Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Front Wheel

Pro triathletes like Virginia Berasategui and Chris McCormack build their seasons around a few crucial events where aerodynamics are everything. Pro cyclists like Jens Voigt and Theo Bos log scores of race days every year with huge variations in weather, terrain, and tactics.

No matter what approach you take, the Zipp® 808 provides top-shelf aerodynamics, efficient power transfer, and a surprising ability to handle climbs and crosswinds

And with the new Firecrest™ rim shape in the Tubular and Carbon Clincher versions, the 808 has improved in almost every metric. Now 15 seconds faster over 40km, the 808 Tubular’s aero performance equals or exceeds that of any 90mm-deep rim on the market as well as many discs. And with an 81mm profile and Firecrest’s unparalleled crosswind stability, the 808 is a better choice than ever for windy and non-disc-legal courses like Kona. Those effects – along with a quick, responsive ride quality – also make the 808 ideal for field sprints, breakaways, and all-around road racing.
