Inget slår fartljudet från zipp 808

Fantastisk känsla och utan tvekan farthöjning och bättre rull. Bra effekt - första tävlingen dessutom med mycket sidovind vilket fungerade utmärkt. Nöjd med köpet!

Pros

  • Aerodynamiken
  • Effektsnål fart

Detailed product description

Showstopper
This exclusive technique resulted in better modulation and increased stopping power. After 2 years of prototyping, extensive testing, the addition of new materials, and the adaptation of existing production processes, Showstopper braking surface can be applied. Showstopper is a coupling of an embedded texture with silicon carbide particles in the resin surface. It increases the surface roughness of the brake track, providing the rider with more consistent and responsive braking.

ABLC SawTooth
The ABLC SawTooth design consists of a marked dimple profile of Zipp. It ensures that airflow is conducted along the surface of the rim for optimum aerodynamics. Also, the stability is improved which provides more comfort.
