About Fulcrum Racing 5 LG CX Cyclocross Clincher Wheelset
The specific cyclocross contruction guarantees Fulcrum quality performance despite the mud and sand often found in cross courses in addition to a completely new and revolutionary wheel design which provides an even greater performance.
F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card
Fulcrum supplies 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. The F.I.C. ensures that you’ve bought a genuine Fulcrum product.
Each Racing 5 CX 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.
Why a 17C larger rim?
Rim’s wider section lets the tire have a greater contact area with the ground
The contact-area between tire and asphalt increases considering the same tire – width. For example, a 23mm tire on a 17C rim has a contact section very similar to a 24mm tire: the smallest tire weights less but assure a grip actually very similar to the wider size.
Increased lateral stiffness thanks the greater section of the rim, that increases the moment of lateral inertia
Every rim’s sections’ thickness have been studied and calibrated to handle the weight stable despite the greater section. This means a complete optimization of the structure.
