Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheel - Front


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Ultralight carbon rim uses Firecrest® shaping to optimize the aerodynamic profile of both the front and back halves of the wheel
  • This rim shape also offers exceptional crosswind stability for worry-free handling, no matter the direction of the wind; dimpled surface dramatically reduces drag
  • Semi-shallow 32mm rim depth offers less rotational weight for fast-accelerating performance, and with its added aerodynamic advantage, it's a superb all-arounder
  • Wide rim profile increases side-to-side stiffness for responsive climbing, sprinting and cornering; also offers great control, comfort, and strength
  • 18 spokes are laced radially onto the Zipp 88 hub, which uses Swiss-made cartridge bearings with extremely smooth-rolling grade 10 steel balls
  • Oversize 17mm diameter axle delivers significant stiffness for minimal deflection and precise response to input; axle spacing is 100mm
  • The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Front Wheel has a maximum tire pressure of 125 psi (8.62 bar)
  • Please note: This wheel is clincher-compatible only and comes with a quick-release skewer, rim tape, valve extender, Tangente butyl tube and Platinum Pro brake pads
  • Zipp recommends a maximum weight of 250 lbs. (113kg), including rider, bike and gear
