Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheels - 2019
Zipp's latest 404 Firecrest is simply the best yet! Zipp's engineers are not known for their ability to sit still and are always pushing the boundaries, looking to drop weight, improve aerodynamic performance and provide better braking performance. The 404 Firecrest offers some significant improvements over it's predecessor that helps keep it at the front of the pack when it comes to mid-section aerodynamic wheelsets.
- Revised 58mm deep, 26.4mm wide rim profile reduces aerodynamic drag
- Latest ABLC Sawtooth technology optimises low aerodynamic drag and crosswind stability
- ShowStopper textured brake surface delivers unrivalled stopping power in all conditions
- Proven 77/177 hubset is light, durable and incredibly smooth rolling
- Now 75g lighter than the previous 404 Firecrest at just 1615g per pair
Zipp have always been at the cutting edge of rim technology and this latest iteration of the 404 Firecrest is no different. The rim has a new revised profile that is 58mm deep and has a wider 26.4mm brake track. The Firecrest shape is not only incredibly aerodynamic, it also makes the rims more stable in crosswinds, keeping you more in control in windy conditions that might fluster other mid-deep section wheelsets. The wider rims also give the tyres a wider, more stable shape that is more aerodynamic and improves comfort without compromising rolling resistance. The rim also features Zipp's ShowStopper brake track, which combines with the supplied Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads to offer incredibly smooth and powerful braking performance in all conditions. Zipp also worked with their composites supplier to create a heat resistant resin that improves heat dissipation, so Zipp wheels are even less effected by heat build up that can plague lesser carbon rims.
Quality rims are nothing without quality hubs, and Zipp's proven 77 & 177 hubs are just that; quality. The hubs feature optimised flange geometry and are paired with light and aerodynamic Sapim CX sprint spokes to create a stiff, durable and responsive wheel. The hubs run on incredibly smooth rolling bearings that offer minimal drag while still being highly durable, so you can hammer these wheels without having to worry about durability. The latest Zipp 404 Firecrest is an incredible mid-section aero wheelset, at it's happiest on a fast road bike hammering along and combines cutting edge performance with good value for money when considering the top-level performance on offer.
