Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher Road Rear Wheel

Naturally, we chose to launch our groundbreaking Firecrest® and Carbon Clincher designs with our most versatile wheelset, the 404. Its 58 mm rim depth is a classic all-around performer that has carried athletes to victory in every kind of event – triathlons, criteriums, breakaways, field sprints and even Grand Tour mountain stages.

In fact, our first full-carbon clincher wheelset, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher, has been described as the most heavily anticipated wheelset of all time. And following two years of development for its revolutionary rim shape and carbon technology, we’re confident that the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher lives up to the hype.

The 404 Firecrest features the the 88/188 hubset, with a 7.5mm-wider bearing stance in the rear hub, and a driveside hub canted by 2 degrees for improved stiffness and reliability.

Its Firecrest aero profile is the first deep-profile carbon clincher design to offer the superior aerodynamics, ride quality, strength and handling of a wider rim body. Yet the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher weighs just 1,525 grams per set, putting it among the lightest deep-profile carbon clinchers available.

Designed specifically to account for the differences in airflow patterns between clincher tires and tubulars, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher far exceeds the aero performance of any other clincher wheelset in its class. As Zipp proved with the Paris-Roubaix-winning 303 Tubular, a wider rim offers greater vertical compliance for control and comfort on rough surfaces while increasing lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering. The same holds true for Firecrest rims with clincher tires. And because the hook beads are farther apart, the tire itself takes on a more stable shape without adding rolling resistance.

Heavy continuous braking on carbon surfaces can cause spikes in rim temperature and tire pressure that impact performance and handling – especially with clincher tires. To solve this challenge, our U.S.-based composites supplier created a new heat-resistant resin exclusively for Zipp. This technology improves heat dissipation so substantially that ours are the only carbon clinchers to pass stringent European safety testing without limitations on rider weight or brake pad options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Calidad precio malo Tengo unas ruedas zipp 404 y la rueda de atras se ha roto por el agujero donde entra la valvula de la camara, no he hecho ni 10000km con ellas. El servicio tecnico no lo puede reparar asi que la rueda va a la basura, recomiendo no comprar ruedas zipp. I have zipp 404 wheels and the back wheel is broken through the hole where the valve enters the clincher, I have not done 10000km with them. The service technician can not repair so the wheel goes to waste, I recommend not buying zipp wheels. 02 July 2014

Answer: 
The only real discernible difference between the 2011 and 2012 Firecrest 404 wheels is the decals; the 2011 have solid white decals, while the 2012 use the shadow/ outline style decals.

Answer: 
The Campagnolo version can accept a 9,10 or 11 speed Campagnolo cassette; the Shimano version can only accept 8,9 or 10 speed cassettes. If you want to run 11sp Shimano, you would need to send the wheel to Zipp to be re-dished and have the new freehub fitted.
