Bikepacking? Bike racing without the support of cars? Being free from the confines of paved roads? Strade Bianche, travelling, unpaved roads and new horizons...
There are many ways of interpreting this new trend, which is now not just being followed by a few, but for many it represents a new way of experiencing cycling. For some, it is a new way to put themselves to the test, for others it is an alternative choice and a new opportunity.
B-Road, or "Gravel", is all of this, and the Rapid Red 5 DB has been designed and manufactured by Fulcrum to do just that.
In the development of the Rapid Red 5 DB, Fulcrum's R&D department has used all the experience and technical solutions developed for the wheels of road bikes and has redesigned them for tracks beyond the asphalt.
Strade bianche, dirt and gravel roads require a wide channel, 23 mm for this wheel, with low and extremely resistant 24 mm rims to absorb shocks and guarantee excellent riding comfort regardless of the vibrations.
The tread pattern allows the mounting of tyres between 30 and 46 mm Tubeless Ready, with many adjustment possibilities according to the distance to be covered. The 24 straight-head spokes, supported by a sturdy aluminium hub, guarantee the ideal support for uninterconnected terrains as well as the slightly increased weight of a wheel ready for travel.
Prepare for your next journey: Check your equipment, prepare the lights and take all the time you need. Rapid Red 5 DB is your loyal companion - comfortable, reliable, light and precise.
That means absolute freedom.
