Game changer. Barrier breaker. The Zipp Super-9 Carbon tubular track disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp's Carbon Tubular technology. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp is obsessed with aero excellence. After all, their first product was a disc. Zipp's quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed us to create the Super-9 Carbon tubular. The manufacturer has validated its 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 tubular optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability.
The Super-9 Carbon tubular track disc, which weighs just 995 g, is an ideal track time trial setup when paired with the 808 Firecrest Carbon Tubular or 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubular.
To complete the package, Zipp has refined its venerable 188 rear hub, reshaping the hub body and pushing the non-drive-side flange and bearing out by 7.5 mm on the rear hub to increase overall stiffness and strength. The 188/V9 has 25 percent more torsional stiffness than a leading competitive hub. This measure of stiffness is crucial for the direct power transfer to the rear wheel for out-of-the saddle sprints. The new hub also is laterally (side-to-side) stiffer that its rival or predecessor.
