Utilizing the principles of biomimicry, Zipp engineers studied the environment around them for instances of how nature solved similar problems of speed, control, and efficiency for the next generation of Zipp wheels. Inspired by the irregular shape of the leading edge of humpback whale pectoral fins, which help provide this giant creature with speed and maneuverability, our engineers began developing wheels that used similarly shaped nodes along the inner circumference of the rim. The product of years of research and hundreds of hours in the wind tunnel, the resulting Sawtooth™ rim shape delivers aerodynamic efficiency and crosswind stability that far surpasses what is possible with conventionally shaped wheels.
