Ridden by Jordan Rapp to a win at Ironman® Canada, the 808 clincher excels whenever the situation calls for an all-around wheelset with a heavy dose of aero attitude. The deep profile and 16/20 front/rear spoke count will satisfy even the most focused time-trial specialists and triathletes, yet it’s stable in crosswinds and stiff enough for the sprinters.
Plus, with the combination of its 81 mm profile and Zipp’s M2CM™ rim technology, the 808 clincher is as rugged as the Rockies, having outperformed all comers in drum impact testing in both the United States and Europe.
New for 2012, the 808 is available in a classic Falcon Grey or our new stealthy Beyond Black color scheme. Both feature our updated 88/188 hubs, with a 7.5 mm-wider rear bearing stance, and a 2-degree cant on the non-driveside flange for increased stiffness and reliability.
Please use 16mm x 0.5mm x 700c rim tape to make tire mounting easier.
Note: this wheel uses our legacy hybrid-toroidal rim shape and NOT the Firecrest®.
