Zipp’s 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is all about aiming higher. Zip 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. The wheel retains the classic 32mm rim depth of its predecessor though, with the Firecrest profile, now has a wider 25.4mm max rim width. The results redefine whats possible with a do-it-all classic road wheel.

The Firecrest rim shape improves stability by moving the wheels centre of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect. For strength and rigidity, the Firecrest 202 utilizes unidirectional fibres to handle tensile and comprehensive loading within the rim. This has been further reinforced by using woven fibres in the spoke-hole areas. A woven silica-ceramic fabric and a woven carbon fabric encapsulate the braking and tyre-mounting surfaces. The combination of fibre patterns creates the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio in Zipp production.

The 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is now laced to the maintenance-free 77/177 hubset, with its best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection, all with no pre-load adjustment needed. Features of the new hubs include:

> Optimised flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim CX Sprint spokes
> New robust hub platform with distinctive graphics
> Newly designed QR skewer
> New distinctive hub graphics
> Improved bearing protection and sealant
