Like the Red Zone Carbon+ wheels before them, the Fulcrum Speed 25+ get the “plus” upgrade to a lighter rim and premium parts. These changes make them their lightest shallow wheelset ever at just 1,270g.
Designed for both steep alpine climbs and long-distance riding, the 26mm deep rim shouldn’t have any trouble with crosswinds. Interior width is 21mm with a non-drilled rim bed for easy tubeless setup.
The rims’ matte carbon finish comes straight out of the molds like that, requiring no cosmetic layers that add weight. The hubs are a gunmetal gray with laser etched finish, so those aren’t decals creating the graphics and logo.
Hubs come with their CULT (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology) bearings with a cup & cone design. Both the ball bearings and the races are ceramic coated for the smoothest possible rolling.
Inside the rear hub is an all-new freehub body that’s lighter and comes with USB ceramic bearings inside it. It’s available in XDR, N3W, and HG versions.
Prices from $2955-2967 / 2591-2600€, depending on freehub body. Available now.
