The Climber's Wheelset — Zipp 202 NSW Carbon Clincher
These Zipp NSW 202 Carbon Clinchers come from Zipp's Nest research and development team. They took their lightest carbon clincher, the 202 Firecrest, and made them lighter, stiffer and stronger than ever. Weighing in at 1,375 grams for the pair, the updated ABLC (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) dimpling improves aerodynamic performance and crosswind stability, while the ShowStopper brake track ensures you'll stop exactly when you want to.
The 32mm deep rims are laced with 18 front / 24 rear Sapim CX-Ray straight pull spokes to the improved Cognition Hubset. The rear hub houses the XD-driver compatible Axiom Clutch freehub body, doing away with the standard 3-pawl ratcheting freehub body and opting for a drag-reducing 36-tooth magnetic-operated freehub that disengages while you coast. There is a star-flanged hub in the rear and a scalloped hub shell up front, increasing durability and reducing load on the stainless steel Swiss bearings.
