Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake 700c Rear
$1,050.00
Zipp's 303 Firecrest Tubeless wheels are designed for the real world—a world of imperfect conditions, varying road surfaces, and elements where the bottom line is simple: efficiency = speed. They're faster, lighter, and more capable over varied terrain—whether the surface is pavement in all its conditions or no pavement at all. Deeply rooted in Zipp's drive to conquer the Spring Classics, the new 303 Firecrest is remade with a purpose-made approach for the demands of modern road bikes. When it comes to going fast on a bicycle, efficiency means reduced wind resistance, rolling resistance, rider fatigue, and weight. The 303 Firecrest Tubeless Disc-brake was designed using real-world direct measurements (vs. primarily wind tunnel or computer simulation). The results were huge. Its rim is slightly more bulbous in design than its predecessor, with a 32mm outside width, a 25mm internal width, and a 40mm rim depth. The profile provides low drag and an improved transition between rim and tire, boosting aero efficiency on the road. The wide rim stance also features less tire deflection for reduced rolling resistance. The combination of the wider tire, increased tire volume, and lower tire pressure helps to reduce rider fatigue by smoothing out the ride over imperfect pavement and road conditions—the tire and wheel system absorbs the shaking, not the rider. At the center of the 303 Firecrest Tubeless is a versatile and durable new hubset, the German-engineered ZR1 DB. This hubset features 66 points of engagement for quicker response. The 303 Firecrest Tubeless wheels are for dedicated cyclists who aspire to the latest in technology. They're for those who compete in races, against peers, or simply to conquer personal limits. - New Zipp graphics and cosmetic identity that scream speed - Versatile endurance wheelset for the modern road bike with tubeless and hookless rim profile - Lighter weight than its predecessor, making it nimble and fast - Tubeless Made Easy, optimized tire bed sign allows for simple tool-free installation and removal with no need for an air compressor to seat the tire. - Ultra-wide 25mm rim profile creates a better tire interface to be fast on or off the road - 40mm rim depth makes a light and aero wheel in every situation - Ships with 12mm end caps - Center Lock rotor interface (lockring included)

ENVE G23 ENVE Alloy Hub Wheelset
$2,550.00
What It Is The G23 is the definition of a true gravel wheelset. At 330 grams, ENVE's lightest 700c tubeless rim accelerates quickly and ascends with ease. Armed against pinch flats with the patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead, the G23 is tough and relentless on road, path, or trail. The G23 is a 700c tubeless carbon clincher wheelset with a generous 23mm internal width, specifically conceived to meet the performance and ride quality demands of serious mixed-surface cyclists. Who It's For Created for those seeking to discover new experiences, new terrain, and new challenges. Built to reflect the versatility of today's gravel and mixed surface riders, these wheels will excite ambitious, daring, and indomitable riders everywhere. If your path leads to classics like Dirty Kanza, Landrun, Crusher in the Tushar, or a new wave of events like Grinduro or Lost and Found, the G23 is your wheel. Why We Made It There is a place between road and mountain that is open to discovery. Beyond the range of your trail bike or the capabilities of your road bike. Terrain littered with contradicting challenges and demanding requirements are at odds with the bikes and products available today. We built the new G23 to thrive in this new environment, because insights gained through building the world's best road and mountain bike rims told us that the perfect combination did not exist in our stable, or in our opinion, anywhere at all. The higher volume and lower pressures would demand MTB toughness and flat resistance, while big days and long miles would require the lightweight and efficiency of a road machine. Above all, the combination of rough and rigid would require a wheel with the ride quality to make those long miles enjoyable and multi-day treks possible.
ENVE SES 3.4 AR Disc Enve Alloy Hub Wheelset
$2,550.00
What It Is The SES 3.4 AR is the embodiment of the modern disc brake-only road wheelset. Aerodynamically optimized for high-volume tires (28 - 32mm), lightweight for long days in the mountains, high volume for all roads, and arguably the most versatile wheelset ENVE has ever made. Science & Insight In 2016 we launched the SES 4.5 AR, a wheelset ahead of its time. Since then, road riders, frame manufacturers, and tire makers have all caught the high-volume vision which has propelled the one-of-its-kind 4.5 AR to be our most popular wheel in North America where the high-volume all-road movement has gained the most traction. As more bikes are created that can accommodate tire clearances up to 32mm, we saw the need to create a more versatile, climber-friendly SES AR wheelset, and the SES 3.4 AR was born. Points of Differentiation - Real-world aerodynamics, optimized around 28mm to 32mm tubeless tires - Wide, Hookless Bead Anti-Pinch Flat Technology - Disc brake-specific materials and construction - Low weight leader in category - Tubeless-only design
ENVE SES 3.4 Disc ENVE Alloy Hub Wheelset
$2,550.00
