Zipp 303 Rim Shapes

More Zipp wheels here

 

New from Zipp and not yet available the 303 clicnher is back and this time in a lighter more aero all carbon format.

 

Firecrest shape with all carbon rims the 303 has been a longtime favorite for Zipp buyers. It's the perfect combination of aerodynamics, weight, comfort and reliability.

 

The new 303 remains 45mm deep and get's the bulbous Firecrest rim profile that’s 28.5mm at widest and 26.2mm at the brake track.

 

Improved aerodynamics by about 8% over the prior model, giving it about a 78 second advantage over a 40km TT compared to a square-ish alloy rim (30mph at 300watts with 15 degree frontal crosswind)

 

Zipp are also offering a hub color option for 2012 so either black or the original grey/silver

 

Weight of the 303 clincher is a claimed 1500grams

 

Wheels will ship with a pair Zipp's new carbon specific brake pads that are silver in color and promise to be yet another improvement in carbon braking performance.
