The ultimate in clincher versatility.

Speed, ride quality, and durability. These are the characteristics we look for when researching and testing clincher wheelsets. Sure, there is a plethora of choices when it comes to picking a set of new hoops, but narrowing down what's realistic for your personal needs as a cyclist requires a look into what'll actually benefit your style of riding. This was the reason Zipp built its new 30 Clincher Wheels. It's an everyday, do-anything set of wheels for the demanding cyclist who knows that quality should always go hand-in-hand with a solid value.

Zipp used its quarter-century of wheel developing experience to build the new 30s from the ground up. The new wheels were designed with Zipp's proven aerodynamic principles, using what Zipp calls a 'hybrid toroidal' aluminum rim. This means that it bulges out behind the tire for enhanced aerodynamics. The 'hybrid' part essentially means Zipp uses different manufacturing methods than with its 101 clinchers, such as parallel brake tracks rather than sloped ones Like Zipp's other wider-is-better wheel platforms, the 30mm deep rim profile incorporates a relatively wide 21.5mm rim bed for stability, cornering grip, and overall ride comfort.

At the heart of the wheelset is its new hub design, which is 10- and 11-speed compatible. Because the overarching theme of the new wheelset emphasizes reliability, Zipp wanted to engineer a hub that was built to take a beating and keep on spinning as smoothly as the day the wheels arrived from the factory. To create such a hub, Zipp formed the shell from ultra-strong and lightweight 7075 T-6 aluminum. Stainless-steel bearings were then housed within the hubs, ensuring years of silky-smooth riding. Additionally, Zipp built the hubs with a 'precision set' design, meaning no pre-load adjustment is required -- simply fasten the quick-release skewers and hit the tarmac.

To ensure the wheels were able to handle the toughest road surfaces, Zipp laced the 30s with legendary Sapim CX-Ray spokes. These stainless steel ovalized spokes are far and away the best in the industry. They're lighter than most round butted spokes, and the coining process used to produce their aerodynamic shape makes them stronger and very durable. They are anchored to the rims with Sapim alloy nipples. With 18 spokes up front and 20 in the rear, the wheels are plenty stiff for racing yet still provide a comfortable ride.

The Zipp 30 Clincher Wheels are available in Black with White decals. You'll need to select between Campagnolo or Shimano/SRAM compatible freehub options. They come with rim strips and Zipp steel skewers.

A great wheelset for training

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used these wheels for over a year as my training wheels. They are perfect for training because they are pretty sturdy and require little maintenance. No matter what type of road or weather you throw at this wheelset they will come out unscathed, true and hubs still rolling smoothly.

The front wheel weighs in at 765g and the rear wheel weighs 890g.

Unanswered Question

Do these wheels have sealed bearings or do you have to grease them?

Is a 25mm or 23mm tire recommended for these wheels?

Hey Stuart,

The wider rim width of the 30s would maximize the performance of both tire widths, but each would give you a different ride characteristic. 23mm may be slightly more aero, but the 25mm will grip better and offer a smoother ride. So in the end it is going to be your personal preference. I think smooth is fast, so for myself I find the 25mm tires to roll very quick. Just make sure to check your frame for clearance, however most frames are fine with 25mm these days.

This price its for the set? front and Rear? Set weight please.
