Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Road WheelsetThis Zipp 454 wheelset is an evolution in the world of competitive road wheels. Sporting a rim design that has been loaded with the latest in Zipp's racing technological advances, the added aerodynamic finesse and drag reduction leads to exceptional rider stability and a more efficient power transfer to the road. Wind-tunnel tested, these wheels are built to handle strong crosswinds with ease, transferring more power output from the rider to the road than any other wheelset on the market.Exceptional Ratchet EfficiencyAt the heart of these 454 NSW wheels is Zipp's Cognition hubset which comfortably rides the cutting edge in hub design. Whereas a conventional hub effectively functions as a drum brake once the rider stops pedalling and begins to coast, the Cognition hubs disengage the ratchets via powerful internal magnets, effectively putting the bike in neutral gear. The moment you rotate the pedals forward, the ratchet re-engages and applies your power instantly.Features: Material: Rim: Carbon; Hub: Alloy Rim Model: X454NSW Rim Depth: 53/58mm Rim Inner Width: 17mm Rim External Width: 26.4mm Rim Surface: ABLC HexFin Technology Spokes: Sapim CX-Ray Spoke Count: 24 Spoke Lacing: 2-cross Max Tyre Pressure: 125 psi Hub: Cognition Speed: 11-Speed Weight: 835gTechnology: Cognition: The ultimate in Zipp hub technology. Every time a conventional hub set starts to coast, friction within the freehub ratchet mechanism works like a drum brake to slow the rider down. The drag between hub shell and driver body during coasting is considered an efficiency loss, especially for road wheels. High drag also can significantly contribute to chain-dropping issues. The drag torque drives the cassette clockwise so the chain gets loose on the load side. The solution? The rear Cognition hub with AxialClutch technology reduces drag by disengaging the ratchet mechanism when coasting. It then uses magnets to re-engage once the rider starts pedalling. Showstopper: Showstopper is a complimenting pairing of a directional, moulded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin.  The current media blast process applied to all Zipp rims increases the surface roughness of the brake track providing the rider with consistent and responsive braking. In order to improve this for the wettest of rides, Zipp has introduced a moulded-in groove specifically tuned for the Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro EVO Brake Pad. The grooves have been optimized to interact with the leading edge (relative to the rotation of the wheel) of the brake pad and the four cooling channels. The leading edge of the pad and first two channels efficiently wipe water and debris outward, cleaning and drying the braking surface, while the second two cooling channels have maximum interference with the grooves allowing greater braking force than a smooth rim. The cleaning effects of the groove and pad interaction improve brake feel and consistency even in dry conditions. ImPress: Zipp's ImPress graphics technology prints graphics directly on the wheel, which allows the dimples to do what they were designed to achieve, to control vortex shedding and the rate at which air sheds off the wheel. Managing this is crucial to stability. ImPress graphics also give NSW a distinctive stealthy look. Hexfin Aerodynamic Boundary Layer Control (ABLC): The Sawtooth dimple design consists of 12 nodes that are specifically clocked to start aerodynamic shearing at a rate of 50hz at a rider speed of 20mph. Sawtooth accomplishes this by inducing small sheet vortices that shed at a low magnitude, but at a higher natural frequency, thus decreasing the laminar bubble effect on the aerodynamically shielded side of the rim's profile to further reduce high yaw drag and improve crosswind stability.Buy Zipp Wheels & Tyres from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.

Zipp 858 NSW Carbon Clincher QR Rear WheelWith the advancement in rider performance seen with the Zipp 454 wheelset design, Zipp have pushed the evolution of aero wheels into the deeper section category and the result is the 858 NSW Carbon Clincher. With this wheel design Zipp have proven that aerodynamic efficiency and crosswind stability are not only possible with either a shallow rim design or a deep section category, but both can be achieved in the same wheel design.Performance Enhancing. Aerodynamic, Crosswind StabilityThe 858 NSW, with its Sawtooth 77/82mm rim profile achieves exceptional, market leading aerodynamic performance while retaining superb crosswind stability, of which would generally only be found on wheels that use a much shallower rim profile. This wheel design pushes the boundaries of what is possible from a deep section wheel and does it with performance enhancing elegance.The Greatest Rolling Efficiency AvailableThis wheel features the Cognition hub, which provides the greatest rolling efficiency on the market. The hub driver disengages completely when not pedalling, and when you begin to pedal, the driver uses magnets and a unique design to pull the driver back into engagement instantly; this engagement occurs with the slightest forward rotation of the pedals, transferring power from the rider to the road instantaneously.Features:  Rim Material: Carbon  Rim Width Internal: 17mm  Rim Width Outer: 23.7mm  Rim Depth: 77/82mm  Type: Clincher  Max Tyre Pressure: 125 psi  Dimple Surface: ABLC HexFin Technology  Brake Interface: Rim Brake  Spoke Count: 24  Spoke Type: Sapim CX-Ray Straight-pull  Spoke Lacing Pattern: 2-cross  Nipples: Sapim Secure-Lock  Bearing Type: Cartridge  Hub Model: Cognition  Hub Spacing (O.L.D.): 130mm  Freehub: 10, 11-Speed  Weight: 942gTechnologies: Showstopper: Showstopper is a complimenting pairing of a directional, moulded-in, texture with silicon carbide particles suspended in the surface resin.  The current media blast process applied to all Zipp rims increases the surface roughness of the brake track providing the rider with consistent and responsive braking.

