What do we have here...

Official word from Zipp US tech support was "we have no official comment at this time".

It would also appear they are prepping for a logo change, to coincide with the logo used on the new 3zero moto line of MTB rims. Again all speculation, but interested to see what develops from Zipp and when...

Is it just me or does anyone else think they look a bit more V shaped (similar approach as the new Reynolds Aero wheels), at least judging by the lighting on them compared to the other wheels.
I reckon the position of the CCC guy would give him much more of a benefit than the new Zipps though.

That was also my first impression, V shape.

Yeah, it looks like the wheels are narrower at the front edge. Interestingly, my new Aeolus wheels have also adopted a similar profile.

Also, it looks the the saw tooth profile is gone.

Almost look like they have a braking surface on a disc wheel!

I saw that too, but I think it's a feature of the tire.

Initially I thought it was the tire, but then I realized it was just the way the light is reflecting off the edge of the rim. That’s why we don’t see a similar effect on the edge of the rim anywhere else.

Looks like 303 size, no sawtooth on those
Could be reflective surface and logo ?

Seems people are mixing up the terms sawtooth and dimples?

Anyway, looks like those are tubular rims and maybe just a graphics change.

that new logo and the way it's applied on the rims is quite hideous

maybe it's just the sidewall of the tire? :noidea:
