Description of ZIPP 404 Firecrest Carbon Wheelset – Clincher – Centerlock – FW: 12x100mm | RW: 12x142m
Zipp’s 404 Firecrest Tubeless Disc-brake wheel is a go-to speed weapon for any situation. Its aero and crosswind-stable 58mm rim depth is ideal for road races, time trial and triathlon, gran fondos, and endless training over all types of terrain. This wheel features new Zipp cosmetics for that perfect pairing of speed and style. The 404 Firecrest Tubeless Disc brake is infused with technologies developed in Zipp`s Indianapolis advanced development lab. Zipp’s ABLC™ Sawtooth™ Technology uses a complex dimpling pattern to improve aero efficiency. At the center of the 404 Firecrest Tubeless Disc-brake is a versatile and durable new hubset, the German engineered ZR1 DB. If you had to choose just one wheel for road riding and racing, the 404 Firecrest Tubeless Disc brake is a savvy and speedy choice.
In developing the original 303 wheels, Zipp discovered that a wider rim increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering while also providing greater vertical compliance for greater control, comfort and durability. That wider rim profile led ZIPP to develop the Firecrest technology, which revolutionized aerodynamic efficiency and stability for carbon wheels. The proprietary Firecrest rim shape optimizes the aerodynamic profile of the front half and – here’s the revolutionary part – the back half of the wheel. Firecrest moves the wheel’s center of pressure to be more in line with the steering axis for stability in even the stiffest crosswinds. All of that innovation along with the precision control of disc braking gives you a wheel that’s as smooth as it is tough.
Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of Zipp`s carbon rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim’s surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Super-9 Disc. The third-generation of ABLC has up to four times more dimples than before.
