Specifically engineered for heavier, more powerful riders, Zipp's 808 Clydesdale wheels take fast to a whole another level. These wind-cheaters boast 81mm-deep, dimpled, carbon/aluminum rims for world-class aerodynamics at a weight that still lets you attack the hills with voracity, while Zipp's Multi-Material Co-Molding technology provides extra impact resistance for mile-after-mile durability. And, these top-notch rims are laced to Zipp's precision hubs that boast some of the roundest ball bearings in the industry for maximum speed that's sure to put you at the front of the pack. Plus, they have a higher spoke count for increased stiffness and reliability.

ZippIn 1988 high-end bicycles were constructed of steel, down-tube shifters were on all the pros' rides and toe-clips were still commonplace. And if it weren't for the advent of one company, Zipp, that very year we may still be riding those same bikes today. The rogue start-up out of Indianapolis, Indiana stunned the cycling industry with two technologically advanced carbon fiber disc wheels that promised to revolutionize the bikes we ride and our concept of speed.

Zipp's Sub-9 Disc Wheel offers negative drag at certain wind angles!Just two years after their first disc wheels were unveiled, Zipps were piloted to victory in the Hawaii Ironman, which served as the beginning of the incredible relationship between Zipp and triathletes, a group that's notoriously fickle about their components. Zipp wheels are so renowned in tri circles that they were ridden by a record 66% of the field at the 2008 Ironman World Championships.

Zipp is a leader in the road world, as well. Their first deep-dish carbon wheelset, the 400, was released in 1991 and they've since released a series of incredibly aero and light wheels like their hallmark 404 and the super-fast 808. They've also been the main innovators for other modern technologies such as ceramic bearings, carbon cranksets, integrated aero bars and super-light carbon handlebars. These breakthroughs have brought them victories in countless triathlons, national championships, world championships, Olympic medals and monuments of pro cycling like Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, the Tour de France and more.

Team Garmin-Slipstream rides Zipp bicycle wheels!Zipp's reputation for excellence has made them the choice of many top athletes in every cycling discipline. America's favorite team, Garmin-Slipstream, uses their wheels as well as the Cervelo Test Team of Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre and a large contingent of triathletes like Tim DeBoom and Normann Stadler.

Not only can Zipp wheels and components improve the riding of world-class athletes, but they will add free speed to every one of your rides, too. So come check out our full range of cutting-edge Zipp bicycle wheels and components and experience "speed weaponry."
