Built to perform on every triathlon distance and course, the 404 is the all-round performer. Built to create aerodynamic speed on every steep gradient and flat sprint finish, the 404 will speed you to the finish line. Built to provide stiffness and boost handling on every type of descent and testing corner, the 404 is as comfortable as it is outrageously fast. The 404 was designed to bring you the best of every wheel type, becoming our best-selling carbon wheelset at the TriStore and now available with disc-brake, as well as being tubeless compatible, we wouldn't recommend any other top-level wheelset. 75grams lighter than its 2018 predecessor, Zipp's redesign includes greater aero-balance through ABLC™ Sawtooth™ technology, whilst disc brakes provide the reliability, durability and assurance you need for braking on every different surface whilst also being more aerodynamically efficient. Each and every Firecrest rim is handmade at Zipp's Indianapolis construction site, not only boosting innovation but ensuring the fine quality in a competitive wheel market. Finally, the 77/177 hubs found on the 404 wheelsets improve bearing durability for a more reliable ride as well providing compatibility with 10 and 11-speed cassettes.
With the new proprietary Firecrest rim shape in Zipp's 202, 303, 404 and 808 Firecrest wheels, Zipp wheels make a bigger difference in more ways than ever. Not only is Firecrest more aerodynamic than any other rim design, it improves handling in crosswinds and overall ride quality.
Zipp's superior Carbon Clincher technology is the culmination of two years of intensive prototyping and testing. Zipp worked with their composites supplier to develop an exclusive heat-resistant resin based on the materials used in motorsports brake systems. This proprietary technology improves heat management so substantially that all Zipp Carbon Clinchers pass stringent CEN safety standards.
ABLC™ (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control)
Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all Zipp 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.
