Description of ZIPP 303 Firecrest Carbon Showstopper Front Wheel - Tubular - QR - black

Zipp's 303 Firecrest Tubular wheels offer fresh innovations for performance minded cyclists. Retaining their versatile 45mm rim depth, the 303 Firecrest now feature construction upgrades that deliver improved impact resistance. The wheels also borrow key features from Zipp's halo-level NSW lineup. The ABLC Sawtooth dimple design reduces high yaw drag and improves crosswind stability. The Showstopper brake track delivers a great braking performance with the best modulation and shortest stopping distances in wet and dry conditions. These innovations enhance the wheelset that has been podium-proven to take their performance to the next level.

The symmetrical rim is completely made of carbon for a high sprinting stiffness at an extra low weight. The wheel is equipped with a Zipp 77 hub and 18 radial laced Sapim CX-Ray spokes.



Showstopper™ is a complimenting pairing of a directional, molded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin. Includes 317 groves on each side of the wheel that are directional to wheel rotation to increase stopping power and help clear away water from the braking surface. Delivers equal braking force in wet conditions when compared to industry leading aluminum rims.

ABLC™ (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control)

Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of Zipp's carbon rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim's surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Super-9 Disc. The third-generation of ABLC has up to four times more dimples than before.

VCLC™ (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control)

Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) uses a vibration-absorbing material sandwiched between layers of rigid carbon laminate in the rim. When the wheel receives an impact from the road, much of the shock is absorbed by the VCLC system, delivering a 10% reduction in vibration.

Carbon Bridge™

Carbon Bridge uses a Kevlar® thread in a co-axial helix stitch to bind sheets of carbon to each other in Zipp's tubular rims. Because Kevlar is 350% more impact resistant than carbon, it can disperse shock more evenly throughout the carbon laminate, making for a rim that is practically bulletproof. In particular, Carbon Bridge reduces the vulnerability of the rim's tire bed, the area most susceptible to damage from impact.
