Red Zone Carbon

Red Zone Carbon

Reactivity and resistance are the key words of Fulcrum’s return to the MTB arena. These two concepts have guided the development of the new Red Zone Carbon, a wheel that can handle challenging off-road terrain for demanding riders.

Red Zone Carbon is the result of a long research and development process that has involved all the elements of the wheel, both individually (rims, hubs and spokes) and, most importantly, as a whole, to create a wheel system that is able to meet the demands of high level bikers. Lightness and reactivity on one hand, for maximum performance uphill, and a high level of vertical absorption and resistance on the other, for the peace of mind of riders who want to abandon themselves to the adrenaline of heading downhill with confidence.  

A powerhouse of technology, Red Zone Carbon is Fulcrum’s new formula for modern MTB use, with all our experience distilled in each component. 
A functional and unique design is married with a new matt finish straight from the mould (DIMF), with all the specifications that a rider expects from an XC/Marathon or Down Country wheel: inner rim width of 28 mm, light and extremely smooth rolling rim in a wheel that is fully-produced in Europe and most of it in Italy.
