A set of wheels with no boundaries, so as not to set limits, both uphill and downhill.

Red Metal 5 was conceived with versatility in mind: light and solid, built with attention to materials and finishes. The technical data, however, is not everything: excursions to new destinations will better define the soul of this specific trail riding wheel.

Reliability is a focal point, driving precision makes the difference: the 27 mm wide channel offers an ideal support base when cornering and allows the shoulder of the tire to attack the ground without the slightest dispersion.

The 28-spoke straight-head construction also ensures solidity and reactivity in the presence of any obstacle. With an mtb-trail wheel like this, there will be no limits to exploring new boundaries, because it will always be ready, a trusted companion.


AFS Axle System - The Axial Fixing 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.

2Way - Fit Ready (MTB) - This procedure transforms Red Zone 500-700 and Red Fire 500 wheels (designed to be used with an inner tube) into Tubeless Ready wheels (i.e. without the use of an inner tube but with the compulsory use of a sealant liquid).

Microspline Freehub - They understand technical evolution as painstaking attention to product development, and it’s one of the cornerstones of all projects that come out of our R&D Department.

The Fulcrum spirit entails a constant effort to pick up and seize on new trends and keep pace with the most advanced technologies available.
