Through the pioneering use of software to analyse numerical fluid mechanics and the power of a super computer, Zipp is able to understand exactly what makes wheels go fast. Zipp then tests the most promising rim shapes in the wind tunnel and on the road. This process led to the Firecrest rim technology, which allows the airflow and centre of gravity of the wheel to be controlled more effectively, resulting in better aerodynamics, better handling in crosswinds and a better riding experience.

ABLC SawTooth™
This patented rim shape achieves what conventional aero wheels cannot: it simultaneously reduces aerodynamic drag and lateral wind forces, providing the ultimate AeroBalance™. In addition, the ABLC recesses ensure improved air flow. The result is lower aerodynamic drag and reduced lateral wind forces at any angle of attack. This is important because the steeper the wind angle, the larger the influence on the handling of the bike.
