When it comes to optimizing your road bike for speed and performance, White Industries hubs laced up to ZIPP Firecrest rims are a winning combination. Renowned for their lightweight design, exceptional durability, and remarkable smoothness, White Industries hubs are a top choice among cyclists. Pair these with ZIPP rims, known for their lightweight construction and aerodynamic efficiency, and you have a recipe for unparalleled speed.

 

The Climbers’ Delight: Firecrest 202

The Firecrest 202 rim is every climber’s dream. Lightweight, stiff, and incredibly responsive, its low profile design remains unaffected by side winds. Additionally, the rim's redesigned shape minimizes aerodynamic drag. These features, combined with the eye-catching bright pink CLD hubs laced in a 2-cross pattern with Sapim CX Ray spokes and PolyAx nipples, exude a need for speed. While the color might not make you faster, it certainly makes your ride stand out!

The Perfect Pair: Firecrest 303 and 404

In a cycling world increasingly dominated by disc brakes, the Firecrest 303 and 404 rim brake rims stand out. Originally designed for time trials, the 404 rim has been repurposed as an all-day race and training rim suitable for any condition. The 303 rim strikes a perfect balance between climbing prowess and aerodynamic efficiency. Both rims feature ZIPP’s Showstopper brake track, offering industry-leading braking performance in all conditions.

The stunning navy blue T11 hubs are laced radially in the front (18h) and 2-cross in the rear (28h) with Sapim CX Ray spokes and PolyAx nipples. Although technically a mismatched pair, the 303 and 404 rims complement each other beautifully, appearing as if they were made to be together.
