The Zipp 202 Firecrest carbon clincher rim is the shallowest and lightest entry in the Firecrest lineup. The clincher rim retains the classic 32mm rim depth of the 202 tubular, but has been redesigned with the wider Firecrest profile.

The versatile 202 (X32) rim offers high lateral stiffness and quick acceleration during sprints and climbs and its low-profile cross-section performs exceptionally well on tricky descents where crosswind handling can be difficult. The rim has a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and reduce drag. Developed in the wind tunnel, the 202s roll on flats as efficiently as many 45 to 50mm deep rims.

The widened tire bed reduces rolling resistance and improves wheel stability by moving the wheel’s center of pressure directly over the steering axis of the bike.

Zipp's exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, effectively tolerates heat buildup during braking, giving the rider reliable stopping power.
