Zipp 404 Firecrest Tubular Rim (Zipp 360FC)

While Wheelbuilder doesn't offer the Zipp 404 Firecrest (360FC) tubular 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 (360FC) 58 mm profile tubular 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.

By controlling airflow around the back half of the wheel, the Zipp 404 Firecrest tubular is 9 seconds faster than its predecessor 404 model over 40 km at a moderate 10-degree wind angle. At higher wind angles, the improvements are even more dramatic in terms of speed and stability. That’s because Firecrest moves the center of pressure closer to the steering axis so crosswinds exert less side force on the wheel. The result is a more stable ride.

The 26.5 mm wide Zipp 404 Firecrest tubular's upgraded lateral stiffness makes it more responsive to accelerations and more precise when cornering. Its composite structure is designed to absorb impacts by flexing slightly outward, giving you a comfortable ride and long-term durability.

The Zipp 404 Firecrest 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.
