If perfection is the standard, then the Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher rear wheel delivers everything you could ask for, including a heritage forged in the Spring Classics. At the center of the 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is the 177 rear hub, an innovation that results in improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility.

Zipp's original 303 made history by becoming the first carbon wheelset to win cycling's two most famous Cobbled Classics, Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. Its wider rim provided extra durability, and improved aerodynamics. That wider rim also led to the development of our revolutionary Firecrest® platform, and now the revolution continues with the inclusion of the 177 rear hub – best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed.

Zipp's Carbon Clincher technology preserves the aerodynamic advantages of the 303 Firecrest's tubular brother, while adding the convenience of a clincher tire. And at just 1,645g, it's light enough to climb up the steepest gradients with ease as a go-to all-around wheelset. The Firecrest shaping optimizes the aerodynamic profile of both the front half and the back half of the wheel. In addition, 303 Firecrest moves the center of pressure of the wheel backwards, giving the 45 mm-deep rim the crosswind stability a box-section rim. At the same time, the 26.4 mm-wide brake track (at center) allows the clincher tire to take on a wider, more stable shape without compromising rolling resistance. It's faster, simpler, and more stable.

The new 303 rear Firecrest wheel retains all the small details that make Zipp wheels what they are. Exposed spoke nipples sit in the aerodynamic shadow of the rims, keeping serviceability simple without compromising speed. And Zipp's signature ABLC™ rim dimples squeeze every last second of performance possible. Available in two decal options, the stealthy Matte Black or the distinctive Matte White decals. Each 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, rim tape and quick release. The 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear wheel is a true world beater on the road or the cobbles.
