Features and Information
For maximum aerodynamic efficiency and an incredibly fast ride, Zipp's carbon rims have a dimpled outer surface that minimizes drag.
Zipp's Visco-elastic Constrained Layer Control takes away the harsh ride of deep-dish carbon rims by sandwiching a layer of viscous material in between two layers of structural carbon, reducing road vibration by up to 10%, giving you a ride that is both blazingly fast and decadently smooth.
Zipp's clincher wheels use their Multi-Material Co-Molding (M2CM) process that seamlessly bonds the aluminum extrusion to the carbon rim for superb braking and extraordinary strength.
