    Aerodynamic and stable for more speed in real world conditions. The Zipp 808 Firecrest 77 is a carbon clincher front wheel that will give you a distinct aero advantage on flat and rolling rides and races.

    Engineered for speed, the 808 Firecrest rim offers tried and tested aerodynamic efficiency to help you to the top step in your next time trial, road race or triathlon. Featuring an 82mm rim depth with a dimpled surface, the 808 rim offers unrivalled aero performance in real world cycling conditions. In fact, the 808 Firecrest handles crosswinds with the stability that you would normally expect from a much shallower rim.

    The 27.5mm rim width gives the tyre a little more volume which, in turn offers improved power transfer as well as more comfort and durability. This is probably the fastest deep section rim in the world, yet its lightweight means it can hold its own on the climbs too.

    Zipp carbon rims achieve lightweight 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.

    With the Showstopper™ braking surface the Zipp 808s offer exceptional stopping performance too. 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 808 Firecrests are made with heat resistant resin for consistent braking performance on even the very longest descents.

    The Zipp 77 front hub is precision made to offer best-in-class durability. The bearings require no preloading and are well protected from the elements.

    Each Zipp 808 wheel is supplied with: a newly designed titanium 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.
