The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is all about aiming higher. Zipp took the classic 202 wheelset - the legendary climber’s companion - and transformed it into a stiff, lightweight and aerodynamic speed weapon ideal for every road you travel. That’s the power of Firecrest and Carbon Clincher technologies. At 1380g, the new 202 is the lightest entry in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup.
The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains the classic 32mm rim depth of its predecessor though, with the Firecrest profile, now has a wider 25.4mm max rim width. The results redefine what’s possible with a do-it-all classic road wheel. 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.
The Firecrest 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.
Now, add to that the Carbon Clincher technology. Zipp's exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power. Combine that with the Tangente Platinum brake pads and you have unmatched performance, all with the ease of use of a clincher.
