While not (yet) disc brake versions like the last Zipp wheel introduction today, these premium wheels are sure to keep you rolling quickly. For those that are looking for some aero gains, but need something more crosswind stable and lightweight, Zipp has added their 303 wheelset to their Nest Speed Weaponry range. The 303 NSW, like the 404 NSW808 NSW, is the best of tech that Zipp has to offer in this mid-depth 45mm profile. If it is the ultimate in speed against the clock that you are aiming for, Zipp has something else up their sleeve with a limited edition version of their Super-9 Disc rear wheel, sure to make you look good while going fast. Check out the full details of both after the break…

The new 303 NSW shares tech and a similar build from the rest of the Nest wheels. It uses Zipp’s Showstopper brake track which promises excellent brake power and modulation even in wet and dirty conditions and improved aero benefits with the newest ABLC Sawtooth dimple patterning.

Certainly a premium at $3100 for the 142g wheelset, the 303 NSW uses an updated Firecrest shape of the full-carbon clincher-only rim to build a wheelset light enough for climbing but tough enough for riding the cobbles of the northern Sprig Classics. It uses the same straight-pull Cognition hubs that make up the other NSW wheels, with their low-friction Swiss stainless steel bearings and low-resistance, magnet-driven Axial Clutch freehub.

As for the Canyon//SRAM wheels, for a limited time Zipp will offer their fastest Super-9 Disc wheel in a custom finish in the Women’s WorldTour team livery. The carbon time trialing wheel is made in their Indianapolis factory and uses their ImPress printing tech that prints the graphics directly on the wheel for a light and durable finish that doesn’t affect the wheels’ aerodynamics.

The wide and lightweight carbon clincher is typically paired with a 404 or 808 clincher front wheel for a premium time trial or triathlon setup. And now you can either support the Canyon//SRAM team, fly those distinct Rapha designed colors.

The limited edition Canyon//SRAM Super-9 Disc rear wheel will only be available in a Shimano/SRAM 11-speed version (if you need Campagnolo you’ll have to stick with the plain black version. Or you can always pair a Shimano or SRAM cassette with an otherwise Campy drivetrain now that everyone plays nicely with 11-speed spacing.) The colorful 1155g wheel will be available to buy in May 2016 for $2500/2200€/£1625 throuh regular Zipp distribution channels.

In typical form BR is rampantly censoring any recall jabs. Watch for it, it’s coming. We’ll see how long before this comment disappears too. So much for free speech.

To be clear, you do know that whole free speech thing that the First Amendment only protects you from the government punishing you for your speech. It doesn’t protect you from having your comments moderated by a bicycling blog.

With that said, I hope the Cognition hubs are worthy of Zipp rims, something that their previous didn’t quite achieve.

Should we expect these hubs to be recalled as well…..?

So a set of Reynolds Attacks or Assaults are less money, are tubeless, are the same weight, offer a free crash replacement, have not had any issues. Just wondering why you need a pair of Zipps?

And the dimples on a 303 are not making it a faster wheel. The rim depth is too shallow for those dimples to make any difference. It’s just a marketing thing. On a deeper wheel they do work.

Its always fun to believe that bikes companies do things like add dimples just because it markets well, but the reality is that they aren’t going to put dimples on it if they don’t make a difference.
Ive ridden both Reynolds and the new 404 nsw’s. While the Reynolds are nice they don’t really stack up to what zipp has come up with, and I’ve never really been partial to zipp’s.

Not all carbon wheels are created equal. It sill amazes me at this point in carbon technology that people think its all going to be the same. Just as in carbon frames, they engineer and build wheels with different characteristic in mind. Zipps have long been aero forward. other companies pick what ever they feel they want from a carbon rim.
