When it comes time to break free from the pack and forge your own way to the finish, you're going to want a set of Zipp's 808s underneath you. These wind-cheaters take fast to a whole new level with 81mm-deep, dimpled, full-carbon rims that boast world-class aerodynamics at a weight that still lets you attack the hills with voracity. Plus, the Firecrest rim shape improves handling in crosswinds, ups the wheel's strength and enhances ride quality, while a special resin mixed in the carbon boosts stopping power and prevents overheating on long descents. And, these top-notch rims are laced to Zipp's precision hubs that boast some of the roundest ball bearings in the industry for maximum speed that's sure to put you at the front of the pack. Strike fear into the hearts of your competitors with the 808s.
Zipp's Visco-elastic Constrained Layer Control takes away the harsh ride of deep-dish carbon rims by sandwiching a layer of viscous material in between two layers of structural carbon, reducing road vibration by up to 10%, giving you a ride that is both blazingly fast and decadently smooth.
