  • Classic Zeta Wheels

    Tom Ritchey redesigned the critically acclaimed Zeta to be wider, lighter and laterally stiffer, yet still 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 Classic 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. And the Phantom Flange hubs offer the sleek profile and direct-drive efficiency of straight-pull spokes, but still uses stronger, more reliable J-bend spokes for maximum performance and reliability.

    Other features include:
    • Hi-polish silver to match our Classic line of components
    • Extra-wide Ritchey rims with OCR rear
    • Freehub: alloy
    • Proprietary aerospace grade alloy
    • Proprietary super light Phantom Flange hubs with hidden J-bend spokes
    • Brass nipples and DT Competition J-bend spokes
    • Tubeless-ready
    • Build: F=20 radial; R=24 radial/2x
    • Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo 11 speed compatible
    • 1444 grams (625g front, 819 rear)
