ZIPP 454 NSW Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake Centre Lock Front Wheel 12 x 100



Fusing a state of the art aerodynamic design with advanced materials via the finest manufacturing techniques, the Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake front wheel infuses speed into any riding scenario. From powering up climbs to soloing against the clock, the 454 will provide any rider of any style with a clinically accurate and efficient performance.

A responsive and hardy rim body is realised in a lightweight construction thanks to the use of premier carbon materials and resins. This carbon composition is expertly sculpted into a radical Sawtooth rim profile that has several Hyperfoil undulations along its inner edge that manipulate the airflow to reduce drag and drastically increase crosswind stability across a multitude of yaw angles. A dimpled surface that follows a HexFin pattern supplements the advanced rim shape by smoothing the airflow across the rim’s surface to increase speed further.

The broad internal rim width interacts with tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres by coercing them into a superior cross-sectional profile that, in turn, elicits an increased air volume and a shorter but broader tyre-to-road impression. These traits realise lower rolling resistance, boosted compliance and magnified cornering traction.

A Center Lock disc interface ensures a solid braking sensation while the smooth and durable bearings of the Cognition hub bestow long-lasting, high-level performance. The build is brought together by the renowned Sapim CX-Ray spokes and these, along with an evenly tensioned, 2-cross lacing pattern, grant strength and dependability.
