Zipp 808 Firecrest Tubular Wheelset from Wheelbuilder.com

With the new Firecrest® rim shape, the Zipp Firecrest 808 Tubular has improved in almost every metric. In fact, the 808 Firecrest is the fastest front wheel Zipp has ever tested. Its 27.5 mm-wide profile is 15 seconds faster than before over 40 km, and now equals or exceeds the performance of any 90 mm-deep rim on the market as well as many discs. At high wind angles, the 808’s aero advantage is even greater, yet Firecrest also makes the 808 remarkably stable.

The Zipp Firecrest 808 handles crosswinds with the stability you'd normally associate with a much shallower rim, making the 808 Tubular ideal for non-disc-legal courses like Kona. The wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any terrain and riding style.

For triathletes and road racers seeking superior aero performance and stable handling the Zipp Firecrest 808 Tubular is a great choice.
