Zipp 30 Course Alloy Tubular Front Road Wheel
The Zipp 30 Course alloy tubular front wheel is new for 2016. The wide rim profile and new hubset are engineered to deliver speed, stability & comfort over any surface road bikes are tackling these days; smooth (and rough) pavement, gravel or dirt. This is Zipp's first rim-brake tubeless-ready wheelset, providing the ability to run lower tyre pressures without the risk of pinch flats With external 25mm and internal 21mm rim widths, the 30 Course's rim shape incorporates design innovations from the Zipp 202 Firecrest Carbon Clincher profile, resulting in low aerodynamic drag as well as greater stability and predictability in crosswinds The wider rim platform allows for increased air volume, which spreads the tyre casing. This helps increase the contact patch with the ground. The result is improved cornering grip and increased comfort The 30 Course also features the new 77 / 177 hubset, the same now being used in Zipp's pro-proven 202 Tubular and Firecrest rim-brake wheelsets Specification Weight: 665g Rim material: aluminium Rim type: tubular Rim depth: 26mm Rim width: 25mm Hub: Zipp 77 Spoke count: 18 Spokes: CX-Ray, black Bearings: cartridge, stainless steel Max rider weight: 250Ibs Max tyre pressure: 125psi Wheel Size: 700c (622) Rim Depth: Shallow Road: Yes The 30 Course Rim-brake wheelset also includes newly designed quick-release skewers with a wider more ergonomic handle to provide more leverage for opening and closing. When closed, the new lever contours neatly with the frame.
My latest cycling wheels
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
