Zipp's most versatile rim, the 2013 303 is now faster, more comfortable, and more stable. Moving away from the conventional "V," the Firecrest shape is more of a "Deep U." The improved aerodynamics spills air in cross winds and helps the wheel maintain course. You 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 188 rear hub uses 10 Swiss steel bearings that roll more smoothly than many ceramic bearings. 24 spokes, radial drive-side/ cross non-drive. Includes skewer, valve extender and brake pads.
