Description of ZIPP 808 Firecrest Carbon Track Tubular Wheelset 2017 - Classic White

When you consider how close the margin of victory might be in a race that lasts just seconds, it is no wonder that trackies are such a detail-oriented bunch. So ZIPP has put all of their expertise into the 808 Firecrest Track Tubular wheelset. Track racing calls for stiff, responsive, aero wheels that accelerate quickly and maintain velocity. At just 1805g the 808 Track wheelset is tuned for speed and because of the dimpled 82mm Firecrest rim shape also for superior aerodynamics, stiffness and stability. But they did not stop their innovations at the rims.

At the heart of this wheelset now is the 333 track hubset. Designed from the ground up for the rigors of track racing, this impressively light weight hubset (front 215 g, rear 270 g) combines with Sapim CX-Ray spokes (20 front, 24 rear), Sapim secure-lock nipples and the 808 Firecrest rims to deliver unparalleled stiffness to satisfy even the most powerful track racers. Oversized hub bearings and axles work together to produce a wheelset with superior load carrying capacity and bombproof reliability. The 333 hubshells also incorporates industry leading aerodynamics and asymmetrical hub flanges on the rear hub for balanced spoke tension, immediate acceleration and flawless tracking through turns.

Firecrest Technology
In developing the original 303 wheels, Zipp discovered that a wider rim increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering while also providing greater vertical compliance for greater control, comfort and durability. That wider rim profile led ZIPP to develop our Firecrest technology, which revolutionized aerodynamic efficiency and stability for carbon wheels. The proprietary Firecrest rim shape optimizes the aerodynamic profile of the front half and - here's the revolutionary part - the back half of the wheel. Firecrest moves the wheel's center of pressure to be more in line with the steering axis for stability in even the stiffest crosswinds.

You'll also see the rim skin is embossed with lot's of dimples of different diameters in a pattern which forces the airflow to form thinner, turbulent boundary layers. This significantly reduces the interference drag. The turbulent layer also adheres to the wheel skin throughout an increased airflow angle of attack, resulting in significantly lower drag in cross-wind situations, which means you have even more control with the ABLC (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) rim. ABLC increases handling performance by minimizing the low-pressure wake left behind the wheel, allowing for greater tire choice with fewer aerodynamic side effects than seen with other designs. Zipp's exclusive VCLC (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) technology dramatically reduces rider fatigue, particularly in the hands, arms, neck, and posterior - while greater control of the tire contact patch simultaneously improves cornering grip and minimizes rolling resistance.

Please note:

For tubular tires only! Only use rim cement (for example Continental). Tufo tubular tire gluing tape must not be used!
