Engineered to be the fastest accelerating carbon clincher Zipp has ever made, 202 NSW flies up the toughest climbs, and then shaves even more time off of the descents to follow. And because extracting greater speed on the mountain is only half the battle, Zipp built 202 NSW to deliver the lowest aerodynamic drag available for a rim of this depth for speed everywhere else.
less crosswind side force
allows faster cornering
especially quiet, supple, and durable bearings

NSW The Zipp NSW Series is a science, a philosophy and a mission to engineer the fastest, most stable and highest performance cycling components ever realized.Within the NSW Series, Zipp will develop and refine halo-level products with our most advanced technologies on an ongoing basis. The focus is on transforming innovative ideas into tangible gains in speed. NSW – for Nest Speed Weaponry – comes from the nickname “The Nest” Zipp engineers gave to the windowless, high-security advanceddevelopment lab in the corner of the Zipp factory. It’s where only the best fledgling ideas fly.
ImPress™ Zipp has employed Zipp’s ImPress™ graphics technology, which prints graphics directly on the wheel, to help allow the dimples to do what they were designed to do – help control vortex shedding, the rate at which air sheds off the wheel. Managing this is crucial to stability. ImPress graphics also give 808 NSW a distinctive stealthy look.
ABLC Sawtooth™ Zipp’s new Sawtooth dimple design consists of 12 nodes that are precisely clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a rate of 50hz at a rider speed of 20mph. Sawtooth accomplishes this by inducing small sheet vortices that shed at a low magnitude, but at a higher natural frequency, thus decreasing the laminar bubble effect on the aerodynamically shielded side of the rim’s profile to further reduce high yaw drag and improve crosswind stability. That crosswind stability then imparts peace of mind when the weather turns south while saving watts that would have been expended while attempting to hold your line.
Showstopper™ Zipp's industry leading silicon carbide Showstopper™ brake track continues to evolve and improve, providing unmatched stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or the length of the descent.
