  • Product Description

    Slice through the air with stability, even in a cross wind. The Zipp 808 Firecrest Tubulars are carbon aero wheels engineered to cut through the wind and are ideal for flat and rolling road rides as well as racing.

    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.

    Precision engineered to offer best-in-class durability, the Zipp disc brake specific 177D and 77D hubs offer improved bearing protection with no pre-load needed. 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. Available for either Campagnolo or SRAM/Shimano drivetrains the 177 hub is also compatible with extra wide range cassettes with the XD driver body (sold separately).

    Each Zipp 808 wheel is supplied with: a newly designed quick-release skewer, with a wider more ergonomic handle that contours neatly with the frame when closed, Two sets of thru axle end caps, integrated valve extender and valve-core spanner.

    Race to the podium with a pair of Zipp 808 carbon tubular wheels.
