Weighing in at only 1,115 g, the 202 is a versatile racing wheelset that also happens to climb like a mountain goat. Look back through the crucial stages of recent Grand Tours and you’ll find the 202 winning stages, capturing leader’s jerseys and practically floating up the world’s toughest climbs.
The 202 was Alberto Contador’s wheel of choice during nearly every stage on his way to victory at the 2011 Giro d’Italia, proving that it’s a formidable weapon on any terrain. And Zipp triathlete Jan Frodeno won an Olympic gold medal on the 202. Proving its durability, the 202 had even been ridden to a fourth place finish at Paris-Roubaix.
To get to the base of the climb, the 202’s 32 mm toroidal profile was developed in the wind tunnel to roll on the flats as efficiently as many 45 to 50 mm rims. After the summit, the 202’s high lateral stiffness delivers precise handling on tricky descents and crisp accelerations to finish off the competition.
We’ve spec’d the 202 with our 88/188 hubset, improved for 2012 with a wider bearing stance for greater stiffness and available in Beyond Black or Falcon Grey versions. The hubs feature external spoke nipples for easier service with no aero penalty. Zipp’s VCLC™ and Carbon Bridge™ technologies ensure that the 202’s ride is comfortable, smooth and rock solid.
