Description of Fulcrum Red Passion 3 29 Inches Wheelset - AFS - FW: 15x100mm/QR | RW: 12x135/142mm/QR
Never known to compromise, the Red Passion 3 sets the bar in terms of steering precision for such a light wheelset. Red Passion 3 are very special wheels. All its components were designed and sized in synergy. So materials, dimensions and tensions work together for maximum harmonic performance.
This is what enables Red Passion 3 to make the difference when it comes to racing and fighting for victory – its natural environment.
The Red Passion 3 brings the high-end quality of the Red Passion series to a more affordable price. The only difference is that the hubs are completely made of aluminium, otherwise they will offer the same lightness and precision.
Version with the following axle mounts: FW - 15x100mm/QR and RW - 12x135/142mm/QR | AFS disc brake mounts.
The aluminum rim has an ultra low, milled profile to keep the lowest peripheral weight possible, making the wheel extremely reactive. This specific shape also provides excellent impact resistance. Tubeless ready: over the time tubeless has been established as the preferred solution, as it ensures better handling, lower rolling friction, more riding comfort and protection against punctures.
Red Passion 3 is ready for the conversion: thanks to a special contoured and reinforced rim profile that adheres more easily to the tire, while fitting is easy and safe.
The asymmetrical rear rim profile allows for better balancing of spoke tensions between drive and non drive side.
The Anti-Rotation System™ is designed to make sure that spokes will never lose their initial tension and remain in the position that have been studied in the wind tunnel tests to ensure the best aerodynamic penetration possible.
RDB Dynamic balance: The concept is simple and elegant: balance the weight of the gasket, with an item of similar weight placed on the exact opposite side. It is obtained by using two oversized spokes in the section opposite the joint. The result is a wheel with perfectly balanced rotational dynamics.
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.
