WARNING!
Carefully read understand and follow the instructions provided in this manual. Failure to observe any instruction in this manual may
damage the product and result in an accident, personal injury or death. This manual is an integral part of the wheels and must be
kept in a safe place for future reference.
MECHANIC QUALIFICATION - Please be advised that many bicycle service and repair tasks require specialized knowledge, tools and
experience. General mechanical aptitude may not be sufficient to properly service or repair your bicycle. If you have any doubt whatsoever
regarding your service/repair ability, please take your bicycle to a qualified repair shop.
INTENDED USE - These Fulcrum® wheels have been designed and manufactured for use only on bicycles of the “cross-country” types.
Do not use them for downhill, freestyle, acrobatic, four-cross or any extreme off-road riding. Misuse of the wheel may result in an accident,
personal injury or death.
LIFESPAN - WEAR - INSPECTION REQUIREMENT - The lifespan of Fulcrum® wheels depends on many factors, such as rider size, tyres
used and riding conditions. Impacts, falls, improper use or harsh use in general may compromise the structural integrity of the wheels and
significantly reduce their lifespan. Some components of the wheels are also subject to wear over time. Please have your wheels regularly
inspected by a qualified mechanic for any cracks, deformation, signs of fatigue or wear (use of penetrating fluid or other visual enhancers
to locate cracks on parts is recommended). If the inspection reveals any deformation, cracks, impact marks or stress marks, no matter
how slight, immediately replace the component; components that have experienced excessive wear also need immediate replacement. The
frequency of inspection depends on many factors. Check with your authorized representative of Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l. to select a schedule
that is best for you. Parts which have been bent or otherwise damaged in an accident or as a result of any other impact must not be restraightened. They must be replaced immediately with original Fulcrum® parts.
• If you weigh over 109 kg/240 lbs we advise you not to use this product. Non compliance with this warning can damage
the product irreversibly.
• If you weigh 82 kg/180 lbs or more, you must be especially vigilant and have your bicycle inspected more frequently (than
someone weighing less than 82 kg/180 lbs). Check with your mechanic to discuss whether the wheels you selected are suitable
for your use, and to determine the frequency of inspections.
Note: Tools supplied by other manufacturers for wheels similar to Fulcrum® wheels may not be compatible with Fulcrum® wheels. Likewise,
tools supplied by Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l. may not be compatible with components/wheels supplied by other manufacturers. Always check
with your mechanic or the tool manufacturer to insure compatibility before using tools supplied by one manufacturer on components/wheels
supplied by another.
The user of these Fulcrum wheels expressly recognizes that there are risks inherent in bicycle riding, including but not limited to the risk that
a component of the bicycle can fail, resulting in an accident, personal injury or death. By his purchase and use of these Fulcrum® wheels,
the user expressly, voluntarily and knowingly accepts and/or assumes these risks, including but not limited to the risk of passive or active
neglicence of Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l. or hidden, latent or obvious defects in the product, and agrees to hold of Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l. harmless
to the fullest extent permitted by law against any resulting damages.

If you ever have any questions, please contact your mechanic or your nearest Fulcrum® dealer for additional information.
• Carefully read the brake instructions provided by the brake manufacturer before use.
2.4 - Punctures
4.1 - Assembling the rotor on Axial Fixing System™ systems (WHERE EXPECTED)
• Ensure that the brake cables and components are in good condition.
When you puncture the tyre, the air leakage is slow and not immediate and in some cases allows you to keep on pedalling
back home. Remember that a Tubeless tyre can be repaired by applying a puncture repair patch or spray or by fitting a
traditional inner tube.
• Fit the rotor into its seat, taking care with the direction of rotation indicated by the arrow (Fig. 23).
• Check the correct operation of the brakes before starting to ride.
• If you are using the bike on wet surfaces, remember that the adherence of the tyres on the ground can vary considerably
and make it more difficult to control the bike. Also remember that because of the progressive drying of the braking surface
while braking, the braking power can change sharply. Therefore take greater care when cycling in wet conditions to prevent
possible accidents.
• Carefully follow the periodical maintenance program (See Chapter 5).
• Always use original Fulcrum® spare parts.
• Always wear a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet that is approved in the country of use.
• Wear clothes that are close-fitting and make you easy to see (fluorescent or bright colours). Do not cycle at night as it is more
difficult to be seen by others and to distinguish obstacles in your path. If you use the bike at night, use adequate lights and
reflectors, fitted securely and clean.
• If you have any other questions or comments, please contact your mechanic or nearest Fulcrum® dealer.

