Established in July 2004 in Italy, Fulcrum Wheels s.r.l. is the brainchild of three aerospace engineers who were also very passionate cyclists, and the success of this very young and vibrant company is fundamentally based on unique patents, continuous technological research and attractive and young spirited designs. Fulcrum started manufacturing wheels only for road bikes, but in 2008, two more product lines joined the Fulcrum family, wheels for off road bikes and carbon fibre cranks for racing bikes.

Ahh Colnago. The Italian beauty most of us may have encountered. Some may think that bikes of such brand and prestige may cost us a kidney. This is not the case for the Colnago A1R. With a rich history behind the brand and proven in the fields of the most competitive races in the world, you are sure that you are paying for a really bang for a buck package with technologies that has been tested and proven. As Colnago themselves said. This bike has been “Designed and studied by following the legendary Colnago criteria”. You can be sure that this bike is no slouch comparing to their higher end models.
Emergencies are something that nobody would want to experience if possible, because it always calls for an immediate intervention to prevent the urgent problem from getting worse and escalating further, therefore it is something that everyone should be adequately prepared for. In cycling, getting a puncture mid-race or even halfway through your trail thrills or in your group ride is also one such emergency, nothing spoils your rhythm and pace like a sudden puncture in your tyres halfway through the ride, then you would have to stop and pull up to the side of the road, get off your bike and try to repair the puncture as quick as possible without wasting any more time, or you could have dropped off your group ride, or wasting your group mates’ time while you try to fix the flat, frustrated.
High performance Italian bike manufacturer Colnago was founded in 1952 by Ernesto Colnago who opted to work in the bicycle industry when he was a teenager instead of working at his family’s farm. His brief stint in road racing was abruptly cut short due to injuries from a bad crash while racing, therefore turning to being a racing mechanic for some of the best cycling teams in the 50s and early 60s, all while still building steel frames for the cycling industry. The 70s was a boom time for Colnago as they started mass producing bikes for the American market too and were producing huge volumes of bikes to meet the demands of a constantly growing market. Their bikes still continue to win world championship races until today, beginning from the early 80s, including the historical rainbow jersey win by Giuseppe (a.k.a. Beppe) Saronni in 1982 at the UCI Road World Championships in Goodwood, Great Britain. Frame materials also advanced along the way from the traditional steel tubes to aluminum and titanium until the strongest and lightest carbon fibre materials used to manufacture some of the best performing road racing bikes in the world today.
