One ride on a set of Roval's Control Carbon 29 wheels and you'll see what the hype around carbon wheels is all about. Stiffer, lighter, faster; what's not to love? This 1580 gram wheelset uses DT Swiss Revolution spokes and locking DT Swiss nipples laced to a 27mm-wide carbon rim. DT Swiss hub internals are always ready whenever you need to put the power down, and the 15mm/QR front hub and 135mm/142mm rear hub axle compatibly makes it easy to upgrade any bike.
Roval's Stout SL 29 Rear Wheel is a nice upgrade for any mountain bike. It boasts a lightweight aluminum rim, quality hub and stainless-steel spokes for a great ride and excellent durability.
Roval's Hardrock 29 Rear Wheel is a great replacement hoop, spare wheel, or even a great way to update an older mountain bike. This durable, aluminum rear wheel has a disc-compatible hub and a machined rim braking surface on the double-wall rim so it's ready for almost any mountain bike, no matter your brake setup. Non-rusting, stainless-steel spokes round out this high-quality, high-value wheel.
At the pinnacle of Zipp's wheel lineup confidently sits the 808 NSW Carbon Clincher. With a host of technological advancements that all contribute to making the 808 NSW an elite-level triathlon and time trial rim, this may be the missing piece from your podium finish puzzle. With increased gains upon Zipp's standard 808 Firecrest rim, the NSW provides proven energy savings thanks to a new rim dimple design, called SawTooth, that decreases the laminar bubble effect that contributes to drag and crosswind instability. Also, graphics are printed directly on the wheel instead of using stickers that decrease hard-earned aerodynamic development. At the heart of Zipp's 808 NSW is their new Cognition hubset, which reduces freehub drag by disengaging the rear ratchet mechanism when coasting. The front hub features a scalloped-edge design that maintains truer hub bore diameter in high-tension spoke applications for lateral stiffness and faster-rolling bearings with increased service life, giving you the advantage when every second counts. Wrapping the efficient rim design is a silicone carbide "Showstopper" brake track that provides worry-free stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or length of descent, thanks to molded-in texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin. Each Zipp 808 NSW wheel comes with a titanium skewer, Silca valve extender, wheel bag, Zipp Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp tube (700c x 19-25mm), and Zipp rim tape (700c x 20mm).
If you had to choose just one wheel, the 404 Firecrest should be your choice. With the depth and shape proven in all conditions it's the all-around performer and standard by which all aero wheels are measured. At the center of the wheelset is Zipp's 77/177 hubset, an innovation that results in improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility - Firecrest rim technology affords the rider more speed, more stability, and more strength. This technology offers stable, predictable handling, and the wider rim increases lateral stiffness while offering greater vertical compliance - Each wheel includes Zipp quick release skewer, end caps that can be swapped to run 12mm or 15mm thru axle; 1 Zipp 700c X 20mm rim tape, and 1 Zipp tubeless valve
$950.00 - $1,150.00
Zipp hits high all-around marks with their 303 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheelset, thanks to a wide tire bed and mid-aero profile. The 28.5mm rim width provides confident control in nasty crosswinds and on rough roads, and the 45mm Firecrest rim profile offers wind-shedding aerodynamics while maintaining great acceleration characteristics. Zipp's 77/177 hubset, laced with Sapim CX-Sprint spokes, provides maintenance-free reliability and lateral stiffness, and trusted stopping power comes via Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads. Included with each wheel are a Zipp-integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, rim tape, and quick release.

Zipp makes the impossible possible with their 303 Firecrest Carbon Disc Brake wheels—they're equally at home on the flats as they are in the mountains. The 45mm-deep rims slice through the wind more efficiently than even many deep-section wheels thanks to their 28.5mm-wide dimpled rims. And, by creating a seamless junction between rim and tire, the increased width further reduces drag. The 303s climb with the best and re-accelerate out of corners like rockets since they barely register on the scale, which makes them a must-have on undulating terrain. The extra wide rim also allows running wider tires at lower pressures with less fear of pinch flatting, which boosts ride quality and comfort and reduces rolling resistance. Plus, Zipp's 77D/177D disc hubs gives you incredible stopping power in wet and dry conditions alike, and they're thru-axle compatible (sold separately) for jaw-dropping steering precision and power transfer. You also get Sapim's oustanding CX-Ray spokes.
