DISC-BRAKE ERA GOES AERO

Road bikes are ever evolving and ever inspiring. Zipp®’s new 404 and 808Firecrest® Disc-brake wheelsets – available in carbon clincher and tubular versions – offer cyclists everywhere the opportunity to experience superior braking and stopping power to match the speed and stability in our fastest wheelsets. And with our new Firecrest Reborn pricing, aero has never been so affordable.

404 FIRECREST DISC-BRAKE(Carbon Clincher and Tubular)Zipp’s 404 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset is all about road riding and racing. Disc-brakes are poised for growth in road riding and racing and triathlon. The consistency and power of disc brakes provides precision modulation and stopping power, literally at your fingertips. As for speed, the 404 Firecrest is where the Firecrest Revolution began. If you had to choose just one wheel, the 404 Firecrest should be your choice. With its depth of 58mm and Firecrest shape proven in all conditions, it’s a classic all-around performer and the standard by which all other wheels are measured. This industry-changing rim shape was the first deep-profile carbon clincher design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength and handling of a wider rim body.

Firecrest technology, with rims that maintain a near-constant width almost all the way to the spoke bed, was the first aero profile that effectively controls airflow around the back half of the wheel. Firecrest wheels offer stable, predictable handling at every wind angle by moving the center of pressure – what we call Aero Balance™ – the focal point of side forces on the rim – to its optimal location near the steering axis. A wider rim built using a proprietary resin system and manufacturing process increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering yet offers greater vertical compliance for more control, comfort, and durability on rough surfaces.

Combine all that with the performance of disc braking, make the 404 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset an ideal choice for today’s style of road riding and gran fondos with long descents, super technical courses and varied road surfaces. Zipp’s expansion of its lineup of disc-brake wheelsets is at the forefront of a technical renaissance of road cycling.

808 FIRECREST DISC-BRAKE(Carbon Clincher and Tubular)There’s nothing middle of the road about the 808 Firecrest. At 82mm deep, it’s all out aero efficiency. Thanks to Zipp’s revolutionary Firecrest technology, the 808 also offers all out performance for crosswind stability. The new Zipp 808 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset, available as a carbon clincher or tubular, enhances that speed and stability with the superior performance of disc brakes. Simply put, this is the fastest disc-brake wheelset available.

With Firecrest’s unparalleled approach to controlling the wheel’s center of pressure, the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher handles crosswinds with the stability you’d normally associate with a much shallower rim. Add to that best-in-class aerodynamic efficiency, and you have what we like to call Aero Balance™.Plus,thewide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any riding style.

How you slow down plays an important role in how fast you go. Efficient speed adjustments on technical sections of road are crucial to conserving energy and maintaining speed. Disc-brakes gained prominence in mountain biking and then cyclocross and now are being embraced for road riding and racing. It’s no wonder. The consistency and power of disc brakes provides precision modulation and stopping power, literally at your fingertips. The 808 Firecrest Disc-brake builds on the legacy of the 808 as the perfect choice for flat to rolling road rides, races, time trials and triathlon.
