2-Way Fit™ profile for tubeless and clincher.
Tubeless technology was first used by the auto industry , then by motorcycles and now has reached the cycling industry. After its debut with mountain bikes the moment has come to “put it on the road”, and that’s what we propose to do.
We have developed our 2-Way Fit™ technology to ensure the perfect compatibility of our tubeless rims with normal clincher types and tubes. 2-Way Fit™road bike wheels are perfectly multipurpose for tackling every situation. Thanks to a special impression in the valve area, the tubes are fitted with the maximum precision while keeping the tube perfectly stable inside the tyre.
Housing the valve for tubeless tyres is also risk-free, with the unquestionable advantage that there are never any air infiltrations caused by non-ideal positioning when fitting.
It shall be the end user’s sole and full responsibility to choose - on a case by case basis – an adequate and correct rim-tire-pressure combination, as well as to conduct all verifications neces-sary to ascertain the correctness and safety of such combination.
Without prejudice to the above, and in order to ensure optimum rolling resistance, grip and, most importantly, safety, we recommend that the end user, in making his choice, also takes into consideration the recommended combinations of hooked rim width, tire width and tire pressure indicated in the chart set forth below.
Due to safety reasons, follow the information of the tire manufacturer regarding minimum and maximum rim width to be used but always ensure that the combination is listed as possible in this table.

The advantages are indisputable: our tests have highlighted an unique increase in smoothness. Because there is no tube, the friction caused by rubbing against the tyre is eliminated, while the perfect adherence of the tyre to the rim prevents the dispersion of energy.
Tubeless tyres do not suffer from sudden deflation when punctured which is a great advantage in safety terms. There is also no risk of snake bites as there is no tube to get injured. What if a tubeless tyre gets punctured? There’s nothing to be afraid of... With the Fulcrum® 2-Way Fit™ you can remove the tubeless valve and fit in a standard clincher tire that will let you ride back home.
