To keep the wheels light and easy to service Zipp used a centre locking brake rotor mounting interface on their 76D/176D hubs. The 76D/176D hubset also features replaceable axle end caps for thru-axle compatibility. Add in the 302’s XDR driver body compatibility, and you have a wheelset that can meet the needs of virtually everyone. And like all of their carbon clinchers, the 302 uses the same rim bed design that makes tire removal and installation as easy as possible.
The 302’s smooth carbon rim is hand assembled to Zipp’s new 76D/176D hubs using Belgian CX-Sprint spokes and brass spoke nipples to build a wheel that is both fast and reliable—tough enough to survive the Spring Classics or the road less travelled, yet light enough to tackle the steepest grades.
302 rims, like all of Zipp's carbon clinchers, are proudly made in Indianapolis. Since Zipp’s inception in 1988, they’ve chosen to handcraft their carbon rims there for one reason: Precision. With complete control of the manufacturing process from start to finish, they build wheels that set the industry standard for precision. Rigorously inspected at the Indianapolis factory, they ensure that only the world’s best wheels receive the Zipp label—and are proud to make this level of quality more attainable than ever with the 302. The 45mm rim depth provides proven aero benefits with high stability, yet the 302 remains nimble to make this a wheel for all terrain and wind conditions.
Each 302 Wheel Includes:
- Zipp valve extenders
- Zipp rim tape
- SRAM XDR driver body for 176D hub available separately
