A speedy choice for the savvy cyclist
The Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is a versatile, do-it-all wheelset that has been proven on race courses all across the globe. With a new, faster, and more stable rim profile with AeroBalance technology, the 404 Firecrest delivers all the expected versatility in a faster, more stable package.
Featuring a depth and shape proven in all conditions, the 404 Firecrest is an all-around performer and the standard by which all other wheels are measured. Its 58mm rim depth is a classic that has carried athletes to victory in many kinds of event and situations—every triathlon distance, breakaways, field sprints and hilly finishes.
Cutting edge technology for every situation.
With the new proprietary Firecrest rim shape in their 202, 303, 404 and 808 Firecrest wheels, Zipp wheels make a bigger difference in more ways than ever. Not only is Firecrest more aerodynamic than any other rim design, it improves handling in crosswinds and overall ride quality.
Bringing in more of their technology, Zipp's ABLC™ Sawtooth™ dimple design helps manage airflow around the rim, contributing to the faster, more stable performance. Showstopper&trade brake tracks feature a complimenting pairing of a directional, molded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin, providing the best carbon braking in the business.
At the center of the 404 Firecrest is Zipp's 77/177 hubset with best-in-class durability and bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed. The result is improved stiffness, simplicity and versatility. Optimized flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim® CX Sprint spokes to optimize torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness.
Packed with years worth of research and development, the Zipp 404 Firecrest will push you to the front of the pack, and help you ride faster and farther.

I have an older pair of 404's that are still great, but old and used. I just upgraded my road bike to Campy 12-speed and wanted to get a new set of 404's for racing. The new set does not disappoint! With the newer aerodynamic design they are very quick and climb like mountain goats. The old set is still fast but the new 404's are freaky fast! After riding them for a few hundred miles I reluctantly took them off because they will be used primarily for racing. The old set reminds me how great racing will be!