ENVE's most well-rounded road wheelset, the SES 3.4 is a climber with an aero edge. It's just the right depth to cover steep grades at speed. Since its introduction in 2009, the Smart ENVE System 3.4 has established itself as ENVE's most versatile and consequently most popular carbon fiber aero road wheelset amongst road cyclists of all abilities. The new SES 3.4 is wider than its predecessor (27.5mm wide external, 21mm internal) to improve rolling resistance and improve aerodynamics for use with 25mm tires and is available in both rim and disc brake models. In addition to added width, the versatile and reliable nature of the SES 3.4 has been augmented by incorporating road tubeless tire compatibility. Road tubeless compatibility means improved rolling resistance, comfort, traction, and a reduced propensity for flat tires. Like all SES models, the SES 3.4 features dissimilar rim shapes and geometries between front and back wheels to maximize aerodynamic efficiency and rideability in variable weather conditions. The front rim is 38mm deep and shallower than the rear rim to aid in crosswind stability while the rear rim is 42mm deep and therefore improves overall airflow attachment. - Intended Use: Road - Inner Rim Width: 21mm - Aero Optimized Tire Size: 25c - Rim and Disc Brake Models Available - Tubeless Optimized; Tube Compatible DISC BRAKE TECHNOLOGIES GO FAST; STOP FAST: The SES 3.4 Disc features a disc brake-specific carbon fiber rim design. In other words, this is not simply a rim brake model with no brake track. Each SES Disc rim features a disc brake-specific laminate to ensure optimal performance on disc brake-equipped road, cyclocross, and triathlon bicycles. As a result of disc brake-specific engineering the SES 3.4 Disc is substantially lighter than its rim-brake counterpart but equally as stiff and impact resistant. This is accomplished because we are able to deploy the carbon fiber that previously served the requirements for heat management to now serve the requirements for stiffness and durability. Need to know: - Disc-specific construction with no brake tracks - Rims are lighter by 40-60g per rim - Impact resistance increased - Greater lateral stiffness TUBELESS COMPATIBLE SPEED, COMFORT, PROTECTION: Greater speed, comfort, grip and puncture resistance – what's not to like about road tubeless? With the selection of a high performance tire at the right pressure, you can achieve lower rolling resistance and more speed. Tubeless also allows you to run much lower tire pressures for far greater comfort, traction, and efficiency, especially over poor road surfaces and gravel, all without sacrificing speed. The potential for pinch flats and, with sealant, debris punctures is all but eliminated. ENVE recognized early that road tubeless technology is here to stay and we drew on our years of experience making the world's best mountain bike wheels to optimize the SES range for tubeless (excluding the current SES 4.5). With rims going wider and frames giving more tire clearance, the key aspects of bike design were aligned to make tubeless the best choice: wider rims make it easier to mount tubeless tires. Disc brakes add even more benefits for tubeless, typically allowing larger tires as well as removing issues of heat at the rim. Need to know: - Tubeless optimized design - Faster rolling - Higher grip - Greater comfort - Outstanding puncture resistance
ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc Clincher ENVE Alloy Hub Wheelset
$2,550.00
The wheel that first merged aero with high volume tires, designed to make you faster on all road surfaces. Proven on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix. - Intended Use: Road, All-Road - Inner rim width: 25mm - Aero Optimized Tire Size: 27 – 32c - Tubeless-only AERO FOR ALL ROADS The SES 4.5 AR is an uncompromising aero wheel designed specifically for disc brake equipped bikes and large volume 27 to 30mm tubeless road tires. Rebellious, unconventional, and pioneering are words that describe the one of its kind SES 4.5 AR. Conceptualized for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix through our partnership with Team Dimension Data, the SES 4.5 AR was developed to deliver top shelf aero performance, stability, and comfort for virtually any road surface. The SES 4.5 AR is available as a tubeless clincher and tubular model rim. The SES 4.5 AR borrows from ENVE M Series carbon mountain wheel tubeless technology and features hookless beads. Hookless beads improve aerodynamic performance by aiding airflow from tire to rim as well as allow for the best tubeless tire performance possible. Like all Smart ENVE System aero wheels, the front and rear rims are specifically designed for the airflow seen at the front and back of the bike. As such, the front rim is more shallow and wider to maximize stability and the rear is deeper and narrower to aid in drag reduction. In addition to dissimilar geometries, the SES 4.5 AR features a disc brake specific construction that saves weight, improves strength, and creates an unprecedented ride quality.
ENVE SES 5.6 Disc Clincher ENVE Alloy Hub Wheelset
$2,550.00
What It Is The ultimate disc brake-specific, aerodynamic, lightweight road race wheelset. Who It's For The SES 5.6 Disc is optimized aerodynamically and structurally for disc use. Road cyclists and triathletes on disc brake bikes will benefit from the SES 5.6 Disc's reduced drag, lightweight design, and rim shape optimized for larger-volume road tires. Why We Made It Most "disc brake" wheelsets are simply repurposed rim brake wheels with disc hubs. The elimination of a braking surface opens up the realm of aerodynamic and structural possibilities. When you don't have to engineer a flat braking surface and manage high temperatures from braking, you can reduce the rim's weight, adjust shape for improved aerodynamics and provide better tubeless performance. Full Details Disc brake technology offers improved braking performance for amateur and professional road cyclists alike. Carbon fiber braking surfaces are a major design constraint that limits weight savings and rim design. By removing the constraints of a braking surface, we can completely rethink the shape of the rim. The SES 5.6 Disc features patented SES rim curvature, but has been further optimized for disc brakes. Additionally, the SES 5.6 Disc carbon fiber clinchers and tubulars are very lightweight, because the material used for rim brake heat management has been eliminated. This allows for a more structurally efficient and impact-resistant rim. Finally, the SES 5.6 Disc carbon clincher is road tubeless-compatible and can still be run with standard inner tubes and tires. Like the current generation SES carbon clinchers and tubulars, the 5.6 Disc has been aerodynamically optimized around 25mm tires.
