Zipp’s 454 NSW rim is the ultimate all-around speed weapon. The 454 NSW’s undulating proprietary Sawtooth™ profile, takes design cues from nature for our highest performing wheel when it comes to aero efficiency and crosswind stability. A humpback whale’s fast and graceful movements are aided by tubercles on its pectoral fins. These structures inspired Zipp advanced development engineers to, for the first time, systematically apply biomimicry to solve the complex challenge of designing a wheel, with the undulating Hyperfoil™ nodes, that reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force.
HexFin™ ABLC dimple pattern for top aero and crosswind-stability performance with an undulating 53/58mm rim depth
TSE™ for greater efficiency and reduced rolling resistance
Zipp graphics that scream speed, applied using Zipp’s ImPress direct-print technology to help allow the dimples to do what they were designed to do – improve aero performance
