ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT DEFINED 454 NSW Carbon Clincher MSRP $4000.00 Zipp’s new 454 NSW Carbon Clincher is radical by design, evolutionary by nature. Within the flora and fauna, creatures are honed over generations to succeed in a competitive edge within their environment. The results of this natural design process is adaptation − new shapes and forms that achieve a higher degree of efficiency and keep watch over. Utilizing the rules of the emerging science of biomimicry, Zipp engineers studied the surroundings around them for instances of how nature solved equivalent problems of speed, keep watch over, and efficiency for the following generation of Zipp wheels. Bring to mind a humpback whale’s fast but graceful movements way to the special features on the vanguard of its pectoral fins, or the original micro texture of a shark’s skin, which provides it the power to go with the flow effortlessly in the course of the water. These structures inspired Zipp advanced development engineers to, for the primary time, systematically apply biomimicry to unravel the complex challenge of designing a wheel that reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force. Probably the most visually striking and functionally essential innovation in the hand made 454 NSW is Sawtooth™ . This patented new biomimetic 53/58mm-deep rim shape achieves something conventional aero wheels can not; it concurrently reduces both aerodynamic drag and side force for without equal in AeroBalance ™. Sawtooth™ accomplishes this with a series of patented fin-shaped Hyperfoil™ nodes along the inner diameter of the rim that work along with our new HexFin™ ABLC dimples for improved airflow. The result’s Zipp’s best performing wheelset ever realized with wind tunnel proven aero-drag reduction and reduced side force at all wind yaw angles. This is very important because higher wind yaw angles are where bike handling is most suffering from the wind. The 454 NSW&
