The Zipp Firecrest 202 carbon tubular rim is still a favorite of many climbers due to it's well balanced ratio of ultra-low weight to stiffness. Its low-profile cross-section performs exceptionally well on tricky descents where crosswind handling can be difficult.
To get to the base of the climb, the 202’s 32 mm toroidal profile was developed in the wind tunnel to roll on the flats as efficiently as many 45 to 50 mm rims. After the summit, the 202’s lateral stiffness delivers precise handling on tricky descents and crisp accelerations to finish off the competition.
