Indianapolis, Indiana — Cyclocross is brutal, on both riders and their equipment. The constant obstacles, flying mounts down muddy hills and mad cluster of frantic competitors are just the beginning. The abuse put on equipment is intense, and dependable gear is key. Zipp has a strong commitment to developing strong, reliable cyclocross gear, and supporting the athletes that ride it.
Zipp is proud to announce its roster for the 2011-2012 Cyclocross season, which will take to the course with the proven durability of the 303CX, and the Zipp Service Course SL bars, stems and seatposts.
