Race Wheel Rental and Demo Program

Wheel weight and shape have a big impact on how fast you bike. The lighter the rim, the less power the wheel requires to spin up to a certain speed. More aerodynamic rim shapes create smoother airflow that reduces the drag that your bike produces which slows you down. On top of these great benefits is the intangible of ride quality; a high quality pair of carbon race wheels provides a smooth ride experience that you can't describe with numbers.

Available Wheelsets

We have several different wheelset configurations available for rental by reservation for $160 - $210 a week. Click on the images below for a more detailed description of the different wheelsets that we have available.

  • Zipp 202

    Zipp 202 Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 202 Carbon Clincher Wheelset

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    The Zipp 202 Firecrest® Carbon Clincher is all about aiming higher. They took their classic 202 wheelset -- the legendary climber’s companion -- and transformed it into a stiff, lightweight and aerodynamic speed weapon ideal for every road you travel. That’s the power of Firecrest and Carbon Clincher technologies. At 1,380 g, the new 202 is the lightest entry in the Firecrest Carbon Clincher lineup. The Zipp® 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher retains the classic 32 mm rim depth of its predecessor though, with the Firecrest profile, now has a wider 25.4 mm max rim width. The results redefine what’s possible with a do-it-all classic road wheel.

  • Zipp 303

    Zipp 303 Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 303 Carbon Clincher Wheelset

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    In the past few years, the 303 has emerged as one of the most formidable wheels in the pro peloton, with wins in the Tour de France, Paris-Roubaix, the Tour of Flanders, the Amstel Gold Race and more. Its speed, light weight, and utter reliability have been proven in pro cycling’s most demanding races.

    The 303 made history by becoming the first carbon wheelset to win cycling’s two most famous Cobbled Classics, Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. Its wider rim provided extra durability, and improved aerodynamics. That wider rim also led to the development of our revolutionary Firecrest® platform, and now the revolution has come full circle.

    The 303 has been completely redesigned with Firecrest® shaping. The Carbon Clincher preserves the aerodynamic advantages of its tubular brother, while adding the convenience of a clincher tire. And at just 1540g, it’s light enough to climb up the steepest gradients with ease.

    All of the hallmark characteristics of the 303 have improved with the Firecrest Carbon Clincher. The Firecrest shaping optimizes the aerodynamic profile of both the front half and the back half of the wheel. In addition, Firecrest moves the center of pressure of the wheel backwards, giving the 45 mm-deep rim the crosswind stability a box-section rim. At the same time, the 26.4 mm-wide brake track (at center) allows the clincher tire to take on a wider, more stable shape without compromising rolling resistance. It’s faster, simpler, and more stable.

  • Zipp 404

    Zipp 404 Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 404 Carbon Clincher Wheelset

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    Naturally, Zipp chose to launch their groundbreaking Firecrest® and Carbon Clincher designs with their most versatile wheelset, the 404. Its 58 mm rim depth is a classic all-around performer that has carried athletes to victory in every kind of event – triathlons, criteriums, breakaways, field sprints and even Grand Tour mountain stages.

    In fact, their first full-carbon clincher wheelset, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher, has been described as the most heavily anticipated wheelset of all time. And following two years of development for its revolutionary rim shape and carbon technology, they’re confident that the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher lives up to the hype.

    Its Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile carbon clincher design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher weighs just 1,615 grams per set, putting it among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers available.

    Designed specifically to account for the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tires and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher far exceeds the aero performance of any other clincher wheelset in its class. As Zipp proved with the Paris-Roubaix-winning 303 Tubular, a wider rim offers greater vertical compliance for control and comfort on rough surfaces while increasing lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering. The same holds true for Firecrest rims with clincher tires. And because the hook beads are farther apart, the tire itself takes on a more stable shape without adding rolling resistance.

  • Zipp 606

    Zipp 606 Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 606 Carbon Clincher Wheelset

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    Combining the lightweight and climbing capabilities of the 404 in the front with the aerodynamically amazing 808 in the rear, the 606 is the perfect combo for perhaps a lighter weight ride, or a truly windy undulating course.

  • Zipp 808

    Zipp 808 Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 808 Carbon Clincher Wheelset

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    To achieve maximum performance with every wheelset, Zipp engineers created uniquely tuned rim profiles for every combination of rim depth and tire style. So the process of developing the 808 Firecrest® Carbon Clincher was much more complex than merely adding clincher sidewalls to the 808 Tubular or increasing the depth of the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher.

    Optimizing the revolutionary Firecrest aero-rim concept for an 82 mm depth and the distinct airflow pattern of clincher tires required us to evaluate a slew of minutely varied prototypes through CFD, or computational fluid dynamics, software and in the wind tunnel. At 27.5 mm wide, the final version is the fastest deep-section carbon clincher in the world. Yet, with a weight of only 1,795 grams, it more than holds its own on the climbs.

    With Firecrest’s unparalleled approach to the wheel’s center of pressure, the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher also handles crosswinds with the stability you’d normally associate with a much shallower rim – making the 808 Carbon Clincher ideal for non-disc-legal courses like Kona. Plus, the wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any terrain and riding style.

  • 900 Disc

    Zipp 808 and 900 Disc Tubular

    Zipp 808 and 900 Disc – Tubulars

    Availabile Options:

    10 speed tubular.

    Description:

    When Zipp introduced the 900 they changed expectations for disc wheels. Zipp demonstrated that they didn't have to weigh as much as a small dog while offering the stiffness necessary to perform under the world's greatest cyclists. At just 935 g with a cassette hub, the 900 is light enough for the hilliest triathlon or time trial courses.

    The Zipp® 900 disc remains one of the lightest, stiffest disc wheels in the world and was still more than fast enough to help American cycling legend Kristin Armstrong to time trial victories galore.

  • Sub9 Disc

    Zipp 808 and Sub9 Disc Tubular

    Zipp 808 and Sub9 Disc – Tubulars

    Availabile Options:

    10 speed tubular.

    Description:

    In the center of the aero “sweet spot” – a wind angle of 12 to 18 degrees – the Zipp® Sub-9 was the first wheel ever to produce forward lift, when paired with our 21 mm Tangente tire. To achieve this feat, we added a toroidal bulge similar to our spoked rims around the edge of the disc to control airflow at the wheel’s leading and trailing edges. In addition to improving aero performance, the bulge’s vertical compliance keeps the Sub-9 glued to the road when cornering and yields a comfortable ride, hour after hour. This makes it the ideal choice for long-course triathletes to bounce out of Transition 2 for the run with fresh legs after a blistering bike split.

  • Super9 Disc

    808 Front and Super 9 Disc Carbon Clinchers

    Zipp 808 and Super9 Disc – Carbon Clinchers

    Availabile Options:

    10/11 speed carbon clincher.

    Description:

    Game changer. Barrier breaker. The Zipp® Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp is obsessed with aero excellence. After all, their first product was a disc. Zipp’s quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed us to create the Super-9 Carbon Clincher. They have validated their findings in the wind tunnel and refined them further in the “virtual wind tunnel” using powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis. The result? The Super-9 Carbon Clincher optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability -- all with the convenience and low rolling resistance of a clincher.
