Description of ZIPP 808 Firecrest Tubular Rear Wheel 2012 - Falcon Grey

High quality tubular rear wheel, the 808 Firecrest has been described as one of the most heavily anticipated wheels of all time. It has a low sensitivity against wind because of the Firecrest technology. The 808 Firecrest is as fast as versatile.
Its Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength, and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the rear wheel of the 808 Firecrest tubular wheel weighs just 818 grams, putting it among the lightest deep-profile wheels available.
You’ll also see the rim skin is embossed with lots 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 hubs out there.

Symbol picture: The free wheel of the delivered rear wheel may differs from the picture.

Note: Requires special brake pads for carbon rims! Swissstop and Campagnolo brake pads for carbon rims must not be used. We strongly recommend ZIPP carbon brake pads!
