Zipp 808 Carbon Clincher Front Wheel (QR) Front Wheels

This wheel has been designed to effectively provide exceptional speed, power-transfer and stability. Featuring an 82mm rim depth for superior aerodynamics and the ABLC Sawtooth rim profile enables it to handle crosswinds exceptionally. Although this wheel provides phenomenal rolling performance, it delivers stability unmatched by any other wheel in this category. Showstopper Advanced Braking Surface Showstopper is a complimenting pairing of a directional, moulded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin.  The current media blast process applied to all Zipp rims increases the surface roughness of the brake track providing the rider with consistent and responsive braking. In order to improve this for the wettest of rides, Zipp has introduced a moulded-in groove specifically tuned for the Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro EVO Brake Pad. The grooves have been optimized to interact with leading edge (relative to the rotation of the wheel) of the brake pad and the four cooling channels. The leading edge of the pad and first two channels efficiently wipe water and debris outward, cleaning and drying the braking surface, while the second two cooling channels have maximum interference with the grooves allowing greater braking force than a smooth rim. The cleaning effects of the groove and pad interaction improve brake feel and consistency even in dry conditions. Hexfin Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) The Sawtooth dimple design consists of 12 nodes that are specifically clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a rate of 50hz at a rider speed of 20mph. Sawtooth accomplishes this by inducing small sheet vortices that shed at a low magnitude, but at a higher natural frequency, thus decreasing the laminar bubble effect on the aerodynamically shielded side of the rim’s profile to further reduce high yaw drag and improve crosswind stability. Firecrest Rim Profile A unique to Zipp rim profile that provides more aerodynamic finesse than any other rim design. It also improves handling in crosswinds significantly and increases the ride quality enormously. Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) Using a vibration absorbing material that is compressed between layers of solid carbon laminate on the rim surface. This technology means that when the rim receives an impact from the road, a lot of the shock is absorbed by the VCLC system, resulting in a 10% reduction in road vibration. Wire EDM Electron Discharge Machining allows Zipp to precisely remove internal material from the rear hub after they have been heat treated. This removes any abnormality that can sometimes occur during the heat-treating process, resulting in a perfectly finished hub shell.
