The Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher road bike wheels have been developed with aerodynamics and stiffness in mind. The rim profile is extremely wide and has a curvature which ensures the wind only has a minimal effect on their stability. The Zipp 404 is fitted with 77/177 hubs with a customised flange geometry and spoke retention. This further improves the torsional- and lateral rigidity.

Best wheels I have ever had

Fast, smooth, responsive. By far the best wheels I have ever used. I have ridden these on flat straight roads to 15% climbs and they just keep impressing me. Even with nasty side winds they don't get blown about. I have them on my Trek Madone which is a fast aero bike in its own right. Stick these on and it is ultra rapid. I doubt there is a better carbon clincher wheel on the market for performance and value.

Pros
  • Very fast
  • Great handling
  • Look fantastic
Cons
  • No bags included but I'm being petty

Awesome wheels and great price

Harold, 1 August 2017

very smooth rolling above 20mph

Wheels arrive in good time. The finish on the wheels are not great the edges have access fibre light marks on them, not what you would expect when your paying around £1500 a set.

Detailed product description

The Firecrest aero profile is developed to reduce the air resistance on the front and backside of the wheel. This last development makes this Firecrest wheel different compared to the wheels of the competition. Zipp uses a wider and less pointy rim. Firecrest rims are not only more aerodynamic but also stiffer and more comfortable. Comfortable because the tyre is rounder, which enlarges the stability during turns. An aerodynamic rim ensures you will ride faster.

The Zipp Carbon Clincher technology also promises excellent braking properties. Using a special resin, based on motorsport technology, the rim is capable of withstanding the high temperatures reached under heavy braking.

ABLC Technology
Zipp ABLC technology optimises the advantages gained by Zipp’s patented Firecrest rim profile. The ABLC dimple rim profile creates minor turbulence which guides the airflow inwards, which keeps the air flowing over the rim smoothly and reduces turbulence behind the wheel.
