Our 202 Firecrest� Carbon Clincher is all about aiming higher. We took our classic 202 wheelset -- the legendary climber�s companion -- and transformed it into a stiff lightweight and aerodynamic speed weapon ideal for every road you travel. That�s the power of Firecrest and Carbon Clincher technologies. At 1 380 g the new 202 is the lightest entry in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup. The Zipp� 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains the classic 32 mm rim depth of its predecessor though with the Firecrest profile now has a wider 25.4 mm max rim width. The results redefine what�s possible with a do-it-all classic road wheel.
Zipp�s two most profound wheel innovations the Firecrest rim shape and Carbon Clincher technology form the foundation of the new 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Firecrest rims have a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. We used Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis to maximize aerodynamics and minimize wind-produced torque resulting in a 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher that is faster and better handling than a classic road wheel. Our Firecrest rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel�s center of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect.
