Zipp's Sharpest Aero Weapon
Zipp's new 858 NSW is incredibly fast in the wind (thanks to its undulating rim shape) and on the ground (thanks to tubeless). Now, the 858 NSW is even better with an improved hubset.
You get the many aero advantages of the 858 NSW Tubeless wheelset with the added benefit of increased cornering grip and compliance with the reduced rolling resistance of tubeless. The wheelset's 18mm internal width is optimized for running wider tires at reduced air pressure. The 858 NSW's undulating rim shape, our proprietary Sawtooth profile, takes design cues from nature for our highest performing wheel when it comes to aero efficiency and crosswind stability.
These structures inspired Zipp advanced development engineers to, for the first time, systematically apply biomimicry to solve the complex challenge of designing a wheel, with the undulating Hyperfoil nodes, that reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force. When it comes time to scrub off speed or stop, disc brakes will give you the confidence and stopping power you need. Simply put, the 858 NSW Tubeless Disc brake is ideal for those focused on triathlon, time trials, or aggressive road riding.
The 858 NSW's Cognition DB V2 Hubset is re-engineered with Axial Clutch V2 for quicker engagement and lower friction. Every time a conventional hubset starts to coast, friction within the freehub ratchet mechanism works like a drum brake to slow the rider down. The drag between the hub shell and driver body during coasting is considered an efficiency loss, especially for road wheels. The solution? The rear Cognition DB V2 hub with AxialClutch V2 technology reduces drag by disengaging the ratchet mechanism when coasting. The AxialClutch V2's wave spring acts to reengage the ratchet mechanism quickly and consistently once the rider starts pedaling. The hubset also is lightweight and durable.
