Product Details

The already best-in-class Racing 5 wheelset goes from high to higher performance thanks to its new design.  The same qualities that have made the Racing 5 such a popular wheelset in the past combine new elements in order to make an affordable but also race ready wheel.

  • New design is lighter and stiffer than the previous version
  • Highly durable hubs with Shimano/Sram freehub body – 9, 10 and 11-speed compatible
  • Lightweight at only 1650g per pair
  • Weight limit: 109kg (cyclist)
  • Includes: Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres & Continental Race 28 tubes

The Racing 5 wheelset features differentiated rim heights with 24mm at the front to provide optimal handling and 27.5mm at the rear for transmitting all your power to the wheel. The asymmetric rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side, giving better symmetry to an asymmetric component. Increased efficiency and reactivity are sure to be noted. Fulcrum have used 2 oversized spokes to improve rim rotational balance, this system is called Dynamic Balance and it transforms the ride quality. On the rear wheel a 2:1 spoke ratio adds double the amount of drive-side spokes, improving handling and power delivery. If you are after a great value wheelset that is suitable for everyday use then the updated Fulcrum Racing 5 is the perfect choice!
