Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel 2019
Designed to offer a perfect balance of low drag and high stability, Zipp's 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel is fast and versatile. Despite it's aerodynamic properties, weighing in at just 1000 grams means it's no slouch on the climbs. Developed in a wind tunnel, the 82mm rim depth and ABLC™ Sawtooth™ dimpling ensure you cut through the air while remaining fully in control in the strongest crosswinds.
Game-changing ShowStopper™ technology makes using carbon rims a viable option in all weather conditions, with water clearing fast from the textured braking surface. A Zipp 177 hub is highly durable and offers improved bearing protection, while 24 Sapim® CX-Sprint® spokes are strong and stiff. Fast engagement and efficient power transfer mean all your watts are translated into speed so you can put in your best performances in road races, time trials and triathlons.
