This disc is generally lighter than most aluminum rimmed "climbing" wheels and the low perimeter mass means that it accelerates very quickly and maintains speed with ease. The ultimate in adaptability. The tubular disc was the original product built by Zipp way back in 1988 and it was at that time the lightest and fastest disc wheel available. At just over 950g for a cassette hubbed disc, the days of being concerned about weight are long since over. Consider, a frontal area of only 19mm, patent pending ABLC dimpled surface technology combined with light weight and unsurpassed lateral stiffness result in a wheel that is without equal. The latest round of technical innovations have taken a further 90g out of a wheel that is already one of the lightest and fastest in the business. Since that time it has been re-invented numerous times, each iteration getting lighter, faster and more aerodynamic. Back to Zipp Wheels. The Zipp tubular disc is simply the lightest, most aerodynamically efficient wheel of its kind. The Zipp hub system allows any disc to be either Shimano or Campagnolo compatible, either of them can be converted with a track axle kit for competition on the velodrome.
