Pairing two of their aero-optimized deep profile carbon fiber rims, the 404/808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheelset from Zipp gives you aerodynamic stability, control, and precision in one wheelset. With the 58mm deep 404 up front and the 82mm 808 in back, this wheelset offers the optimized aero pairing that pro's and weekend warriors turn to for aerodynamic performance.
Combining the versatile aerodynamics of the 404 with the optimized performance of the 808, both rims features Zipp's precision manufactured full-carbon rims. Combining the best-in-class performance of their lightweight 404 with the fastest deep-section carbon clincher in their 808, this wheelset is made for raceday.

At the center of the wheelset is Zipp's 77/177 hubset, offering outstanding durability and improved bearing protection. Featuring an optimized flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern, and with the Sapim CR Sprint spokes, the hubs offer increased stiffness, durability, versatility, and responsiveness.
