Zipps 858 NSW Carbon Clinchers has seen Zipp take their 454s and transform the idea into a new wheelset, the 858s with a rim depth that is 24mm deeper yet unphased by crosswinds. Using Sawtooth™ rim technology with Hyperfoil™ nodes, the 858s are made more stable and stand firm against strong crosswinds, improving overall handling and reliability in a variety of weather conditions that have been previously considered not possible for a pair of deep-section wheels. Paired with the superior stopping power of disc brakes that the 858 NSWs have been engineered for, you're provided with ultimate control when riding or racing, making for an increase in speed and confidence on steep descents or technical turns. With improved aerodynamics also featured on the 858s, their lightweight carbon construction only adds to their speed out on the roads. The 858 NSWs have also been designed with the ability to be ridden for rides as well as races, with a more durable and reliable design meaning there's no need to keep this wheelset for just race day. Finally, with Axial Clutch technology, Zipps 858 NSWs provide reduced mechanical drag, half that of conventional three-pawl hubs for a more efficient and increased rolling speed.
Superior modulation and stopping power of disc brakes.
858 NSW rolls efficiently whether you are pedalling or coasting. Zipps Axial Clutch technology allows the freehub’s ratcheting mechanism to deliver half the mechanical drag of conventional three-pawl hubs.
The patented biomimetic 77/82mm-deep rim shape simultaneously reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force for the ultimate in AeroBalance.
