Zipp's 3ZERO Moto 6 Bolt 27.5" Clincher Front Wheel is inspired by moto to provide riders with the control and durability required for pure speed.

Moto remains a powerful source of inspiration for good reason. Based in the racing hotbed of Indy, Zipp for more than three decades has used motorsports as an inspiration to develop pioneering carbon cycling innovations. Their single-wall approach, what we call Moto Technology, allows the rims to “pivot” from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. As the wheel encounters obstacles, each edge of the rim is designed for compliance, creating the feel of extra suspension. For the rider that means durability and control for greater speed.

Technologies

Moto Technology - Their single-wall approach, what we call Moto Technology, allows the rims to “pivot” from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. As the wheel encounters obstacles, each edge of the rim is designed for compliance, creating the feel of extra suspension. For the rider that means durability and control for greater speed:

Higher impact resistance
Reduced chance of pinch flatting
More traction in rough corners
Smoother ride in rocky terrain
Ability to run lower tire pressure
Reduced rider fatigue

TyreWiz - In enduro, 2 to 4 psi one way or the other can greatly influence speed, comfort and traction. TyreWiz is the world’s first AXS app-based tire-pressure monitoring device. It shows riders exactly what pressure their tires are at through their smartphone or head unit with ANT+ or Bluetooth Low Energy radio capabilities. Each 3ZERO MOTO wheelset includes TyreWiz as a standard integrated feature*, helping riders dial-in precise and optimal pressure for every trail condition. TyreWiz syncs the data it tracks with extremely accurate sensors that deliver + or – 2% pressure accuracy, all the way down to 0 psi.

Double Time - Ratcheting up the smarts. This straight-aligned, 4-pawl design turns the 26-tooth ratchet ring into 52 points of contact. The result: smooth 6.9-degree engagement without reducing tooth size or offsetting internal geometry—which means serious long-term durability.

Features

Lateral stiffness – In a sharp turn, the rim remains stiff, providing confidence that the wheel is firmly planted. Zipp’s wide hub flanges provide better spoke-bracing angles which help to increase the lateral stiffness.

Radial Compliance – When you hit a rock, the systems is designed to act as a shock absorber. Zipp’s MOTO Technology allows the rim to flex, which absorbs the impact energy and spreads it away from the impact zone for increased durability. In essence, more of the rim carries the load from the impact.

“Ankle” Compliance – Imagine a runner rounding a sharp turn, the ankle naturally flexing to maintain grip as the runner leans. The rim can locally flex to stay parallel to the ground during cornering, which increases traction much like a human ankle. This ability to twist locally allows it to deflect during single bead impacts without the rider getting bounced off line.

Durability and ride quality – 3ZERO MOTO rim strength exceeded our expectations for impact resistance due to MOTO technology compliance. As for ride quality, the wheel also deflected three times more than top rival box-section carbon wheels. That extra compliance behaves like extra suspension, but it also spreads the impact energy over a larger area. This also benefits the rider in the form of pinch flat prevention.

The benefits of all that are simple. More control. Fewer line deviations. Greater durability. Fewer pinch flats. The net gain? Pure speed.
