Fast on the straights, stable in crosswinds and tubeless-ready, the Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon TL Disc Wheelset (XDR) will give you the edge. This rim-brake type has Zipp's Showstopper brake track for consistent braking in all weathers.
|Front Axle Type:||9mm QR|
|Tubeless Ready / UST:||Yes|
Zipp’s 808 Firecrest® Tubeless rim-brake wheelset gives you all the aero benefits with having the ability to run lower tyre pressures for increased cornering grip and compliance and reduced rolling resistance, without the risk of pinch flats.
This wheelset is infused with technologies developed in Zipp's Indianapolis advanced development lab. Zipp’s ABLC™ Sawtooth™ Technology uses a complex dimpling pattern to improve aero efficiency. Zipp’s ShowStopper™ textured braking surface delivers unrivalled rim braking performance in wet or dry conditions. At the centre of the 808 Firecrest Tubeless rim-brake is a versatile and durable hubset, the German-engineered ZR1. Zipp’s new wheel cosmetics make this wheelset a perfect pairing of speed and style.

Zipp wheels, handlebars, stems and seatposts come with a lifetime warranty for product issues while riding. The lifetime warranty is not transferrable. Proof of purchase is required.
Zipp's industry-leading silicon carbide Showstopper brake track continues to evolve and improve, providing unmatched stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or the length of the descent.
Zipp’s Sawtooth dimple design consists of 12 nodes that are specifically clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a rate of 50hz at a rider speed of 20mph. Sawtooth accomplishes this by inducing small sheet vortices that shed at a low magnitude, but at a higher natural frequency, thus decreasing the laminar bubble effect on the aerodynamically shielded side of the rim’s profile to further reduce high yaw drag and improve crosswind stability.
Zipp’s sole mission is to help you go faster. That's why its wheels are race-ready before they're camera-ready. For years, Zipp has used a combination of testing methods – wind tunnel, CFD computer simulations, pro athlete evaluations, on-road testing and the RollingRoad ride simulator – to refine aero performance to new levels of excellence. Over the decades of innovation, its engineers have learned to look beyond just focusing on simply reducing aero drag. Instead, the goal now is to reduce aero drag while also minimising the effects of crosswinds on handling. This optimising of aero efficiency and crosswind stability became known internally at Zipp as AeroBalance. The approach began with Firecrest technology and has been advanced with the introduction of the NSW lineup, especially with the Sawtooth technology found in the 454 and 858 NSW. Sawtooth accomplishes this with a series of patented fin-shaped Hyperfoil nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work together with our new HexFin ABLC dimples for improved airflow.
The XDR driver body is a universal mounting system for XD/XDR type cassettes that incorporate cogs with fewer than 11 teeth. It allows for lighter and more versatile drivetrains without requiring new rear axle standards, cassette tools or hub redesigns. The XDR interface is 1.85mm longer than XD and is designed for road hub applications. XDR driver bodies are compatible with all XD cassettes when the cassette is installed with a 1.85mm spacer.
