Description

You feel comfortable in the hills with the Zipp 202 Firecrest Tubular. Because of its low weight, you can win seconds uphill, but also on flat roads, he accelerates very fast. The tubular version reacts more directly because the tube (tyre) is glued to the rim, minimising the deformation of the carcass, resulting in a more direct wheel. The classic 'do-it-all' 202 Firecrest wheelset is equipped with Zipp's new 77/177 hubs. These hubs have an adapted flange geometry and spoke attachment. This ensures higher torsional and lateral rigidity.

Brilliant wheels, exceptionally quick.

Very lightweight and fast. Much prefer to the 404, which were the best wheels I had ridden until I got these. No faults with them, just brilliant.

Detailed product description

The Firecrest profile is characterised by an almost constant rim width, from the brake surface to spoke bed. This results in having more control over airflow and improved aerodynamics. The Zipp 202 Carbon Firecrest is, therefore, faster and more stable than other wheels with similar rim heights.

This wheelset is equipped with the 77/177 hubs. These hubs have end caps that you can remove by hand to mount the new standard 12X100 on the front or even a 15X100 fit. You can then assemble a 12X135 or a 12X142 to fit the hub in the rear wheel. These hubs are cheaper, lighter and perhaps most important: they can be used on a wider scale than the old 88/188 hubs. So, from now on you can ride with a through axle or quick release.

ABLC TECHNOLOGY
Zipp ABLC technology maximises the advantages of Zipp's patented Firecrest rim profiles. The ABLC rim profile with pits in the rim creates small swirls that conduct airflow inward, which causes the airflow to pass tightly along the rim and causes fewer swirls behind the rim.
