Product Details

Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Rear Wheel (Clincher)

Zipp makes the impossible possible with their Firecrest 303s—they're equally at home on the flats as they are in the mountains. The 45mm-deep rims slice through the wind with more efficiency than many deep-section wheels thanks to their 28.5mm-wide dimpled rims. By creating a seamless junction between rim and tire, the increased width results in less drag. The 303s climb with the best and re-accelerate out of corners like rockets since they barely register on the scales, which makes them a must-have on undulating terrain. The extra wide rim also allows you to run wider tires at a lower pressure with less fear of pinch flatting, which boosts ride quality and comfort and reduces rolling resistance. Zipp’s stiff hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes provide the finishing touches.
