2017 Zipp 808 NSW Wheelset - Pre Owned

YOUR PRICE: $2,750.00 MSRP: $3,400.00

Designed in Zipp's own secret wind tunnel known only as "the nest", the Zipp 808 NSWs represent the pinnacle of the modern aerodynamic racing wheel. From the aerodynamics, to the hubs and braking surface, every facet of these wheels has been optimized to create a wheelset that provides major performance gains, even over those riding top-end wheels from other manufacturers. The Zipp 808 NSWs have already won at the Pro Men’s Ironman® World Championships and the Elite Women’s UCI Team Time Trial World Championships, and now they can bring you to the top of the podium. 

These wheels are pre-owned, with approximately 50-500 miles on them, and show in excellent condition. Like all of our ex-demo and pre-owned wheels, they ship for free, are fully inspected and certified by our tech wizards here in Sykesville, Maryland, and you are covered by our 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee!

Features:

Aerodynamic Rim w/ Sawtooth DimplesWith its advanced aerodynamics, the 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 in Indianapolis near Zipp’s facility. Zipp's new Sawtooth dimple design consists of 12 nodes that are precisely clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a rate of 50hz at a rider speed of 20mph to further reduce high yaw drag and improve crosswind stability. 

Showstopper Brake Track: When it comes to braking, “good for a carbon rim” wasn’t good enough for the 404 NSW. Zipp wanted braking performance that was better than aluminum rims, and they’ve achieved that goal. The industry leading silicon carbide Showstopper™ brake track delivers unmatched stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or the length of the descent. With...

The industry leading silicon carbide Showstopper™ brake track delivers unmatched stopping power and modulation regardless of weather conditions or the length of the descent. With Showstopper™ braking performance, you’ll need to find another excuse not to ride on rainy days.

Cognition Hubset: Every time a conventional hubset starts to coast, friction within the freehub ratchet mechanism works like a drum brake to slow the rider down. With Cognition’s Axial Clutch™ technology, we’ve reduced this drag by disengaging the ratchet mechanism when coasting. With less internal hub drag a rider can pedal less when drafting in a headwind, achieve higher speeds when coasting in an aero tuck, or opt to stop pedaling a moment sooner before entering a corner and bank that wattage for use exiting the corner. Axial Clutch technology also allows riders to maintain speed through corners that don’t require braking input, thereby increasing corner exit speeds.
