Zipp's history traces back to the late 1980s in the heart of the Indianapolis motor racing scene. Originally an Indy-500 motorsport engineer, Zipp's founder, Leigh Sargent, saw an opportunity to craft a better, faster carbon fiber disc wheel, a project that led to the creation of the Zipp 3000 tri-spoke style front wheel. Quickly drawing acclaim in the triathlon world, Zipp's reputation for creating the fastest bike wheels available was backed by wins at premier events like Kona.
