Winter miles are rough on bikes and riders alike. Tuck away those carbon race wheels and get on a pair of these Racing 5’s, now available for disc-brake equipped bicycles. These aluminum rims will comfortably seat tires ranging from 25mm to 32mm, making them ideal for winter basemiles, commuting, or grinding out some gravel.
The 27.5mm-deep aluminum rims are shallow enough to spin up quickly, but deep enough to still offer a bit of aerodynamic advantage. Once the road gets rough or stops altogether, the aluminum will provide a bit of cushion to keep the chatter down.
In order to increase torsional stiffness, Fulcrum’s hubs oversized flanges lace spokes in a two-to-one pattern. What results is a snappy, responsive wheelset that spins up quickly and floats over the irregularities of the road surface.
