Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Front WheelAt only 1375 grams per set, the Zipp 202 Firecrest carbon clincher wheel set is the lightest of the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup. Zipp's two most profound wheel innovations, the Firecrest rim shape and Carbon Clincher technology, form the foundation of the new 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher.
Firecrest rims have a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. Zipp used Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis to maximize aerodynamics and minimize wind-produced torque, resulting in a 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher that is faster and better handling than a classic road wheel. Their Firecrest rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel's center of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect.
The Carbon Clincher technology features Zipp's exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, which effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power. Combined with the Tangente Platinum brake pads, you have unmatched performance.
