2015 Zipp 404 Firecrest Track Tubular Rear Wheel

Product Description

General Information

Zipp laces their 404 Firecrest Tubular rims to their track hubs to create a fast-accelerating all-around velodrome monster.
The Firecrest shape is 26.53mm wide. When paired with the 58mm depth and Zipp's CFD shaping insights, the wheel is very aero. But that's just the obvious. What is less apparent is that the wide shape is laterally stiffer, making it easier to sprint on, easier to hold a line, and less susceptible to crosswinds, which is not insignificant any time you're outdoors.
To maximize strength, Zipp mates the rim to 28-spoke front and rear wheels, the front laced radially, the rear two-cross.
The hubs are designed and made by Zipp. They weigh 188g each, so that there is zero lateral play anywhere in the system. The large flanges provide a solid foundation for the spokes without adding to the weight. Zipp inserts a 15mm 17-4 stainless steel axle through the shell and runs the hub on bearings of their own design—since most bearings come from industrial applications, Zipp wanted something designed to work at bicycle speeds, which are typically lower, and they found a small manufacturer who could do just that.
The hubs are secured to the frame with threaded track nuts. The rear wheel is single-sided with a threaded lock ring.
The Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Tubular Track Wheels showcase how Zipp's one-off thinking can transform the way track wheels ride.
