Great price for an amazing set of wheels.

I have been after a set of 303's and Mantel's price was unbeatable, so it was an easy decision to pull the trigger. This is the first time I have used Mantel and their customer service is second to none. Thanks for a fast delivery a great price. I look forward to doing business with Mantel again.

Fantastic engineering and quality.

Fast and stable, also more comfortable, than the Easton Tempest 2's that they replaced. Great looks and top quality. Brakes are good in the dry, have not been out in the wet yet. I have on old set of 303 rims on campag hubs, I had some problems with the rims around the valve and cracks. Zipp replace and rebuilt the rims free of charge. I bought the wheels with a bike second hand. Mega.

Cons

Detailed product description

The Firecrest profile is characterised by the almost constant rim width, from braking surface to spoke bed. This results in greater control of the airflow and improved aerodynamics. The Zipp 303 Carbon Firecrest is also faster and more stable than other wheels with a comparable rim height.

The Zipp Carbon Clincher technology ensures excellent braking properties. Because of a special kind of resin, inspired by motorsports materials, the rim can withstand the high temperatures that occur during stopping.
