2021, Zipp, 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless Rim Brake



If you have been riding box-section aluminum wheels up till now, then once you twirl on a pair of the Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless rim brake racing wheels, you’ll feel all of a sudden like you can fly up any hill and overtake on every descent.

What makes the Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless such a great addition to your gear is that they are fast and light enough to be your race day wheel, and durable enough for your daily training sorties. Since these are the Zipp Firecrest, you can definitely count on them being seriously stable in cross winds. That’s thanks in large part to the wind tunnel developed shape of the rims and the added innovation of the Sawtooth indentations along the inside rim edge. The rim profile has been revised to reduce drag while the Sawtooth dimple design includes twelve dimpled nodes on the rim specifically spaced to smooth the airflow and reduce the drag even at high yaw angles.

The Firecrest rim shape moves the center of pressure of the wheel backwards, which increases cross wind stability. That’s why even these 58mm deep profile rims can feel extremely manageable in heavy crosswinds. And thanks to the 26.4mm-wide Showstopper brake track you can run wider tubeless tires which will add to the stability of the shape without compromising rolling resistance. Anyone who has read criticisms about how carbon wheels perform in heavy braking situations, put all that out of your mind because the Showstopper textured brake track working in conjunction with the specially designed brake pads offers the same top performance in wet or dry conditions. No need to worry about overheating while braking either, since Zipp uses a special resin that is more commonly found in motorsport racing, and which can handle huge spikes in friction-caused heat. So you can be assured of the responsiveness in the braking.

Focusing on making them tubeless compatible, the Zipp engineers searched for the most efficient rim width and depth that would also be able to withstand the different forces that working with tubeless tires requires. To ensure tubeless compatibility, the rim bed has internal ridges that lock the tire’s bead in place, allowing you to run low tire pressures. The engineers took special care with the carbon layup in order to ensure the stiffness, rigidity and durability of the wheels, without adding weight. For the hubs on the 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless wheels, Zipp has gone with a durable and high performance ZR1 DB German engineered hubset. The hub design offers a better seal for improved durability while the 66 points of engagement ensure a quicker response the moment you start pedaling.

Adding a pair of the Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless rim brake racing wheels to your collection will enhance every ride and make you feel like you can win every race.
