Description

Simply the fastest wheels out there, Zipp's 808 Firecrest carbon clincher wheels are the latest of their lineup to take advantage of the Firecrest wider rim design for lots of benefits on the road, none of which mean much if these didn't perform at speed as well as they do. For triathlons or time trials, or even fast road races, where all out speed is the most important factor, the 808s are the weapon of choice.

Optimizing the revolutionary Firecrest aero-rim concept for an 82mm depth and the distinct airflow pattern of clincher tyres required Zipp to evaluate a slew of minutely varied prototypes through CFD, or computational fluid dynamics, software and in the wind tunnel. At 27.5 mm wide, the final version is the fastest deep-section carbon clincher in the world. Yet, with a weight of only 1,885 grams, it more than holds its own on the climbs.

With Firecrest’s unparalleled approach to the wheel’s center of pressure, the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher also handles crosswinds with the stability you’d normally associate with a much shallower rim – making the 808 Carbon Clincher ideal for non-disc-legal courses like Kona. Plus, the wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any terrain and riding style. In addition to Firecrest, all Zipp full-Carbon Clinchers feature an exclusive heat-resistant resin as part of the composite structure. Utilized in the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher, this technology prevents spikes in rim temperature and tyre pressure that can impact performance and handling. Zipp Carbon Clinchers have never had a heat-related failure. So every rider can tackle even the longest, most technical descents with confidence

At the center of the 808 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 includes:

> 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

For triathletes and road racers seeking superior aero performance, stable handling, and the convenience of clinchers, there’s no faster all-around wheelset than the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher.

Extras

Available in two decal options, the stealthy Matte Black or the distinctive Matte White decals. Each 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, rim tape and quick release.
