The Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheelset is built around an upgraded 77 / 177 hubset that features increased bearing protection and durability while requiring less maintenance and no pre-load adjustment. It's comprised of strong 17 mm axles and redesigned flanges with a spoke pattern that optimizes torsional and lateral stiffness. The Sapim® CX-Sprint straight-pull spokes lead to Zipp's 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Disc Rim. At 82mm mm deep and 27.5 mm at their widest point, the 808 provides Zipp's fastest profile for winning time trials or speeding over flat terrain.
Spoke count is 24 rear / 18 front. Claimed weight is 1885 g. XD driver compatible (sold separately). Quick-release skewers, Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extenders with valve-core wrench, and rim tape are included.
