Zipp NSW is cycling's top advance development program, dedicated to engineering the fasted cycling components ever realized. Pushing the pinnacle of speed, the inaugural wheelset in the NSW series, the all-new Zipp 808 NSW carbon clincher wheelset is the most technically advance race-proven Zipp wheel to date. Purpose-built to dominate the competition; it's stronger, lighter and faster than anything on the planet, 3-4 watts faster than the current 808s. The 808 NSW wheelset is packed full of ground-breaking innovations that will surely make this super-aero race wheel a legend. A highly reliable race companion on all the roads you travel, Zipp's proprietary Carbon Clincher technology provides unrivaled strength, durability and reliability with confident awe-inspiring stopping power thanks to the silicon carbide Showstopper brake track. The 808 NSW is a pure road race wheel, the "aero-bullet" in the NSW wheel series, sporting an all-new ultra-efficient aerodynamic rim profile which provides unmatched stability and predictability in the crosswinds. Yet, it still remains extremely lightweight and highly durable, enough for punishing sprints, hilly finishes and triathlon distances. The race-inspired X82NSW carbon fiber rims are laced to an all-new, cutting-edge Cognition Hubset that optimizes strength and torsional stiffness while delivering greater comfort and control. Using advanced Axial Clutch engagement technology, the Cognition rear hub allows it to withstand a greater load over longer duration compared to the competition. This highly reliable, super-quiet and drag reducing hub engagement system is purpose-built for efficiency and ultimate speed. Sporting distinctive ImPress wheel graphics and boasting next-gen ABLC SawTooth technology for improved aerodynamics; the pro-proven Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher Wheelset is primed to dominate the podium!
