2013 Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher Front Wheel - Beyond Black


Out of Stock


The Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher is incredibly versatile. The 58mm rim depth is a classic, versatile wheel that can be used for any type of event, including triathlons, criteriums, field sprints, breakaways and Grand Tour mountain stages.

404 is Zipp's first full-carbon clincher wheelset, with two years of development to create the revolutionary rim shape and carbon technology. It's the first deep-profile carbon clincher design that offers superior aerodynamic, strength, handling and ride quality of a wider rim body. Weighing just 1,525g per set, it's the lightest deep-profile carbon clincher available.

Made to handle the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tyres and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher surpasses the aero performance of any other clincher wheelset in the same category. The wider rim offers improved vertical compliance for increased control and comfort on rough surfaces, along with lateral stiffness for sprints and cornering. Its hook beads are further apart for a more stable shape without rolling resistance.

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. - A.D.

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: 58mm.
  • Spokes: 16 Sapim CX-Ray with external nipples.
