The fastest disc in the world is the Zipp Super-9. And the fastest iteration is the Clincher version. Really.
 
Between the shaping of the wheel, the braking surface, and the lack of friction loss from tire squirm, the clincher version trumps the tubular version. In addition, they were able to create a non-parallel brake track, which, when paired with a 21 or 23mm tire and spun, makes for a better transition between the tire and the disc. The smoother transition is faster.
 
This is before getting into the details of the wide body shape of the disc itself. The brake track width is 26.46mm across, and the wheel widens to 27.5mm shortly below the brake track. This should be narrow enough to fit in most time trial-specific frames, but wide enough to be faster in all wind conditions. The wide body also means a shorter, wider contact patch for the tire where it hits the ground, and that patch has lower rolling resistance than a longer, narrower patch which results from a narrower tire bed.
 
Zipp, which started off building disc wheels, employed all their amazing technology here. You have your ABLC dimples, a 17mm axle, super-precise hub internals, Zipp-designed and Swiss-built steel ball bearings, even their flip-flop hub design. By this, we mean that the hollow-axle road hub and cassette body can be pulled and a Zipp Super-9 track axle installed and you can run this as a track disc as well.
 
The ability to convert this from road to track and back is very much of a piece with the way Zipp thinks about their discs. They know this is a highly-specialized, much cared-for component that could either see near-daily use or only occasional use. They know that their earliest discs are still being used over twenty years down the road. And they built this wheel to see that kind of use, so in twenty years time, you could still be using this wheel, provided you want to.
 
The wheel comes with a Zipp tube, a Zipp quick release skewer, a set of Zipp Platinum Pro Evo brake pads, pump adapter for reaching the valve, and five Zipp stickers to cover the valve hole.
 
The Zipp Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc Wheel is the fastest disc you can find.
