Fulcrum Red Wind Review

Fulcrum Red Wind is not a big seller. But Fulcrum’s aero models begin with this Red Wind Series. This wheelset allows you to go fast without breaking the bank. Considering the affordability of the model, you can enjoy a fair share of features.

The Red Wind Wheels are combine an aluminum alloy braking surface with a structural carbon fiber rim set. The spokes are laced aero steel. The hubs are quite basic, but are durable and made up to the highest standards. The wheelset upon closer look is quite basic but offers all the necessary features. The aero section rims are 50mm deep. The hub bearings are adjustable and the spokes can be easily replaced. The hubs can spin smoothly right out of the box. The wheelset overall is a bit weighty at 1,858 grams. You can pair the set with Shimano or Campag freehubs.

Sure, the specs are not exactly fancy. But these wheels will definitely surprise you on the road. They perform like high-end Campag wheels, but you only had to pay less than $1,000. The Red Wind wheels excel when it comes to sidewinds. The wheels perform smoothly with a bit of stiffness, but without any discomfort or harsh grinding. You can get a really precise ride out of these wheels. The wheels definitely support high speeds as well. Plus, you will get extra accessories with the purchase, including a carrying bag and a quick release pair. In conclusion, the Red Wind wheels are an excellent choice for budget cyclists who want to experience a quick and hassle-free ride.
