Zipp Introduced Its First Mountain Bike Wheel

Zipp (United States) - Press Release: Zipp introduced its first mountain bike wheel, the 3ZERO MOTO, in more than a generation because we saw a specific need of riders out on the trail. It was a need we believed we could fill. This is a brief breakdown of the challenge, innovation, and development of 3ZERO MOTO.To get more news about Road Cicycle Wheels, you can visit zpebicycle official website.

All of these factors contribute to slower times. The solution? Zipp—consistent with its Indy heritage—looked to motorsports, specifically the single-wall designed used in moto. The journey was not easy.

The Zipp 3ZERO MOTO's single-wall approach creates a ride quality we call "ankle compliance," which allows the rims to “pivot” from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. Imagine a runner rounding a sharp turn, the ankle naturally flexing to maintain grip as the runner leans. The rim can locally flex to stay parallel to the ground during cornering, which increases traction much like a human ankle. This ability to twist locally allows it to deflect during single bead impacts without the rider getting bounced off line.

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.
