Zipp 3ZERO Moto 29″ XD Tubeless Boost Rearwheel – MTB Wheels


Zipp 3ZERO Moto 29″ XD Tubeless Boost Rearwheel

Zipp’s new 3ZERO MOTO carbon 29″ enduro/trail wheelset is inspired by moto to provide riders with the control and durability required for pure speed.

Inspired by motorsport: the 3ZERO Moto Tubeless Boost Wheel from Zipp

Moto remains a powerful source of inspiration for good reason. Based in the racing hotbed of Indianapolis, Zipp for more than three decades has used motorsports as an inspiration to develop pioneering carbon cycling innovations. Our single-wall approach, what we call Moto Technology™, allows the rims to “pivot” from either side of the spoke bed while traversing rough terrain. As the wheel encounters obstacles, each edge of the rim is designed for compliance, creating the feel of extra suspension.

For the rider that means durability and control for greater speed:

  • Higher impact resistance
  • Reduced chance of pinch flatting
  • More traction in rough corners
  • Smoother ride in rocky terrain
  • Ability to run lower tire pressure
  • Reduced rider fatigue

Scope of delivery – 3ZERO Moto 29″ XD Tubeless Boost Rearwheel

  • 1 x 3ZERO Moto 29″ XD Tubeless Boost Rearwheel
  • 1 x TyreWiz™
  • 1 x Tubeless Valve
  • 1 x Tubeless Rim Tape
  • 1 x 12/148 Endcaps


  • Lateral stiffness: In a sharp turn, the rim remains stiff, providing confidence that the wheel is firmly planted. Zipp’s wide hub flanges provide better spoke-bracing angles which help to increase the lateral stiffness
  • Torsional windup: When torque is applied to the rear hub when pedaling, you don’t want the spokes to create a spring-like flex sapping your wattage. Having 32 spokes at the right tensions keep the wheel constrained during windup, meaning the energy in your legs is efficiently transferred to your rear wheel
  • Radial compliance: When you hit a rock, the system is designed to act as a shock absorber. Zipp’s MOTO Technology allows the rim to flex, which absorbs the impact energy and spreads it away from the impact zone for increased durability. In essence, more of the rim carries the load from the impact.
  • “Ankle” compliance: Imagine a runner rounding a sharp turn, the ankle naturally flexing to maintain grip as the runner leans. The rim can locally flex to stay parallel to the ground during cornering, which increases traction much like a human ankle. This ability to twist locally allows it to deflect during single bead impacts without the rider getting bounced off line
  • Durability and ride quality: 3ZERO MOTO rim strength exceeded our expectations for impact resistance due to MOTO Technology compliance. As for ride quality, the wheel also deflected three times more than top rival box-section carbon wheels. That extra compliance behaves like extra suspension, but it also spreads the impact energy over a larger area. This also benefits the rider in the form of pinch flat prevention. The benefits of all that are simple. More control. Fewer line deviations. Greater durability. Fewer pinch flats. The net gain? Pure speed.
  • Transform your ride with precise pressure: : In enduro, 2 to 4 psi one way or the other can greatly influence speed, comfort and traction. Now, you have real-time tire pressure data thanks to the integration of Quarq’s TyreWiz™ in every 3ZERO MOTO wheel. TyreWiz is the world’s first AXS app-based tirepressure monitoring device. It shows riders exactly what pressure their tires are at through their smartphone or head unit with ANT+ or Bluetooth Low Energy radio capabilities. Each 3ZERO MOTO wheelset includes TyreWiz as a standard integrated feature*, helping riders dial-in precise and optimal pressure for every trail condition. TyreWiz syncs the data, using the AXS app, it tracks with extremely accurate sensors that deliver + or – 2% pressure accuracy, all the way down to 0 psi
  • Frustration-free tire installation: : We all know what it can be like trying to stretch new tires over certain wheels. And with the added complexity that comes when also trying to install a tire insert, the process can get the better of even the strongest or most skilled. That is why the 3ZERO MOTO has been designed to make this process as easy as possible. No tools or help from friends are needed thanks to a rim profile and spoke-bed strip designed to make mounting and airing up tubeless tires the way it should be: Dead simple
