Product Description
808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel by Zipp
Have a look at some of the most successful time trialists or the wheel count numbers at the largest tri events and you'll likely see a reoccurring theme, Zipp's deep section 808s. Proven at World Championships and Grand Tours, this speed-demon of a time trial and tri wheel is claimed as being the fastest wheel in the world outside of a full disc. Install the Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher Road Wheel on your aero road, tri, or TT rig and prepare to smash some PRs with its top-level aerodynamic design and with surprisingly good crosswind handling manners as you storm to the finish. Zipp's top priority with the 808 is to slice through the wind as efficiently and effortlessly as possible and as such, decrease the drag so you can go faster with fewer watts. Depth gets you there for sure, but Zipp also better manages the attached air at the rim with its signature Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) dimpling. It utilizes strategically placed and sized dimples across the rim's surface to reduce drag and smooth airflow, allowing the wheel to slice through the air while improving its stability in blustery conditions. ABLC boasts aerodynamic advantages at more real-world yaw angles of 10 to 20 degrees, which compares favorably to many wheels that feature minimum drag numbers at yaw angles of just five to ten degrees -- conditions that occur much less frequently outside of a wind tunnel. In non-techy talk, these wheels go faster and handle better than the competition in the actual conditions you'll experience on the road. Aerodynamics is almost a requirement when racing on the flats, but it's still appreciated on rolling courses and shallow grades and given the 808's carbon construction, it's modest weight won't slow you down when the road turns up. Plus, with its superior drag reduction everywhere else, think about all of those watts you'll squirrel away during the majority of the ride. If you do find yourself on an extended descent, or a technical TT or prologue-e..

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
