    When you put the effort in, you want your bike to carry every watt to the tarmac. Zipp’s 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher rear wheel blends an ultra-lightweight design with superior aerodynamics and unyielding lateral rigidity, delivering on its promise for performance.

    Zipp’s proprietary Firecrest rim profile revolutionised the aerodynamic wheel market when it was introduced, and is one of the most copied technologies out there. The Firecrest design not only slices through the air at the front of the wheel, it helps maintain the aerodynamic advantage at the back edge of the wheel as well. Firecrest also helps the rim remain more stable during crosswinds, reducing the side-drag and making sure your steering stays confidently settled and consistent.

    Zipp’s carbon clincher rim technology has been revolutionary in the high-performance road bike world. Zipp use Formula One technology in their carbon fibre resin to make sure the rims are capable of withstanding incredibly high temperatures. During long descents where the brakes get plenty of use, this technology is invaluable. Zipp designed and built a bespoke testing rig to make sure their carbon clincher wheel rims are permanently among the best in the world.

    Evolutionary changes with revolutionary results. The 77/177 hub set is an incredible feat of engineering, where small changes have a big impact. The star-flanged straight-pull hub shell is designed to distribute spoke tension forces evenly, ensuring the bearing bores stay round and smooth. This near-microscopic level of attention to detail is what makes Zipp wheelsets so popular. They’re ultra-reliable, built with incredible precision, and designed for the ultimate performance.

    For more information, and to purchase the matching front wheel, take a look at the Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher front wheel.
