Faster is better.

The Zipp 404 Firecrest is a carbon wheel fused to a sub-200-gram aluminum hoop using Zipp’s Multi-Material Co-Molding process. Zipp uses unidirectional fibers in the rim itself to increase vibration dampening without sacrificing stiffness. A visco-elastic material is inserted between carbon laminate in the rim to further reduce road vibration. This also provides both vertical and lateral compliance. Woven carbon is used at the spoke holes to ensure strength while woven silica-ceramic and carbon fabric cover the braking and tire-mounting surfaces. The rim is made with Zipp’s Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC), the little dimples that set it apart visually as well as aerodynamically from competitors. It forces the laminar boundary layer toward the front of the wheel to become more turbulent, allowing the air to remain attached to the rim longer, and while this seems like a lot of counterintuitive tech-speak, it means that the ZIpp 404 Firecrest wheels are faster in a wider range of conditions — including yaw angles of up to 20 degrees.
