2021 808 Firecrest Tubeless Rim Brake Wheelset
Zipp's 808 Firecrest™ Tubeless rim-brake wheelset makes you faster with an 82mm rim depth that's fast, stable in crosswinds, and now tubeless-ready.
That means you get all the aero benefits with having the ability to run lower tire pressure for increased cornering grip and compliance and reduced rolling resistance, without the risk of pinch flats.
This wheelset is infused with technologies developed in Zipp's Indianapolis advanced development lab. Zipp's ABLC™ Sawtooth™ Technology uses a complex dimpling pattern to improve aero efficiency. Zipp's ShowStopper™ textured braking surface delivers unrivaled rim braking performance in wet or dry conditions.
At the center of the 808 Firecrest Tubeless rim-brake is a versatile and durable new hubset, the German-engineered ZR1. Zipp's new wheel cosmetics make this wheelset a perfect pairing of speed and style.
