THE REVOLUTION GOES TUBULAR.
Zipp’s revolutionary biomimicry-derived 454 NSW wheelset is now offered in tubular rim variants for both disc brake and rim brake applications. The versatile all-rounder wheels are quickly becoming a favorite option for teams on the WorldTour such as KATUSHA-Alpecin, CANYON//SRAM Racing, and Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team. The 454 NSW Tubular’s unmatched combination of superior aerodynamics and crosswind stability, inherent to the rim’s 53/58mm-deep Sawtooth™ design, delivers the confidence-inspiring AeroBalance™ handling riders need in variable wind conditions. The new wheels also take advantage of the light weight rim structure made possible with a tubular design, for outstanding acceleration. With its Hexfin™ ABLC dimple pattern optimized for each braking option, the 454 NSW Tubular delivers the lowest drag available and outstanding braking, whether you prefer disc brakes or our industry-leading all-weather Showstopper rim brake track.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
• Sawtooth™ rim with Hyperfoil™ nodes
