Smooth is fast. That’s true even when the conditions and terrain get a bit chaotic. Whether you're riding gravel roads, cyclocross, speed descents or urban assaults, The Zipp 303 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset is durable, lightweight and stiff while also providing the consistent and powerful performance of disc braking.
At the center of the 303 Firecrest Disc Carbon Clincher Disc-brake wheelset is a newly designed 11-speed compatible hub. Larger Swiss stainless steel bearings with a custom cartridge in the rear hub shell provide increased durability. The hub geometry and virtual 3-cross spoke-lacing pattern are optimized for reliability as well as exceptional stiffness, resulting in efficient power transfer and quick acceleration. The result is superior performance in conditions ideal for disc-brake riding.
In developing the original 303 wheelset, Zipp discovered that a wider rim increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering while also providing greater vertical compliance for greater control, comfort and durability. That wider rim profile led Zipp to develop their impressive Firecrest technology, which revolutionized aerodynamic efficiency and stability for carbon wheels. The proprietary Firecrest rim shape optimizes the aerodynamic profile of the front half and – here’s the revolutionary part—the back half of the wheel. Firecrest moves the wheel’s center of pressure to be more in line with the steering axis for stability in even the stiffest crosswinds. All of that innovation along with the precision control of disc braking gives you a wheel that’s as smooth as it is tough. If you're setting out with your eyes on a spot on the podium, you won't regret taking the 303 Firecrest Clincher along for the journey.Wheels sold individually, select front or rear from dropdown menu
