Although the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is designed for durability and impact resistance, at 1,690 grams per wheelset, it is also light weight. Simply put, Zipp set the industry standard for strength and durability in a carbon clincher. With its versatile 58mm rim depth, the 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher stands as Zipp’s pinnacle carbon clincher to overcome the resistive forces slowing you down – whether it’s aero drag, wind-induced steering torque, rain soaked roads, or tight corners.
Although the 404 are pretty light by any standard, these wheels are more focused on pure speed for flat roads, meaning that cyclists looking primarily for versatility or climbing performance should consider the 303 or 202 first.
