Perfect Harmony - The new 30 Clincher

Zipp’s new 30 Clincher transports you from that effortless coffee-shop ride to the Wednesday Worlds in efficient Zipp style. This is a durable, high-performance wheelset designed with proven aerodynamic principles. Its hybrid toroidal aluminum rim provides an aero advantage exceeding many deeper “V” section carbon rims. The 30 Clincher’s all-new 10 or 11-speed compatible hub is buttery smooth yet so durable it pushed our test-lab equipment to the brink. For you, that means years of riding your wheels, not worrying about them. Simply put, the 30 Clincher is the perfect balance of durability, aerodynamics, stiffness and weight. And it comes at a price that fits every rider’s budget.


  • Wide tire bed enhances cornering grip and increases ride comfort.
  • 30mm hybrid toroidal aluminum rim offers aerodynamic benefits surpassing many deeper “V” shaped carbon rims.
  • Ships with Zipp Tangente butyl road inner tubes with removable core (700c x 19-23mm), quick-release skewers and rim strips.


  • 10/11-speed compatible. Shell formed from ultra-strong, lightweight 7075-T6 aluminum.
  • Sapim CX-Ray spokes maintain stiffness required for efficient power transfer. External nipples better support each spoke as it exits the rim.
  • Stainless steel bearings. Hub is precision set, so it requires no pre-load adjustment.
