Rapid Red 5 DB 28″ Disc Wheelset

With the Rapid Red 5 DB wheelset by Fulcrum for 28″ tyres, you will no longer be stopped by bad road surfaces or gravel passages. Designed specifically for use on 28″ gravel bikes, it lets you experience new adventures off the beaten track every day.

Ready for your gravel adventure: the Rapid Red 5 DB 28″ wheelset from Fulcrum

In the development of the Rapid Red 5 DB, Fulcrum has brought together all the experience and technical know-how gained in the production of wheels for road bikes, and designed a model for surfaces other than asphalt. Unpaved roads, trails and dirt tracks require a wider inner channel – in this case 23 mm – with a low, extremely resistant 24 mm rim to absorb shocks and provide excellent riding comfort, whatever the stresses to which it is subjected. The tread pattern of the wheel allows the fitting of tyres between 30 and 46 mm with a wide range of settings that can be adjusted according to the type of road you ride on. The 24 straight-head spokes are supported by a solid aluminium hub, ideal for rough terrain and for the slightly higher weight of a touring bike. Get ready for your next journey: Your Rapid Red 5 DB wheels will be your loyal companion: comfortable and reliable, light and precise.

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.

2-WAY FIT™ Ready
The wheelset can be converted into a tubeless system. The conversion is only permitted for certain types of tyres. For more information, visit the Fulcrum website.
