Zipp introduces 3Zero Moto

Zipp has announced its new 3Zero Moto carbon 27.5 and 29 enduro/trail wheelset.

The company’s single-wall approach, called Moto Technology, “allows the rims to ‘pivot’ from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain”.

“The 3Zero Moto’s stiffness, compliance and durability comes from Zipp’s proprietary process to design and assemble rim, hub, and spokes. Each 3Zero Moto wheel is built as a system, its ZM1 hubset and 32 spokes and handmade carbon rim all integrate to play key roles in performance,” said a statement. “Look at a cross section of the 3Zero Moto and you can see the difference right away. It’s a quantum jump from the typical and limiting box-section design that bicycle wheels have always used –our moto-inspired design allows the fastest trail riders on earth to fly over the roughest terrain imaginable with speed and control like never before.”

Each wheelset includes Speed Line Graphics with a choice of eight colours, including silver, stealth, RS red, orange, yellow, green, teal or blue. There is also TyreWiz, which is an integrated tyre pressure monitoring system, as well as a tubeless valve and tubeless rim tape. Zipp is also offering the option to purchase 3Zero Moto rims alone, which can be part of custom-build combinations. 

Each rim-only includes Speed Line Graphics with the choice of eight colours, a tubeless valve, rim strip and tubeless rim tape, and washers.

Each 3Zero Moto wheelset or rim includes a lifetime warranty for product issues that happen during trail or enduro use, subject to terms and conditions.
