Description

Two decades at the forefront of aero research mean that Zipp wheels are still the gold standard in performance. Pioneering research conducted by Zipp themselves and validated in the real world by a host of elite riders means you can be sure that every Zipp wheel will give you a tangible advantage. Aerodynamic wheels are faster for every rider, at every speed.

The 808 changed perceptions about deep-section wheels. At first, its 81 mm-deep profile appeared only in time trials and triathlons. And sure enough, its early incarnations netted numerous Grand Tour stage wins and Ironman world championship at Kona. Still, it didn't take long before Zipp riders discovered that the 808's light weight, responsiveness, and solid handing are ideally suited to hilly bike legs, criteriums, field sprints and long days off the front of the peloton.

Key Features:

  • Firecrest rims have a near-constant width from brake track to spoke bed to improve aerodynamics and better control airflow. The rim shape improves stability by moving the wheel's centre of pressure to sit almost directly over the steering axis, where wind-produced steering torque has a minimal effect.
  • Zipp Carbon Clincher technology utilises an exclusive resin, based on materials used in motorsports braking systems, that tolerates the heat caused by braking to provide you with reliability and stopping power.
  • ABLC dimpling ensures that the rim moves through the wind with the ease of a shark through water.
  • Carbon Bridge improves the stiffness and impact resistance of the wheels with the introduction of Kevlar in the wheel construction.
  • VCLC (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) technology absorbs the vibrations from the road, helping the wheel hold the road and transfer power.
  • The wheel uses Zipp's legendary 88 hub, it uses the most accurate Swiss steel bearings available.
  • Rim Depth: 82mm.
  • Spokes: 16 Sapim CX-Ray with external nipples.
  • Max recommended rider weight: 250lbs (Manufacturer claimed).
  • Weight: 810g (manufacturer claimed).
  • Supplied With: Skewer, valve extension, rim tape, brake pads.

Please note this is a clincher wheel and should only be used with clincher tyres.

Zipp warrants its products to be free from defects in materials or workmanship for a period of two years after original purchase.
