Product Description

The Zipp 404 NSW Carbon Clincher rear road wheel offers exceptional all-round performance on every ride. Cutting edge hub and rim technology for when only the best is good enough.

Sawtooth crosswind stability:

The 404 NSW offers enhanced crosswind stability thanks to the Sawtooth dimple design. The 12 nodes are optimized to start aero sheering of 50hz at 20mph which has the effect of decreasing the laminar bubble effect on the shielded side of the rim which reduces yaw and drag.

The upshot of this is that keeping on track in a crosswind will require a lot less effort with Zipp 404 NSW.

Extensive wind tunnel testing goes into the design and development of Zipp rims, so you can be sure of their aero credentials.

Unidirectional carbon rims:

Zipp carbon rims achieve a light weight with strength, durability and an unrivalled ride quality. Uni-directional fibres handle all the tensile and compressive loading within the rim, while woven carbon and silica/ceramic fabric sheets handle all compressive braking forces.

Zipp rims are tough too, Carbon Bridge technology incorporates a 6 bundle co-axial Kevlar thread which offers 50% extra impact protection on the edge of the rim.

Consistent & responsive Showstopper braking surface:

The Zipp 404s offer exceptional braking performance thanks to the Showstopper braking surface. This directional moulded in texture features incredibly tough silicon carbide particles, suspended in the surface resin for a consistent surface roughness that won’t wear-out.

With Showstopper, braking is both consistent and responsive in all weather conditions. The 404s are made with heat resistant resin for consistent braking performance on even the very longest descents.

Rear Cognition hub:

The rear Cognition hub offers the very best in Zipp hub technology. Offering frictionless rolling the AxialClutch completely disengages the ratchet when coasting so you can squeeze every bit of speed out of the descents.

Once you start pedalling a magnetic mechanism delivers rapid re-engagement for an immediate response. The star-flanged, straight pull design means that the load is moved away from the bearings for accurate bearing bores and smooth rolling bearings regardless of spoke tension.

New QR Skewer:

Each Zipp 404 wheel is supplied with a newly designed quick-release skewer, with a wider more ergonomic handle that contours neatly with the frame when closed, Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, integrated valve extender and valve-core spanner.

Ride faster and more efficiently with the rear Zipp 404 NSW carbon road wheel.

      Zipp 404 NSW Rear Wheel

      So I bought into the hype and purchased the 404 NSW wheelset. This was to complement my Madone 9 series bike and I have to admit the wheels do look stunning on the bike and vice versa. Unfortunately, as experienced by others with the previous generation of Zipp wheels, there is brake rub when pedaling out of the saddle which is rather annoying. Also, the wheels I replaced these with are the Dura Ace C24 which in my opinion are far more nimble than the Zipps as one would expect I guess. I cannot comment on the claims that the wheels help you hold speed for longer, which may say more about my ability as a cyclist than the wheels. Oh and the braking is very good though I am yet to test them in the wet. All in all, the wheels were a vanity purchase and I would have been much happier with them if not for the brake rub issue which Zipp claim to have fixed with the new hubs!

      Road Bike Wheel Guide

       
       

      Road Bike Wheels

      Whether you are upgrading or replacing, a new set of wheels is the best way to improve the performance of your road bike. Lighter wheels will enable you to accelerate quicker and climb faster, stiffer wheels will improve cornering stability while aero wheels reduce drag, so you can slice through the air faster.

      With different types of road bike wheel available, not all road bike wheels will be compatible with your bike. In this road bike wheel guide, we will look at the different wheel options to help you choose the perfect new 700c wheelset for your bike.


      Types of wheel

      Traditional rim brake wheels

      Wheels that are designed for rim brake are the traditional road bike wheels. These wheels are easily identified by the flat braking surface on the edge of the rim. This is usually a different colour and/or texture to the rest of the rim. Traditional rim brake wheels have a 100mm wide front hub and a 130mm wide rear hub. These wheels are all compatible with QR or quick release road bike axle skewers.

      Disc brake wheels

      Disc brake wheels don’t need a braking track, so the rim has a continuous profile. Instead disc brake wheels have special hubs that the discs are mounted on. There are two types of mounting for disc rotors: six bolt wheel hubs have, as the name suggests, six holes that the disc bolts into, centre lock hubs have a ridged spindle that the disc slots into. While the front hub is the same width on both disc and rim brake wheels, the rear hub is wider at 135mm or 142mm for thru axle wheels.

      Thru axles

      While some disc brake wheels use traditional quick release skewers, many disc brake wheels use wider bolt-through (thru) axles. Thru axles improve the stiffness of the bike which is especially important for disc brakes as the braking forces are applied much closer to the axle. Thru axles on road bikes are usually 12mm in diameter with a rear hub width of 142mm. Quick release and thru axles are not compatible with each other, so it is important that you choose the correct type for your bike.


      Clincher, tubeless and tubular

      Most road bike wheels are clinchers. This means that the tyre grips the inside edge of the rim for a secure attachment when inflated. Traditional clinchers require an inner tube to stay inflated. Tubeless wheels are very similar to traditional clinchers but have an airtight seal over the spoke holes with a valve attached to the rim for inflating the tyre. Tubeless sealant is then added to the tyre to improve the airtight seal as well as automatically repairing punctures. Tubeless wheels can be used with regular inner tubes by simply removing the valve and sealant then fitting an inner tube. Tubular wheels are different and use special tyres that have an inner tube built in. These are the tyres that most pro riders use, but as the tyre is glued to the rim they are not practical for general cycling.

      Free hub compatibility

      The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette. There are two basic types on road bikes: HG (Hyper Glide) free hubs are the most common and are compatible with both Shimano and SRAM drivetrains, Capagnolo free hubs are only compatible with Campagnolo drivetrains. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule however: some gravel bikes, with one-by drivetrains, use mountain bike style XD cassettes, and some top-of-the range groupsets may also be different.

      The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette.

      Lightweight vs durability

      Lightweight wheels are the best for climbing, but are still built strong enough for fast descending. Aero wheels, with deep section rims are a little heavier but slice through the air more efficiently so are best for rides that don’t have too many climbs. If you ride on rough surfaces then a more durable, endurance or cyclocross wheelset will give you a more confident feel and will last longer.

      Lightweight wheels are best for climbing

      Axles, rim tape and tubeless sealant

      When you choose your new wheels, don't forget the extras you might need to go with them. If everything's compatible, you can of course re-use your existing QR skewers or bolt-through axles, but you might want to upgrade at the same time. Not all wheels come with rim tape to line the wheels with, so you might need to buy this as well. If you are upgrading to tubeless wheels, then you will need to buy tubeless sealant along with tubeless compatible tyres. Most tubeless wheels are supplied with valves and are ready taped.
