Description

Simply the fastest wheels out there, Zipp's 808 Firecrest carbon tubular 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 808's are the weapon of choice.

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 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. Triathlon legend Chris “Macca” McCormack saw this advantage early on when the 808 Firecrest Tubular was just being introduced. He opted for Firecrest, and won Kona in 2010. Since, the 808 Firecrest is the go-to wheel choice when aero and stability matter most.

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

Extras

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