Zipp 30 wheelset review

Zipp 30
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The trump card has got to be the aerodynamics. With a hybrid toroidal rim shape, wind resistance at all yaw angles is less than a box-section rim and they don't get pushed around badly in crosswinds. If you've got to have an aerodynamic shallow-section wheel, then nothing we know of will perform better, but only you can decide if it's worth the extra weight and cost.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Good in cross winds

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Heavier than rivals
