This Zipp Tangente Folding Clincher Road Tyre is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
It took Zipp 14 months and two trips to the wind tunnel to get this tyre right. This resulted in the 21mm version of the Tangente saving up to 9 seconds over 40km compared with a traditional non-aero shaped tyre when each was paired with a Zipp rim.
|Use:||Road, Time Trial|
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
As well as being so aerodynamic it virtually cuts through the wind. The Tangente also uses Zipp’s patented ABLC dimples to help the tyre better adhere to any road surface more efficiently than a traditional “file” tread pattern which delivers better cornering and braking. The dimples are not connected to one another, resulting in a lower overall stress in the tyre casing and a smoother rolling and longer lasting tyre.
Tangente clincher racing tyres come in 21mm or 23mm widths. Average weight 235g. Valve stems of 37 to 40mm in length recommended for use with Zipp valve extenders. Packaging includes tyre pressure chart to optimize rolling resistance by rider weight and front/rear use.
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
