Enduro has clear rules: You need to be able to count on solid yet manoeuvrable material, be ready for the climbs, but above all live for the descents: descending at full speed on varied and technical terrain. It’s an extremely selective discipline in which every mechanical part is tested hard over a long period of time. For such a tough application, Fulcrum's R&D department decided to create a lower and wider wheel for Trail-Enduro: This creates a stable, safe and fast contact surface. The 27C rim bed uses a wide base to keep the tyre in shape even in the worst bends, while the 28-spoke straight head wheel structure provides excellent support and makes the wheel solid and responsive.
AFS Axle System
The Axial Fixing System has been developed by Fulcrum to fix the disc brake to the hub. The limitation caused by the impact area of the release mechanism, which is greater than that of the known mechanism, makes it possible to achieve greater structural rigidity and thus more precise and powerful braking.
Wide Rim Tech
The Fulcrum R&D department worked according to the wishes of the racing teams to create rims with a larger width than in the past, starting at about 4 mm more than the previous ones. This technical choice makes it possible to offer the ideal support base for 25/28 mm tyres, the sizes preferred today. In this way, stability, optimum handling and high comfort are guaranteed.
One hub fits all
A solution that meets the need to quickly and easily adapt to the various axle standards on the market.
Different adapters make it possible in just a few steps for the wheel to be ready for mounting on your own bike.
2Way - Fit Ready (MTB)
This procedure allows the Red Zone 500-700 and Red Fire 500 wheels, designed for use with air chambers, to be converted to tubeless ready wheels, i.e. without air chambers and with the mandatory use of a tyre sealant. In order to ensure correct conversion of the wheels, it’s essential to follow the procedure below using the components listed below:
Fulcrum Rubber Ring:
Width 30 mm / 29 '' for Red Zone Series
Width 35 mm / 27.5'' for Red Fire 500
Effetto Mariposa (Butterfly Effect): Coffee latex
