When launching the groundbreaking Firecrest design Zipp chose to launch it with their most versatile wheelset, the 404. With a 58mm rim depth this wheel is the perfect 'all-rounder' making it suitable for triathlons, criteriums and even Grand Tour mountain stages.

The Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile carbon clincher design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength and handling of a wider rim body. Weighing only 725g the 404 is among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers available. One problem that can occur with carbon rims is that heavy continuous braking can cause spikes in rim temperature and tyre pressure that impact performance and handling, especially with clincher tyres. To solve this problem, Zipp's U.S.-based composites supplier created a new heat-resistant resin exclusively for Zipp. This technology improves heat dissipation so substantially that Zipp wheels are the only carbon clinchers to pass stringent European safety testing without limitations on rider weight or brake pad options.

The newest part of the 404's for 2014 is the updated, lightweight 88 hub which features high-precision, Swiss bearings and a 17mm axle, creating one of the stiffest road hubs available. The Zipp 88 was designed with fully adjustable bearing preload via an ultra-fine threaded collar. Zipp's larger Swiss-made bearings are two and a half times rounder than most others in the bike industry and yield a 28% higher load capacity. The hub has a 18 hole count and weighs only 88g.

Zipp have completed the package with the latest iteration of their 188 rear hub, the V9 along with the new spoke-lacing pattern for the rear wheel - refinements that result in improved stiffness and durability. The hub was developed in cooperation of sprinter Mark Cavendish and after using the hub for over 8,000 miles his feedback helped Zipp to optimize the hubs flange geometry, stiffness and weight. The hub features larger precision Swiss bearings for increased durability, virtual 3 cross lacing on both sides of the rear wheel to improve stiffness, achieving 3 cross stiffness in a 2 cross pattern with a new spoke geometry. With 25% more torsional stiffness than a leading competitive hub the 188/V9 is ideal for out-of-the saddle sprints and climbs.

The 188/V9 is 10/11 speed compatible and is available with Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo freehub.
