Performance Bike is no stranger to collaborations, but often it’s with exclusive colorways or styles for apparel. Now, they’ve partnered with Zipp for a custom, handbuilt carbon clincher wheelset that’s made at Zipp’s Indiana HQ.
The Performance Bike Wheelhouse 45 uses a 45mm deep carbon clincher rim made by Zipp using most of their tech, including braking surface, high temp resins and aero rim profiles. It’s very similar in shape to the Firecrest 303, but without the exact Firecrest profile and without the dimpled surface. Those are laced to DT Swiss 350 straight pull hubs using Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes and come with Zipp skewers. Retail is $1,899 (on sale as of this post for $1,399). Pics and more below…
The wheels come with Zipp’s Tangente Pro brake pads, plus rim tape and Zipp valve extenders.
Claimed weight is 1,575g. Check ’em out here.
