Quick Overview

The Super-9 disc has an unassuming profile: It borrows from the perimeter shape that makes the Sub-9 so fast it can actually generate forward lift when paired with our Tangente tires. But in place of the Sub-9’s toroidal bulge, the Super-9 remains flat from its widest point all the way to the hub. This relatively simple-looking shape results in a wheel that’s as fast as the Sub-9 but stiffer than any other disc we make.

Game changer. Barrier breaker. The Zipp® Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. When it comes to disc wheels, we’re obsessed with aero excellence. After all, our first product was a disc. Our quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed us to create the Super-9 Carbon Clincher. We’ve validated our findings in the wind tunnel and refined them further in the “virtual wind tunnel” using powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis. The result? The Super-9 Carbon Clincher optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability -- all with the convenience and low rolling resistance of a clincher.

Note: Zipp wheels for model year 2013, which begin shipping in October 2012, are compatible with cassettes of up to 11-speed to work with all modern drivetrains.

Details

Our Carbon Clincher’s non-parallel brake track helps to smooth the airflow transition from the tire onto the disc’s surface. It’s a key piece of the aerodynamics puzzle. The Carbon Clincher brake track combined with the Super-9’s wide profile, which runs virtually the same width from rim to hub, makes this as fast as any wheel. Our exclusive resin effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide reliability and stopping power.

The Super-9 Carbon Clincher, which weighs 1,175 g, is an ideal triathlon or time trial setup when paired with the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher or 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Time trial superstar Tony Martin of the Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team is a believer, already having validated the Super-9 Carbon Clincher with a German National Championship and a silver medal in London.

“The future of time trialing and triathlon is with clinchers, and the Zipp Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is leading the way. It’s about grip, speed, performance and rolling resistance. It’s really about winning and losing,” said Rolf Aldag, a triathlete and former pro cyclist who also is technical adviser Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team. “Tony Martin absolutely trusts the Super-9 Carbon Clincher.”

You’ll find tire installation a breeze, typically with no tools required. So, just pick the perfect tire for any course and go fast. Compatible with cassettes of up to 11-speed to work with all modern drivetrains. Comes with our new Tangente Platinum Pro Evo Brake Pads, designed to provide optimal braking for carbon surfaces, including a greater surface area for maximum braking power, improved clearance to work with integrated brakes and a new groove pattern for improved braking in wet conditions.
