stiffness. Greater reactivity to each change in pedalling tempo and more efficient power transmission to the wheel
New, completely redesigned and lighter wheel block Steel spine and eccentric, lever with drill lightening and aluminum die. 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.
