In July 2004, Campagnolo S.r.l. founded Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l from an idea and from the passion for bikes of three aerospace engineers.
Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. design wheels and components for racing bikes and distributes them in over thirty countries. Based at Arcugnano amid the Berici Hills in the environs of Vicenza.
Fulcrum wheels gained the trust of great champions right from the beginning and have already crossed the world championship finishing line thrice in just three years: with Tom Boonen in 2005 and with Paolo Bettini in 2006 and 2007.
Fulcrum wheels were created for road racing but the real novelty in 2008 is the Fulcrum off-road wheels, suitable for the most impervious terrains. Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. only uses ultralight materials such as aluminium, carbon fibre and polyaramide, but ensures that the wheel's strength is never reduced.
