ZIPP 808 FIRECREST CARBON DISC-BRAKE TUBELESS WHEELSET
The Zipp 808 Firecrest Disc Tubeless Wheelset takes Zipp’s fastest aerodynamic features and puts them into a reasonably priced wheel. Fast enough for any day of racing or training, the 82mm rim is the deepest that Zipp has to offer. This extreme rim depth helps riders looking for top speeds to cut through headwinds at a blistering pace. Thanks to Zipp’s patented ABLC Sawtooth dimples over the entire surface of the rims, crosswinds are also dealt with properly. This leads to added stability which in turn, creates a faster and more confident ride. On smooth pavement, the Zipp 808 Firecrest Disc Tubeless Wheels give riders amazing speed while barely adding any weight compared to the high-end NSW version.
Aero does not have to come at the expense of comfort and these wheels are a perfect example. The 808 Firecrest wheels are aerodynamically at their best with 25mm tubeless tires. This allows riders to run lower tire pressures for a more comfortable and controlled ride. A lower rolling resistance is another benefit of the tire accommodations of these wheels. With the ability to get around corners at top speeds and the confident modulated stopping of disc brakes, riders can feel safe chasing their absolute best. The 808 Firecrest Disc wheels are topped off with an affordable yet fast ZR1 hub. Cyclists are chasing higher and higher speeds on the road and the Zipp 808 Firecrest Disc Tubeless Wheelset is a key to achieving them.
