Zipp 303 Firecrest Tubular Rear Wheel - Beyond Black


Out of Stock


The Zipp 303 is one of the most successful wheels in the pro peleton, with wins in the two classic cobbled races: Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. It's fast, aerodynamic and incredibly reliable.

With a wider rim profile, the 303 Firecrest Tubular features improved durability and aerodynamics. Both halves of the wheel have been optimised to create a faster rim, with excellent handling in crosswinds.

The 303 Tubular is one of the lightest carbon wheelset on the market. Its 45mm-deep rim can outperform deeper rims with a traditional V-shaped cross-section. Zipp have been able to manipulate the wheel's centre pressure, so the 303 will handle like a box-section rim. It's incredibly stable and suitable even in the windiest conditions.

Its 26.45mm wide brake track at the centre is optimised for wider tyres to improve the ride quality. 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.
