Zipp's Firecrest rim rewrote the fundamentals of wheel making, resulting in improved aerodynamics, ride quality, wheel strength and stability in even the strongest of crosswinds. As a result, the entire Firecrest family of wheels makes a bigger difference in more ways than ever.
The Zipp's 77/177 hubs raises Firecrest to whole new level: Winning Best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed. The 177D rear hub features a star-flanged straight-pull hubshell design on the rear hub to distribute the load placed on the hub flange away from the bearings for accurate bearing bores and smooth rolling bearings regardless of spoke tension. Zipp have also taken care to stack the opposing spokes on each arm of the hubshell to balance the load. This increases the fatigue life of each arm and allows us to use less material for a lighter hub.

DarrynMy first purchase of carbon rims and I am so happy with my ZIPP 303 front & 404 rear. My biggest concern prior to splashing the cash was side winds BUT after riding on them I didn`t find this an issue as they performed better then my narrow stock rims. Very happy 10/10 effortless to ride on. Merlins delivery from London to Australia over Xmas break was 13 days . Amazing thank you so much.
