3ZERO MOTO 29in Carbon Boost Wheel by Zipp
When we think of Zipp, we think of gram-obsessed, aerodynamic components for road cycling. The speed-focused company has recently shifted their focus to the mountain bike world, however, with the release of the 3ZERO MOTO 29in Carbon Boost Wheel. These innovative MTB wheels draw inspiration from motocross bikes, employing a single-wall rim designed to provide aggressive trail riders and enduro racers with newfound levels of speed and control. It's called Moto Technology, and it essentially allows the rim to be more compliant in rough terrain, providing a level of traction unmatched by any wheels currently on the market, without making any compromises to lateral stiffness. Furthermore, Zipp claims the wheel can sustain impacts that would destroy competitor's alloy wheels, and that the risk of pinch flats is decreased--all good things for the discerning rider and racer.There's a good chance you're wondering what makes these wheels any better than existing designs, and why Zipp would spend over three years developing and testing with some of the fastest riders in the world to bring us a non-conventional rim shape. Well, the vast majority of carbon mountain bike rims use a box-section design with a hollow D-shaped cross section. It's an effective way to make a stiff and strong rim, but with carbon fiber it often results in a rim that's too stiff, which can feel harsh on the trail and potentially increase your risk of pinch flats. Aluminum rims add some compliance, but the softer material is more susceptible to dents or even flat spots that can eventually render it unrideable.Zipp's Moto Technology addresses these concerns with a single-wall rim profile that allows for more radial compression, resulting in a more compliant and comfortable ride that Zipp feels makes you faster on the trail. Additionally, like motocross wheels, the 3ZERO MOTO rim can pivot from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. Zipp calls it "ankle compliance" because the rim...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
