Remember Me? Results 1 to 11 of Thread: Zipp 60 vs Zipp Firecrest clinchers. Zipp 60 vs Zipp Firecrest clinchers I am in the market for a set of Zipps. I've always wanted a pair, have a set of Eastons and chinese carbon clinchers btw solid as a rock and so worth the i spend.. Don't care about other brands OK so I live in the flat lands.
Ride in all conditions hello Canada and I am having a real hard time justifying the cost difference between the two sets 60 vs FC. It seems so far the difference beyond the full carbon vs aluminium brake tracks is weight and hubs. I currently weight lbs at 5,11 so I am not concerned too much about weight. Anything else I am missing here? What else should I be considering beyond just the weight and quality of the hubs?

I really don't buy anything for my bikes based on weight more on quality so I am thinking I might pull the trigger on a set of 60's this week as probikekit has a wicked deal on right now. Reply With Quote. I'd get the 60s If weight isn't an issue, go with the 60s. The Zipp 60s were the old s before they debuted the Firecrest toroidal design which is meant to form an ideal airfoil when coupled with a 23 mm tire. The new s are obviously full carbon, so you'll need carbon-specific brake pads, whereas you can use standard brake pads with the 60s which have an aluminum brake track.
That would be especially convenient if you're switching wheels semi frequently. Some good comments and advice in this thread. I would probably go with the Firecrest because its such a benchmark aero wheel. The models get further improvements. I would not worry about braking since you ride predominately flatlnads.
I like the 60 too though, and if budgets are a concern then its a very good choice. But if you can afford the FC, I would not question it. You only live once. Thanks everyone for the advice. I went for a nice 2 hour ride and debated my decision and the Zipp 60's will be purchased online this evening from PBK.

The wheels came with the tubes, rim tape and tires mounted which I thought was odd but that was part of the deal when I bought them, they came with free tires but thought they'd come separately! Either way saved me 10 minutes originally in getting them up and rolling. OK the weight is noticeable over my chinese carbon clinchers see my other posts in the mega china thread for reviews and updates.
I can't see it worth the extra 2k for the firecrest version of these when it is weight difference of two iphones. I do think I noticed they don't spin up as fast, but do seem to hold the speed better than my carbon wheelset. Then just fill out this form, giving us the details of the offer.
