Rim Brake Version - Initial Review
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I’ve been running Zipp 202 Carbon Clinchers (rim brake) on my Cross/Gravel bike for about 10 years, alternating with 303’s. Those 202’s have been through the wringer and after having rebuilt the hubs (these are the older V7’s) one too many times and now living here in the PNW I decided to go to aluminum hoops again. Never have had any braking issues in the wet really but until I decide to retire my current cross/gravel rig and go to disc brakes it seems back to aluminum is the way to go. I did a fair amount of research and this Zipp 30 Course seemed one of the best options, though I have to say it seems higher end aluminum/rim brake wheels are getting harder to find. Being a devoted Zipp guy I pulled the trigger on a set. Mounted up the same Schwalbe G-Ones (700x35) that i was running on the 202’s, same Vitoria latex tubes (I’ve not had great experience with tubeless setups frankly) and off we go. One of the reasons I stay with Zipp is that I run primarily Schwalbe and Continental tires and am always able to mount and de-mount tires without levers. This is much nicer in the garage and for sure a lot better out on the road or trail when it’s cold, raining, and you are covered in mud. So off on a 60k gravel ride that I’ve done frequently that includes some short road sections and a couple of steep climbs. The 30 Course seems to have retained the excellent 202 ride quality while at the same time these feel stiffer when climbing and accelerating hard. That may be that my old 202’s are a bit tired and the spoke tension is lower but I suspect it’s got more to do with the new hub set. I’ve had several hub failures over the years and although I’ve always been a big Zipp fan I think one of their biggest advancements in the last few years is hub design. These latest hubs look and feel much more robust and look easier to maintain. So out of the box, 5 stars, now I’ll go beat on them for a while and see how they hold up. One of the reasons I’ve stuck with Zipp carbon rims is I’ve never had one fail, never broken a spoke, and never had one go out of true. We’ll see how these 30 Course do.

Can you plz tell me what a 35mm tires actual width is in these wheels ? Are they closer to an actual 40mm width or true 35?

How about a rim inside width?

Is there a centerlock version of this? I don't want to have to use an adapter..

Those are only available for 6-bolt rotors.

The text says that these are thru axle compatible, which implies to me that they come as regular quick release 100mm front, 135mm rear. However, the tech specs at the side state that the axles are thru axle with the rear being 142mm. Which is correct? I have a 2015 Niner RLT (bought through CC) and I want to upgrade the wheels. My RLT is quick release though, not the thru axle of the later models. I am wondering if these wheels will work. TLDR: Are these quick release?
