Unpaved Tracks, Exciting Journeys, Trails & New Horizons
Bikepacking? Unsupported bike races? Breaking free from the limits of tarmac roads? B-Road or "gravel" bikes are all this and more, and the Fulcrum Rapid Red 5 DB wheel has been designed and developed for this kind of riding.
While developing the Rapid Red 5 DB, Fulcrum's R&D department brought together all the experience and technical expertise gained while creating racing bike wheels, drawing on this to design a model for use on surfaces other than pavement.
Unpaved roads, paths and dirt tracks call for a wider inner channel, 23 mm in this instance, with a low, ultra-resistant 24 mm rim, to cushion blows and deliver superb ride comfort, regardless of the stresses to which it's exposed.
The profile of the wheel enables tubeless ready tires between 30 and 46 mm with an extensive range of set-ups that can be adjusted to the type of tracks being ridden. The 24 straight-head spokes are supported by a solid aluminum hub, ideal for tackling rough terrain and for taking the slightly higher weights of a bike ready to go on a journey.
