FULCRUM REVEALS ITS OFFROAD RANGE
On the first day of the International Cycle Show in Taipei, Fulcrum® reveals its long-awaited range of Offroad wheels for Cross Country and All Mountain/Enduro.
There are five models, one for v-brakes and four for disc brakes. In order these are: Red Metal Zero V-brake, Red Metal Zero Disc, Red Metal 1 Disc, Red Metal 3 Disc and Red Metal 5 Disc.
Fulcrum® has used various technical solutions it had developed for its road wheels, adapting them to offroad use, such as the Two-to-One™ Spoke Ratio and MoMag™ lacing (see Fulcrum® Technologies), together with other ad hoc solutions like AFS disc brake mounting.
Red Metal Zero are the top of the Fulcrum® Offroad range. One model for v-brakes and one for disc brakes for racing. No coincidence then that the Red Metal Zero Disc debuted a few weeks ago as the official wheel for the Olympic and current world champion Julien Absalon and the Cross Country Orbea Team.
Red Metal 1 are high-range wheels for those who put their MTB truly to the test with regular particularly intense sessions. The ideal equilibrium between weight and performance. Available only in a disc-brake version, they are UST compatible and compatible with the main drivetrains on the market.
Red Metal 3 are medium-range wheels designed for daily use. Main features are their solidity and robustness, while still offering excellent performance. Available only in a disc-brake version, they are UST compatible and compatible with the main drivetrains on the market.
Red Metal 5 are the only entry-level wheels in the Fulcrum® Offroad range and offer everyone a chance to improve the performance of their bike thanks to Fulcrum® innovations. Two-to-One™ Spoke Ratio, disc brakes 20 mm oversize axles. Compatible with the main drivetrains on the market.
All the Fulcrum® Offroad models will be available from October.
