Our wheel chart below simplifies our lineup by model, price, and ride type. Suggestions here are for optimized uses for each model. For example, the Firecrest is ready for anything but is optimized for gravel, CX, and road endurance. This is your starting point…. Zipp knows that your commitment to pushing boundaries expands to the places you ride and the events you do.
Right inside the front door you get a bit of Zipp history with a wall of wheels dating back to the beginning as well as some of the other gear Zipp has created. Check out the brakeslickers…. A quick swing up in your vision also reminds you that Zipp had was the first with a Tri-Spoke comp wheel, though unlike a few competitors that cling to the past, Zipp has moved on to better designs. A Formula 1 Composite engineer for the still potent Williams team, Leigh found his way to Speedway Indiana which is genuine hotbed for both Military and racing composite tech and has been for decades. Fast forward a bit and Leigh started Zipp and brought out a carbon wheel that tipped the scales at grams or so.
Zipp was an early pioneer of the carbon cycling wheelset, and in launching the new S wheelset has shaken up the road and all-road wheel market with new technologies, high performance, a lifetime warranty and a price that you wouldn't expect. It is quite refreshing to have a new wheelset released, and especially one from a major brand like Zipp, that doesn't just make claims about wind tunnel aerodynamic performance. The reality is that wind tunnel testing isn't the real world, and figures can be picked and chosen to suit the specific wheel. Instead, Zipp has tried a different approach — one that aims to replicate real riding, looking at all major areas that affect riding speed: wind resistance aerodynamics , gravity, rolling resistance and vibrational losses.
As with most collectibles, the date of manufacture of a Zippo lighter often affects its value. Valuable information on the bottom of every Zippo windproof lighter can help you determine its date of manufacture. The original purpose was for quality control. The date code has since become an invaluable tool for Zippo collectors.
