Why We Like The Rapid Red 3 Wheelset
We love the weekends for our long rides, and sometimes those rides involve a bit of off-road exploration. Throw in some quiet, paved roads and you've got yourself a perfect day. Fulcrum gets that need for occasional unpaved fun. They're big on drop bar bikes and wider tires, and they know how to design a wheelset that's perfectly suited for mixed terrain. And, yes, we're talking about the Rapid Red 3 Wheelset.
This wheelset is optimized for current frames designed around larger wheels with a 24mm internal rim width. A 2-Way Fit Ready system lets you run the Rapid Red 3 Wheelset with the classic clincher and inner tube or tubeless. The former ensures compatibility with the widest range of tires on the market. The 2:1 spoke ratio technology system allows a long life for the Rapid Red 3 due to minimized mechanical stress.
The Rapid Red 3 Wheelset is constructed with CNC machined aluminum, which cuts on cost and grams. While being lightweight, this wheelset is also durable with wide rims that ensure stability, superior handling, and comfort. More stable support with a streamlined shape increases aerodynamics while minimizing friction in turn.
