Description of ZIPP 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Wheelset - QR - Matte White

If you had to choose just one wheel, the 404 Firecrest should be your choice. With the depth and shape proven in all conditions, it's the all-around performer and the standard by which all other wheels are measured. Its 58mm rim depth is a classic all-around performer that has carried athletes to victory in every kind of event and situation - every triathlon distance, breakaways, field sprints and hilly finishes.

The 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is where the Firecrest® Revolution began as the first deep-profile carbon clincher design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher weighs 1690 grams per set, providing best-in-class performance at a light weight.

At the center of the 404 Firecrest is Zipp's 77/177 hubset with best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed. The result is improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility.
Optimized flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim® CX Sprint spokes to optimize torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness. Includes newly designed quick-release skewers with a wider more ergonomic handle to provide more leverage for opening and closing. When closed, lever contours neatly with the frame. New robust hub platform with distinctive graphics.

Precision-engineered hubs along with Firecrest technology create something special. Designed specifically to account for the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tires and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher exceeds the aero performance of any other clincher wheelset in its class. As Zipp proved with the pioneering (and Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders-winning) 303 Tubular, a wider rim offers greater vertical compliance for control and comfort on rough surfaces while increasing lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering. The same holds true for Firecrest rims with clincher tires. And because the hook beads are farther apart, the tire itself takes on a more stable shape without adding rolling resistance.

Heavy continuous braking on carbon surfaces can cause spikes in rim temperature and tire pressure that impact performance and handling - especially with clincher tires. To solve this challenge, our U.S.-based composites supplier created a heat-resistant resin exclusively for Zipp. This technology improves heat dissipation so substantially that our Carbon Clinchers have never had a heat-related failure.

Note: Requires special brake pads for carbon rims!

Good speed
The clinchers give you 2km/h advantage compared to for example C24's. So what used to be your super day with tail eind is now your everyday run. You break all your strava segment records from ones lasting 5 min to ones lasting 60 minutes. On average the advantage is almost 1min per 15 min. It's expensive but you are guaranteed speed. No questions asked. You have to play around with either valve extender or get 80mm prestas. But that's not too bad. Tubulars are probably faster but too much hassle.
