The 454 NSW delivers aerodynamic efficiency and crosswind stability that far surpasses conventionally shaped wheels. Its undulating 53/58mm-deep rim shape takes cues from some of nature’s most elegant design solutions and combines them with engineering precision for unrivaled durability and performance, while delivering a level of AeroBalance™ unlike any wheel ever made. It is the ultimate mid depth wheel for all around road performance.

  •  SawTooth™ is the name given to Zipp NSW’s patented variable depth 53/58mm rims. This patented new 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 our new HexFin™ ABLC dimples for improved airflow. The result is Zipp’s highest performing wheelset ever realized 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.
  •  The 454 NSW also features our industry leading silicon carbide Showstopper™ brake track that allows you to brake later with more stopping power and greater control regardless of weather conditions or the length of the descent
  •  454 NSW® rolls efficiently whether you are pedaling or coasting. Our Axial Clutch™ technology allows the freehub’s ratcheting mechanism to deliver half the mechanical drag of conventional three pawl hubs.
