Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Disc Wheels - DEMO

$1,349.99 $1,799.99

Zipp engineers have optimized the biomimicry-derived 454 NSW for the ultimate in all conditions braking control—disc brakes. This marks the first NSW wheelset available for disc brakes, offering cyclists the greatest AeroBalance with the superior modulation and stopping power of disc brakes.

The most visually striking and functionally important biomimicry-derived innovation in the handcrafted 454 NSW Disc-brake is SawtoothTM. This patented rim shape achieves something conventional aero wheels cannot; it simultaneously reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force for the ultimate in AeroBalance. SawtoothTM accomplishes this with a series of patented fin- shaped HyperfoilTM nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work together with our HexFinTM ABLC
dimples for improved airflow. Without the need for a brake track on the 454 NSW Disc-brake we were able to extend the HexFin ABLC dimples from the rim’s Hyperfoil nodes all the way to the outer edge of the rim.

*** Please note these wheels have been ridden on a very limited basis and are sold as demo wheels, and are covered by Zipp's warranty as if purchased new. The wheels have been thoroughly inspected and prepped for sale***

Please note all Zipp wheels are listed individually but sold as sets only.
