Brand new for 2016, a Disc brake compatible version of the Fulcrum Racing 5 LG wheel.

This new Racing 5 has been brought in for 2016 with the wider rim as on the standard 5 LG and of course now disc specific. They have been designed with a slightly wider rim to facilitate an easier fitting of 25c tyres. This means the rider can benefit from better comfort, better grip and slower tyre wear.

Racing 5 are designed for everyday use and training. An optimum proposal from Fulcrum which guarantees excellent quality.

  • Oversized disc brake hub with oversized aluminium flange and sealed high-quality bearings ensure smoothness.
  • The rear wheel incorporates a new single-piece body which embodies the freewheel body and pawl carrier in a single component resulting in a considerable weight reduction.
  • 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. 21 spokes on front wheel, 21 on rear.
  • Plasma treated HG freewheel
  • The Racing 5's also have a deep upper bridge on the rim to facilitate clincher tyre fitting.
  • Weight: 1715g

Fulcrum Racing 5 Purchase

Excellent seller....items shipped promptly and in very excellent condition. Happy USA buyer....will do business with Probikekit.com again!

nice upgrade to stock wheels on a budget

This was my first time upgrading a wheelset so I didn't know what to expect. Overall, it went pretty smoothly. Discs installed easily and I didn't have to adjust the brake positioning, which surprised me. There was definitely a break-in period, which I didn't expect; the read hub had an inconsistent clicky sound at first and it didn't feel much faster, but over time the clicky sound became consistent/even and the wheels just started feeling faster. Based on my measurements (with garmin and strava), i'm up 10% over my pre-Fulcrum rides (so far). First few rides, only improved traction was noticed. This could be related to improved speed since I probably have a little more confidence in the handling. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. Pros: - more aero and slightly lighter than my stock wheels - increased traction on gravel and pavement with same tires - increased speed (+10% over fastest ride prior to upgrade) - appears tubeless compatible, but doesn't indicate Cons: - tons of stickers, but i'm too lazy to remove - fitting tubes in tire was a little tough -- had to push tube into the tire by valve stem to get enough clearance for the tire to grab the grooves of the wheel.
