Gravel, “strada bianca” and more.
Road “Plus" is an option appreciated on gravel when you decide to tackle a ride featuring complicated terrain requiring traction, support and comfort.
Less rim, more tire, more air volume: “Plus” means making the most of the benefits of the wider 27.5” wheel, for easy riding over rough terrain, maintaining speed in total safety and reducing fatigue.
Having said this, there is no need to repeat that the Racing 7 DB has been designed to be reliable and comfortable, ready for long rides following your own route.
Alongside the Road “Plus” option, the 650B size is ideal for smaller frames, meaning no compromises in the creation of a harmonious whole made up of wheels and frame.
DRSC - Directionated Rim-spoke Coupling - Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.
AFS Axle System - is the solution developed by Fulcrum® to fix the disc brake to the hub. The constraint granted by the butt area of the release mechanism, greater than in familiar standard ones, makes it possible to obtain greater structural rigidity and therefore more precise and powerful braking.
One Hub Fits All - This solution responds to the need to fit the various axis standard on the market, with speed and ease.
Different adaptors mean that the wheel is ready to mount on your bike in just a few steps.
Wide Rim Tech - Fulcrum’s R&D department, following requests from the competition circuit, has worked to create rims that are wider than before, about 4 mm or more than previously. This technical choice provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tyres, the sizes currently popular.
This ensures stability, excellent handling and superior comfort.
Asymmetric Rim - The asymmetry is designed to improve rim tension, balancing the forces from brakes and sprocket cassette.
