Product Description

Red Zone 5 - These wheels have a definite wow factor and are a cut above the rest.

The passion of everyday life, the alarm clock that goes off for your morning training session, those "stolen" hours before dinner and your long Saturday outings with friends: adventure, goals, flow. These MTB wheels are ideal for a variety of different situations, so we put ourselves in the shoes of those who might choose them and asked ourselves: what do these wheels need?

They're reliable, well-balanced in terms of weight and stiff enough for cyclists to clock up the kilometres with complete peace of mind. With these wheels cyclists can focus on enjoying their surroundings, drinking in the view behind each bend while keeping up with their seasonal schedule.

Fulcrum's R&D department has studied the market and produced their interpretation, creating Cross Country wheels to meet the demands of today's cycling routes. The wheels are ready to use and feature a wider groove with solid, sophisticated spoking.

AFS Axle System

The Axial Fixing System is the solution developed by Fulcrum® to fix the disc brake to the hub. The constraint granted by the butt area of the release mechanism, greater than in familiar standard ones, makes it possible to obtain greater structural rigidity and therefore more precise and powerful braking.

One Hub Fits All

This solution responds to the need to fit the various axis standard on the market, with speed and ease.

Different adaptors mean that the wheel is ready to mount on your bike in just a few steps.

MTB Wheels Guide

How do I choose an MTB wheel?

There are many different sizes of MTB wheels and it is important to get the right one to fit your bike. There are five things that you need to consider when choosing a new wheel; wheel diameter, axle type, hub spacing, rim width and freehub type (rear wheel only).

What are the different wheel diameters (sizes)?

MTB wheels are available in 4 different diameters:

  • 29” - cross country (XC) and trail bikes
  • 650b (27.5”) – Most common size, XC, trail and downhill bikes
  • 26” – the traditional wheel size, but is now less common
  • 24” – only found on certain jump and junior bikes

What are the different axle types?

There are different axle types for front and rear wheels:

  • QR (9mm) – quick release skewer – for front and rear wheels
  • 10mm – thru axle - for rear wheels
  • 12mm – thru axle – for rear wheels
  • 15mm – thru axle – for front wheels
  • 20mm – thru axle – for front wheels

What about hub spacing?

As with axle types there are specific hub spacing’s for front and rear wheels:

  • 100mm - front, traditional size
  • 110mm – front, Boost standard
  • 135mm – rear, traditional size
  • 142mm – rear, most common
  • 148mm – rear, Boost standard
  • 150mm – rear, Downhill bikes

Why does rim width matter?

Yes. This is because weight on the rim adversely affects acceleration and climbing more than weight on any other part of the bike. Having said that a wider (and heavier) rim is more robust and will offer more support for the tyre. For this reason, cross country MTBs tend to have narrower rims than trail and downhill bikes. As long as you get the wheel diameter, axle type and hub spacing to match your existing wheel it is usually possible to change the rim width for either a lighter or a sturdier wheel.

What about Plus sizes?

Plus sized 27.5” & 29” wheels use very wide rims (38-50mm) that require Boost standard hub spacing. You can only use these rims on ‘Plus Sized’ bikes.

What are the different freehub options?

The freehub is the part of the rear wheel that the cassette fixes on to. There are 3 main freehub types that fit specific cassettes:

  • Shimano and SRAM– fits Shimano and SRAM 8, 9 & 10 speed cassettes
  • SRAM XD – fits SRAM 11 & 12 speed cassettes
  • Hope – fits hope 11 speed cassettes

If you match the above criteria, then you can be sure that the wheel you buy will be compatible with your mountain bike.

Do I need a disc specific wheel?

If you have disc brakes on your bike then you will need a disc specific wheel. There are two different types of disc rotors that are compatible with different hubs:

  • 6 bolt – most common type
  • Centre lock – used on certain Shimano hubs

Note – disc specific wheels are not compatible with rim brakes.

What about tubeless?

Some wheels are ready to be used with tubeless tyres straight out of the box while others can be converted with a simple conversion kit. This will usually be specified in the product description.

Wheels are either sold individually or in pairs known as wheelsets. Check the product description for more details.
