How you slow down plays an important role in how fast you go. Efficient speed adjustments on technical sections of road are crucial to conserving energy and maintaining speed. Disc-brakes gained prominence in mountain biking and then cyclocross and now are being embraced for road riding and racing. It’s no wonder. The consistency and power of disc brakes provides precision modulation and stopping power, literally at your fingertips. The 808 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake builds on the legacy of the 808 as the perfect choice for flat to rolling road rides, races, time trials and triathlon. Pair an 808 Firecrest Disc-brake rear wheel with a 404 Firecrest Disc-brake front… Or rock dual 808s for max aero efficiency.
With Firecrest’s unparalleled approach to the wheel’s center of pressure, the 808 Firecrest Tubular also handles crosswinds with the stability you’d normally associate with a much shallower rim. Add to that best-in-class aerodynamic efficiency, and you have what we like to call aero balance. Plus, the wide rim shape provides efficient power transfer along with comfort and durability, making it an excellent choice for just about any terrain and riding style.
The 808 Firecrest Tubular Disc-brake also offers more versatility and options than ever before in a pure road wheel. Disc brakes for road also open a wider range of tire selections, such as 28 or 30mm tires, for improved comfort, handling and rolling resistance. At the center of the 808 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset is the 77/177D hubset, which offers options for riders to switch wheels from quick-release to thru-axle without tools. The XDR Driver body option allows for expanded cassette ranges including a 10-42.
