Super-9 Disc-brake Tubular Disc
A Super Future
Zipp’s first product almost three decades ago was a disc wheel. It’s at the heart of our heritage. Now, Zipp is pioneering the next generation of disc wheel, the new Super-9 Disc-brake Tubular Disc. Road cycling’s latest advancement in performance – disc brakes for road bikes – is coming to triathlons and time trials, and Zipp is ensuring its fastest wheel ever is ready for the future.
Braking on modern time trial and triathlon bikes often has been a challenge. The superior performance of disc brakes changes all that with greater stopping power and more precise speed modulation, all with less hand effort than required by traditional brakes. That means greater confidence in corners, descents, and on technical courses. The disc brake version of the Super-9 disc, 995 grams for the Tubular, retains the light weight of its rim-brake counterparts.
Efficient speed adjustments on technical sections of road are crucial to conserving energy and maintaining speed. Disc-brakes, standard in motorsports, gained prominence in mountain biking, then cyclocross, and now are being embraced on the road. The reason is simple: How you slow down influences how fast you go.
The Super-9 Disc itself, handmade at our factory in Indianapolis, USA, optimizes supreme aerodynamics, power transfer, stiffness, lightweight and durability. Disc brakes for road also open a wider range of tire selections for improved comfort, handling and rolling resistance. The Super-9, with its aero efficiency and stiffness, quickly became our go-to disc wheel for the world’s best time trialists and triathletes and has been ridden to numerous Ironman events, world championships, Grand Tour stages, and gold medals.
The introduction of the Super-9 Disc-brake completes the expansion of disc-brake options across Zipp’s entire carbon wheel lineup, from the disc wheel down to the 32-mm deep 202 Firecrest Disc-brake wheelset.
