Product Description

Smooth is fast. That's true even when the conditions and terrain get a bit chaotic... You know, cyclocross... gravel roads... steep lonely lanes... urban assaults. The Zipp 303 Firecrest Disc-Brake Tubular Bicycle Wheel is durable, lightweight and stiff while also providing the consistent and powerful performance of disc braking.

At the center of the 303 Firecrest Disc-Brake Tubular Bicycle Wheel is a newly designed 11-speed compatible hub. Larger Swiss stainless steel bearings with a custom cartridge in the rear hub shell provide increased durability. The hub geometry and virtual 3-cross spoke-lacing pattern are optimized for reliability as well as exceptional stiffness, resulting in efficient power transfer and quick acceleration. The result is superior performance in conditions ideal for disc-brake riding.

When it's time to scrub off speed or stop, you won't have to tense up and 'grab a handful.' You have the consistency and power of disc brakes - precision modulation and stopping power is at your fingertips. You also get the unmatched stability and aerodynamic efficiency of the pro-proven 45mm deep 303 Firecrest rim.

Product Features

  • Firecrest - With the new proprietary Firecrest rim shape in Zipp's 202, 303, 404 and 808 Firecrest wheels, Zipp wheels make a bigger difference in more ways than ever. Not only is Firecrest more aerodynamic than any other rim design, it improves handling in crosswinds and overall ride quality.
  • ABLC™ (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) - Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of our carbon rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim's surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Super-9 Disc. The third-generation of ABLC has up to four times more dimples than before.
  • VCLC™ (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) - Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) uses a vibration-absorbing material sandwiched between layers of rigid carbon laminate in the rim. When the wheel receives an impact from the road, much of the shock is absorbed by the VCLC system, delivering a 10% reduction in vibration.
  • Carbon Bridge™ - Carbon Bridge uses a Kevlar® thread in a co-axial helix stitch to bind sheets of carbon to each other in Zipp's tubular rims. Because Kevlar is 350% more impact resistant than carbon, it can disperse shock more evenly throughout the carbon laminate, making for a rim that is practically bulletproof. In particular, Carbon Bridge reduces the vulnerability of the rim's tire bed, the area most susceptible to damage from impact.
