Ritchey WCS Zeta II Wheelset (clincher)

Tom Ritchey designed the critically acclaimed Zeta to be wide, light and laterally stiff, yet still tough enough to endure gravel road rides and cyclocross races that would chew lesser wheels to pieces.

• Proprietary super light Phantom Flange hubs with hidden J-bend spokes
• Tubeless compatible
• Shimano and SRAM 11-speed compatible
• 1,444 grams (625g front, 819 rear)
• Extra-wide rims (17mm internal width) increase lateral stiffness and improve tire profile for a smoother ride and better handling
• Proprietary Ritchey extrusion balances ride quality and aerodynamics
• Rear OCR (Off Center Rim) design reduces wheel dish to balance spoke tension for a stronger, stiffer wheel
• Proprietary aerospace grade alloy
• Precision machined sidewalls
• Phantom Flange hidden J-bend design creates the sleek, aero profile and direct-drive efficiency of straight-pull spokes but still uses stronger, more reliable J-bend spokes
• Premium quality bearings
• Patented 6 pawl, 12-point micro clutch engagement system
• Tool-free design allows for quick disassembly—great for packing Break-Away travel bikes or replacing spokes
• Staggered drive side flange increases spoke bracing angle and eliminates interference between crossing spokes, resulting in a stiffer, stronger wheel
• Brass nipples and DT New Aero J-bend spokes shave precious grams without skimping on longevity
• Each Zeta II wheel set is hand built by a qualified Ritchey wheel technician
