2013 Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Road WheelThe Zipp 303 Carbon Clincher wheels speed, lightweight, and complete reliability have been proven in cycling's most demanding races and events. Now, they are completely redesigned with Firecrest shaping, and 11-speed Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 compatible. The Carbon Clincher preserves the aerodynamic advantages of its tubular brother, while adding the convenience of a clincher tire. And at just 1,475 grams it's light enough to climb up the steepest gradients with ease.
All of the hallmark characteristics of the 303 have improved with the Firecrest Carbon Clincher. 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 wheels retain all the small details that make Zipp wheels exquisite. Exposed spoke nipples sit in the aerodynamic shadow of the rims, keeping serviceability simple without compromising speed. Zipp's signature ABLC rim dimples squeeze every last second of performance possible. To complete the package, Zipp has refined its venerable 88/188 hub set, reshaping the hub body and pushing the non-drive-side flange and bearing out by 7.5 mm on the rear hub to increase overall stiffness and strength.
