Two decades at the forefront of aero research mean that Zipp wheels are still the gold standard in performance. Pioneering research conducted by Zipp themselves and validated in the real world by a host of elite riders means you can be sure that every Zipp wheel will give you a tangible advantage. Aerodynamic wheels are faster for every rider, at every speed.

For 2012 the 303 is even faster, now featuring the amazing Firecrest rim profile. The 303 was the first carbon wheelset to win the Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders; two of the hardest cobbled classics and a stern test for all equipment, especially wheels. Now this full carbon clincher has taken it to the next level with the Firecrest rim profile, which optimises the aerodynamic profile of the wheel giving you a faster, simpler and more stable wheel. Put simply, the 303 Firecrest will help you go the distance however hard the going.

Key Features:

  • Firecrest rim shape makes the wheel faster, stronger and handle better.
  • 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 188 hub, it uses the most accurate Swiss steel bearings available.
  • Zipp has refined its venerable 88/188 hubset, 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.
  • Rim Depth: 45.0mm.
  • Spokes: 24 Sapim CX-Ray with external nipples.
  • Freehub Type: Campagnolo or Shimano/Sram.
  • Colour: Beyond Black.
  • Recommended tyre width: 21mm-35mm.
  • Max recommended rider weight: 225lbs (Manufacturer claimed).
  • Weight: 668g (PBK Office Scales).
