Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. designs wheels and components for racing bikes and distributes them in over 30 countries worldwide. The company headquarters are in Arcugnano, in the Berici hills near Vicenza, Italy. Fulcrum North America LLC. was established 2010 in Sarasota, Florida. Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. was established in July 2004, based on the idea of three aerospace engineers who are passionate about bicycles. The strong points of this young company include the use of unique patents, ongoing technological research, and creative, Italian design. Fulcrum wheels were initially created for road racing, but in 2008 the Fulcrum family welcomed two important new members: off-road wheels, and carbon cranks. Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. uses only ultra-light materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber, and polyamide. Fulcrum has developed a number of systems that are unique in the world: 2:1 Two-to-one, for doubling the number of spokes in critical points, Dynamic Balance, for obtaining a constantly balanced rotation dynamic, MoMag, which ensures a durability and perfect spoke support, and A.F.S. (Axial Fixing System) for complete compatibility with all the off-road disc braking systems. Fulcrum has also entered the world of tubeless road wheels, with the innovative 2-Way Fit system: an exclusive rim profile that makes it possible to fit either a tubeless tire or a classic clincher on the same wheel.
