All New Zipp 3Zero Moto Wheelset | GMBN Tech 'Geek Edition' First Look

Published on April 8th 2019


With a name more commonly associated with road cycling, it may come as a surprise to see Zipp release a pair of mountain bike wheels. Their pursuit of speed and aerodynamics has put them at the front of road bike wheel technology, and these MTB wheels follow in a similar innovative vein, featuring a single wall design heavily influenced by motocross bikes, hence the name. 3Zero Moto. In association with SRAM Subscribe: The GMBN Shop: The rims, made from Uni-stitch carbon weave, use an asymmetrical construction to offer the strongest wheel build possible; the single wall design allows the rim to deform around big impacts. Zipp says that this Ankle Compliance technology, should increase traction and smooth out rough terrain, whilst allowing lower tyre pressures and reducing rider fatigue. Lateral stiffness was not forgotten, remaining an important factor in Zipp's brief as of course, you'll still want to smash some turns!
