If you had to choose just one front wheel, the Zipp 404 Firecrest Tubular front should be your choice. With the depth and shape proven in all conditions, it's the all-around performer and the standard by which all other wheels are measured. The 58mm rim profile is a classic in Zipp®'s arsenal that dates back to the early 1990s. These days, the 404 Tubular is still winning races from Grand Tour stages to ITU triathlons and Kona. At the center of the 404 Firecrest Tubular is Zipp's 77 front hub with best-in-class durability and improved bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed. The result is improved stiffness, durability, simplicity and versatility. With optimized flange geometry and spoke hole attachment pattern with Sapim CX Sprint spokes to optimize torsional and lateral stiffness and robustness, it is a class leading set up.

Precision-engineered hubs along with Firecrest technology create something special. The 404 Firecrest Tubular front weighs just 665 grams, providing best-in-class performance at a light weight, making it perfect for hilly courses as well flat out fast stuff. Firecrest technology, with rims that maintain a near-constant width almost all the way to the spoke bed, is the first aero profile that effectively controls airflow around the back half of the wheel. Firecrest wheels offer stable, predictable handling at every wind angle by moving the center of pressure – the focal point of side forces on the rim – to its optimal location near the steering axis. A wider rim and proprietary resin system and manufacturing process increases lateral stiffness for sprinting and cornering yet offers greater vertical compliance for more control, comfort, and durability on rough surfaces.

Each 404 Firecrest Tubular wheel comes with Tangente Platinum Pro brake pads, Zipp Integrated Valve Extender with valve-core wrench, and quick release. All in, the Zipp Firecrest Tubular front wheel is simply the best all round tub that money can buy.
