Zipp’s Impress™ Technology Opens New World of Wheel Graphics

Zipp’s fastest wheel ever – in fact, the fastest wheel ever – deserves something special. Zipp is proud to introduce a limited edition Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc wheel featuring an innovative design applied with our new Impress™ Technology.

Just as Zipp’s wheel technology pushes boundaries of aerodynamic efficiency and stability, Impress Technology provides limitless possibilities for lightweight wheel graphics through direct printing. Think of it as a way for any triathlete or time trialist to increase his or her coolness-to-weight ratio.
Zipp Impress graphics are:

• Extremely light weight.
• Durable.
• Directly printed onto disc, enabling limitless and innovative design applications.

Impress technology is already in use, most notably with the striking circular world championship stripes on the Super-9 Disc Germany’s Sebastian Kienle rode on his way to victory in the recent Ironman 70.3 World Championship. Discs with Impress Technology were also delivered to the Zipp-supported Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team. Impress technology is only available on the limited edition Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc at this time.
