Product Description


When you consider how close the margin of victory might be in a race that lasts just seconds, it's no wonder that trackies are such a detail-oriented bunch. They’re the same at Zipp, which is why they’ve put all of their expertise into the Zipp 808 Firecrest Track Tubular Bicycle Wheel. Introduced in 2013, Zipp’s 808 track offering now features their proprietary Firecrest rim shape. That means triackies now benefit from the same superior aerodynamics, stiffness and stability riders get on the road with the 808 Firecrest.

Track racing calls for stiff, responsive, aero wheels that accelerate quickly and maintain velocity. At 1,909 g/Wheelset, the Zipp 808 Firecrest Track Tubular Bicycle Wheel is tuned for speed with a track-specific dimpled 82 mm rim, 20 spoke count, and Zipp’s ridiculously stout track hubs.

Product Features

  • ABLC™ (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control) - Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on most Zipp rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim's surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Sub9 disc. 2009 sees the third-generation of ABLC, with up to 4 times more dimples than before.
  • VCLC™ (Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control) - Visco-Elastic Constrained Layer Control (VCLC) uses a vibration-absorbing material sandwiched between layers of rigid carbon laminate in the rim. When the wheel receives an impact from the road, much of the shock is absorbed by the VCLC system, delivering a 10% reduction in vibration.
  • Carbon Bridge™ - Carbon Bridge uses a Kevlar® thread in a co-axial helix stitch to bind sheets of carbon to each other in Zipp’s tubular rims. Because Kevlar is 350% more impact resistant than carbon, it can disperse shock more evenly throughout the carbon laminate, making for a rim that is practically bulletproof. In particular, Carbon Bridge reduces the vulnerability of the rim's tire bed, the area most susceptible to damage from impact.
