Description of ZIPP 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Rear Wheel 2012 - Falcon Grey

ZIPP's first full-carbon clincher rear wheel, the 404 Carbon Clincher with Firecrest aero profile has been described as the most heavily anticipated wheels of all time.

Its Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile carbon clincher rear wheel design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength, and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the rear wheel of the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher weighs just 839 grams, putting it among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers available.

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. Finally, the 188 rear hub with its 188g weight and 17mm axle is lighter, more durable and one of the toughest hubsets out there.

Note: Requires special brake pads for carbon rims!
