Super-9 Disc Brake Carbon Disc Wheel - Clincher by Zipp
As disc brakes become more common on time trial and triathlon bikes, Zipp stays ahead of the game with the Super-9 Disc Brake Carbon Disc Wheel. Though tubulars have long been the go-to for any serious racing, when Zipp started working on a clincher version, it found that the shape of the clincher tire made for a more aerodynamic wheel than the tubular version. With this discovered, Zipp set about making a fast wheel faster in the way only it can. The dimples you see are the key--they create a false boundary layer over the wheel that's inherently smoother than any physical surface could be, so air moves over the wheels as though they're almost not there. The dimples also allowed Zipp's engineers to optimize what air does at various yaw angles, since you're rarely racing on a perfectly still day.

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.
