Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset Tubeless

Zipp is known for speed. Hell, the brand's tagline is Speed Weaponry. But it also knows that all the speed in the world only amounts to a decidedly unhappy ending without the ability to stop. The 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset is tubeless ready and comically wide, a combination that boosts durability and encourages the use of plush tires. That in turn recommends the wheelset for riding fast in less than ideal conditions on the kinds of terrain that would make any other wheel balk. Enter the 303 Firecrest's disc brakes, which help ensure that, while taking advantage of Zipp's weaponized speed in the straights, you can enter the corners with abandon. The increased modulation and immediate response of discs mean that you can brake later to carry more speed into corners on everything from rain bogged gravel roads to off camber hairpins on grassy 'cross courses. Gravel bikes have opened up a whole new world of cycling adventure. We like exploring the road not typically taken by bike, but that doesn't mean we want to go slow while we're doing it, and Zipp's combination of aerodynamic embellishments and a wide rim encourage that impulse. The speed starts with the rim's shape, which hits the depth of traditional NACA shapes but tempers that shape with a rounded, bullet esque profile that enjoys the gains at low yaw angles while minimizing cross wind instability. This is especially important since the wheelset is designed for use on gravel, fire roads, hardpack you name it so reducing side forces lets you focus on wrestling with whatever surface you're on, not crosswinds. The Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control ABLC dimpling is another contributor here. Zipp credits the dimples with managing airflow across the rims' surfaces, helping it detach with reduced drag in all yaw angles, though it shines especially bright between 10 and 20 degrees. It's no accident that this is also the range in which we spend 50% of our time in the saddle. Since disc brakes r...
