ZIPP 808 Firecrest Tubular Front Disc
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 with 24 2-crossed Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes Straightpull to Zipp 177D hub. This makes its optimized flange geometry for high rigidity and durability of the wheel. Furthermore, it provides an excellent bearing sealing and adjusting the bearing clearance is no longer necessary.
Delivered, the impeller with 12x135 mm quick-release axles including one also further optimized Zipp Quick Release. To be prepared for all common Achsstandards, the hub can be converted with the included caps in no time for using a 12x135mm or 12x142mm thru-axle. Who wants an extra wide translation can built the original 10/11-speed the freewheel body against a Sram XD freehub body using Sram replace 10-42 cassette. Thus, the impeller announced for Srams 1-way street groups is suitable.
The 82 mm high rim has proven Zipp Firecrest rim shape and having an outer diameter 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. Yet to experience a wider road tires better support what cornering grip improved.By the bulbous Firecrest rim shape the rim width of the rim flanges up to the spoke holes remains approximately constant. With this form, it succeeded the Zipp engineers that the air resistance between the windward and leeward side of the rim or less balanced. This makes the Firecrest wheelsets easily handled even in cross winds. 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 guided by micro turbulence airflow with less resistance on the rim.
The Tubular version requires special tubulars to be glued to the rim.
