The qualities that make the Zipp Firecrest ideal for the cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix also make the ultimate cyclocross cantilever/rim brake CX wheelset. The Firecrest wide rim profile dampens vibration on rough trails and reduces the chance of damage from major impacts.

Zipp Firecrests have landed Katie Compton, Todd Wells, Tim Johnson and Jeremy Powers at the top of the podium at the USGP, US National Championships, and the World Cup.

The wider Firecrest rim is lightweight, durable and provides excellent lateral stiffness for cornering on technical courses and powering over short steep hills. Get the edge over your CX competition with a Zipp Firecrest build.
