Specifically designed for the mud, sleet and rain, the Racing 5 CX bridges the gap between performance, durability and value.
Fulcrum uses a 24mm deep eyeleted alloy rim to balance weight savings with outstanding strength. Double butted aero stainless steel spokes and traditional alloy nipples offer further durability, efficiency, and easy maintenance. Fulcrum's 5-Axis spoke anchoring ensures perfectly uniform tension, extending strength and impact resistance.
The Racing 5 CX hubs feature over-sized bodies for rigid performance and responsive handling. Precision machined races and top-quality steel ball bearings deliver silky smooth performance and complete serviceability. Double gasket seals are specially designed to withstand dirt, mud and other off-road elements.
The Racing 5 CX Wheelset features 16 spokes laced radially on the front wheel, and 21 on the rear wheel, laced in Fulcrum's Two to One pattern. 130mm rear spacing. 700c. Compatible with Shimano/SRAM 10-speed cassettes and Shimano's newest 11-speed systems. Claimed weight: 1760g.

Great wheels for the price!!
Came true and straight right out of the box. These are on my aluminum Trek supported touring bike, and are both strong and light. Excellent value.
