2018 Zipp 303 Firecrest Tubular Disc Road Bike Wheelset 1400g

With the 303 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake wheelset, you’re at the helm of a serious Speed Weapon that helps speed up and smooth out even the most chaotic courses. This is the top choice of our pro cyclocross racers. At the center of the wheelset  is Zipp’s 77/177D hubset, an innovation that results in improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and usability.

The 77/177D hubset is the perfect compliment for the leading aerodynamics, ride quality, stability and rim strength of Zipp’s Firecrest rim technology. That means you get the unmatched performance of the 45mm-deep 303 Firecrest rim proven with victories multiple victories at Paris-Roubaix, the Tour of Flanders and pro cyclocross races. And when it’s time to scrub off speed or stop, you won’t have to tense up and ‘grab a handful.’ You have the consistency and power of disc brakes – precision modulation and stopping power is at your fingertips. On top of that, the revised 303 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake wheelset is 35 grams lighter than its predecessor.

About the 77/177D hubset

The 303 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake wheelset comes with a standard 10/11 speed driver body for SRAM®/Shimano® or for Campagnolo®, allowing you to run a wide range of cassettes. For those looking for a wider gear range, or tackling especially extreme terrain, a SRAM XDR driver body for 177D (sold separately) is easily installed to allow for more cassette options. A 1.85mm spacer is included with the XDR driver body and is required for use on the 177D hub. XDR driver body compatible with 11-speed cassettes only.

About 303 Firecrest rim technology

In developing the original 303 wheelset, Zipp discovered that a wider rim increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering while also providing greater vertical compliance for greater control, comfort and durability. That wider rim profile led us to develop our Firecrest technology, which revolutionized aerodynamic efficiency and stability for carbon wheels. The proprietary Firecrest rim shape optimizes the aerodynamic profile of the front half and – here’s the revolutionary part – the back half of the wheel. Firecrest moves the wheel’s center of pressure to be more in line with the steering axis for stability in even the stiffest crosswinds.

Each wheel includes 2 sets of Zipp thru-axle end caps, 1 Zipp skewers, 1 rolls of Zipp rim tape 700c x 20mm and 1 Zipp valve extenders. Rear wheel includes 1.85mm spacer for use with 10-speed cassettes.
