FULCRUM SPEED 40 CLINCHER
Race winning performance without the need of a team car
While all the Fulcrum wheel lineup from top to bottom represents a cornucopia of advanced wheelwork technology, most often speaking those technologies derive from the wheelsets produced first for the brand’s sponsored athletes and teams who compete at the World Tour level. This being said, we aren’t all lucky enough to ride with a team car a tour service day in and day out but most of us still would appreciate the same performance and design characteristics that our heroes in the Giro or Tour have at their disposal. With this in mind the Fulcrum engineers set out to develop the up to date addition to the Fulcrum SPEED family wheel line-up with a clincher specific rim, thus providing us an opportunity to ride like the pros but to also be self-sufficient will have to a flat spoil our ride.
The 40 mm rim profile is made the use of the very same sophisticated Fulcrum carbon fiber technologies such as the 3k finish in addition to the specially developed HTG resin utilized in the SPEED 40T wheels found underneath pro riders’ bikes. Particular attention used to be paid towards developing a braking surface that performed as flawlessly as the tubular 40T version whilst remaining as surefooted, without flex and capable of dissipating heat in an efficient manner despite the design geared towards a completely different rim/tire interface. Couple the advanced carbon fiber and resin used for the SPEED 40 clincher with the universally lauded 3Diamant braking surface and the result is a rim that lasts so long as the rider and offers a braking performance without rival as well.
