Hi,
Today i received my zipp 202 fc. Wheels weight 1360g without skewers and tape and they look nice..
One thing i noticed that, rear wheel non-drive side(cross) spokes tension is noticeably lower than the drive side.. Is this normal?
(Front wheel's spoke tension feels nice and firm)

Non drive side tension is always lower.
Perfectly normal. Zipps are not famous for there high spoke tension.
I think my 303 FC are half the tension of my Enve's.

I don't know what side DS or NDS you are referring to, but Zipp 303 FC DS about 130kgf, NDS 80kgf (measured), so according to your statement you should get on Enves DS 260kgf and/or NDS 160kgf....... :wink:
Or your Zipps completely lost spoke tension.....

Enve's web: Road Tensions: 100-120 kg (Front), 120-140kg (Drive)

i don't know as i haven't measured the tension on both sets of wheels but the Enve's spokes feel a hell of a lot more under tension than the 303's.
This reflects on the ride also. 303's feel soft and absorb the road more. Enve's are stiff as hell...too stiff sometimes.

Both are fantastic wheels IMO.
