Speedway, IN, USA

Zipp Speed Weaponry and Wheeltags announced a partnership today that allows Zipp’s ZEDTECH customers the ability to create fully custom decals for their custom wheels. Wheeltags will handle the creation of custom ZEDTECH decals, as well as the unique flash feature within Zipp’s completely re-designed ZEDTECH website – www.zipp.com/zedtech.

“We couldn’t be more pleased about this partnership and the chance to provide the most respected wheel manufacturer, and their customers, with truly unique, customer designed decals,” said Kevin Koval, Director of Sales and one of the three owners of Wheeltags. “It is the perfect mix of our decal expertise and Zipp’s legendary customer service.”

The new custom decal feature within the ZEDTECH website provides each customer their own “Co-Design Tool Kit” to select different colors within the Zipp ZEDTECH decal, view them on their chosen wheel sizes and even “spin” the wheels. Information about the decals, along with the other specifics of a customer’s ZEDTECH custom wheel order, will be stored in a unique user ID. This allows for a streamlined transfer of vital information from Zipp dealers directly to the Zipp World Headquarters.

To get the most of Zipp’s custom decal options, ZEDTECH customers using the website can select from two different pricing levels. The first pricing level, $160 (US) for one wheel, includes complete color customization within the CMYK spectrum. The second pricing level, $220 (US) for one wheel, allows ZEDTECH customers to choose between complete color customization as well as a lighter/thinner OR reflective material.

“ZEDTECH represents the absolute pinnacle in custom performance race wheels. With options for Si3N4 silicon nitride ceramic bearings, rim laminates, spoke nipple colors, flange cap colors, and end cap colors, adding custom decals was the next logical step to meet the demands of the most discerning cyclist and triathletes on earth. With all of these options available ZEDTECH customers can truly have a one-of-a-kind wheelset.” said Andy Paskins, Marketing Manager for Zipp Speed Weaponry in Speedway, IN.
