Zipp claims that the Super-9 Carbon Tubular Disc is wind tunnel tested as the fastest wheel ever. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp is obsessed with aero excellence. After all, Zipp's first product was a disc wheel. Zipp's quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed Zipp to create the Super-9 Carbon Disc.
Zipp's findings are verified in the wind tunnel and refined them further in the virtual wind tunnel using powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis. The Super-9 Carbon Disc optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability - all with the improved performace of a tubular.
The Super-9 Carbon Disc, which weighs 1,025 grams, is an ideal triathlon or time trial setup when paired with the 808 Firecrest or 404 Firecrest front wheel.
It is compatible with cassettes of up to 11-speed to work with all modern drivetrains. It comes with Tangente Platinum Pro Evo brake pads designed to provide optimal braking for carbon surfaces, including a greater surface area for maximum braking power, improved clearance to work with integrated brakes and a new groove pattern for improved braking in wet conditions.
This wheel has the stealthy Beyond Black decal. Includes skewer, brake pads, valve extender, disc pump adapter, and valve hole decal.
