404 Firecrest® Track Tubular

Racing on the track, small increases in efficiency can yield huge dividends. The 404 Firecrest® Track Tubular is assembled with our stiff and aero 58mm deep 404 rim and connects it to our 333 hubset with the world’s best spokes, the Sapim CX-Ray. Together these components deliver unrivalled stiffness and speed.

The 404 Firecrest rim strikes the ideal balance of rapid acceleration and aero efficiency to excel in any track event. The same aerodynamics, stiffness and stability that made the Firecrest shape a revolutionary technology out on the road produces speed on the track.

At the heart of this 1655g wheelset is our 333 track hubs. Designed from the ground up for the rigors of track racing, this impressively light weight hubset makes use of oversized hub bearings and axles that work together to produce a wheelset with superior load carrying capacity and bombproof reliability. The 333's hubshell also incorporates industry leading aerodynamics and asymmetrical hub flanges on the rear hub for balanced spoke tension, immediate acceleration and flawless tracking through turns.

Available with distinctive Classic White decals, black hubs and spokes.

Firecrest

With the new proprietary Firecrest rim shape in our 202, 303, 404 and 808 Firecrest wheels, Zipp wheels make a bigger difference in more ways than ever. Not only is Firecrest more aerodynamic than any other rim design, it improves handling in crosswinds and overall ride quality.

ABLC™ (Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control)

Advanced Boundary Layer Control (ABLC) refers to the patented and instantly recognizable dimpled pattern found on all of our carbon rims. ABLC smoothes airflow across the rim's surface and is tailored to every model from the 202 to the Super-9 Disc. The third-generation of ABLC has up to four times more dimples than before.

Carbon Bridge™

Carbon Bridge uses a Kevlar® thread in a co-axial helix stitch to bind sheets of carbon to each other in our 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.
