Great that you're interested in our carbon wheels for tubular tires! Here's what you need to know about them:

Lightweight and Fast: Our carbon wheels are designed for tubular tires, which means they are lighter than traditional wire bead tires. This makes your bike more agile and accelerates faster.
Professional Performance: Many professionals prefer tubular tires because they offer an impressive combination of performance and reliability. With our carbon wheels, you'll get the most out of your bike.
Smooth Riding Experience: The seamless construction of tubular tires provides a smooth riding experience and offers better grip in corners. That means more control and fun while riding.

But how do tubular tires differ from other versions like tubeless, clincher, and tubular tires/tubular?

Tubular Tires/Tubular: This version uses a seamless rubber tire that is glued directly onto the rim. They offer the best performance but are slightly more difficult to mount and require special rims.
Tubeless: Unlike tubular tires, tubeless tires do not use inner tubes. Instead, sealant is poured into the tire to seal small punctures. Tubeless tires offer similar benefits to tubular tires but are slightly easier to mount and maintain.
Clincher: Clincher tires are the most common type of tires. They have a separate tire and tube construction that is clinched onto the rim. Clincher tires are easy to mount and offer good all-around performance but are usually heavier than tubular and tubeless tires.

So if you're looking for the highest performance and a premium riding experience, our carbon wheels for tubular tires are the perfect choice for you!

Zipp’s sole mission is to help you go faster. That's why our wheels are race-ready before they're camera-ready. For years, Zipp has used a combination of testing methods – wind tunnel, CFD computer simulations, pro athlete evaluations, and on-road testing – to refine aero performance to new levels of excellence. Our goal is to reduce aero drag while also minimizing the effects of crosswinds on handling. This optimizing of aero efficiency and crosswind stability became known internally at Zipp as AeroBalance™. The approach began with Firecrest technology and has been advanced with the introduction of the NSW lineup, especially with the Sawtooth™ technology. Sawtooth™ accomplishes this with a series of patented fin-shaped Hyperfoil™ nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work together with our new HexFin™ ABLC dimples for improved airflow.
