Hi All,

What is the difference in the Zipp 303 from 2005 to 2006 model?
Is the difference so noticable that it is worth putting down a few hundred more for the new 2006 version?

Thanks all,
Rickard

The 2006 rims are 44mm in height verses the 38 of the 2005. Carbon is very light material so while there won't be much of an increase in weight, I would think there would be a little more weight to the taller of the two rims.

The rims are also dimpled, like the rest of the Zipp rim family (minus the 202).
