While Wheelbuilder doesn't offer the Zipp 404 Firecrest (X58) clincher rim for individual sale, we can custom build your dream set of Zipp wheels using this rim. To view our custom build product offerings please visit our Custom Zipp 404 Firecrest Front Wheel, Custom Zipp 404 Firecrest Rear Wheel, and Zipp PowerTap Wheel pages.

The Zipp 404 Firecrest (X58) clincher rim is a classic in Zipp's arsenal that dates back to the early 1990s. Now, with the advanced Firecrest aero-rim shape, Zipp's leading all-around performer is an even greater threat to win any race on any terrain.

Its Firecrest Aero profile is 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 rim weighs just 534 grams, putting it among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers available.

Designed specifically to account for the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tires and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest (X58) Carbon Clincher far exceeds the aero performance of any other clincher rim in its class.  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, Zipp's US-based composites supplier created a new heat-resistant resin exclusively for Zipp. This technology improves heat dissipation so substantially that these are the only carbon clinchers to pass stringent European safety testing without limitations on rider weight or brake pad options.

The Zipp 404 Firecrest (X58) is a great choice for anyone looking for a wheelset that can do it all. It has carried athletes to victory in every kind of event - triathlons, criteriums, breakaways, field sprints, and even Grand Tour mountain stages.

Due to our agreement with Zipp, we can not sell the rim only. We will happily build a wheel with our hubs, or you could also ship hubs to us to build with.

The rim brake Zipp rims are not tubeless compatible. I do have a disc brake 303 tubeless version coming in very soon.
