The all new Zipp 808 Carbon Clincher employs a radical new aerodynamic rim profile, dubbed Firecrest?. Not only is the Firecrest profile more aerodynamic than any other rim design, it improves stability and handling in crosswinds, wheel strength and the overall ride quality. With a wheelset weight of only 1795 grams the new Zipp 808 Carbon Clincher with it's Firecrest rim design is the fastest deep section carbon clincher on the market. For triathletes and road racers seeking superior aero performance, exceptional handling and the convience of clinchers, there is no faster all-round wheelset that the 808 Carbon Clinchers.

New for 2014 is the latest iteration of our 188 rear hub, the V9, along with new spoke-lacing pattern for the rear wheel - refinements that result in improved stiffness and durability. The new hub was developed in cooperation of superstar sprinter Mark Cavendish. The 188/V9 hub has larger precision Swiss steel bearings for increased durability. Our new ?virtual 3 cross? lacing on both sides of rear wheel improves stiffness, achieving 3 cross stiffness in a 2 cross pattern with a new spoke geometry. The 188/V9 has 25 percent more torsional stiffness than a leading competitive hub. This measure of stiffness is crucial for the direct power transfer to the rear wheel for out-of-the saddle sprints and climbs. The new hub also is laterally (side-to-side) stiffer that its rival or predecessor.
