Proven Performer - The new 60 Clincher

The final KM. The bell lap. That beautiful and isolated ribbon of road. They’re reasons you throw your leg over a bike frame and pedal. The new Zipp 60 Clincher allows you to experience these thrills on a precision-engineered, high-performance carbon rim at a price that won’t create financial drag. The 58mm dimpled hybrid toroidal rim is based on aerodynamic principles validated in the wind tunnel and with scores of race wins. Based on Zipp’s quarter-century of aero expertise, the 60 Clincher is stiff and durable yet nimble thanks to continuous and strenuous product development. An all-new 10 or 11-speed compatible hub makes the 60 Clincher as durable as it is fast. This versatile wheelset is perfect for road racers, triathletes, gran fondo enthusiasts or those who simply love to ride.
