AC3™ - ALL CONDITIONS CARBON CONTROL

AC3™ - ALL CONDITIONS CARBON CONTROL

For years, the issue of braking on carbon rims has been studied and technically updated, in accordance with progress made in research into materials and available finishing processes.

AC3™ is a further step forward in this direction and it will enable surprising braking performance, especially in difficult conditions, when improvements become the base for a different way of cycling.

The Fulcrum R&D division has chosen to change its approach to braking track production, going from a mechanical process to one that uses micro laser incisions on the surface to eliminate resins and perfect roughness.

In this way, braking directly exploits the brake pad’s contact on the fiber, improving grip and dissipation of water and moisture from the surface, allowing it to work immediately in ideal conditions and give better results.

Confidence and power grow, together with excellent modularity. Lab tests have shown that this greater force enables a 6% improvement in braking power in dry conditions compared to previously. In the wet, the difference is amazing: here there is a 43% increase, bringing braking distance close to those in dry conditions.

The cyclist can concentrate totally on choosing the best line, with no slip-ups, each hairpin a work of art.
