Need a stealthy custom Zipp Firecrest track wheel with black spokes and a Phil Wood hub? Want the perfect balance of stiffness and aerodynamics for a steep banked Velodrome? Now you can configure a Zipp Firecrest wheel with the ideal spoke count and hub to meet your track needs.

Whether you race pursuit, Keirin, matched sprint, or endurance events, we have the exact Zipp wheel to help you achieve your goals. Select a rim from our full line of Zipp Firecrest clinchers or tubulars, built with custom spokes, hub and nipples that best fit your training, racing and aerodynamic needs.

Zipp's wind tunnel testing confirms that widening the Firecrest rim and changing the sidewall's curvature profile improves aerodynamics, ride quality and stiffness. Without giving up the proven benefits of the toroidal shape, the wider rim shape moves the center of pressure closer to the rider, providing more stable, predictable handling than rims of equal or even shallower depth.

In both tubular and clincher versions, the wider Firecrest design better protects tires and places more rubber on the ground while cornering without adding rolling resistance. A wider rim offers greater vertical compliance for control and comfort on rough surfaces while increasing lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering.

Select your ideal rim, hub, spokes and nipples and we'll custom hand build your world-class Zipp track wheel.
