Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheelset

Full-carbon clincher wheel set! The 404 Carbon Clincher with Firecrest aero profile has been described as the most heavily anticipated wheel sets of all time. 

Its Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile carbon clincher wheel set design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength, and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the wheel set weighs just 1597 grams, putting it among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers wheel sets available. 

You’ll also see the rim skin is embossed with lot's of dimples of different diameters in a pattern which forces the airflow to form thinner, turbulent boundary layers. This significantly reduces the interference drag. The turbulent layer also adheres to the wheel skin throughout an increased airflow angle of attack, resulting in significantly lower drag in cross-wind situations, which means you have even more control with the ABLC (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) rim. ABLC increases handling performance by minimizing the low-pressure wake left behind the wheel, allowing for greater tire choice with fewer aerodynamic side effects than seen with other designs. Zipp's exclusive VCLC (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) technology dramatically reduces rider fatigue, particularly in the hands, arms, neck, and posterior - while greater control of the tire contact patch simultaneously improves cornering grip and minimizes rolling resistance. Finally, the hubset with a rear hub weight of just 188g and a front hub weight of 88g, ceramic bearings and 17mm axles is lighter, more durable and one of the toughest hub sets out there. 

The “virtual 3 cross” lacing on both sides of rear wheel improves stiffness, achieving 3 cross stiffness in a 2 cross pattern with a new spoke geometry.
