The first climbing wheelset developed in the wind tunnel, the 202 practically floats up the toughest ascents, but it's tough enough and stiff enough for cobbles and crits.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
Despite its astonishing 4th-place finish at Paris-Roubaix where it became the first carbon wheel to even finish the "Hell of the North," the 202's domain is in the high mountains where Carlos Sastre made his Tour-winning assault on the Alpe d'Huez. At 1081 grams per pair, the 202 is well suited to the job of going uphill, but even the most specialised climbing wheel still has to get you to the base of the ascent and back down from the top.
So Zipp designed the 202 in this context. As the first climbing wheelset developed in the wind tunnel, it rolls more efficiently on the flats than most 46-50mm rims. Plus, it's stiff enough to deliver surefooted cornering on the trickiest descents and rapid accelerations to make your attacks even sharper.
For 2009, we've spec'd the 202 with our all-new 88/188 hubset and moved to external spoke nipples for easier service with no aero penalty. As always, Zipp's VCLC and Carbon Bridge technologies ensure that the 202's ride is comfortable, smooth, and rock-solid.
Saris PowerTap: Weighing in at only 416 grams, PowerTap SL's Shimano or Campagnolo compatible hub can be used with virtually any wheel. And because it's so lightweight, it's perfect for racing as well as training, so you're constantly gathering performance data.
All 2009 Zipp wheels (Excludes Disc Wheels) come with Steel Skewers & valve extensions.
