NEW ZIPP Wheels - Carbon, Rim Brake, Tubless and bad ass???

THE NEXT EVOLUTION...

Those are pretty big words coming from one of the top wheel makers in the world. But according to the press release, ZIPP is throwing in all the cool stuff that is relevant and functional for todays racer or recreational rider. CARBON, CLINCHER and TUBELESS. Now you have our attention...

Carbon - Its hard to debate the benefit of carbon wheels on a road bike, smooth, aero - in ZIPPS case anyway, stiff and control.  Need we say more? 

Clincher - Why? Because everyone makes clincher tires. Clinchers are easier to obtain, reasonably priced, easier to service and offer more choices than you can name.

Tubeless - Tubeless set up has come a long way since it was first introduced 10 years ago. The new tubeless set ups ride better, give you infitinite flexibility of tire choices since you can still run a tubed set up if you like, you can run lower tire pressure for comfort and control without sacrificing rolling speed.

ZIPP is also rolling out 3 wheel sets to choose from: (Note, Bicycle World TV has not tested these wheels). It should be noted that the prices of these wheels seems very very fair for the miles of enjoyment and performance you will get out of them.
