Since taking the top spot at the 2015 Ironman World Championships the Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Front Wheel has quickly become one of the most sought after wheels in cycling. It is easy to see why, with ABLC SawTooth dimpled rims, the ShowStopper braking track and the fast-rolling Cognition hub.

Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Front Wheel

The Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Front Wheel was certainly greeted with excitement when it won the 70.3 Ironman distance at the World Championships in 2015. Since then triathletes and cyclists around the world have quickly come to see why the wheel is so groundbreaking.

Nest Speed Weaponry (NSW) is the seal that guarantees these wheels contain the absolute most advanced development technology that Zipp has at their fingertips. In the case of this wheel this comprises of over forty concept studies using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) post-processing software and multiple wind-tunnel trips, including the Aerodynamic Bike Testing Facility at the ARC Wind Tunnel, a mind boggling amount of research and testing that has truly delivered one of the best wheels ever.

This has enabled Zipp to create a wheel that will save you 3-4 watts when compared with the existing 808 Firecrest, an already superb pair of wheels. In the real world, this translates to approximately 90 seconds at 40km per hour over a 112 mile (180.25km) Ironman-distance.

One of Zipp's pioneering technologies of late has been the dimpling of their rims for improved aerodynamics. As you would expect, this has been developed even further here with the ABLC SawTooth design. This new design consists of 12 nodes that are precisely clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a much higher rate than regular flat wheels. This acts in a similar manner to the dimples on a golf ball to create tiny vortices that act to displace air and allow the wheel to pass through with less drag.

As much as we are all infatuated by speed, your ability to stop is also important. You'll appreciate the Showstopper silicon carbide brake track that has been developed to deliver even better all-weather stopping performance.

Zipp have developed ImPress graphics so they can directly apply their graphics onto the wheel, thus enabling the dimples to do their work all the way round the rim without being hindered by the graphic.
