The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Tubeless Disc-brake wheel is harnessing high technology and for high adventure. Without the constraints of rim brake caliper compatibility or brake-track requirements, the 202 Firecrest opens new adventures, paved or not. What's more, Zipp has revised the industry changing Firecrest rim shape to be tubeless compatible, disc-brake specific, and more effecient at creating a fast and stable ride in any wind condition.
To maximize the aero performance of the wheels, Zipp's ABLC dimples extend all the way to the outer edge of the disc-specific rims. The new wheels also are optimized for wider tires to meet the performance needs of modern riders in search of low rolling resistance and aero efficiency with high comfort. The new 202 Firecrest Tubeless Disc-brake wheel has an internal width of 21 mm and is aerodynamically optimized for use with 28 mm wide tires. The new designs improve Firecrest's ability to yield low aerodynamic drag and high crosswind stability, a combination Zipp calls AeroBalance.
Tubeless compatible, the wheels feature a rim bed made with internal ridges to lock the tire's bead in place, ensuring secure performance even when ridden at lower tire pressures. A new carbon fiber layup for the Indianapolis-made rims keeps weight low while maintaining the Firecrest Carbon Clincher's proven durability. The robust 177D hub, paired with 24 Sapim CX Ray spokes, keeps the wheel stiff and responsive. To ensure compatibility with any bike, the versatile hub comes with swappable end caps to work with QR and 12 x 142 mm thru-axle.
