Description of ZIPP 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Wheelset 2015 - Matte Black

With the growing acceptance of disc brakes for road bikes comes the need for a true allrounder. One that provides aerodynamics, stability in crosswinds and stiffness at a weight that makes weight weenies delight. The 202 Carbon Clincher Disc-brake is that do-it-all wheelset. The convenience of a carbon clincher, a wide tire bed to accommodate wider tires and 6-bolt disc rotor compatibility make it a sure bet for your on or off road adventures.

The 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains its class leading aerodynamics, durability and impact resistance, making this a perfect wheel for everyday training, racing or the occasional gravel road excursion. At 32 mm deep, the 202 has an aerodynamic resume like wheels twice its depth yet handles better than a shallow box section wheel.

The 188 hub features the same design elements and manufacturing tolerances of all Zipp hubs, now with a 6-bolt disc brake mounting flange. It is built with Zipp's virtual 3X lacing pattern, calling on the strength and aero properties of Sapim® CX-Ray® spokes.

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. ZIPP's 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.

Now, add to that ZIPP's Carbon Clincher technology. This exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power. Combine that with ZIPP's Tangente Platinum brake pads and you have unmatched performance, all with the ease of use of a clincher.

You’ll also see the rim skin is embossed with lot's of dimples of different diameters in a pattern which forces the airflow to form thinner, turbulent boundary layers. This significantly reduces the interference drag. The turbulent layer also adheres to the wheel skin throughout an increased airflow angle of attack, resulting in significantly lower drag in cross-wind situations, which means you have even more control with the ABLC (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) rim. ABLC increases handling performance by minimizing the low-pressure wake left behind the wheel, allowing for greater tire choice with fewer aerodynamic side effects than seen with other designs.

The 202 clincher rear wheel also features an 11-speed freehub optionally available for SRAM/Shimano or Campagnolo. It also features external nipples for an easy service.
