Description

Zipp's 404 Firecrest carbon tubular wheels are amazingly versatile, having been ridden to victory in all the big races and in surprising circumstances for a deep aero wheel - even in mountain stages. The 404 Firecrest is the first deep section wheel to offer the benefits of wider rims for superior aerodynamics, more stability and strength, ride quality and handling. Bold claims, but backed up by many reviews out there!

The Firecrest profile widens the rim, and carries that width throughout the whole section, only narrowing down very close to the spoke bed. Discovered when creating their Carbon Clincher technology, the Firecrest shape has now been shown in the wind tunnel, and on the road, to be more aero and crucially, be less affected by side winds and gusts than traditional V-section rims.

The benefit runs deeper than just offering aero benefits though - a wider rim makes a stiffer wheel, to be more stable through testing conditions like cobbles and fast cornering, so handling is improved too.

At the center of the 404 Firecrest is Zipp’s 77/177 hubset with best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed. The result is improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility. Features of the hubset include:

> Optimised flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim CX Sprint spokes
> New robust hub platform with distinctive graphics
> Newly designed QR skewer
> New distinctive hub graphics
> Improved bearing protection and sealant

Precision-engineered hubs along with Firecrest technology create something special. Designed specifically to account for the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tires and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher exceeds the aero performance of any other clincher wheelset in its class.

Extras

Available in two decal options, the stealthy Matte Black or the distinctive Matte White decals. Each 404 Firecrest Tubular wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, and quick release.
