ZIPP 101 XPLR TUBELESS DISC WHEELSET - 650B
The Zipp XPLR 101 Disc Tubeless Wheel is their first designed specifically for gravel riding. Zipp incorporated MOTO Technology into this wheel which allows the rim to pivot from side to side within the spoke bed while riding on difficult terrain. The edge of the rim is designed to have extra compliance, giving the feeling of suspension through gravel excursions. This results in excellent durability and a high level of control which of course, leads to more speed. With a higher impact resistance, reduced chances of pinch flattening, more traction, and the ability to run lower tire pressures, you have everything you need to take on a gravel run. MOTO Technology leads to less rider fatigue and simply better gravel riding.
This is the 650b version of the XPLR 101 Wheels which provide an even more versatile and compliant feel for difficult terrain than the 700c version. A ZR1 Hubset provides a tight seal for improved durability and lightning quick response thanks to 66 points of engagement. Top level vibration dampening, and frustration-free tire installation makes these the perfect ride for those unknown roads ahead. Gravel riders deserve the same options and performance as road riders; that is why the Zipp XPLR 101 Wheelset allows you to pursue adventure with the highest level of performance.
