With the 808 Firecrest Disc Brake wheels Zipp combines its aerodynamic rim with the superior braking performance of disc brakes.
Spoked is the rear wheel 24 with 2-way crossed Sapim CX-Ray Straightpull spokes to zips 177D hub. This makes their optimized flange geometry for high rigidity and durability of the wheel. Furthermore, it provides an excellent bearing seal and adjusting the bearing clearance is no longer necessary.
The impeller with 12x135 mm quick-release axles including one also further optimized Zipp quick release is delivered. In order for all common axle type to be prepared s, the hub with the supplied end caps can be converted in no time for using a 12x135mm or 12x142mm thru-axle. Who wants an extra wide translation can built the original 10/ 11-speed exchange tapes 10-42 freewheel body against a Sram XD freewheel body for use of SRAM.

The 82 millimeter high rim has proven zips Firecrest rim profile and with an outer width of 27.5 millimeters. This ensures even at 25 mm wide road tires for a virtually seamless transition from the tire to the rim flange, which significantly reduces air resistance. Moreover experience a wider road tires better support, which improves cornering grip. By the bulbous Firecrest rim shape the rim width of the rim flanges up to the spoke holes remains approximately constant. This form was able to Zipp engineers that the air resistance between the windward and leeward side of the rim or less balanced. This makes the Firecrest wheelsets even in strong crosswinds rather well. In order to save every watt of pedaling in the fight against the wind, the 808 patented with zips ABLC Dimpleprofil equipped. Just like a golf ball these indentations are derived by micro-turbulence air flow with less resistance on the rim.
The Tubular version requires special tube ripe to be glued to the rim.
