The Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubular Front Wheel has the perfect combination of aerodynamic rim profile and lightweight construction to please even the most discerning road rider.
Zipp's Firecrest technology provides a rim with a near-constant width almost all the way to the spoke bed, which controls the airflow toward the back end of the wheel to provide great aerodynamic performance.
The 58mm deep rims feature Zipp's Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC), a dimpled profile that further elevates the aerodynamic performance of the rim, especially in crosswinds.
Road buzz and shocks are reduced by 10% with the inclusion of a vibration-absorbing material between two layers of rigid carbon on the rims.
The braking surface features a heat-resistant resin to improve longevity and braking performance, especially handy on long descents.
The Zipp 177 hub boasts best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection, allowing for more riding time and less maintenance.
