Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheelset 2019
Offering trickle-down technology from Zipp's flagship NSW wheels, the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheelset is packed with innovation. AeroBalance™ provides the unmatched combination of low drag and high stability that these wheels offer, thanks to ABLC Sawtooth™ dimples on the rim and a 45mm depth.
Durable and race-ready, the 303 Firecrests are ideal for both training and racing, and have been optimised for 25mm tyres. Another key upgrade is the inclusion of Zipp’s ShowStopper™ textured braking surface that clears water fast so you can brake with confidence in all conditions. The rims are laced to pro-proven 77/177 hubs by 18 and 24 Sapim® CX-Sprint® spokes, front and rear respectively, for a strong and stiff build.
