2009 wheels are shipping now!

Zipp has started to ship their 2009 wheel products well ahead of the announced January 2009 timeline. The new wheel lineup has reduced spoke count, increased stiffness, external nipples and uses the all new 88/188 hubs. With the new hub we were able to increase non-drive spoke tensions, flange diameters, bearing loads and axle diameter. Our hubs now have pre-load adjustment and seals – the two items customers have most requested. 808 and 404 tubular wheels are also shipping with the new toroidal rim shapes that save an additional 3-4 watts when matched with Tangente dimpled tires.
