Fulcrum 2012 Off-Road Preview
Fulcrum unveils the new family of clincher wheels: Red Power XL, Red Power SL & Red Power.

The Fulcrum family of clincher wheels has changed and now has a new name: Red Power.

Red Power is the name of a project designed to raise the bar on performance and reliability of a type of wheel that still has a large following in the world of off-road enthusiasts: wheels for clincher tires. The engineers of the Fulcrum R&D department have developed new and highly evolved production processes and innovative technical solutions that made it possible to create a family of wheels that stands out not only for the breadth of the offer in terms of both performance and price levels, but most of all for a standard of quality that rises far above the market benchmark.

Three models are available, each with a different performance and price level: the top of the line Red Power XL, with decidedly more racing features, the Red Power SL, competition wheels also suitable for training, and the Red Power, the entry level wheelset of the Fulcrum Off-Road range.

All the wheels of the Red Power family have been designed to be the most reactive, performing, and solid in their market segment, and to enthuse the most demanding and expert riders.

The Red Power XL represents the head of the family of Red Power wheels.

As is the Fulcrum tradition, for each new product the performance features have been further improved: the new milled rim of the Red Power XL is in a category by itself and its special machining not only increases the values of lateral stiffness and reactivity but also takes the wheel to a record low weight of 1735g.

Thanks to the straight pull spokes and the oversize hub, this wheel is extremely rigid and reactive, enabling a quick and precise response on any type of course.

The exclusive 2:1 Two-to-One technology in which the number of spokes on the cassette side is doubled with respect to the opposite side, keeps the spoke tensions in balance at the moment in which the rider transfers power to the wheel. The nipples feature a self-locking system that maintains the correct tension of the spokes indefinitely, and without the need for servicing.

The superior quality sealed industrial bearings, provide incredible smoothness that remains unaltered over time, and the 20mm aluminum axle guarantees a considerable reduction in weight along with a high level of stiffness, all to the advantage of steering precision.

The exclusive 5-axis hub machining system makes it possible to create a spoke seal perfectly, which provides a precise line of spoke tensioning. With this solution, the tension vales are the same at every point of the spoke, thus reducing stress on the rim and on the spokes and keeping the wheel balanced.

The new Red Power XL wheels include the QR/15mm thru-axle adapter kit for the front wheel, which makes it possible to use the same wheel with both standard front forks and with 15mm thru-axle, as well as the Syntace X-12 135/142mm adapter kit for the rear wheel, which makes it possible to widen the O.L.D. of the rear wheel 12mm thru-axle from 135mm to 142mm.

Sturdy, strong, and seductive.

The Red Power SL wheels for clincher are the ideal choice for everyday use and training, without foregoing performance. The geometry of the spokes and hub make the Red Power SL extremely reactive and offer high performance, and the new graphics make them even more aggressive…just like the price!

The class 19 lightened rim allows you to confront and off-road course and to fit tires from 28 to 47mm in width.

The entry level “fat wheel”.

Red Power wheels with clincher rim allow anyone and everyone to join the Off-Road world and experience for themselves the quality and reliability of Fulcrum wheels.

Indestructible and ready for any adventure, Red Power is the ideal companion for off-road ascents and descents, always in total safety.

The exclusive 2:1 Two-to-One™ technology, in which the number of spokes on the cassette side is doubled with respect to the opposite side, keeps the spoke tensions in balance at the moment in which the rider transfers power to the wheel. The nipples feature a self-locking system that maintains the correct tension of the spokes over time, without the need for servicing.

The oversize aluminium hub body provides a high level of lateral stiffness and excellent torque transmission. The 20mm hub axle ensures a high degree of stiffness and improves manoeuvring precision. The sealed industrial bearings are maintenance-free and ensure long-lasting
performance.

The new Red Power wheels are available in two versions for the front: QR and 15mm thru-axle.

For the 15mm thru-axle version, the QR/15mm thru-axle adapter kit is available as an optional, making it possible to transform the wheel from 15 mm thru-axle to conventional QR.
