The new aluminium rim profile has been CNC machined and lightened.

The inner rim width has been increased from 17mm up to 19mm and Fulcrum says it can easily take 25mm tyres.

“The lower aerodynamic resistance and decreased stiffness, achieved with the lower 24mm U-shaped profile, makes them the ideal technical choice for long rides without having to worry about climbing, rain or wind, with a consequent saving in energy and increased comfort,” says Fulcrum.
