The Zipp 101 Clincher Front Wheel is quicker for every rider at any speed. With over two decades of research and development, the 101 is results proven. Zipp have fine tuned the rim shape to hugely improve aerodynamics, with no sacrifice to weight, handling or acceleration. It's the world's most aerodynamically advanced aluminium wheelset and the most affordable way to enjoy Zipp's aerodynamic technologies and excellent build quality to go the distance.
The 101's fully toroidal aluminium rim is developed in the wind tunnel, with a proprietary profile curve extending across brake surfaces. At 30mm deep, the 101 features greater aerodynamic performance than V-shaped rims with much deeper aero profiles. No shallow-profile design can come close to the 101 in the wind tunnel or on the roads, this wheel can save up to 42 seconds over 40km when compared to the benchmark aluminium wheelset.
Zipp developed new technologies to conduct wind-tunnel testing, making use of structural prototypes with fully inflated clincher tyres. The Zipp engineers focused on creating the fastest shape, with its range of rolling, welding and machining the precisely curved toroidal profile.
Its maximum width of 23.79mm perfectly functions with the common tyre sizes. The bulged profile of the 101 makes the airflow run smoothly around the wheel compared to normal narrow rim designs. Its wide platform is designed to resist pinch flatting, improve lateral stiffness and offer stable handling and without tyre squirm on rough surfaces. - A.D.
