There can’t be many cyclists out there that wouldn’t love to put on a set of Zipp wheels. Famous for their deep rim carbon fibre wheel sets that have become the mainstay of many pro cycle teams, Zipp has carved out an enviable reputation amongst pro and amateur cyclists alike.
Originally created by Leigh Sargent a former motor racing engineer and expert in carbon fibre technology, they’ve gone on to build some of the most advanced carbon fibre wheel sets currently available.
Range of Zipp Wheels
Super-9 – The Super-9 is Zipp’s newest disc wheel which is designed and built specifically for time trials and track racing. It is basically an improved version of the Sub-9.
Sub-9 – The Sub-9 is Zipp’s original carbon disc wheel now marketed as a specialist triathlon wheel. In some areas it has been superseded by the Super-9.
900 – The 900 is a flat carbon disc wheel suitable for track racing, time trials and triathlons. Its one of the lightest disc wheels in the world.
808 – The 808 is an 81mm carbon wheel set suitable for flatter road racing, time trials and triathlons. It’s available in both tubular and clincher versions.
404 – The 404 is a 58mm carbon wheel and is Zipp’s most popular wheel set to date. It’s a great all round wheel set and is available for both tubular and clincher tyres.
303 – The 303 is another great all round wheel, slightly lighter than the 404 it has a shallower 45mm rim. Its incredible strength and lightweight make it an ideal wheel for cycle cross. There are both tubular and clincher versions available.
202 – The 202 is a lightweight performance wheel built specifically for climbing. Only available with tubular tyres it has a relatively shallow 32mm carbon rim.
101 – The 101 is Zipp’s first aluminium wheel. It still makes use of Zipp’s pioneering aero design but is primarily a training wheel. They’re a great introduction to the Zipp family for any aspiring racer.
