If perfection is the standard, then the Zipp 303 Firecrest tubular rear wheel delivers everything you could ask for, including a heritage forged – and still thriving – in the world's toughest races. At the center of the 303 Firecrest Tubular 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. The 303's wider rim provided extra durability, and improved aerodynamics. That wider rim also led to the development of our revolutionary Firecrest platform platform that further reduces aerodynamic drag while increasing crosswind stability. For those looking for a wider gear range, or tackling especially extreme terrain, an XD driver body for 177 is sold separately and easily installed to allow for more cassette options including a 10-42. The hubset is designed to swap driver bodies without re-dishing the wheel.

The Firecrest shaping optimizes the aerodynamic profile of both the front half and the back half of the wheel. In addition, Firecrest moves the center of pressure of the wheel backwards, giving the 45mm-deep rim the crosswind stability a box-section rim. And because the 303 Firecrest's 26.45mm-wide brake track (at center) has been optimized for wider tires, the ride quality is better than ever. The new wheels retain 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. Each 303 Firecrest Tubular wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, and quick release. Zipp recommend checking for clearance, especially on TT frames. 

For unparalleled performance for your tubular tyres, the Zipp 303 Firecrest Tubular Rear wheel is the best option available.
