Clincher Wheel-Skewer Included
Weight: 716 grams (w/ skewer)
Zipp's most versatile rim, the 2014 303, is now faster, more comfortable and more stable. The 303 Firecrest rim is shaped more like a "Deep U", as opposed to a conventional V-shape, allowing air to spill over the rim in cross winds, thus helping the wheel maintain course. You'll feel like you can ride 'within' the wind instead of against it. In addition to the aerodynamic benefits, the wider inner diameter creates a 'leaf spring' effect on rough terrain and absorbs vibrations better than any other deep section rim. At the same time, the 26.2mm-wide brake track allows the clincher tire to take on a wider, more stable shape without compromising rolling resistance. All Zipp full-carbon clinchers feature an exclusive heat-resistant resin as part of the composite structure, preventing temperature spikes in rim and tire pressure that can cause flats. With a complete wheelset weight of just 1498 grams, it's light enough to climb up the steepest gradients with ease. The Zipp 88 front hub uses 10 Swiss steel bearings that roll more smoothly than many ceramic bearings. 18 radial spokes. Includes skewer, valve extender and brake pads.
Zipp's innovative approach to aerodynamics allows the Firecrest to handle crosswinds with stability you'd normally find in rims half as deep.
