SRAM Introduces the Updated Zipp 3ZERO MOTO Wheelset

Now at the center of the 3ZERO MOTO is the new ZM2 hubset. This German-engineered hubset features 12 pawls and 132 points of engagement for a quicker response. The hub’s improved seal design means better durability on rough terrain.

Zipp’s 3ZERO MOTO carbon 27.5 and 29 enduro/trail wheelset is inspired by moto to provide riders with the control and durability required for pure trail speed. Already this wheelset and its MOTO Technology are proven with multiple victories in the Enduro World Series with our pioneering partnership with Lapierre Zipp Collective.


While other wheel brands limit their focus to traditional box-section rim designs, Zipp engineers — uninhibited by legacy technology — took a different approach. They looked to motorsports as a model. Zipp’s Moto Technology’s single-wall rim is the optimal approach for an enduro/trail wheelset.

The resulting rim provides something we call “ankle compliance.” Imagine a runner rounding a sharp turn, the ankle naturally flexing to maintain grip as the runner leans. The 3ZERO rim can locally flex to stay parallel to the ground during cornering, increasing traction like a human ankle adjusts while running. This ability to twist locally allows it to deflect during single bead impacts without the rider getting bounced offline. 3ZERO MOTO helps you take the most direct route, saving seconds when and where they count most.

Zipp’s ZM2 hubset delivers dependable precision performance to the gnarliest trail. The genius of the ZM2 hub is how we achieved quicker engagement.
