At the pinnacle of Zipp's wheel lineup confidently sits the 808 NSW Carbon Clincher. With a host of technological advancements that all contribute to making the 808 NSW an elite-level triathlon and time trial rim, this may be the missing piece from your podium finish puzzle.
With increased gains upon Zipp's standard 808 Firecrest rim, the NSW provides proven energy savings thanks to a new rim dimple design, called SawTooth, that decreases the laminar bubble effect that contributes to drag and crosswind instability. Also, graphics are printed directly on the wheel instead of using stickers that decrease hard-earned aerodynamic development.
At the heart of Zipp's 808 NSW is their new Cognition hubset, which reduces freehub drag by disengaging the rear ratchet mechanism when coasting. The front hub features a scalloped-edge design that maintains truer hub bore diameter in high-tension spoke applications for lateral stiffness and faster-rolling bearings with increased service life, giving you the advantage when every second counts.
Wrapping the efficient rim design is a silicone carbide "Showstopper" brake track that provides worry-free stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or length of descent, thanks to molded-in texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin.
Each Zipp 808 NSW wheel comes with a titanium skewer, Silca valve extender, wheel bag, Zipp Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, Zipp tube (700c x 19-25mm), and Zipp rim tape (700c x 20mm).
