Quick Overview

When Zipp created the 808 wheelset, they missed the memo that deep section wheels only had a place in time trials and triathlons. What they created was a deep section wheel that was lightweight enough to perform in the hills yet stable enough to manage the most technical courses in the world.


Now Zipp has paired the popular 808 design of the past with the new Firecrest rim design to create one of the fastest wheelsets in the world. At 15 seconds faster over 40km than its previous design (more at extreme wind angles) the 808 Firecrest offers a stable, versatile and frighteningly fast ride that any rider can benefit from.


The New Firecrest 808 is available in both Tubular and Carbon Clincher versions


Carbon Clinchers come complete with rim strips and Zipp Cork Composite brake pads

Features/Technology

Firecrest - An new standard in aerodynamics, the new Firecrest 404 and 808 designs improve in durability, crosswind management and straight line speed.

Carbon bridge technology - Need a bomb proof wheel that doesn’t sacrifice performance? The new firecrest utilizes a combination of Kevlar thread and carbon to create a more durable tire bed to keep you rolling smoothly and securely

ABLC - ABLC refers to the dimpled (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) section of the rim. This helps smooth airflow over the surface of the rim. In its third generation design, every dimple of every rim size is strategically placed for maximum performance for that given rim design.
