ZIPP 808 Firecrest Tubular wheelset Disc 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.
With the 808 Firecrest Disc Brake wheels Zipp combines its aerodynamic rim with the superior braking performance of disc brakes.

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.
