Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel

Every new release from Zipp is met with a certain level of excitement thanks to their phenomenal reputation, but this 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel has created a buzz like nothing before.

Let's make the name clear to start. Nest Speed Weaponry (NSW) is the seal that guarantees these wheels contain the absolute most advanced development technology that Zipp has at their fingertips. This comprises 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 testing has enabled Zipp to create a wheel that will save you 3-4 watts when compared with the existing 808 Firecrest. In the real world, this translates to approximately 90 seconds at 40km per hour over a 112 mile (180.25km) Ironman-distance.

One way Zipp have achieved this is the Cognition hubset with Axial Clutch Technology. Ingeniously this disengages the ratchet when freewheeling so that drag is reduced. Additionally, a star-flanged straight-pull hubshell design for the rear hub moves the load placed on the hub flange away from the bearings. The bearings in the front hub will also roll faster and quieter thanks to the scalloped edge hubshell design that ensures consistent bearing bore diameter even when high radial spoke tension is applied.

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. A new design, it consists of 12 nodes that are precisely clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a much higher rate than regular flat rims. 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.

Standard graphics would not do this wheel justice, so 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.

It is all well and good having an exceptionally fast set of wheels, but at some point you are going to need to bring them to a stop. This will be when you appreciate the Showstopper silicon carbide brake track that has been developed to deliver even better all weather stopping performance.
