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 1690g for the set, 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.

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.


Available in two decal options, the stealthy Matte Black or the distinctive Matte White decals. Each 404 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.
