Pros & Cons

  • These Zipp wheels will make any bike look better.
  • High aerodynamic advantage due to the 82 mm deep rim.
  • Side winds have a relatively small effect on the wheels because of their rounded shape and ABCL dimples on the rim.

Description

The Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher road bike wheels have been designed with pure speed in mind. This is a wheelset which has proven itself in numerous triathlons, time trials, and even road races. The familiar Firecrest design is known for having an almost continuous rim width, running from spoke bed to brake track. This leads to improved control over the airflow and improved aerodynamics. The Zipp 808 Carbon Clincher Firecrest is therefore faster and more stable than other wheels with a similar rim depth. The 77/177 hubs have a custom flange geometry and spoke mounts. This further increases the torsional- and lateral rigidity. The Carbon Clincher technology by Zipp also offers excellent stopping power. By using a special type of resin based on motor sports technology, the rim is capable of withstanding the high temperatures associated with braking.

Worth every £ for satisfaction felt during the ride!

Super fast and epic looking wheels to enjoy your ride and brag about it whether your are weekend warrior as me or doing some competitive TT/racing. For a while now had a 50mm and 58mm deep carbon section wheels and jumping to 80mm it hardly made handling any harder in side winds.

Pros

  • Aerodynamic
  • Stiff
  • Looking good
  • Freehub sound epic

prima set wielen voor o.a. tijdritten

Setje wielen gekocht voort tijdrijden. Wielen worden al veelvuldig door ons gebruikt bij de amateurs. Nieuwe uitvoering hebben geen stickers meer maar is dit verwerkt in het carbon. Wel is het zinvol in de gaten te houden dat de bandenspanning max 8,5 bar mag zijn. Verder netjes afgeleverd door firma. (tip kijk wel bij andere internet firma's ivm de prijs!) gr

Pros

  • licht van gewicht
  • nette afwerking
  • strak

Cons

  • voorwiel kan iets windgevoelig zijn.
  • stickers niet onder lak

Detailed product description

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.
