Description

The Racing 7 is an entry level wheel with a race-ready soul. The same Fulcrum®quality and performance as the rest of the line with advanced characteristics such as an oversized flange and Spoke Dynamic Balance technology.

Fulcrum engineers have pushed the quality of this wheel even further incorporating an asymmetric rear rim that increases performance in terms of lateral and torsional rigidity as well as reactivity.

New technological advancements are added with no compromise in weight savings as the Racing 7 is nearly 90 grams lighter than its predecessor. Improved performance with less weight makes for an excellent choice for your next ride.

The new rim is wider than before, 17C.

Why a 17C larger rim?

  • Rim’;s wider section lets the tire have a greater contact area with the ground ;
  • The contact-area between tire and asphalt increases considering the same tire – width. For example, a 23mm tire on a 17C rim has a contact section similar to a 24mm tire: the smallest tire weights less but assure a grip really similar to the wider size. ;
  • Increased lateral stiffness thanks the greater section of the rim, that increases the moment of lateral inertia ;
  • Every rim’;s sections’; thickness have been studied and calibrated to maintain the weight stable despite the greater section. This means a complete optimization of the structure. ;

Benefits Of The New Racing 7 LG

  • Better comfort ;
  • Better grip ;
  • Less tire consumption ;
DIFFERENTIATED RIM HEIGHT 24mm at the front to provide optimal handling 27.5 at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel. MACHINED BRAKING SURFACES allow for safe, powerful and adaptable braking in all weather conditions. RIM WITH ORIENTED DRILLING OF SPOKE SEAT makes it possible to orient the spokes and increase the tensions. STEEL SPOKES WITH 2MM CROSS-SECTION provide high levels of tension and stiffness. SUPERIOR QUALITY STEEL BALLS ON SEALED CYLINDRICAL BEARINGS reduce friction and ensure consistent performance over time. OVERSIZED FLANGE ON THE DRIVE SIDE provides greater torsional stiffness, increases reactivity at each change in rhythm of the pedal stroke.
