When you're planning to leave the tarmac behind for a while, the "Road Plus" is an option for serious consideration.
Fulcrum's Rapid Red 5 DB 650B wheels enable you to benefit from all the advantages of bigger tyres on your usual frame; inspired by mountain bike versions, these offer greater air volume, with perfect knobs for more technical dirt tracks.
The "Road Plus" is the epitome of all of this: The 27.5" diameter combined with the specially-designed tyre - even wider, at 40 to 60 mm - keeps the total wheel diameter to 28", despite the thicker tyre.
With a greater volume of air and better traction, they offer greater comfort and safety even when tackling really challenging sections, so you can push the boundaries even further.
These tyres naturally complement the features of the Rapid Red 5 DB 650B wheels, which start from a tubeless ready inner channel with a width of 23 mm coupled with a low, ultra-resistant 24 mm rim, the same as its "big" sister, along with the 24 straight-head spokes supported by a solid aluminium hub - ideal for taking on even the most challenging adventures with ease.
Long distances, dirt and dust are no match for the Rapid Red 5 DB 650B, a wheel created for big trips which comes into its own when the going gets tough.
Plan your route and set your mind on your next goal - your Rapid Red 5 DB 650B wheels will be your faithful companion, comfortable and reliable, light and precise.
This, fundamentally, means freedom.
F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card - 100% Handmade Quality - Right from its inception Fulcrum® has been marked by feature that continues to this day: that is to design, prototype and industrialise all the wheels characterised by the red “F”.
Indeed these take shape inside of the R&D, the leading-edge department that represents the beating heart of the Italian company.
Every single component of the wheel, the materials chosen and the technologies applied are the tangible result of the effort that Fulcrum® makes every day to give you maximum performance and reliability.
Traceability - A guarantee of quality
The keyword for our products is: traceable.
If you find a little label attached to any Fulcrum® product, do not remove it. It will provide you a guarantee in case of an ascertained defectiveness of a production batch, and so the component needed or wheel will be traceable.
All this because, devoted to its mission, Fulcrum demands the absolute perfection and safety for its customers.
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.
