Zipp 858 NSW Rim Brake Carbon Clincher Front Wheel
The Zipp 858 NSW Rim Brake Carbon Clincher Front Wheel has been designed to offer high levels of performance and efficiency across varied conditions. The patented biomimetic 77/82mm-deep rim shape simultaneously increases aerodynamics for reduced drag and increased speed, whilst maintaining stability in cross-winds; a combination previously deemed to be impossible.
Thanks to this revolutionary design, cyclists can ride confidently on deep section wheels regardless of the conditions. This opens up many doors, as fast, deep, aerodynamic options are no longer confined to race environments, meaning your training rides are about to get a whole lot quicker.
Similarly, thanks to its shallower 77mm sections the ride is more compliant and comfortable than that of a traditional deep section aero wheel, providing light, responsive handling for confidence inspiring cornering and descending. Featuring Zipp's highly regarded NSW ShowStopper™ brake track, the braking performance is second to none, offering a controlled, modulated feel, no matter the velocity or gradient.
The hub is designed to accommodate a standard 100mm quick release road fork. Utilising steel cartridge bearings, grit and grime are kept on the outside, ensuring smooth spinning all year round, regardless of the external conditions. Featuring Sapim CX-Ray spokes, aerodynamics are further increased, whilst the aluminium nipples offer high levels of strength and durability in a lightweight package.
All in all, the 858 NSW front wheel's revolutionary design has blurred the lines between race and training wheels indefinitely. No longer are cyclists forced to choose between aerodynamics and control, this wheel offers both in bucket loads, making it the perfect option for anyone chasing single wheel versatility, in a lightweight, fast and aesthetically pleasing package.
