CANYON//SRAM Racing Super-9 Disc
Celebrate speed, high-performance and women’s cycling with this limited edition CANYON//SRAM Racing Super-9 Disc wheel. Produced in our Indianapolis factory these Super-9 Disc wheels feature Zipp ImPress™ direct print technology that emblazons our fastest wheel with the team’s distinctive Rapha® kit design. The custom CANYON//SRAM Racing design is available on Super-9 Carbon Clincher discs.
Zipp is a proud sponsor and technical partner of the new CANYON//SRAM Racing team, which is focused this year on the inaugural UCI Women’s WorldTour. The team excels in time trials and team time trials. Just as Zipp’s wheel technology pushes boundaries of aerodynamic efficiency and stability, Zipp’s Impress technology, also used in our exclusive NSW wheelsets, allows for limitless and light weight graphics. Think of it as a way to increase your coolness-to-weight ratio.
Zipp ImPress graphics are:
• Extremely light weight
• Printed directly onto the disc
Our Carbon Clincher’s non-parallel brake track helps to smooth the airflow transition from the tire onto the disc’s surface. It’s a key piece of the aerodynamics puzzle. The Carbon Clincher brake track combined with the Super-9’s wide profile, which runs virtually the same width from rim to hub, create an ultra aero wheel. Our exclusive resin effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide reliability and stopping power.
You’ll find tire installation a breeze, typically with no tools required. So, just pick the perfect tire for any course and go fast. Compatible with cassettes of up to 11-speed to work with all modern drivetrains. Comes with our new Tangente Platinum Pro Evo Brake Pads, designed to provide optimal braking for carbon surfaces, including a greater surface area for maximum braking power, improved clearance to work with integrated brakes and a new groove pattern for improved braking in wet conditions.

Our superior Carbon Clincher technology is the culmination of two years of intensive prototyping and testing. We worked with our composites supplier to develop an exclusive heat-resistant resin based on the materials used in motorsports brake systems. This proprietary technology improves heat management so substantially that all Zipp Carbon Clinchers pass stringent CEN safety standards.
Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of our carbon rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim's surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Super-9 Disc. The third-generation of ABLC has up to four times more dimples than before.
Every aspect of our 88 and 188 hubs sets a new benchmark. The standard steel bearings are the roundest in the industry. The 17mm axle is the stiffest of any road hub we've tested. The wire EDM-cut hub internals are the most precise. When it comes to precision and performance, there's really no comparison.
Electron Discharge Machining allows us to cut the materials for our rear hub drive internals after they’ve been hardened through heat treating, negating the warping and imprecision caused by the heat-treating process.
Zipp is the only company specifying Swiss made highly specialized ball bearing cartridges. Working with a family owned Swiss bearing manufacturer, Zipp is able to attain a superior level of bearing smoothness and long life. Zipp ball bearings are specified to 10 millionths of an inch tolerance, guaranteeing that they are at least 2.5 times rounder and better matched than most company’s “high precision” balls, and more than five times tighter than most “precision” balls.

We’ve employed Zipp’s ImPress™ graphics technology, which prints graphics directly on the wheel, to help allow the dimples to do what they were design to do – help control vortex shedding, the rate at which air sheds off the wheel. Managing this is crucial to stability. ImPress graphics also give NSW a distinctive stealthy look.
