Anyone got Zipp 302 wheels?

Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

I’m looking at a fast £1000 wheel set, always loved the brand.
Has anyone got them and have a good comparison to other deep wheels?

i have only used 302 front wheel. i mix it with 404 or 808 firecrest at the back. mine is the disc brake version, so i cant comment on rim brake brake track.
I think 302 is great for the price. although i use 23mm or 24mm tyres at the front, so i have not tried 25mm. they feel smooth and not too bothered by windy condition.
i will be selling them (302 and 404, but keeping 8008 for triathlon) at the end of the summer though because i'm going give Hunt a try next (purely out of curiosity to try ullra wide rim)
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

Many thanks
After reading a few reviews from buyers I’m siding with Mavic.

I've got a set as OEM wheels for Cervelo R5 Disc.

Quite good rolling

No tubeless
Can't feel any "aero" (but I'm using them with 28mm Turbo Cottons - which are too wide for the rims)

Overall, a solid wheel, but for the price you mention I'd rather build a reputable Chinese brand custom set.
