Tubeless technology was first used in the automotive sector, then in motorcycles and finally in bicycles. After entering the MTB world, the time has come for their use on the road: Fulcrum has developed the 2-Way Fit™ technology to guarantee the perfect compatibility of Fulcrum tubeless rims even with normal clincher tyres with tubes. 2-Way Fit™ wheels are particularly versatile and therefore perfectly suited to every situation. Thanks to a special marking in the valve area, the tubes are mounted with high precision and the tube remains firmly stabilized in the clincher tire. The valve for tubeless tyres can also be used safely. This offers the undeniable advantage that air can never penetrate during assembly due to inaccurate positioning.
The advantages are undisputed: tests have shown an incomparably high increase in smoothness. The absence of a tube prevents friction with the tyre and the perfect adhesion of the tyre to the rim prevents energy loss. A tubeless tyre cannot lose air abruptly through a hole and suddenly become flat, which is a clear safety advantage. There is also no danger of snake bites, as there is no tube that can be punctured.
What about a flat tyre? Don't worry! One of the advantages of the Fulcrum 2-Way Fit™ system is the possibility of removing the tubeless valve and inserting a normal tube to get you home.
Fulcrum has always been respected for the extreme smoothness and reliability of its hubs. These characteristics are due to the fact that all projects are developed in the R&D department and an almost manic attention is paid to every detail. The hubs with USB (Ultra Smooth Bearings) ceramic bearings further increase wheel smoothness and reduce weight and maintenance. Comparative tests have shown that USB bearings are 50% smoother running than standard bearings. Improving your performance, whether in a competition or a ride with your friends, is now easier.
At the moment when the rider pedals at full power, the rotation of the cassette causes the spokes on the freehub side to give way, resulting in a loss of rim tension. This causes excessive bending of the whole and this inevitably means a loss of energy. Fulcrum has solved this classic problem in cycling with its 2:1 Two-to-One Spoke Ratio patent, that is, with twice the number of spokes in critical areas. In this way, two spokes take over the task of one, the yielding and twisting of the wheel remains low and the transmission of the athlete's energy becomes much more efficient. Thanks to this patent, the spoke tensions are more balanced and the fatigue strength of rim, hub and spokes is much higher.
