Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Tubeless Centre Lock Disc Rear Wheel
When it comes to making upgrades to your bike, the best place to start has always been the wheels - this is where you'll find the greatest amount of performance improvements for the money you spend. And if you are looking for performance improvements then the NSW lineup is a fantastic place to start; these wheels are among the most technologically advanced on the planet, and guarantee an incredible combination of stiffness, low weight and aerodynamic efficiency. The 808 NSW is a fantastic, deep-section rear wheel featuring an 82mm deep rim to help you cut through the air with ease. This wheel is disc brake specific, designed for centre lock rotors, and can be used with both clincher and tubeless tyre setups.
One of the most striking features of this wheel is Zipp's ABLC™ SawTooth™ Technology - an innovative dimpled rim texture that has been shown to improve aerodynamic performance as well as bike handling in crosswinds. The wheels also feature Zipp's Impress™ graphics that are printed directly onto the rim rather than over the top of it - allowing those dimples to do exactly what they are designed to do.
The Cognition hub, meanwhile, offers another considerable performance advantage. Traditional freehubs feature a ratchet mechanism that only partially disengages when you are freewheeling. Designs like this mean that a certain amount of internal friction is inevitable, which acts to slow you down on the road. The Cognition hub, however, is designed using magnets to ensure that the system fully disengages whenever you stop pedalling - reducing system friction and ensuring that you can carry your speed more efficiently when freewheeling.
Included: 1 x Zipp Tangente Quick Release Skewer, 1 x Zipp individual wheel bag, 1 x Zipp Tubeless valve – factory installed, 1 x Tubeless rim tape – factory installed, 1 x Zipp Cognition thru-axle caps to fit 12x142 dropouts, 1 x Freehub body spacer – 11 to 10-speed. Please note that a centre lock disc rotor is not included.
Please note: The manufacturer does not recommend using latex inner tubes with carbon clincher wheels. Using latex tubes may void your warranty.
