2018, Zipp, 303 / 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Tubeless Disc



If you are the type who likes to have it all, then putting the Zipp 303 and 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Tubeless Disc Brake wheelset on your road bike will be about as close to nirvana as you can get.

This combo of high performance wheels offer the ultra amount of durability and convenience for race-ready wheels. Going with 303s in the front and 404s in the rear won’t only look totally pro, it will make it possible for you to balance aero gains, weight gains and crosswind concerns. Since these are the Zipp Firecrest, you can definitely count on them being seriously stable in cross winds. That’s thanks in large part to the wind tunnel developed shape of the rims. Nevertheless, there is no denying that the 58mm profiles of the 404s are apt to catch a touch more sidewind than the 45mm 303s. Which is one great reason to stick the 303s up front and the 404s in the rear, where the effects on the handling will be much less significant. The wider rim depth of the 303s in particular also means that you can run wider tires which will add to the stability of the shape without compromising rolling resistance. These will work best with 28mm tires and greater, both aerodynamically and in terms of increased comfort. Win-win situation there.

Designed for disc brakes from scratch, these are not rim brake rims that have just been readjusted to accommodate disc brakes. That means that things like the brake track, an area that typically calls for a great deal of material to keep it robust and functioning, could receive a much lighter carbon layup. It also means that Zipp could extend their aero dimples right to the edge of the rim, making these even more aerodynamically efficient than rim brake Firecrests.

Focusing on making them tubeless compatible, the Zipp engineers searched for the most efficient rim width and depth that would also be able to withstand the different forces that working with tubeless tires requires. To ensure tubeless compatibility, the rim bed has internal ridges that lock the tire’s bead in place, allowing you to run low tire pressures. The engineers took special care with the carbon layup in order to ensure the stiffness, rigidity and durability of the wheels, without adding weight. But they knew that a lot of their customers would be wanting to use these tires on some gravel adventures, so they ensured a carbon to resin mix that would live up to the highest Zipp expectations. Adding to the stiffness and responsiveness of the wheels, a robust 77D/177D hubset has been paired with 24 Sapim CX-Ray spokes in the front and rear.

The hubs come with swappable end caps to work with QR’s and through axles, including 12x100mm and 15x100mm front through axles as well as 12x142mm rear through axles. The 177D rear hub is also XDR driver body compatible for use with SRAM 10-42 cassettes.

Building up your bike with a combo Zipp 303 and 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Tubeless Disc Brake wheelset will make any racing or gravel bike the envy of all your cycling buddies. And you’ll enjoy all the benefits of performance and practicality in this ultimate wheel package.
