2013 Zipp 303 Firecrest Clincher Rear Wheel - Beyond Black


Out of Stock


The Zipp 303 is one of the most successful wheels in the pro peleton, winning the Tour de France, Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race and the Tour of Flanders. It's fast, lightweight and incredibly reliable.

With a wider rim profile, the 303 Firecrest Clincher features improved durability and aerodynamics. It's been completely redesigned with Firecrest shaping, maintaining the aerodynamic advantages of the tubular 303 and the convenience of a clincher.

Each signature characteristic of the 303 has been improved in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher. The shape is optimised on the aerodynamic profile of the back wheel. Centre pressure of the wheel is moved backwards, and the 45mm deep rim provides crosswind stability. Its 26.4mm wide brake track (at the centre) enables the clincher to have a wider, more stable shape with no compromise on rolling resistance. Zipp 303 is a simple, fast and stable wheel.

303 feature the small details that make Zipp wheels a cut above the rest. Exposed spoke nipples lie in the aerodynamic shadow of the rims, making serviceability simple with no compromise to speed. Zipp's ABLC tim dimples squeezes out every last second of performance available. - A.D.

Key Features:

  • Firecrest rims have a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. The rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel's centre of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect.
  • Zipp Carbon Clincher technology utilises an exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, that tolerates the heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power.
  • ABLC dimpling ensures that the rim moves through the wind with the ease of a shark through water.
  • Carbon Bridge improves the stiffness and impact resistance of the wheels with the introduction of Kevlar in the wheel construction.
  • VCLC (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) technology absorbs the vibrations from the road, helping the wheel hold the road and transfer power.
  • The wheel uses Zipp's legendary 88 hub, it uses the most accurate Swiss steel bearings available.
