The Zipp engineers create a uniquely tuned rim profile for any combination of rim depth and tyre style. This meant the development process of the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher was much more complex than just adding clincher sidewalls to the 808 Tubular or increasing the depth of the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher.
Zipp have optimised the revolutionary Firecrest aero-rim for an 82mm depth and the unique airflow pattern of clincher tyres. At just 27.5mm wide, this wheel is the fastest deep-section carbon clincher in the world. Weighing just 1,795g, this wheel performs on the climbs.
The 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher can handle the crosswinds, with stability that you would usually find in a much shallower rim. Its wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer, comfort and strength, which makes it the perfect option for almost any terrain and riding styles.
Every Zipp full-carbon Clincher features an exclusive heat-resistant resin to stop spikes in rim temperature and tyre pressure, which can have an impact on performance and handling. Heat dissipation has been improved so much that Zipp's are the only carbon clinchers to pass stringent European safety tests with no limit on rider weight or brake-pad options.
808 Firecrest is designed for triathletes and road racers that demand supreme aero performance, handling stability and the convenience of clinchers, it's the fastest all-around wheelset on the market. - A.D.
Please note this is a clincher wheel and should only be used with clincher tyres.
