Race Wheel Rental 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.

Rental Details

  • Rental wheelsets are $160 ($210 for wheelsets with a disc) per week and are reserved on a first come basis. This price covers the week long rental period from Wednesday through the following Tuesday and also covers labor involved with swapping the cassette and adjusting the shifting. *Bikes that contain proprietary brake calipers may incur additional labor charges to ensure that the brakes function properly. Wheelset can be picked up at the shop on Wednesdays starting at 10 am or at any later time in the rental period.
  • All rentals require payment in full at time of reservation. Rentals are non-refundable as your reservation means we are turning away others who would like to rent wheels.
  • If the date you need to rent is not shown in the rental catalog, that means the wheelset you are viewing has already been reserved for that weekend. Dates shown for reservations are from Mid-May to Mid-October. Please call us at 952-473-0093 for early or late season rentals.
  • All rental wheels must be picked up in store. If you are ordering only race wheels choose "Pick Up at Store" to avoid shipping cost. If you have placed additional items in your cart you may select another shipping option but your wheelset will still be held for in store pickup.


ZIPP 303

ZIPP 303The 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

The 404 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

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

Optimizing the revolutionary Firecrest aero-rim concept for an 82 mm depth and the distinct airflow pattern of clincher tires required ZIPP 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.

ZIPP Super 9

Zipp Super 9 Disc

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 them 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 and paired with a Zipp 808 front wheel.
