Zipp's Sawtooth is back with 353 NSW: disc only, 28mm minimum tyre width and hookless rims

Move towards hookless tech continues for Zipp

Zipp has launched a new 353 NSW wheelset, carrying over much of the tech introduced in the Zipp 303 Firecrest and Zipp 303S refreshes of 2020: wide, hookless rims designed to be run at lower pressures, and a decrease in weight.

If the name doesn't shake your memory, the NSW range is the high-end family with a wavy profile. The newest model is suitable for tyres 28mm or over due to the 25mm internal width. Zipp has taken the decision to make these available in disc brake only form.
