The 858 NSW is one of the most advanced road wheels on the market. Featuring the aerodynamic performance of a deep section rim, but thanks to Zipp's unique rim profiling it is more stable in crosswinds than any other wheel in its class.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
Boasting the performance benefits, stability and response achieved by a shallow rim design and the aerodynamic efficiency of a deep section aero-rim, the 858 NSW has an optimised design, which is the result of many hours in the wind tunnel.
Featuring the most advanced Zipp Sawtooth rim profiling, which consists of a variation in the rim height between 77 and 82mm. This profiling slices through the air when you're in motion, and thanks to the precise curvature around the inner edges, it provides superior cross-wind stability. This wheel design pushed the boundaries of what it is achievable from a deep section aero wheel and it achieves this with market leading excellence.
The ultimate in Zipp hub technology. Every time a conventional hub set starts to coast, friction within the freehub ratchet mechanism works like a drum brake to slow the rider down. The drag between hub shell and driver body during coasting is considered as efficiency loss, especially for road wheels. High drag also can significantly contribute to chain-dropping issues. The drag torque drives the cassette clockwise so the chain gets loose on the load side. The solution? The rear Cognition hub with AxialClutch technology reduces drag by disengaging the ratchet mechanism when coasting. It then uses magnets to re-engage once the rider starts pedalling.
Showstopper is a complimenting pairing of a directional, moulded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin. The current media blast process applied to all Zipp rims increases the surface roughness of the brake track providing the rider with consistent and responsive braking. In order to improve this for the wettest of rides, Zipp has introduced a moulded-in groove specifically tuned for the Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro EVO Brake Pad. The grooves have been optimized to interact with leading edge (relative to the rotation of the wheel) of the brake pad and the four cooling channels. The leading edge of the pad and first two channels efficiently wipe water and debris outward, cleaning and drying the braking surface, while the second two cooling channels have maximum interference with the grooves allowing greater braking force than a smooth rim. The cleaning effects of the groove and pad interaction improve brake feel and consistency even in dry conditions.
Zipp’s ImPress graphics technology prints graphics directly on the wheel, which allows the dimples to do what they were designed to achieve, to control vortex shedding and the rate at which air sheds off the wheel. Managing this is crucial to stability. ImPress graphics also give NSW a distinctive stealthy look.
The 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.
This technological design refers to the individual nodes that are part of the Sawtooth rim design. Each of these structures feature the Hexfin ABLC dimples that stabilises handling in gusting and strong wind conditions by increasing wind vortex shedding. The dimples create a secondary vortex around the outer rim surface, which in turn heightens the wheel control and saves rider energy from being wasted.
The name given to the Zipp NSW variable depth 53/58mm rim profile. This design is the result of rigorous wind tunnel and real-world testing. The rim shape takes natures elegant design solutions and combines their precise engineering finesse to deliver a wheel that performs like nothing else before.
