ZIPP 202 Tubular wheelset
The Zipp 202 Tubular Zipp is legendary mountain wheelset. This wheelset won numerous mountain stages of Grand Tours and won leading jerseys. But on PAVs of Paris-Roubaix, the 202 several times survived successfully. The fact that the 202 is the first choice of top professionals is, when it comes to the high mountains or are stretches with many changes of direction on the racing calendar, is not surprising. With a weight of only 1180 grams, the Tubular variant has only a very small rotating mass and can accelerate very easily. Perfect if you want to shake off the counterparty on the mountain with an attack.
But to build only a slight wheelset has the good climbing ability, was the Zipp engineers in developing the 202 too little. Equipped with a 32-millimeter rim with zips bulbous toroidal rim shape, it has better aero properties than most 50 millimeters high wheelsets with V-profile. But not only the profile of the rim leads to the outstanding aero properties at relatively low rim height. Also, the 202 is equipped with Zipp's patented ABLC Dimpleprofil. Just like a golf ball these indentations guided by micro turbulence airflow with less resistance on the rim.
Spoked is the wheelset with front 18 and rear 24 Sapim CX Sprint spokes Straightpull to Zipp 77/177 hub pair. This makes its optimized flange geometry for high rigidity and durability of the wheels. Furthermore, they offer an excellent bearing sealing and adjusting the bearing clearance is no longer necessary. For all the wider translation for use in extreme intended use prefer to an XD Freilaukörper for retrofitting is available.
That Zipp continually optimizes all details of their wheelsets, is also reflected in the revised rim stickers. These have become even thinner in order to adapt better to the dimple design can and it could also be a few grams of weight can be saved. They are available in the colors matt white and matt black
