The Fulcrum Racing 7 Disc Brake AFS Clincher Wheelset introduces you to a new way of experiencing cycling.
The choice of larger sized clincher tyres - 28mm or more - offer increased comfort for longer distances and the chance to enjoy more landscapes along the way, without having to stop when you come across gravel sections or white gravel roads - a major plus.
Racing 7 DB is a gravel wheel, an endurance bike wheel, a reliable, meticulously built wheel that ensures cyclists get the most out of long distance rides. With a perfectly fine-tuned bicycle you can concentrate on the joy of cycling.
F.I.C. Fulcrum Identification Card - 100% Handmade Quality - Right from its inception Fulcrum has been marked by feature that continues to this day: that is to design, prototype and industrialise all the wheels characterised by the red “F”.
Indeed these take shape inside of the R&D, the leading-edge department that represents the beating heart of the Italian company.
Every single component of the wheel, the materials chosen and the technologies applied are the tangible result of the effort that Fulcrum makes every day to give you maximum performance and reliability.
AFS Axle System - 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.
One HUB fits all - This solution responds to the need to fit the various axis standard on the market, with speed and ease. Different adaptors mean that the wheel is ready to mount on your bike in just a few steps.
Disc Specific Rim - Fulcrum is one of the first wheel manufacturers on the market to offer two completely different rim profiles from disc to conventional brake. So, no adaptation, but a rim conceived based on years of design experience.
Not requiring a braking track, Fulcrum’s R&D department designed a completely new profile, aimed at saving every single gram of weight and at improving aerodynamic efficiency.
Its greater width makes it a perfect fit for tyres of 25/28mm upwards.
Asymmetric Rim - The asymmetry is designed to improve rim tension, balancing the forces from brakes and sprocket cassette.

About The Brand
Since 2004, Fulcrum has developed wheels for bikes with a sole, constant objective in mind: to deliver the best performance that modern technology can offer.
A large part of this task is the responsibility of the R&D division engineering team in Italy. However, if you want to create even faster wheels, you cannot focus solely on test bench results, you also need to gain feedback from top riders and cycling fans worldwide.
And this is what Fulcrum has done: They race their bikes during lunch breaks or after work, test their wheels by pushing them to the max, fitting them to the bikes of world champions, listening to suggestions and comments from the world of racing and from their clients.
