2013 Zipp Firecrest 808 Carbon Clincher Front Road WheelUnmistakeable, hi-tech, and ridiculously quick; the 81mm deep Zipp Firecrest 808 Firecrest Carbon Clinchers provide maximum performance with every stroke of the pedals. For triathletes and road racers seeking superior aero performance, stable handling, and the convenience of clinchers, there's no faster all-around wheel set than the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher.
With Firecrest's unparalleled approach to the wheel's center of pressure, the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher also handles crosswinds with the stability you'd normally associate with a much shallower rim -- making the 808 Carbon Clincher ideal for non-disc-legal courses like Kona. Plus, the wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any terrain and riding style. The 808 Firecrest also has Zipp's 88/188 hubs with a 7.5 mm-wider rear bearing stance, and a 2-degree cant on the non-drive side flange for increased stiffness and reliability.
Zipp full-Carbon Clinchers feature an exclusive heat-resistant resin as part of the composite structure. Utilized in the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher, this technology prevents spikes in rim temperature and tire pressure that can impact performance and handling. In fact, heat dissipation is improved so substantially that Zipp's are the only carbon clinchers to pass stringent European safety testing without limitations on rider weight or brake-pad options. So every rider can tackle even the longest, most technical descents with confidence.
