Ritchey WCS Zeta Wheelset

Tom Ritchey redesigned the critically acclaimed Zeta to be wider, lighter and laterally stiffer. Yet these wheels remain tough enough to endure gravel road rides and cyclocross races that would chew lesser wheels to pieces. Building upon the legendary wheel-building and design heritage of Ritchey, the WCS Zeta wheels offer modern features that allow them to perform gracefully in variety of ride settings. Featuring a wider tire profile, the Zeta wheels provide a more comfortable ride while improving handling. The Phantom Flange hubs offer the sleek profile and direct-drive efficiency of straight-pull spokes, but still use stronger, more reliable J-bend spokes for maximum performance and reliability.

The 20mm internal rim width makes the WCS Zeta Rim ideal for tires from 23-30mm, and is perfectly balance with the 23.8mm profile height, which combine to deliver a sure and stable footprint while creating an inherently strong rim structure, which is enhanced by the use of 6066 aluminum alloy, a welded rim joint and CNC-machined braking surface. The application of the Tubless Ready channel also not only contributes to the strength but also reinforces the contemporary credentials of this well built and designed road wheelset. Compatible with road QR standard 100/130mm hub dropouts, the WCS Zeta Wheelset is ideal for Road Break-Away builds, not only because of the durability, use of j-bend spokes and reliable high performance, but because that is what the tool-free break down of the rear hub system was developed for- saving you valuable space when packing for travel.
