If you’re headed to Kona, you have the opportunity to upgrade to new Zipp Speed in time for your world championship race.

So come to the Big Island and Trade In, and Speed Up.

We’ve expanded our popular “Trade In, Speed Up” program to include select non-Zipp wheels. This is a wheel trade-in program. Owners of select carbon Zipp and (now) select non-Zipp carbon wheels are eligible to participate. Here’s how it works:

Trade In

  1. Stop by the SRAM/Zipp Store located in the Ironman® Expo before the Kona World Championships. We’re working with HP Bike Works to help customers upgrade to new Zipp wheels in time for the Oct. 12 race on the Big Island.
  2. HP Bike, as an authorized Zipp dealer, will log into its account ( https://www.zipptradein.com/login) with our third-party partner, The Pro’s Closet.
  3. Shop customers then provide their specific wheel model and are given a premium offer.

Speed Up

  1. If The Pro’s Closet accepts your used wheels, that dollar amount is discounted off the sale of new Zipp wheels from that dealer.
  2. Pick up new Zipp wheels.
  3. Ride faster in Kona and beyond!

Stop by the SRAM/Zipp Store located in the Ironman® Kona Expo for your race day needs and to learn about our Trade In Speed Up program.

If you’re not headed to Kona, Trade In, Speed Up also is available in the United States only. Please see your local Zipp dealer to determine if your current carbon Zipp or non-Zipp wheels are eligible for trade in.

Under the “Trade In, Speed Up” program, authorized Zipp dealers in the United States simply create an account through our third-party partner, The Pro's Closet. Shop customers then provide their specific wheel model and are given a premium offer. If accepted, that dollar amount is discounted off the sale of new Zipp wheels from that dealer. The sale of those pre-owned wheels is then handled by The Pro’s Closet, which specializes in selling pre-owned bikes and the highest quality pre-owned parts and accessories. Any Zipp warranty for the original owner does not carry over.

The “Trade In, Speed Up” approach increases the ease and convenience for Zipp customers who are spared the hassle of selling wheels themselves as they upgrade their wheels.

According to The Pro’s Closet, the trade-in value is determined by the resale value of the customer’s existing wheels. The customer’s old wheels will be inspected, cleaned, and serviced by The Pro's Closet and backed by their industry-leading quality assurance for pre-owned cycling products.
