202 Firecrest® Tubular Disc-brake

Light weight with massive gains in performance. That’s the story behind the Zipp® 202 Firecrest® Tubular Disc-brake. This is our most durable carbon tubular wheelset for the demands of today’s cyclocross racers and the emerging road-disc rider and racer.

While the original 202 Tubular is a pure climber’s wheel, the 202 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake is so much more. For starters, we’ve created a rim with improved impact resistance that’s also purpose-built for disc brakes. Without having to worry about creating a brake track, our engineers were free to innovate the rim’s design to enhance stiffness, and aero performance while keeping weight low. Aided by our wind-smoothing ABLC™ dimples that extend all the way from the rim’s inner to outer diameters, this 1,330g, wheelset excels at accelerating up to speed.

Borrowing from the longtime CX standard 303 rim design, the 202 Firecrest Tubular rim is wider and has a deeper radius than many other tubulars. This helps with tire stability.

The 202 Tubular Disc-brake wheelset was developed using feedback from professional riders. Multiple U.S. cyclocross national champion Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus), in a conversation during the Zipp lunch ride, discussed the need for a wheelset that was light for the sandy and technically demanding CX courses in Europe that required prolonged bike carries and, once back on the bike, accelerations from low speeds. Powers then tested prototypes of this wheelset in competition, including victory at the national championships.

At higher speeds or out on the road, the 202 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake, with its 32mm deep rim, provides real aero benefit. Firecrest technology provides AeroBalance™, the category leading crosswind stability and low aerodynamic drag that defines all Firecrest wheels. Combine that with the enhanced modulation and stopping power of disc brakes, and you have a wheelset for cyclocross and beyond.

The 202 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake also has a distinctive laser-etched “Firecrest” on the rim’s inner diameter.

To exceed the demands of gravel and adventure road riding, the 202 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake wheelset is laced to Zipp’s 77/177D hubset using Sapim® CX-Ray spokes and secure-lock nipples for increased stiffness and durability in all conditions.
