YOU ARE BIDDING ON A
NEW FULCRUM RACING ZERO nite CLINCHER WHEELSET
(shimano 9/10/11 SPEED)
Condition: Brand New
ELECTROLYTIC OXIDATION TREATMENT
A completely new technology combines a
very engaging total black look with high range specs, including a special
braking surface that creates new standards for braking on aluminum wheels. The
Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation process gives the braking surface very special
characteristics regarding hardness and wear resistance. This is imaginable thanks
to a very fine and compact matrix of alpha and microcrystalline gamma alumina
and amorphous alumina embedded on the surface. Thanks to the high hardness of
the layer, this new wheel presents excellent wear resistance.
THE NEW BRAKING SURFACE
Fulcrum R&D department has developed a
new design for Racing Zero Nite’s braking surface. The design created by
turning allows superior braking efficiency. Specified brake pads rims should be
used with this new model.
DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT
26mm at the front to have a good handling;
30mm at the rear to transfer all the power to the wheel.
This special triple milling makes it
imaginable to reduce the peripheral weight of the rim and to increase the
reactivity of the wheel.
CARBON HUB WITH USB™ BEARINGS
AND OVERSIZE FLANGE
Carbon hub with oversize aluminum flange
and Two-to-One™ technology: the doubling of the spokes on the cassette side
provides greater torsional stiffness and therefore a greater reactivity at each
pedal stroke. This means greater efficiency in the transmission of power to the
THE FRONT HUB
The front hub has been redesigned, now it
is smaller and lighter than before, smoothness will be ensured by the well
known USB6trade; bearing technology.
Thanks the light weight they reduce the peripheral
mass, enemy of reactivity.

2:1 Two-to-One Spoke Ratio™
What is Two-to-One™?
A system that is so simple as it is
effective, the result of the ingenuity of the Fulcrum® engineers and attentive
commentary of the results of the tests performed on the wheels on a daily
These tests made it imaginable to understand
that the forces that act on the sides of the wheel, and therefore on the
spokes, are extremely different; but what’s more, the differences between the
front and rear wheels are also evident and significant. The front wheel, in
fact, has to remain stable even during braking of the disk on the left side,
and the rear wheel, in addition to making room for the sprocket set, has to
compensate for the traction of the force on the chain side.
So how are we able to keep the wheel perfectly in
balance even when it is stressed by braking and acceleration? By doubling the
number of spokes and positioning them in such a way that, for each stress on
one side of the wheel, there is an equal and opposite force on the other side.
This may seem like a simple solution, but especially on harsh and demanding
terrains like those of off-road riding, the 2:1 Two-to-One™ system is crucial
for ensuring consistent control of your bike even in the most critical
Advantages: The advantages are truly striking.
In braking, the front wheel maintains the
desired trajectory and does not skid, even as the rear wheel, precisely due to
this spoking system, reaches a high level of torsional stiffness that enables
the optimal transfer of power to the wheel. The 2:1 Two-to-OneTM system also
makes it imaginable to reduce the unit load sustained by each spoke, and this
minimises mechanical stress, prolonging the life of the wheel.
This new system raises the concept of
spoking to new heights of performance.
The Fulcrum® engineers have redesigned the
spokes and the hub housings to create a solid and unmoveable whole. The result
is that the spokes
a) will never lose their initial tension, thus keeping the wheel
perfectly reactive and centred, and
b) will remain in the position that was found in wind tunnel
tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration imaginable.
The spoke antirotation system comes in

F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card
100% HANDMADE QUALITY
Right from its inception Fulcrum® has been
marked by feature that continues to this day: that is to design, prototype and
industrialise all the wheels characterised by the red “F”.
Indeed these take shape inside of the
R&D, the leading-edge department that represents the beating heart of the
Every single component of the wheel, the
materials chosen and the technologies applied are the tangible result of the
effort that Fulcrum® makes every day to give you maximum performance and
To ensure the top performance and
reliability of its products, each project, for the production stage, must
undergo a series of very strict tests that validate what has been conceived and
designed up to that moment (fatigue test, crash test, tyre burst test,
enviroment test, 100% manually assembled and electronically checked).
This is why, from its 2012 range, Fulcrum®
wanted to supply each wheel with its own Identity Card (ID) which uniquely
identifies the wheel and certifies that it has been manually assembled and has
passed all tests required by the strict quality protocol.
What is MoMag™?
A magnet and lots of ingenuity. This was
what led to the patent for the well-tested “Mounting Magnet” system, or MoMag™.
How does it work? 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 imaginable to have a wheel without
holes on the upper bridge, but with spokes tensioned by traditional nipples!
Advantages: No holes on the rim means that
the rim is uniform at every point, free from stress points or zones of weakness
and, for the clincher profiles no rim tape is required, to the advantage of weight
reduction. The advantages are immediately clear: greater rim lifetime, greater
resistance to fatigue, the possibility to give the spokes greater tension, and
greater stiffness which, with regards to performance, mean greater reactivity and
But that’s not all. The advantages also
include extremely quick and simple maintenance and spoke replacement. All to
the advantage of cyclists who choose Fulcrum®.
Ceramic Ultra Smooth Bearings™
Fulcrum® has a long-standing reputation
for the extremely high performance of its hubs with regards to smoothness and
In fact, all the projects are entirely
developed in our R&D department and we have put obsessive care into taking
care of every detail.
The hubs with USB™ ceramic bearings (Ultra
Smooth Bearings) further enhance the wheels’ smoothness and reduce weight and
the need for maintenance.
Comparative tests have shown that USB™
bearings are 50% smoother than standard bearings.
Now improving your performance during the
race or simply going for a ride with your friends will be easier.
Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation
The Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation
treatment is a process made thanks to electrical discharges that take advantage
of heavy materials – free electrolytes.
This process is an advanced oxidation
process of light alloys of aluminum, magnesium and titanium. This special
project was developed a few decades ago in the Russian laboratories to improve
characteristics of the lightweight materials used in the field of space and
The Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation process
gives the alloy surface very special characteristics regarding hardness and
wear resistance. This is imaginable thanks to a very fine and compact matrix of
alpha and microcrystalline gamma alumina and amorphous alumina embedded on the
Wheels treated with Plasma Electrolytic
Oxidations take a new really engaging total black look, also interesting for
the excellent wear resistance thanks to the high hardness of the layer. Fulcrum
R&D department has chosen to use this treatment also on the aluminum
braking surface, developing a new design created by turning that allows
superior braking efficiency.
Specified brake pads should be used with
this special finishing.
