4/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

The 2 mm stainless steel spokes feature the characteristic Fulcrum 2:1 Two-to-One spoke ratio, which ensures optimal torque transmission, better distribution of the spoke tension, and an excellent response to disc braking. The oversize hubs in aluminium are equipped with double seal industrial bearings to ensure long-lasting performance and minimal maintenance. Braking is provided by a disc brake system, and any product compatible with the ISO six-bolt system can be used.

Strengths:    Smooth rolling, they Kept strigth throw this time, Kind of ligth, very good looking, the "click" sound. The desing (2:1 ratio)

Weaknesses:    The nipples quality is weak. Kind of heavy. An odd sound occurs when the rear get an small bump, like somethig hits the spokes.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels are a very goood ones, GOOG LOOKING and everyone says "What are those wheels? Are Fulcrum? how did you get 'em?" (Brand without dealer in my country).
They're still heavy but for the price and quality, no problem at all.
Im my first ride, a young (irresponsable boy) crashed the rear wheel in the left side of the axle, so, it had to be trued, and that was the nipples damages. (Still has a litle horse on it).
Manufacturer said they're for trinning but I think you can race with them. The rider's weigth? Rigth now I'm 180 pounds and they work fine. You pay for an exclusive very good brand. If you have lot of buks, get the Red Metal 1 or carbon.
