There's almost no difference between the v7 and v8 front hubs. Big changes for the v9 though.
The Zipp 88 front hub received an in-line change (February 2014) to increase durability & performance. The retaining ring that was previously used has been elimated(sic) and the spoke slot depth increased.

If the v8 was perfectly fine, why make changes to increase said metric for the v9? You hardly need a degree in deductive reasoning to reach the logical conclusion...

But hey, it's your money. You're free to do with it as you please.

For every person that complains about some product on an internet forum there are thousands out there that don't because they have no problem.

Which companies don't update their products exactly? (I mean the ones that can update, meaning they actually make their product versus shopping for parts...)


Zipp make constant changes because they can (they employ more degreed engineers than most wheel companies have total employees). They design, test and manufacture the 88/188 in the US. With that, they can make improvements whenever they like (to the rims as well... which have also been through multiple revs).


There were 4 - 8 different versions of the 88/188 hub done between 13' and the old products shown in the 4 threads you have posted.


There have been @12 versions between the current hub produced and the oldest Hub you have shown.

My update- I bought some HED Stinger 4 FR's as the UK's ENVE supplier wouldn't give me a price for the 3.4's.
