A revolutionary upgrade to their tried and tested 404 formula; the new Zipp 404 FireStrike Carbon Clincher Wheelset Impress Black is in a class of its own. More stable, stiff and light than their predecessors, these new wheels have the same 58 millimetre rim depth but use Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control for enhanced aero performance.

Zipp 404 FireStrike Carbon Clincher Wheelset Impress Black

Claiming the new top spot in the illustrious Zipp range, the Zipp 404 FireStrike Carbon Clincher Wheelset Impress Black refine rim, hub, and spoke design to redefine Zipps' standard in carbon wheel design.

Designed to bridge the gap between tubulars and clinchers, the rim retains the 58 millimetre depth of its predecessors but extends the brake track width to 27.5 millimetres. This new design enables a more stable structure that offers greater vertical and lateral compliance with increased control, comfort and strength.

Unidirectional fibres have been utilised to handle the tensile and comprehensive loading within the 404's rim, whilst woven fibres in the spoke area increase strength and accelerating rigidity.

Then comes the iconic and stunning dimples, which have been revised for the new rim. This Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control acts to create slight turbulence above the rim's surface while smoothing airflow through smaller vortices to create an exceptional level of control and stability both at high and low speeds.

Often one of the downsides of opting for a carbon rim is this less than dependable braking surface. Zipp have rectified this issue once and for all by overhauling these wheels' surface to make them predictable no matter what the weather. Zipp's Showstopper technology introduces Silicon Carbide to texture the surface, allowing ample braking grip no matter what the conditions are.

The hubs offer further refinement also with a proprietary 88 hub on the front and the new 188 V10 hub on the rear. This new design dramatically increases torsional and lateral rigidity strength while also integrating smooth ceramic bearings that distribute load evenly across the axle. The preload is now factory set and the wheels have a 18/24 CX-Ray spoke configuration with Sapim's secure-lock nipples.

Compatible with Shimano/SRAM 11 speed cassettes, the 404 FireStrike Wheelset comes with rim tape, skewers, valve extensions, a wheel bag and Platinum Pro Evo brake pads.
