Featuring a Sawtooth rim with Hyperfoil nodes and a HexFin ABLC dimple pattern, this carbon front wheel is engineered for top aero and crosswind-stability performance with an undulating 53/58mm rim depth. Wind tunnel, CFD and real-world tested, its patented shape achieves something conventional aero wheels cannot by simultaneously reducing both aerodynamic drag and side force for the ultimate in AeroBalance.
Zipp’s ultimate all-around speed weapon is now tubeless-ready. This means you get all of the aero advantages of the 454 NSW Tubeless Disc-brake wheel with the added benefit of increased cornering grip and compliance with reduced rolling resistance. Its 19mm internal width is also optimised for running wider tubeless tyres at reduced air pressure for improved stability, greater comfort and fewer chances of flats or punctures.
Ready for wherever your next ride takes you, this front wheel is kitted out with Centre Lock disc brake compatibility for powerful and consistent braking operation. Keeping you in full control of the ride, the Zipp 454 NSW Carbon TL Disc Brake Center Locking Front Wheel is a perfect upgrade for riders who want to enjoy greater speed, aerodynamics and an overall lighter weight on their road bike.

Cognition Hub: With the Cognition hub’s Axial Clutch technology, Zipp reduced drag by disengaging the ratchet mechanism when coasting. So you can approach corners at higher speeds, and ultimately, save time. A star-flanged straight-pull hubshell design on the rear hub (rear wheel available separately) distributes the load placed on the hub flange away from the bearings. Zipp also developed a unique scalloped edge hubshell design for the front hub. This scalloped design maintains the bearing bore diameter when high radial spoke tension is applied. That means you get bearings that quietly stay in place, roll faster, last longer, and provide a laterally stiffer hub.
Impress: Zipp has employed ImPress graphics technology on this model, which prints graphics directly on the wheel, to help allow the dimples to do what they were designed to do – help control vortex shedding, the rate at which air sheds off the wheel. Managing this is crucial to stability.
Sawtooth: SawTooth is the name given to Zipp NSW’s patented variable depth 53/58mm rims. Developed utilising the principles of the emerging science of biomimicry, Zipp engineers began the rigorous aero development process of SawTooth utilising the wind tunnel, CFD, and real-world testing. The result is a rim shape that takes nature’s most elegant design solutions and combines engineering precision to deliver a wheel that performs unlike any made before. This patented rim shape achieves something conventional aero wheels cannot; it simultaneously reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force for the ultimate in AeroBalance. Sawtooth accomplishes this with a series of patented fin-shaped Hyperfoil nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work together with HexFin ABLC dimples for improved airflow. The result is Zipp’s highest performing wheel ever released with both aero-drag reduction and reduced side force at all wind yaw angles. This is important because higher wind yaw angles are where bike handling is most affected by the wind.
