The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake wheel is all about new technology and new adventure: a new chapter for road bikes. This benchmark wheel is now improved with the durable and versatile 77D hubset, meaning that it is now thru-axle compatible.
The Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake delivers the enhanced modulation and stopping power of disc braking, whether you stay on the road or venture into less tame territory. At 32mm deep utilizing Zipp’s revolutionary Firecrest design, this wheel has the aerodynamic resume of wheels twice its depth yet handles more predictably than a shallow box-section wheel.

To exceed the demands of gravel and adventure road riding, the 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake wheel also is laced using Sapim® brass nipples for increased stiffness and durability in all conditions. The 77D hubset is surrounded by two most profound wheel innovations: the Firecrest rim shape and Carbon Clincher technology. Firecrest rims have a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. Zipp used Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis to maximize aerodynamics and minimize wind-produced torque, resulting in a 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Brake wheel that is faster and better handling than a classic road wheel. The Firecrest rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel’s centre of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect.
