ZIPP’s famous for making one of the crucial fastest wheels at the road, but it is taking things to the following level with the 202 Carbon Clincher Disc Brake wheel. To take advantage of your speed, it’s a must to harness serious stopping power, and ZIPP’s done that by setting the 202 as much as ridden with disc brakes, which increase modulation, respond right away, and work in all conditions, so you’ll be able to ride harder and with more confidence.After all, for the brakes to matter you want as a way to hit high speeds within the first place. ZIPP redesigned the 202 with its Firecrest carbon-fiber technology, which decreases air resistance, increases stiffness, and boosts the 202’s speed and stability at the descent. By widening the rim fairly, ZIPP increased traction and stability even as decreasing rolling resistance, and used complex computer simulations to determine that the added width could also be a good option for clincher-style wheels. The carbon is microscopically dimpled, like a golf ball, to scale back drag, and the form of the 202 is designed to excel in real-world crosswinds, no longer just controlled laboratory conditions.If you are psyched in regards to the increased convenience of a most sensible-shelf clincher, you may also be worried about its smoothness, in comparison to a tubular wheel. Do not be. ZIPP fused an aluminum hoop to the carbon structure, which acts as a gentle spring to smooth out road vibration, and inserted a magical viscoelastic Subject material between the carbon laminates to further smooth out your ride. Topping things off, ZIPP hooked the 202 up with ZIPP 88 and ZIPP 188/V9 front and rear hubs, respectively, and strung the wheels with Sapim X-Ray stainless-steel spokes. Titanium skewers lock the wheels on on your dropouts, and Swiss Steel bearings keep you spinning smoothly for thousands and thousands of miles. The 202 is compatible with six-bolt disc brake rotors only–no rim brakes here–and is intended for riders weighing as much as 250lbs.
