We’ve reviewed these Zipp 302 wheels, which are marketed as Zipp’s ‘budget’ option, with a retail price of £1299 in comparison to other Zipp wheels which usually top out above £2000. What’s great, is that these wheels are now discounted by a brilliant £400, bringing the whole wheelset in for just £894.99.
We were particularly impressed by how clearly they demonstrate all of Zipp’s advanced technology. The 45mm deep carbon fibre rims were stiff and fast, offering a very nice balance between aerodynamic gains and straight line speed.
Just because it’s budget doesn’t mean Zipp hasn’t sweated the finer details, and the wheels are built with Sapix CX Sprit J Bend spokes and wide hub flanges for stiffness when sprinting out the saddle. There’s a lot of spokes too, 20 on the front and 24 on the rear to be precise. Our tester found the no-nonsense aluminium hubs easy to service, but the good quality bearings should minimise the need to crack them open.
In particular we said “Zipp is renowned for producing super-expensive pro-level wheels with groundbreaking technology but we would hail its first foray into this competitive price point as a major success. The 302s contain Zipp’s vast knowledge and experience within a no-nonsense, stripped-back build that is brutally stiff and devastatingly fast.”
If you were looking to buy yourself a new set of do-it-all carbon fibre wheels then on this discount these Zipp 302s are the wheelset for you.
