The Zipp Firecrest Tubular features a 58mm profile, it's a classic Zipp wheel that was first produced in the early 1990s. This tubular is still winning races from the Queen K to L’Alpe d’Huez. It now features the advanced Firecrest aero-rim shape for a versatile wheel that can win any race on all terrains. The wheel is complete with black anodised hubs, black spokes and black nipples.
404 Firecrest controls airflow around the back half of the wheel, it's 9 seconds faster than the previous model over 40km at a moderate 10-degree wind angle. The improvements in speed and stability are even more noticeable at higher wind angles. It's due to the centre pressure being moved closer to the steering axis, so crosswinds exert less side force on the wheel.
The wider 27.07mm profile also provides other benefits on the road. Improved lateral stiffness makes the Firecrest more responsive to accelerations and more precise in the corners. Composite structure absorbs impacts by slightly flexing outward, offering a more comfortable ride and excellent durability. - A.D.
