Fulcrum unveils Racing 5 and Racing 7

Fulcrum’s 2010 Road range is beginning to take shape, and it’s clear that for the upcoming year as well, Fulcrum has held nothing back in working to further improve every model.

RACING 5
Weight: 1760 g

Racing 5 was already a wheel with great performance, but for 2010 Fulcrum wanted to further enhance its features, increasing the safety and comfort. The new rim groove is now 0.5mm deeper, which makes it possible to have more space to house the inner tube with the consequence of less risk of pinch flats along with greater speed and ease in fitting the tire.

Racing 5 will also have brand new graphics for 2010 inspired by the concept of high speed. Even from a standstill, Racing 5 wheels communicate speed and performance.
