Zipp Bicycle Wheels & Components Overview

Zipp is an American company which was founded in 1988 and is based in Speedway, Indiana. Zipp’s main concern is the creation of high performance carbon composite cycling wheels for road racing and triathlons. In this pursuit Zipp has been extremely successful and is regarded as the leader in the high end wheel market. Also within the Zipp product range are bicycle accessories such as handle bars, time trail bars, triathlon bars, head stems, seat posts and cranks.

In November 2007 Zipp was acquired by bicycle component manufacture SRAM.