The rim shape takes natures elegant design solutions and combines their precise engineering finesse to deliver a wheel that performs like nothing else before. Hyperfoil: This technological design refers to the individual nodes that are part of the Sawtooth rim design. Each of these structures feature the Hexfin ABLC dimples that stabilises handling in gusting and strong wind conditions by increasing wind vortex shedding. The dimples create a secondary vortex around the outer rim surface, which in turn heightens the wheel control and saves rider energy from being wasted.

Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher Rear WheelThe Zipp 454 NSW Carbon Clincher is an evolution in the world of  competitive road wheels. Zipp took inspiration from creatures in nature who  have evolved to the highest levels of speed, control and efficiency. The humpback  whales fast and graceful movement through the water thanks to the edges of its  pectoral fins, combined with the unique texture of shark’s skin to help it  glide through the water were design features that attributed Zipp's creation of  the 454 NSW wheel standard.Optimised Aerodynamic Drag ReductionFeaturing a wind-tunnel proven, performance enhancing biometric 53/58mm  Sawtooth rim profile, the 454 NSW design provides aerodynamic drag and side  force reduction to levels that other wheels cannot achieve. The AeroBalance and  Hyperfoil fins help slice through the air for optimised efficiency and the  inner diameter of the rim features HexFin ABLC dimples to keep stability and  airflow at its maximum. These technologies work together seamlessly thanks to  their ability to shed air away from the rim surface; it is so successful that  these technologies will feature on all future Zipp wheels.Aerodynamic Finesse, Efficiency and StabilityAll this added aerodynamic finesse and drag reduction leads to exceptional rider stability and more efficient power transfer to the road. The unique rim profile combats the air vortex, which slows other riders down; the Zipp NSW design saves energy, provides confidence inspiring stability in gusty, strong crosswinds and transfers more power output from the rider to the road than any other wheel on the market.Exceptional Ratchet EfficiencyAt the heart of this 454 NSW wheel is the Zipp Cognition hub, which is  the ultimate in hub technology. A conventional hub effectively functions like a  drum brake once the rider stops pedalling and begins to coast, the drag caused  by the freehub ratchet and the hub shell is a considerable efficiency loss. The  Cognition hub engages as normal when you’re putting the power down. However,  when you stop pedalling the ratchets are pulled away from the driver via powerful  internal magnets; it effectively it puts the bike in neutral gear. The moment  you rotate the pedals forward, the ratchet will engage once-more and apply the  power instantly.Features:  Material: Rim: Carbon; Hub: Alloy  Rim Model: X454NSW  Rim Depth: 53/58mm  Rim Inner Width: 17mm  Rim External Width: 26.4mm  Rim Surface: ABLC HexFin Technology  Spokes: Sapim CX-Ray  Spoke Count: 24  Spoke Lacing: 2-cross  Max Tyre Pressure: 125 psi  Hub: Cognition  Speed: 11-Speed  Weight: 835gTechnologies:Cognition: The ultimate in Zipp hub technology.

The 10th anniversary edition, with new chapters on the crash, Chimerica, and cryptocurrency In this updated edition, Niall Ferguson brings his classic financial history of the world up to the present day, tackling the populist backlash that followed the 2008 crisis, the descent of "Chimerica" into a trade war, and the advent of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, with his signature clarity and expert lens. The Ascent of Money reveals finance as the backbone of history, casting a new light on familiar events: the Renaissance enabled by Italian foreign exchange dealers, the French Revolution traced back to a stock market bubble, the 2008 crisis traced from America's bankruptcy capital, Memphis, to China's boomtown, Chongqing. We may resent the plutocrats of Wall Street but, as Ferguson argues, the evolution of finance has rivaled the importance of any technological innovation in the rise of civilization. Indeed, to study the ascent and descent of money is to study the rise and fall of Western power itself.

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license. This book provides an in-depth examination of Japan's policy responses to the economic challenges of the 1980s and '90s. While MITI's earlier role in promoting rapid growth has been addressed in other studies, this volume, based on official records and exhaustive interviews, is the first to examine the aftermath of rapid growth and the evolution of MITI's interpretation of the economy's changing needs. Covering such topics as the oil shocks, trade conflict with the United States, and the rise and collapse of the so-called bubble economy, it presents a detailed analysis and evaluation of how these challenges were interpreted by government officials, the kinds of policies that were enacted, the extent to which policy aims were realized, and lessons for the longer term. This book is recommended especially to officials of countries concerned about the challenges that follow on high economic growth and to readers interested in Japan's contemporary economic history.
