Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher White Rear Bicycle Wheel Size 700c Hub SRAMShimano

Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher White Rear Bicycle Wheel Size 700c Hub SRAM/Shimano

Zipp's 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is all about aiming higher. Zipp took their classic 202 Tubular wheelset the legendary climber's companion and transformed it into a stiff, lightweight and aerodynamic Carbon Clincher speed weapon ideal for every road you travel. At 1,450g a wheelset, the 202 Firecrest is the lightest entry in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup. The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains the classic 32mm rim depth of its tubular predecessor though, with the Firecrest profile, now has a wider 25.4 mm max rim width. The results redefine what's possible with a do it all classic road wheel. The 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher now is laced to the maintenance free 177 hubset, with its best in class durability and improved bearing protection, all with no pre load adjustment needed. Other hub and wheel features include: Zipp's Firecrest rim and Carbon Clincher technology form the foundation of the 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Firecrest rims have a near constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. Zipp engineers used Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis to maximize aerodynamics and minimize wind produced torque, resulting in a 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher that is faster and better handling than a classic road wheel. Zipp's Firecrest rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel's center of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind produced steering torque has a minimal effect. 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. Carbon Clincher This is the culmination of two years of intensive prototyping and testing. Zipp worked with their composites supplier to develop an exclusive heat resistant resin based on the materials used in motorsports brake systems. This proprietary technology improves heat management so substantially that all Zipp Carbon Clinchers pass stringent CEN safety standards. ABLC Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control The patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of Zipp's 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. Wire EDM Electron Discharge Machining allows Zipp to cut the materials for their rear hub drive internals after they've been hardened through heat treating, negating the warping and imprecision caused by the heat treating process. Steel Bearings Zipp is the only company specifying Swiss made highly specialized ball bearing cartridges. Working with a family owned Swiss bearing manufacturer, Zipp is able to attain a superior level of bearing smoothness and long life. Zipp ball bearings are specified to 10 millionths of an inch tolerance, guaranteeing that they are at least 2.5 times rounder and better matched than most company's high precision balls, and more than five times tighter than most precision balls.
