Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. designs wheels and components for racing bikes and distributes them in over thirty countries. The company is based at Arcugnano amid the Berici Hills in the environs of Vicenza. Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. was founded in July 2004 from an idea and from the passion for bikes of three aerospace engineers.The strong points of the young company are: the use of unique patents, continuous technological research and attractive youthful design. In its first year in business, Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. earned revenues of Eur 6 million, and exported 70% of its products abroad. Fulcrum wheels were created for road racing but the real novelty in 2008 is the Fulcrum off-road wheels, suitable for the most impervious terrains. Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. only uses ultralight materials such as aluminium, carbon fibre and polyaramide, but ensures that the wheel’s strength is never reduced. Unique worldwide are its 2:1 Two-to-oneTM system for doubling the spokes in critical points, the Dynamic BalanceTM system for obtaining a balanced rotation dynamic all the time and the MoMagTM system. Fulcrum wheels gained the trust of great champions right from the beginning and have already crossed the world championship finishing line thrice in just three years: with Tom Boonen in 2005 and with Paolo Bettini in 2006 and 2007. Also the olimpic and world champion Julien Absalon chose Fulcrum wheels and in the year 2007 he awarded the world championship.
