Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Front Bicycle Wheel – Classic White

ROAD CLASSIC, REVOLUTIONIZED The Zipp 202 Firecrest(R) Carbon Clincher Bicycle Wheel is all about aiming higher. Zipp took their classic 202 wheelset — the legendary climber’s companion — and transformed it into a stiff, lightweight and aerodynamic speed weapon ideal for every road you travel. That’s the power of Firecrest and Carbon Clincher technologies. At just 1,375 g/wheelset, the new 202 is the lightest entry in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup. The Zipp(R) 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains the classic 32 mm rim depth of its 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. Zipp’s two most profound wheel innovations, the Firecrest rim shape and Carbon Clincher technology, form the foundation of the new 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 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. Now, add to that Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. Their exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power. Combine that with Tangente Platinum brake pads and you have unmatched performance, all with the ease of use of a clincher. The 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher forced me to re-evaluate where I could ride such a light pair of wheels – besides the longest climbs I could find, it was really everywhere else that I realized how special they were,…
