Description

The undeniable speed of the 404 NSW platform is pretty mean by itself, but whilst you add tubeless compatibility and disc brakes, as the tubeless 404 NSW Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheel has done, then it gets even meaner. It is a an out-and-out race wheel whose braking and more reliable carbon layup mean it isn’t afraid to venture off the tarmac from some gravel time. The truth that it runs tubeless makes it much more eager to take action, as tubeless tires can ride with a lower PSI for more cushion, better grip on uneven surfaces, and not more rolling resistance whilst you rejoin the road. They also puncture less, so dabbling in dirt is not any such game of chance. In spite of the advancements to rim, which is the element of the wheel that Zipp’s tag line of “Speed Weaponry” is normally associated with, we are going to start here with the Cognition hub. Blasphemy, we know, however the Cognition makes a strong case for itself. We’d even go to this point to suggest that the NSW’s Cognition rear hub could also be probably the most exciting innovation now we have seen in factory wheels since Zipp first introduced its bulging sidewalls. The hub owes its sex appeal to Zipp’s Axial Take hold of freewheel design, which features two Metal Injection Molding (MIM) ratcheting rings–one mated to the freehub body and one mated to the hub body. The two rings are machined like a ratchet, so they ramp off of one another whilst freewheeling but engage each and every other right through pedal input. In comparison to a regular pawl design, which if truth be told resembles a drum brake and engages from the inside out, the Axial Take hold of’s MIM rings engage laterally to reduce friction, so the engagement mechanism itself doesn’t tax as many watts from your efforts. We’re acquainted with this model, as now we have seen equivalent mechanisms at the designer hubs featured in top-end custom builds for years now, but Zipp is the first to replace the standard tensioning agent, steel springs, with magnets. This substitution further reduces friction between the ratcheting rings, making for what may …
