For us, the goal of testing is not simply to confirm that our products pass government and uci regulations, or even our own, tougher internal standards.

Zipp's unrivaled wind tunnel development process is more than just a glorified photo shoot. We start with literally dozens of non-structural SLA prototypes that we can reshape on the spot to hone in on the fastest design...
