Zipp’s 303 Firecrest Tubular offers game-changing innovations for performance-minded cyclists. This wheelset was developed to meet the needs of our sponsored professional racers as well as any cyclist who prefer the time-proven ride qualities of riding tubulars.
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® technology. Throughout its history, the 303 has consistently served as a go-to wheelset for pros that need a versatile wheel offering an outstanding blend of aerodynamic performance and stability, climbing agility, and outstanding durability on rough roads and cross courses.
The cycle of innovation continues with the inclusion of the 77/177 hubset – best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed.
Optimized flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim® CX Sprint spokes to optimize torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness.
Includes quick-release skewers with a wider more ergonomic handle to provide more leverage for opening and closing. When closed, the lever contours neatly with the frame.
For those looking for a wider gear range, or tackling especially extreme terrain, an XDR 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 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 includes:
Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads
Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench
