Game changer. Barrier breaker. The Zipp® Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is the fastest wheel ever, with the performance and convenience of Zipp’s Carbon Clincher technology. When it comes to disc wheels, Zipp is obsessed with aero excellence. After all, Zipps first product was a disc. Their quarter-century-long quest for the knowledge of speed allowed them to create the Super-9 Carbon Clincher. They validated their findings in the wind tunnel and refined them further in the “virtual wind tunnel” using powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics software analysis. The result? The Super-9 Carbon Clincher optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability -- all with the convenience and low rolling resistance of a clincher.
The Carbon Clincher’s non-parallel brake track helps to smooth the airflow transition from the tire onto the disc’s surface. It’s a key piece of the aerodynamics puzzle. The Carbon Clincher brake track combined with the Super-9’s wide profile, which runs virtually the same width from rim to hub, create an ultra aero wheel. Our exclusive resin effectively tolerates the incredible spikes in heat caused by braking to provide reliability and stopping power.
The Super-9 Carbon Clincher, which weighs 1,175 g, is an ideal triathlon or time trial setup when paired with the 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher or 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher. Time trial superstar Tony Martin of the Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team is a believer, already having validated the Super-9 Carbon Clincher with a German National Championship and a silver medal in London.
“The future of time trialing and triathlon is with clinchers, and the Zipp Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc is leading the way. It’s about grip, speed, performance and rolling resistance. It’s really about winning and losing,” said Rolf Aldag, a triathlete and former pro cyclist who also is technical adviser Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team. “Tony Martin absolutely trusts the Super-9 Carbon Clincher.”

This is about as good as it gets for a TT specific disc wheel. Fast, stiff and even reasonably comfortable (for a disc). I run Specialized turbo cotton clinchers and this is a really smooth combination. Stupidly expensive yes, but you are getting good back up buying from Zipp. My first wheel developed a crack around the circumference after just a few months of TT use, but PBK/Zipp replaced the wheel without much drama (although it took a few weeks). Hopefully this was just a one-off problem.
