As the inaugural wheelset in the Zipp NSW Series, Zipp 808 NSW Carbon Clincher offers a new rim shape with greater aerodynamic efficiency and reduced side force as well as a new hubset for increased durability and less drag.

The 808 NSW, with a rim depth of 82mm, is designed for triathletes, time trialists or any cyclist looking for increased speed and stability. The 808 NSW represents Zipp’s more advanced technologies for tangible gains in aerodynamic efficiency and stability.

The 808 NSW provides a 3-4 watt savings compared with the benchmark for excellence, the 808 Firecrest, which means an estimated 90 seconds at 40km per hour over 112 mile (180.25km) Ironman® -distance.

Zipp 808 NSW was developed using more than 40 concept studies using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) post-processing software and multiple wind-tunnel trips, including the Aerodynamic Bike Testing Facility at the ARC Wind Tunnel, a short drive from Zipp’s Indianapolis facility. Zipp 808 NSW technology has been ridden to 1-2 finishes in two world championship events.

In triathlon, Jan Frodeno of Germany won 70.3® World Championships in Austria while fellow German Sebastian Kienle was second. In cycling, Velocio-SRAM Pro Cycling captured gold at the Elite Women’s Team Time Trial and Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team the silver at the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, Virginia.
