About Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Disc Clincher AFS – F+R QR
Fulcrum brings performance and a great aesthetic to a competitive price point with the Fulcrum Racing 5 LG DB Clincher wheelset.
The Fulcrum Racing 5 LG is the evolution of this extremely popular wheelset, known for its affordability and its performance as a 'race-ready' wheel. The 21-spoke design, along with the asymmetric rear rim are now matched with a 17C profile to offer notable performance such as
lateral and torsional rigidity plus increased responsiveness, comfort and handling.
The addition of disc brakes allows for greater stopping power, with two hub options available – 6-bolt and Axial Fixing System (AFS). The performance attributes of the regular Fulcrum Racing 5 LG Clincher are now complemented by a disc brake system, which increases braking power potential and allows for a 'full black' look where the regular rim braking surface would be.
The wider section 17C rim allow the tyre to handle greater contact area with the ground
The contact area between tyre and asphalt increases considering the same tyre width. For example, a 23mm tyre on a 17C rim has a contact section similar to a 24mm tyre: the smaller tyre weighs less but the wider rim ensures that grip is very similar to that of the wider-sized tyre.
Increased lateral stiffness thanks to the wider rim section – this present day of lateral inertia the wider rim is in a position to remain more stable as energy is transferred.
The thicknesses of the rim section have been analysed and calibrated to handle stability despite being larger than normal. This means a complete optimization of the structure.
Lower tyre wear
Technologies – Axial Fixing System (AFS)
The Axial Fixing System™ 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 conceivable to obtain greater structural rigidity and due to this fact more precise and powerful braking. The availability of the International Standard option ensures full compatibility of Fulcrum wheels even with the most widespread braking systems that use this assembly plan.
