Break away from your winter blues.
Winter riding got you down? Salty, gritty miles can wear down your bike as much as your legs. Whether you’re trying to keep your race wheels fresh during the winter months or looking for an affordable wheelset that keeps the weight down, the Racing 5 DB’s are a solid option for disc brake bicycles.
Let’s start with the 27.5mm deep aluminum rims. While offering a bit of aerodynamic advantage, these wheels are still shallow enough to spin up quickly. Made to be ridden everyday, these wheels will float over the bumps and humps in the road and conquer the gravel with ease.
Using Fulcrum’s 2:1 Spoke Ratio™, both rims are laced to the high-flanged aluminum hubs with 21 straight pull spokes for improved torsional stiffness without adding weight. These exceptionally strong wheels resist deflection from disc brake forces while simultaneously delivering your watts as efficiently as possible.
