Description

Updating Zipp's legendary 303 with Firecrest, these carbon clinchers take what has been one of the most winning sets of wheels ever, with numerous Tour wins, Classics wins and the first carbon wheels to win the cobbled Classics of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix, and make the small but significant changes that have been proven to make them even faster.

Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology preserves the aerodynamic advantages of the 303 Firecrest’s tubular brother, while adding the convenience of a clincher tire. And at just 1,625g, it’s light enough to climb up the steepest gradients with ease as a go-to all-around wheelset.

The Firecrest shaping optimizes the aerodynamic profile of both the front half and the back half of the wheel. In addition, Firecrest moves the center of pressure of the wheel backwards, giving the 45 mm-deep rim the crosswind stability a box-section rim. At the same time, the 26.4 mm-wide brake track (at center) allows the clincher tire to take on a wider, more stable shape without compromising rolling resistance. It’s faster, simpler, and more stable.

The new wheels retain all the small details that make Zipp wheels what they are. Exposed spoke nipples sit in the aerodynamic shadow of the rims, keeping serviceability simple without compromising speed, while Zipp's signature ABLC™ rim dimples squeeze every last second of performance possible.

Laced to the rims, you'll find Zipp's new 77 and 177 hubset which provides best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection, all with no pre-load adjustment needed. Features of the hubs include:

> Optimised flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim CX Sprint spokes
> New robust hub platform with distinctive graphics
> Newly designed QR skewer
> New distinctive hub graphics
> Improved bearing protection and sealant

Extras

Available in two decal options, the stealthy Matte Black or the distinctive Matte White decals. Each 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, rim tape and quick release.

Product Note: A few frames with narrow seat and chainstays pose a problem with clearance with the wide 303 Firecrest profile under power. Zipp urge customers who plan on riding the 303 Firecrest to test the wheel within the frame in which they intend to ride, under normal riding and road conditions, before purchasing. Clearance within individual frames of the same size, from the same manufacturer, may vary. That is why it is imperative that you test the wheel in your frame, or in the frame that you are considering purchasing. Known frames to cause issues include Specialized Tarmac SL4 and S-Works McLaren Venge.
