The choice of Elia Viviani of Team Cofidis, this road bike wheelset features two high-quality full carbon rims with a "Twill" carbon fibre finish and a 55mm rim height, which makes it more than ready for the demands of modern road cycling. Its carbon rim build also delivers increased strength, improved rolling resistance and an overall lower weight on your ride, so you can benefit from easier climbing and faster sprinting when on the flat.
Fulcrum has kitted out this wheelset with its renowned CULT bearings, which allow for further weight savings and achieve unequalled levels of rolling resistance by up to nine times compared to traditional solutions, with a saving of up to 3.5 watts per pedal stroke. Along with the considerable improvement in terms of mechanical performance, this model is also equipped with an updated carbon front hub and an aluminium rear hub, both with an oversized aluminium flange. This means that riders will enjoy smoother, faster and more dependable rolling performance, wherever their ride takes them.
Featuring many of Fulcrum's finest technologies, this version is well-equipped for every mile of road thanks to 2-Way Fit technology. This technology allows riders to choose whether they run the wheelset as tubeless or as a standard clincher. By running tubeless, riders will enjoy performance advantages such as lower rolling resistance, greater stability and fewer chances of punctures or flats. This flexibility also means that you can personally test which of the solutions works best for you, as some riders prefer to use the clincher set-up for training and a tubeless setup for racing. One final highlight is the Fulcrum Speed 55 Comptz Disc Brake Carbon Wheelset has a 19mm internal rim width, which gives you additional freedom in terms of the tyres that can be fitted.
