Amstel Gold Victory on ZIPP 404 Pave

Amstel Gold Victory on ZIPP 404 Pave

ZIPP 404 Pave wheels were under Team CSC's Frank Schleck as he won the Amstel Gold Race recently. As he crossed the finish line alone at the top of the Cauberg, Schleck had this to say about his biggest win ever: "There was never time to think about winning," said a shocked and ecstatic Schleck. "Obviously, I wasn't a big favorite and I thought the chasers would catch me. Arriving at the finish line, I couldn't believe that I would actually win the race." But win he did on his ZIPP 404 Pave wheels!

ZIPP 404 Pave wheels were sturdy enough, strong, light and fast enough with ZIPP's exclusive "dimpled" aero technology to get the job done and carry Schleck to victory. The 58mm deep cross section allows mud, dust and dirt to clear the rim quickly and efficiently, while the strategic laminate ensures comfort and durability far beyond expectation. Best of all, the ZIPP 404 Pave wheels had a special laminate nearly double the strength of traditional carbon or traditional rims and weigh less than 20g more than the normal super-lite ZIPP 404's. (Front is 600g / Rear is 720g.)

Built by hand on ZIPP's precision hubs, the wheels are super smooth and built to stay that way. Reinforced for the Belgiums Spring Classics in the hands of Team CSC and Schleck, the ZIPP 404 Pave will take the merciless pounding of the cobbles with ZIPP's VCLC (Visco-elastic Constrained Layer Control) technology. VCLC technology delivers a 10% reduction in vibration and muscular road fatigue no matter how fast or how long you are riding. They are the only wheels tough enough to handle Team CSC's cobblestone specialists with greater comfort, unmatched aerodynamic performance and excellent durability.

Team CSC is the only team in the world to have custom built Carbon Wheels for cobbles and the pave' of Europe and ZIPP is the only carbon company to deliver the technology. You can get them yourself to bang on rough roads like the Amstel Gold Race direct from ZIPP Speed Weaponry at www.zipp.com.
