Got some time to kill today? Lock yourself in your office, the bathroom, lunch room, or where ever so you can take a break and check out this cool 16 minute video on the engineering hurdles Zipp had to overcome to produce their new Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Just what PSI can a Firecrest withstand? To find out, you can fast forward to 5 minutes in, as they test the wheels to the point of failure!


  1. Not a bad wheel design, but it is just too heavy, they need to drop the weight by 250 grams per set of wheels.

  2. They use the best materials and the best companies data telemetry to test. That makes you the best. Go ZIPP!
