At 1060g, the Zipp 202 wheelset sufficiently light to put out accelerations on the climb and help you to come out ahead of speedy crit turns. They are pure climbing wheels that happen to ride aero on the flats and downhills. The 202 version has internal nipples, Carbon Bridge technology for greater impact resistance, and an unusually high stiffness considering the low rim profile. These Zipp wheels
have a 23mm wide rim which has been optimized by years of testing in wind tunnel setups. Why 23mm? The tire bed itselt has been enlarged so as to accommodate 22mm wide tires. It has been shown that this new wider format can improve aero performance, when coupling the right tire width with the specified rim width. The Zipp 202 wheels
have been ridden in the Tour de France on the cobble stones, so you know they are strong. They have enhanced impact resistance, shown to be 30% stronger in drop tests. The rim dimples aid with aerodymaics. Zipp rims are embossed for enhanced authentication for you, the owner of these luxury wheels.
