Zipp® is proud to partner with the world’s top pro triathletes, cyclocross racers and road teams. Riding Zipp wheels, bars, stems and seatposts, these incredible athletes succeed in the world’s biggest races -- the Tour de France, Paris-Roubaix, world cup cyclocross events and the Ironman® World Championship in Kona and more. Beyond inspiring performances and stellar results, our sponsored professionals provided Zipp with a steady stream of precise feedback and on-the-road testing that is invaluable in our unwavering quest to build the world’s best wheels and components.
In the Zipp test lab, everything breaks. If we run the machines long enough, every product will eventually fail. that's when things start to get interesting. For us, the goal of testing is not simply to confirm that our products pass government and uci regulations, or even our own, tougher internal standards. The more important purpose is to make stronger, more durable products by learning when, how and why failures occur.
