ZIPP Front Wheel 303 Firecrest Carbon Tubular Disc
The 303 is Zipps Do-it-all wheelset. From spring classics to Tour de France stages to the Cyclocross World Cup, many of the most important races in cycling have been won on these racers. With the disc brakes variant, you are not only fast on the road in any terrain, but also come back to standing fast and controlled.
The front wheel is equipped with 24 2-crossed Sapim CX-Ray Straightpull blades for Zipps 77D hub. With its optimized flange geometry, this ensures a high stiffness and durability of the impeller. Furthermore, it offers an excellent bearing seal and the storage of bearings is no longer necessary.
The impeller is delivered with 5x100 millimeter quick release axles including a further optimized Zipp quick release. In order to be equipped for all common axle type standard s, the hub can be converted with the included end caps by hand for the use of a 12x100mm or 15x100mm axle.
The 45 mm high rim has Zipps's proven Firecrest rim profile and an outer width of 28.5 millimeters. This results in a nearly seamless transition from the tire to the rim flange, even in 28 millimeter wide road tires, which considerably reduces the air resistance. In addition, a wide road tire experiences a better support which improves the cornering grip.
Due to the bulky Firecrest rim shape, the rim width from the rim horns to the spoke holes remains approximately constant. With this form, the Zipp engineers succeeded in balancing the air resistance between the wind-driven and wind-facing side of the rim. This makes the Firecrest wheel sets very well manageable even with strong side winds. In order to save the wind of every watt in the fight against the wind, the 303 is equipped with the ZIPS patented ABLC Dimple profile. Just like a golf ball, these micro-swirls lead the air stream with less resistance over the rim.
The tube version requires special tube rims that have to be glued to the rim.
