2017 Zipp 302 Rear Carbon Clincher Wheel
The 302’s smooth carbon rim is hand assembled to Zipp’s new 76/176 hubs using Belgian CX-Sprint spokes and brass spoke nipples to build a wheel that is both fast and reliable—tough enough to survive the Spring Classics or the road less traveled, yet light enough to tackle the steepest grades. The 302 also features the same rim bed design as our other carbon clinchers to make tire removal and installation as easy as possible. The 76/176 hubset’s axle end caps and rear freehub can be removed without tools for quick and easy cleaning and lubrication. Additionally we’ve selected a J-bend spoke design for easy sourcing of replacement spokes. And like all of our carbon clinchers, the rim bed of the 302 is designed to make installing and removing tires fast and easy. Experience Zipp speed with the 302.
