Zipp’s new 3ZERO MOTO carbon 27.5 and 29 enduro/trail wheelset is inspired by moto to provide riders with the control and durability required for pure speed.
Moto remains a powerful source of inspiration for good reason. Based in the racing hotbed of Indianapolis, Zipp for more than three decades has used motorsports as an inspiration to develop pioneering carbon cycling innovations. Our single-wall approach, what we call Moto Technology™, allows the rims to “pivot” from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. As the wheel encounters obstacles, each edge of the rim is designed for compliance, creating the feel of extra suspension. For the rider that means durability and control for greater speed:
• Higher impact resistance
• Reduced chance of pinch flatting
• More traction in rough corners
• Smoother ride in rocky terrain
• Ability to run lower tire pressure
• Reduced rider fatigue
While other wheel brands limit their focus to traditional box-section rim designs, Zipp engineers—uninhibited by legacy technology—wiped the white board clean. All the best ideas eventually pointed to motorsports inspiration and Moto Technology’s single-wall rim as the optimal approach for an enduro/trail wheelset.
In enduro, 2 to 4 psi one way or the other can greatly influence speed, comfort and traction. Now, you have real-time tire pressure data thanks to the integration of Quarq’s TyreWiz™ in every 3ZERO MOTO wheel.
We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and the 3ZERO MOTO complete wheelset embodies this philosophy. But we’re also offering the option to purchase 3ZERO MOTO rims alone. We realize there are many hub choices on the market today, riders have particular preferences or arrangements—3ZERO MOTO rims can be part of myriad possible custom-build combinations.
We find structures that deliver unrivaled performance to be the most beautiful. Indeed, beyond its performance function, our carbon layup pattern also has a form factor that looks as sweet as it works. Add to this our new Speed Line™ graphics in your choice of 8 colors, and you’ve got a wheel with high performance aesthetics.