5. PERIODICAL WHEEL MAINTENANCE
Note
We recommend that you contact a specialized mechanic for all the assembly, disassembly and all hub, rim and spoke replacement
operations. Choose with him the most suitable interval of inspections for you on the basis of the conditions of use and intensity
of your activities (e.g. racing, rain, salted roads, muddy roads, cyclist’s weight, etc.).
A
• Inflate the inner tube until the two tyre beads go into place correctly (Fig. 18).
WARNING!
WARNING!
All operations of the nipples should be performed using the special T-11 tool, included in this kit. Use of other tools could
damage the nipples failure resulting in an accident, personal injury or death.
ATTENTION! NOTE FOR SPECIALIZED MECHANICS
Contact your Fulcrum® sales partner OR YOUR FULCRUM SERVICE CENTER for the
instructions for assembling, maintaining and replacing rims, spokes and hubs.
5.1 - CLEANING THE WHEELS
2. TYRES
Only use non-aggressive products such as water and neutral soap or specific products designed for cleaning
bicycles when cleaning the wheels. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners. Dry them using a soft cloth. Never
use abrasive or metal pads.
2.5 - Removing the tyre
In order to properly and safely use Fulcrum rims, a perfect seal must exist between the rim and tire. While Fulcrum makes no
representations about their performance or quality, and is not responsible for any possible failure of the tire, Fulcrum has only
tested its rims for use with tubeless tires. The rider assumes the risk of an accident in the event a different tire is used.
WARNING!
Avoid personal injury or death. Use only tubeless tires with Fulcrum rims.
The wheels you have purchased have been designed for use with tubeless tyres.
2.1 - Fitting the M1-102 Tubeless valve (Fig. 1)

Notes
WARNING!
Whenever possible, install or remove tires
by hand. If you are unable to do so, and
must use a tool, use only the tire lever supplied with the wheel. Any other lever may
damage the tire or rim, resulting in sudden
an unexpected loss of tire pressure and an
accident.

NOTES
- Salt, mud and sand seriously damage bicycles and their components. Thoroughly rinse, clean and dry your bike after using it
in these conditions.
- If you use water under pressure to wash your bike, we recommend that you never point the water jet directly onto the hubs.
Water under pressure, even just from the nozzle of a garden hose, can penetrate the seals inside hubs and irreparably damage
the bearings.
• Deflate the tyre (Fig. 10).
5.2 - TRANSPORT AND SAFEKEEPING
• Starting from the point opposite the valve,
press one side of the tyre with your hands
until you uncouple the bead from its seat (Fig. 11), making it drop into the rim groove (Fig. 12). Continue around the whole
wheel circumference (Fig. 13).
- The valve is supplied already fitted on the rim.
- Periodically check the tightness of the valve and of the entire Tubeless
system (see paragraph 2.6). We recommend changing the Tubeless
valve once a year to optimize tightness.
- Only use original Fulcrum® M1-102 valves.
- Tighten the valve ring (A – Fig. 1) by hand only.
• Carry out the same operations on the other side of the tyre (Fig. 19 and 20).

• Put the tyre back after moistening the base of the rim with soap and water.
Whenever possible, install or remove tires by hand. If you are unable
to do so, and must use a tool, use
only the tire lever supplied with
the wheel. Any other lever may
damage the tire or rim, resulting in
sudden an unexpected loss of tire
pressure and an accident.
• Check that the tyre is coupled perfectly by inflating it to a pressure slightly above the recommended value (see Table 1
– Operating Pressures) and then deflating it completely: the tyre beads must remain coupled with the rim and not drop
down into the rim groove.
• Moisten the base of the rim with
soap and water.
• Fit the first bead of the tyre into the rim groove (Fig. 2) starting from the point opposite
the valve.
• Fit the other bead of the tyre into the rim groove (Fig. 3) starting from the
point opposite the valve, and continue around the whole circumference of the 5
rim (Fig. 4).
If after all these checks the tightness of the Tubeless system is still not satisfactory, contact your nearest Fulcrum® dealer.
• Inflate the tyre to a pressure of 3 bar, immerse the wheel with its tyre in a basin of water or use a leakage detector spray
to check for cuts or punctures. Replace the tyre if necessary.
• If the leakage is in the valve zone, remove the valve, apply grease on the rubber part of the valve in contact with the rim
and replace the valve. If leakage continues, change the valve.
