Zipp Tangente 700 Tubular Tire
Zipp Tangente Tubular Tire - It's no surprise that athletes like Chris McCormack - who won on the Zipp Tangente at Kona in 2010 - are seeing the benefits of aero tires. After all, your tires have the highest airspeed of any part of your bike and the front tire is your machineÕs leading edge.
To help the Tangente cut through the wind, Zipp used our patented ABLC dimples to mitigate the 'un-aero-ness' of a round shape at the wheel's leading edge. It took us 14 months and 2 trips to the wind tunnel to get it right, and the 21mm version of Tangente saves up to 9 seconds over 40km compared to a traditional 'file' tread pattern. No other 23mm tire can touch the Tangente at that width, even when paired with a fully toroidal Zipp rim.
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. Because the dimpled pattern resists cracking so well, we were able to use an exclusive extra-light rubber compound for lower rolling resistance and higher cornering grip in wet and dry conditions.
21mm or 23mm widths. Average weight 282g, /- 15g. 38mm, overall length, approximately 34mm functional length. 35mm valve length. Includes tire pressure chart to optimize rolling resistance by rider weight and front/rear use.
