Fulcrum Wind 40 Disc Brake Wheels Comp is closed and we have a Winner!

The competition is now closed and we have a winner - 

Congratulations to Mark Askew! you are now the lucky owner of a set of very swish Fulcrum 40 Wind DB wheels.  i-Ride Distribution will be in contact with you shortly.

Many thanks to everybody else who entered, better luck next time.


Win our latest compo and you could be riding around on some very new Fulcrum 40 Wind DB  wheels AND Continental GP5000  tyres worth a combined £1246 courtesy of i-Ride - Fulcrum’s UK distributor.

With this lot on your bike you will bang on trend when it comes to the latest wheel and tyre technology and braking technology: The ‘DB’ stands for disc brakes (but you knew that) so they’re 12mm thru axle compatible, they’re also tubeless ready, aero optimised, and you can fit anything from 23mm (#oldskool) right up to an achingly hip/fat 50mm! 

Fulcrum Wind 40DB

These wheels are so new we only saw them a few weeks ago at Eurobike, so you really are getting something special here from i-Ride and Fulcrum. They are so new we haven't tested them, but our roving Eurobike reporter Liam did get a sneak peek; he thought they looked like they will offer a good balance of aero and climbing performance with a decent width for wider road tyres. If you win them maybe you could give us some feedback! For more on the tech here is what Fulcrum has to say about these new 40 Wind DB wheels:

"The combination of attention to aerodynamics and versatility creates the Wind 40 DB.

"It's easy to see that the design of the 40 mm rim is the direct descendant of the Speed 55 wheel: all the features developed for the range-topping wheelsets have been included here, in a more versatile version.

Fulcrum Wind 40 DB rim

"The Wind 40 DB has a 40 mm deep, lightweight rim, created by the superposition of wide, modern unidirectional carbon layers, with a pronounced profile (8 mm radius). The design incorporates innovative shapes, designed to provide a smooth transition between the tyre and the rim eliminating turbulence.

40 mm also means wide versatility, as it is generally the size most appreciated by those who do not want to overdo things, but want an excellent wheel uphill, stiff and snappy, precise when riding.

The wheelset is completed with aluminium hubs, which support 24 "straight pull" spokes, guaranteeing maximum overall rigidity, both in acceleration and when braking, without lateral movement due to the asymmetric nature of the forces coming from the disc and cassette.

The Wind 40 DB is certainly the multi-purpose choice, with a strong focus on aerodynamics, to be fast, very fast, uphill, fast, very fast, on the flat, and just as much so downhill." 

I get the distinct impression they're trying to tell us they're fast... very fast!
