We’ll end with Zipp’s negative drag PowerTap equipped Sub 9 disc whee

We’ll end with Zipp’s negative drag PowerTap equipped Sub 9 disc wheel, because we’ll pick up here with the next installment and look at what Zipp and SRAM have cooked up new for the road. The PowerTap hub only adds 120 grams to any of Zipp’s disc wheels; the Sub 9 tubular equipped with a PowerTap weighs 1120-grams. SRAM announced that it will introduce its own line of wheels at the tradeshows this fall. It will keep Zipp as its high-end road brand, so for fun I’ll take a guess that in six months time, SRAM might have a viable mountain bike wheel? It would surely round out the line nicely.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.
