It is time to practice your celebrations and acceptance speeches as the Zipp404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel 2017 is a proven winner from breakaways, bunch sprints, hilltop finishes and any length of triathlon.
The Firecrest revolutions started with the Zipp 404 range, using a wider rim body to create supreme aerodynamics, strength, handling and ride quality.
Somehow, Zipp has managed to find areas for improvements in this superb wheel, such as the upgrade for this year to the 77/177 hubset. Handily, this removes the need for maintenance, which none of us really have time for or want to be doing! Additionally, this solidifies their industry leading durability thanks to the improved bearing protection. Keeping things even simpler is the fact that no pre-load adjustment is required. Another benefit of the hubs is the flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern to provide the perfect levels of torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness.
Zipp understands the appeal of clincher tyres to amateur riders, so have specifically designed this clincher version so that the difference in airflow is not an issue. You get all the comfort and control of the wide rim, which also brings superb lateral stiffness to keep you confident through the corners and allow for you efforts to be converted efficiently to speed.
The revolutionary Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC™) dimples are here to stay thanks to their ability to smooth airflow over the rim surface. What is new though, is the increase in quantity to four times the number of dimples originally seen.
Finally, you need never swap these out when your rides will involve heavy continuous braking as the best resistant resin used on the braking track is exclusive to Zipp and dissipates heat so well that Zipp's carbon clinchers have never suffered a heat-related failure.
Whether you run Campagnolo, Shimano or SRAM, there is a Zipp 404 Firecrest for you so it is time to unlock your race winning potential.
