Fulcrum Racing 3 Clincher Wheelset $0.00
You might have a difficult time trying to find an affordable wheelset that balances aerodynamics, lightness, and durability as well as the Fulcrum Racing 3 Clincher Wheelset. Just a tad heavier than the Fulcrum Racing 1 wheels, you can train on these day-in and day-out, and then line up at the starting line with them feeling confident that they won't hold you back.
The burnished stainless steel spokes on the Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels are anchored to an aluminum hub shell that spins on Fulcrum's smooth-running stainless bearings around an aluminum axle. The Racing 3 uses an anti-rotation attachment system to keep the oval aero spokes slicing cleanly through the wind.
You'll notice that there are no spoke holes drilled into the interior of the rim; Fulcrum uses their Mounting Magnet system to guide each spoke nipple into its slot. With no spoke holes, there's no need for rim tape, and the rim is also stiffer and has greater resistance to fatigue. On the outside, both rims have been machined between the spoke holes to reduce any extra weight and feature Fulcrum's Dynamic Balance System. On the Racing 3s, this means that it lacks the machining near the valve stem hole. The tiny mass of remaining aluminum, acts to balance the weight of the opposing rim joint. The front wheel has 16 radially laced spokes, and the rear has 21 spokes using Fulcrum's Two-to-One pattern. This puts seven radial spokes on the non-drive side, and 14 tangentially laced spokes anchored to the oversized drive side flange on the rear hub. The Two-to-One pattern ensures a greater transfer of your power input and a better balance of tension in the wheel for greater trueness and durability.
The Fulcrum Racing 3 Clincher Wheelset comes with a new quick release skewer that is lighter than previous iterations while providing greater clamping force and more security. It is available with either Campy or Shimano/SRAM compatible freehub bodies.
