Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheel - Front - $919.93

The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher front wheel offers an aerodynamic advantage along with a fast-accelerating and sturdy build, making it an excellent all-around wheel for your speed-hungry rides. Ultralight carbon rim uses Firecrest(R) shaping to optimize the aerodynamic profile of both the front and back halves of the wheel. This rim shape also offers exceptional crosswind stability for worry-free handling, no matter the direction of the wind; dimpled surface dramatically reduces drag. Semi-shallow 32mm rim depth offers less rotational weight for fast-accelerating performance, and with its added aerodynamic advantage, it's a superb all-arounder. A wide rim profile increases side-to-side stiffness for responsive climbing, sprinting and cornering; also offers great control, comfort, and strength. 18 spokes are laced radially onto the Zipp 88 hub, which uses Swiss-made cartridge bearings with extremely smooth-rolling grade 10 steel balls. Contact seals in the hub are effectively watertight when in place but can be removed to save roughly one watt of power come race day. Bearing preload adjustment can be done after clamping the quick-release skewer, so you can maximize your performance and enhance longevity. Oversize 17mm diameter axle delivers significant stiffness for minimal deflection and precise response to input; axle spacing is 100mm. The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher front wheel has a maximum tire pressure of 125 psi (8.62 bar). Please note: This wheel is clincher-compatible only and comes with a quick-release skewer, rim tape, valve extender, Tangente butyl tube and Platinum Pro brake pads. Zipp recommends a maximum weight, including rider, bike and gear, of 250 lbs. (113kg). - $919.93
