Zipp Wheels

When it comes to aerodynamics, Zipp wheels have long reigned supreme. Pioneers of carbon rim technology, Zipp wheelsets have a storied history of delivering the world's fastest athletes to the top step of the podium. From the World Tour to the cyclocross World Cup, from Iron Man to the Enduro World Series, from backcountry gravel epics to the local crit circuit— wherever bike racing happens, you're sure to find riders relying on Zipp wheels to go their fastest.

American Made Performance Since Day One

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.

Throughout the 90s, Zipp continued their thirst for speed by being one of the first manufacturers to employ wind tunnels to study and perfect their aerodynamic designs. Their range expanded to more traditionally spoked wheels in their early 400 models. After proving they could make a fast wheel, Zipp's next goal was to prove that carbon rims could be made durable enough to endure the rigors of world tour road racing.

In the early 2000s, Zipp took the next step in that quest, partnering with the CSC Pro team and working closely with riders and mechanics to build a carbon wheelset up to the ultimate task—the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix. From 2010 on, Zipp wheels continued to find repeat success on the most demanding Classics courses and the World Cup cyclocross circuit.

On the road or in the wind tunnel, Zipp has always adhered to the same focus of building the fastest and strongest bike wheels and doing it all in America out of their Indianapolis facility.

Leading the Peloton, Leading the Industry

One thing is for sure, Zipp has never been afraid to push the envelope of innovation, fearlessly finding inspiration for their range of bike wheels in some surprising places. Dimpled rims inspired by golf balls? Sawtooth profiles inspired by whale fins? Single-walled MTB rims inspired by motocross? Strange, unusual, and sometimes controversial, for Zipp, anything is fair game and worth exploring in the quest for more speed. While often met with skepticism, it usually isn’t long before other makers adopt ideas set forth by Zipp.

Speed Within Your Reach

Time and time again, Zipp has proven to build the best and fastest bike wheels in the world. In their latest lineup, they've also come to prove that a premium product doesn't always have to command a premium price. Sure, when you want the works, it'll cost you, as is the case with the brand new 353 NSW wheels, Zipp's lightest ever carbon clincher. But just as impressive is their latest 303 Firecrest—an extremely versatile 45mm tubeless disc-brake wheel that's not only the first of its kind to dip below a 1400g weight but also below a $2000 price tag. Sweet!
