Pairing the 82 mm deep Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher with the Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the surest way to guarantee an increase in speed - both are the fastest wheels in their class. Utilising the new 77 hub the 808 is durable, stiff, simple and versatile. With both wheels being clinchers you can enjoy the convenience of standard tyres and tubes with no loss of speed.
The Super-9 Carbon Clincher, which weighs 1,175 g, is an ideal triathlon or time trial setup when paired with the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Time trial superstar Tony Martin of the Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team is a believer, already having validated the Super-9 Carbon Clincher with a German National Championship and a silver medal in London.
Optimizing wheels to perform with precision and control at the depth of the 808 Firecrest® Carbon Clincher is pure engineering science. While the 808 Firecrest’s aerodynamics and stability are proven every weekend in road races, triathlons and time trials around the world, understanding how profoundly good these wheels are only comes from riding the wheel that, as a set, has proven faster than any other.
The Zipp® Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp are obsessed with aero excellence - after all, their first product was a disc. The quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed them to create the Super-9 Carbon Clincher. Zipp have validated their findings in the wind tunnel and refined them further in the “virtual wind tunnel” using powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis. The result? The Super-9 Carbon Clincher optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability -- all with the convenience and low rolling resistance of a clincher.
