ZIPP 808 Firecrest Disc Carbon Centerlock Tubeless front wheel

The Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless front wheel for disc brakes is a particularly aerodynamic wheel with 80mm rim height.
The 808 Firecrest is particularly suitable for triathlon and time trial or fast flat stages. Despite its superior aerodynamic capabilities, the 808 is comparatively resistant to crosswinds.

At 898g, the 808 Firecrest is no lightweight. However, the aerodynamic advantages easily make up for the weight.

The 27mm wide rims optimized for 28mm tires. This combination combines low rolling resistance, sophisticated aerodynamics, comfort and safety. The 808 Firecrest rim also goes along with wider tires up to 50mm. The installation is very easy with Zipp's "Tubeless Made Easy" system and works even without a compressor. The Zipp ZR1 hubs are state of the art and respond through a 6-pawl body with 66 detent points even faster. 

Highlights and Downsides

  • lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects, excluding wear and tear
  • only 898g and at the same time aerodynamic with 80mm rim height
  • superb Zipp ZR1 hub
  • tubeless tires from 25 to 50mm compatible
  • tubeless made easy: easy and tool-free tire mounting without compressor
  • only compatible with tubeless tires
  • minimum of 25mm tire width
  • maximum 5 bar tire pressure
  • compatible with tubeless tires only!

Compatible tires

The Zipp 808 Firecrest front wheel is aerodynamically optimized for 28mm wide tubeless tires. For more comfort and grip, however, it also copes with wider tires up to 50mm. The wide rims are optimized for lower tire pressures, especially with tubeless tires. The maximum tire pressure is only 5 bar. As a result, however, this leads to a larger contact area, higher comfort, more grip and lower rolling resistance.

The hookless rims of the 808 Firecrest are only suitable for tubeless tires. Folding tires are therefore not compatible with the Zipp 808 Firecrest! The tires can be mounted tubeless or with a conventional tube. An overview of the compatible tires can be found here.

Aerodynamics

The rim bed measures 23mm. The Zipp 808 Firecrest is aerodynamically optimized for 28mm tires. Due to its width, the rim optimizes the tire shape and thus allows a lower air pressure. This not only reduces rolling resistance but also makes riding more comfortable. The rims feature Zipp's characteristic dimple structure. The ensures that the air flows better and with less friction over the rim surface. Overall, this leads to better aerodynamics, lower rolling resistance and higher comfort with the Zipp 808 Firecrest!

Weight

The Zipp 808 Firecrest Tubeless Disc Brake front wheel has a low weight of only 898g, despite the 80mm high aerodynamic rim.

Tire mounting

The rims are optimized for easy, tool-free mounting of tubeless tires. No more need for a compressor to mount tires. Yeah!

Rims

The Zipp 808 Firecrest Tubeless rim is made of carbon. Conventional folding tires require a hook rim to sit securely on the rim. The 808 Firecrest lacks this hook. The tubeless tire design ensures that the tire sits on the rim through the tire pressure. This allows wider tires to be mounted with less air pressure. The rims feature Zipp's characteristic dimple structure. The ensures that the air flows better and with less friction over the rim surface. Overall, this leads to better aerodynamics, lower rolling resistance and higher comfort with the Zipp 808 Firecrest!

Spokes

Zipp makes no compromises and uses the tried and tested Sapim CX-Ray spokes with the 808 Firecrest.

Hubs

Zipp uses the Zipp ZR1 hubs with the 808 Firecrest wheels. The hubs were designed in Germany. They are equipped with sealed and maintenance-free industrial bearings with very low friction.

Lifetime warranty

Zipp wheels are rugged. So rugged that Zipp offers a lifetime warranty against production defects! The warranty is non-transferable and only redeemable with proof of purchase. In addition, you must register for the warranty at Zipp after purchase.
