Zipp Firecrest Review

There is no denying that if you don’t mind spending some of your hard earned cash, that Zipp Firecrest has something for you in return. While they can vary in weight and some function, they stand as being one of the best performing and most durable wheelsets around. So, why is this?

One of the reasons is that Zipp has managed to focus its attention on the front wheel as well as the rear wheel. Specifically, it is has taken steps to improve the aerodynamic abilities of both wheels. This means that the airflow is smoother with the front and the back wheel when the bike is in motion.

They also great when it comes to stability, especially when you hit bad patches of weather. This has been done by imperceptibly changing the shape of the rim. By doing so, Zipp was able to do two important things. First, it increased the stability, especially in crosswinds. At the same time, it cut down on the aerodynamics drag. This means you will not have to deal with any swerving or interruption during your ride. This is especially useful during races.

Since you are spending a pretty penny on any one of these wheelsets, you really do want them to last you a while. Fortunately, the Firecrest series does just that. This is largely due to the wider rims that ensure you can take on any type of terrain. What’s more it works hard to keep you comfortable as you do so.
