The 75 DB model completes the Wind range. This high profile wheel is the best expression of all the aerodynamic research and development carried out by Fulcrum engineers. The ultra-aero profile makes it the ideal wheel for time trials, triathlons and all situations where aerodynamics make the difference and you’re pedalling at high speeds.
The challenge of the project was focused on achieving high air penetration and speed numbers, without compromising the wheel’s stability and handling, despite the height of the profile. This was achieved with thorough wind tunnel testing, that resulted in a new profile of the unidirectional carbon rim, whose internal and external dimensions are in line with current trends: rim width 27 mm and channel width 19 mm.
The rim is Fulcrum 2-way fit, tubeless from the outset. It doesn’t need any tape for sealing, simplifying and lightening the tyre-rim pairing, thanks to the rim machining with Mo-Mag technology. The rim is also stiffer and more resistant without holes. The spokes are double butted, rounded and straight pull (the best aerodynamic shape) and the nipples are in aluminium.
As far as the internals are concerned, Fulcrum have chosen sealed cartridge bearings housed in aluminium hubs, for both the front and rear wheel.
Two extremely important aspects for the riders are the exceptional price/performance ratio, that makes this fast wheel more accessible compared to the speed range, and the possibility of buying only the rear wheel.
The wind 75 are the best choice for those looking for maximum speed and an access point to Fulcrum’s carbon range. This beautifully designed wheelset, which will make your bike unique, are a precious ally when every second counts
