Introducing the 454 NSW Disc brake and 302 Carbon Clincher

No matter how you choose to ride, Zipp has a wheel to meet your needs. We engineer wheels for the world’s fastest racers and aspiring cyclists seeking improvement with every ride. To that end, Zipp is proud to announce three new wheelsets—our range-topping 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc-brake, and two wheelsets that redefine value in the carbon wheel market, the 302 Carbon Clincher Disc-brake and 302 Carbon Clincher Rim-brake.

Radical by design, evolutionary by nature

454 NSW™ Carbon Clincher Disc-Brake

Zipp engineers have optimized the biomimicry-derived 454 NSW for the ultimate in all conditions braking control—disc brakes. This marks the first NSW wheelset available for disc brakes, offering cyclists the greatest AeroBalance with the superior modulation and stopping power of disc brakes.

Achievable Speed

302™ Carbon Clincher Rim Brake and 302 Carbon Cincher Disc brake

Based on the winning wheels of the Spring Classics, comes the all-new 302 Carbon Clincher. With a 45mm deep Indianapolis-made carbon rim, optimized for low aerodynamic drag and precise handling in all riding conditions, the 302 Carbon Clincher and 302 Carbon Clincher Disc brake deliver the ride that Zipp wheels are renowned for at a price that makes Zipp carbon quality and performance more attainable than ever. The 302’s smooth carbon rim is hand assembled to Zipp’s new 76/176 hubs (76D/176D for disc brake version) using Belgian CX-Sprint spokes and brass spoke nipples to build a wheel that is both fast and reliable—tough enough to survive the Spring Classics or the road less travelled, yet light enough to tackle the steepest grades.
