Zipp Tangente Tubular Tire:
The only tire developed in the wind-tunnel. Not tested, not designed and then tested, but actually designed to optimize aerodynamic performance. Not only that but it one of the best gripping tires you'll ever ride. Zipp designed the entire tire and paid particular attention to the tread pattern. In fact they found that by using their patented ABLC dimples they greatly reduced teh drag. It took Zipp 14 months and 2 trips to the wind tunnel to get it right, but the dimples will save you 1-3 watts, or up to 9 seconds over 40km. That's a big deal.

But the Tangente is not just a delicate special event tire. Thanks to Zipp's partnership with Vittoria, the Tangente sports a durable yet supple 290tpi casing. In addition, because of the dimpled pattern resists cracking so well, Zipp was able to use an exclusive an extra-light rubber compound for low rolling resistance and high cornering grip in wet and dry conditions.

Available in:
  • 700x21 (260g) or 700x23 (270g)

    Inflation Suggestions: Every wonder what pressure to run your tires at? Well Zipp addressed this question while developing the Tangente. The table shows it's a lot less pressure than you think!
