The wheelset looks very good n Titanium bike.


Font hub looks identical with Zipp 60.


Quick release are the same with Zipp 60, but the hub looks differently


Brake response on carbon wheelset is really different compares to aluminium brake track, it takes slightly more time to a complete stop. Still not getting used to it and got worried while braking on high speed and downhill.


The 303 is not complete black actually, appear with brown-yellow elements in some angles when there is more lights.


Thought of getting Campagnolo Bora One at first but the price shoot high because of currency, hopefully Zipp 303 can serve me longer compare to short life of Zipp 60.
