The best choice for non-disc legal courses, the Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC™) dimples deal with any wind angles to keep you running straight and fast. Improved hubs are low maintenance and do not require pre-load adjustment.

Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel 24 spoke 2017
Other manufacturers put out deep section wheels that might be aerodynamic, but they will not have considered their performance in the real world and the affects on stability. This is not a concern with this Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel 24 spoke 2017 though. Zipp have tested and researched this wheel, using a plethora of minutely varied prototypes, computational fluid dynamics and the wind tunnel. It has all been worthwhile process as this has allowed them to produce the fastest deep-section carbon clincher in the world.
The revolutionary Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC™) dimples are here to stay. These ensure smooth airflow over the rim surface. What is new though, is the increase in quantity to four times the number of dimples originally seen. This ensures that stability in all wind directions that make these the perfect choice for non-disc-legal courses like Kona.
Do not store this away on hillier days though, as the rear only weighs 1,030 grams, hardly a penalty, especially when you consider the advantage you will be getting elsewhere. Additionally, the heat resistant resin used on the braking track is exclusive to Zipp and dissipates heat so well that Zipp's carbon clinchers have never suffered a heat-related failure, meaning you can descend in confidence.
Somehow, Zipp have managed to find areas for improvements in this superb wheel, such as the upgrade for this year, the 177 hub. Handily, this removes the need for maintenance, which none of us really have time for or want to be doing! Additionally, this solidifies their industry leading durability thanks to the improved bearing protection. Keeping things even simpler is the fact that no pre-load adjustment is required. Another benefit of the hubs is the flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern, which provides the perfect levels of torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness.
Whether you run Campagnolo, Shimano or SRAM, there is a Zipp 808 Firecrest for you.
