Light enough to fly up climbs, tough enough to excel in the cobbled classics, and with the industry's best available braking performance for the most technical descents, the 45mm deep 303 NSW is built for a singular purpose: To be fast, everywhere.
But the 303 NSW is no 'race day only' wheelset to be tucked away in a wheel bag until a race number is pinned to the rider's jersey. It's built to take the abuse of everyday training rides. Zipp has achieved this reliability at a lighter weight with a revised carbon fiber layup developed through testing on the famed cobbles of the Forest of Arenberg with the world's fastest riders.
Because the toughest roads often experience the toughest weather conditions, we've included Zipp's Showstopper™ brake track for braking performance that delivers the best modulation and shortest stopping distances in wet and dry conditions. And we've improved aerodynamics with our ABLC Sawtooth™ technology and Impress™ graphics to produce a rim that is as fast as it is stealthy.
At the center of the 303 NSW wheelset is our Cognition hubset. Built to give the lowest rolling friction possible without compromising sealing, the hub's Swiss-made bearings work in tandem with our Axial Clutch™ technology to dramatically cut rolling friction when compared with conventional freehub systems. Bottom line: Cognition hubs make the 303 NSW fast, even when you aren't pedaling.
All of these technologies combine to build a wheelset that only NSW can produce, a wheelset with unrivaled performance. Wherever the road may take you, get there faster on Zipp 303 NSW wheels.
Inside the Axial Clutch mechanism we use magnets, rather than steel springs, to move and engage our light weight Metal injection Molded (MIM) ratchet rings for the most reliable and consistent operation possible. With 36 points of engagement that all interlock simultaneously, there isn't a more secure freehub mechanism on the market.
A star-flanged straight-pull hubshell design on the rear hub distributes the load placed on the hub angle away from the bearings. We’ve also developed a unique scalloped edge hubshell design for our front hub. This scalloped design maintains the bearing bore diameter when high radial spoke tension is applied. Both of these hubshell design elements ensure that bearings quietly stay in place, roll faster, last longer, and provide a laterally stiffer hub. About those bearings, we’ve chosen Swiss stainless steel bearings specially made to our specs to provide the longest lasting, lowest friction performance available.
ABLC SAWTOOTH™ TECHNOLOGY
All Zipp NSW rims are laid up, molded, drilled, and built in Indianapolis by Zipp technicians. Our expert wheel builders then hand lace the rims to our European-made Cognition hubset using Belgian Sapim CX-Ray spokes and Secure-Lock nipples to ensure precision alignment and even spoke tension. The end result is a handcrafted wheelset that stays fast and true for years to come.
