New for 2014, the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is built with a the latest iteration of our 188 rear hub, the V9, along with new spoke-lacing pattern for the rear wheel - refinements that result in improved stiffness and durability. The new hub was developed in cooperation of superstar sprinter Mark Cavendish of the Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team and is in use by other top pro cyclists and triathletes including Pete Jacobs and Mirinda Carfrae.

The 808 Firecrest is meticulously designed for lightness and aerodynamic efficiency.  Thanks to its ideal center of wheel pressure, the Carbon Clincher handles crosswinds with the poise and stability you'd expect from something with a much shallower rim - making it ideally suited for non-disc-legal courses like Kona.  Its wide rim shape also allows for efficient power transfer, comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for any terrain or riding style.  All of Zipp's Carbon Clinchers use a heat-resistant resin to prevent spikes in rim temperature and tire pressure, which might otherwise affect your performance.  Superior aero performance, rock-solid handling and the convenience of clinchers make this a must-have for serious triathletes and road racers.
