193. ZIPP Wheel Design Engineer, Ben Waite, Talks Wheels, PSI, and Bike Fit

ZIPP Wheel Design Engineer and triathlete, Ben Waite, joins me on the Marni on the Move podcast  to talk all things wheels for road and triathlon riders.  ZIPP is one of the TOP  designers and manufacturing of carbon-composite bicycle wheels for road cycling, triathlons,gravel, track racing, and mountain biking.

Ben dials us into the history of ZIPP and where it all began, his passion for triathlon and cycling, and what he loves about being out on his bike!  Ben offers top insight and advice on the best wheels to use for a variety of weather conditions, terrain, and race goals and the key factors that play a role in what you should consider when buying new wheels. We talk about the evolution of aerodynamics, technology, and how disc and electronic shifting are the new normal.  Ben sheds light on tubular, tubeless and clinchers and how cyclists and triathletes are adapting to new innovations.  AND, of course we chat about the new ZIPP Firecrest 303, 353 and 404 wheelsets, the latest news on the best tire pressure to ride, and bike fit.
