Designed with the aim of balancing performance and comfort, the Wind 42 guarantees fluid handling and versatility. The new wheels are not solely for road use, as they can also handle light off-road riding (ASTM category 2) so that your fun can extend beyond traffic-congested roads. This project embraces the various ways that people are using road bikes lately.
From the range-topping Speed family, in terms of performance, the Wind 42 inherits many of Fulcrum's proprietary technologies, to offer a superior ride feel compared to the previous generation.
Handling has been improved by 22% and reactivity by +10%* on these versatile and comfortable wheels, making them perfect for modern cyclists.
Amongst the most evident changes, are the rims whose height has been raised to 42 mm, with an inner rim channel of 23 mm. The graphics have been completely redesigned too and reflect the new Form Function Fulcrum brand identity, with a minimal and at the same time refined design, which includes new icons that provide all the product's technical information.
2-Way FitT profile for tubeless and clincher.
Tubeless technology was first used by the auto industry, then by motorcycles and now has reached the cycling industry. After its debut with mountain bikes, the moment has come to "put it on the road", and that's what we propose to do.
We have developed our 2-Way FitT technology to ensure the perfect compatibility of our tubeless rims with normal clincher tyres and tubes. 2-Way FitTroad bike wheels are perfectly multipurpose for tackling every situation. Thanks to a special impression in the valve area, the tubes are fitted with maximum precision while keeping the tube perfectly stable inside the tyre.
Housing the valve for tubeless tyres is also risk-free, with the unquestionable advantage that there are never any air infiltrations caused by non-ideal positioning when fitting.
DRSCT - Directionated Rim Spoke Coupling
Exclusive rim/spoke coupling system. It allows the rim, spokes, nipples and hub to align properly with the same tensioning value in all areas.
What is MoMagT?
A magnet and lots of ingenuity. This was what led to the patent for the well-tested "Mounting Magnet" system, or MoMagT.
This new system raises the concept of spoking to a new level of performance for road bike and triathlon wheels ( and MTB too)
The Fulcrum engineers have redesigned the spokes and the hub housings to create a solid and unmoveable whole. The result is that the spokes
a) will never lose their initial tension, thus keeping the wheel perfectly reactive and centred
b) will remain in the position that has been studied in the wind tunnel tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration possible.
A guarantee of quality, The keyword for our products is: traceable.
If you find a little label attached to any Fulcrum product, do not remove it. It will provide you with a guarantee in case of an ascertained defectiveness of a production batch, and so the component needed or wheel will be traceable.
All this because, devoted to its mission, Fulcrum demands absolute perfection and safety for its customers.
AFS Axle System
The Axial Fixing SystemT is the solution developed by Fulcrum to fix the disc brake to the hub. The constraint granted by the butt area of the release mechanism, greater than in familiar standard ones, makes it possible to obtain greater structural rigidity and therefore more precise and powerful braking.
Rim Full Carbon Technology
Full carbon Fulcrum rims are built using combinations, developed in the laboratory, of different types of fibre, including UD and the famous 90-degree 3K of models at the top of our range.
To build them we developed a special HTG (high transition grade) resin, whose glass transition point is at a higher temperature than any other fibre used in the bicycle industry.
This gives incomparable performance when braking.
Wide Rim Tech
Fulcrum's R&D department, following requests from the competition circuit, has worked to create rims that are wider than before, about 4 mm or more than previously. This technical choice provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tyres, the sizes currently popular.
This ensures stability, excellent handling and superior comfort.
Undrilled Rim Bed
No holes on the bridge connector mean that the rim is uniform at every point, free from critical areas subject to stress.
The advantages are immediately clear: less weight, longer-lasting rims, greater fatigue resistance, the possibility of giving the spokes more tension and more stiffness which, in terms of performance, means improved responsiveness and acceleration.
