Fulcrum Racing Zero /Racing Zero Nite

 

FULCRUM RACING ZERO

 

 

 

racingzero

The gold standard among high-level aluminum road bike wheels.
With the unmistakable character that everybody knows well, the absolute ability to transmit your energy on the asphalt, its extreme riding precision.
Unrivaled in the peloton: extraordinary performance and high impact aesthetics make these road bike wheel the point of reference for cyclists.
Race after race, Zero wheels have become synonymous with excellence, quality, performance, reliability… and victory!

 

THE RIM

This special triple milling makes it possible to reduce the peripheral weight of these road bike rims and to increase the reactivity of the wheels.
Differentiated rim height: 26mm at the front to have a good handling; 30mm at the rear to transfer all the power to the wheel.

HUBS

The front hub has been redesigned, the new model is smaller and so lighter.
Smoothness is ensured by the famous USB™ ceramic bearings. The cap and cone technology maintains the most efficient angle of contact between the bearings and bearing seat, increasing the smoothness and durability.
The front carbon hub and oversize aluminum rear flange provide an innovative mix that provides excellent torsional rigidity and consequently a greater reactivity.
Greater reactivity to each change in pedaling time and more efficient power transmission to the wheel.

SPOKES AND NIPPLES

Aluminum spokes: a precise choice to ensure optimal rigidity and a special attention to aerodynamics.
Aluminum nipples: thanks to the light weight they reduce the peripheral mass, enemy of reactivity.

2 WAY FIT SYSTEM

The advantages are indisputable: our tests have highlighted an unique increase in smoothness.
There is no tube, the friction caused by rubbing against the tyre is eliminated, while the perfect adherence of the tyre to the road bike rims prevent the dispersion of energy. There is also no risk of snake bites as there is no tube to rupture. What if a tubeless tyre gets punctured?
With Fulcrum 2-Way Fit™ you can remove the tubeless valve and fit in a standard clincher tire that will let you ride back home.

Truly and outstanding set of wheels from Fulcrum. Great looks, outstanding performance and a bucket full of technology all make for a wheelset that delivers top-end performance regardless of weather. If you are looking for a set of non-aero wheels that perform like aero wheels, consider these.

PLASMA TREATMENT
A completely new technology combines a very engaging total black look with high range specs, including a special braking surface that creates new standards for braking on aluminum road bike wheels.
The Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation process gives the braking surface very special characteristics regarding hardness and wear resistance. This is possible thanks to a very fine and compact matrix of alpha and microcrystalline gamma alumina and amorphous alumina embedded on the surface. Thanks to the high hardness of the layer, this new wheel presents excellent wear resistance. Fulcrum R&D department has developed a new design for Racing Zero Nite’s braking surface. The design created by turning allows superior braking efficiency. Specific blue brake pads should be used with this new model. The ‘grooves’ in the braking surface allow water to drain away increasing braking friction. This is possible thanks to a very fine and compact matrix of alpha and microcrystalline gamma alumina and amorphous alumina embedded on the surface. Thanks to the high hardness of the layer, this new wheel presents excellent wear resistance. With these wheels carbon brake pads must be used.

HUB

Carbon hub with oversize aluminum flange and Two-to-One™ technology: the doubling of the spokes on the cassette side provides greater torsional stiffness and therefore a greater reactivity at each pedal stroke. This means greater efficiency in the transmission of power to these type of road bike wheels.
The front hub has been redesigned, now it is smaller and lighter than before, smoothness will be ensured by the well known USB™ bearing technology.
The cap and cone technology maintains the most efficient angle of contact between the bearings and bearing seat, increasing the smoothness and durability.

FINALLY

Fulcrum 2:1 spoke ratio on rear wheel double the number of spokes on the drive side for greater wheel stability and improved power transfer in the rear wheel. The Racing Zero Nite wheels feature Fulcrums USB ceramic bearings which are 30% lighter40% more resistant and 50% smoother compared to the steel bearings featured in the 3’s 5’s and 7’s.

ABOUT THE FULCRUM BRAND

There is a huge Italian tradition of cycle engineering excellence and Fulcrum was born from the very heart of it. Competition testing with world level athletes and the expertize Fulcrum’s engineers possess means Fulcrum have become known for developing unsurpassed products with excellent performance, durability and market leading innovation. Key technologies pioneered by Fulcrum include 2:1 Two-to-One™ Spoke Ratio, which delivers incredible power transfer by doubling the spokes on the critical drive side of the wheels so no energy is wasted. Fulcrum has also focused on class leading rolling resistance through their CULT and USB Bearing Technologies which use ceramic bearings and cutting edge surface technology to massively reduce friction. CULT ball bearings are 9 times smoother than wheels with traditional bearings. All this innovation and technology has produced amazing results for everyday riders and pros alike with 4 world champions in just 6 years, Boonen, Bettini (x2) and Ballan.
