Zipp 303: All-Around Champion
Wheel ships one week after order
48 grams lighter than the 404's, the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clinchers might be Zipp's best rim for building an all-around wheelset. With a rim depth of 45mm, the 303 offers aerodynamic advantages yet are lighter, will accelerate and climb better, and are better for light riders. The Firecrest is even 8% faster than the last generation 303. Not too shabby.
The wheels roll on PowerTap G3 hubs, which will give you all the data needed to help you become a better cyclist, and at an accuracy of +/- 1.5%. Add a PowerTap Joule GPS and companion PowerAgent Software, and you can unleash your freak any time you want, wherever you want, and you'll always be able to find your way home afterwards.
"I used to believe in training on your training wheels and racing on your race wheels, not putting the race wheels on your bike until a ride or two before the race. I now no longer believe that." Read more from Dan Empfield on Slowtwich.
