Zipp Tangente ClincherIt's no surprise that more and more riders are seeing the benefits of aero tires. Nor is it a surprise that World Champion triathletes like Andy Potts and Michellie Jones are winning marquee races on the Zipp Tangente. After all, your tires have the highest airspeed of any part of your bike and the front tire is your machine's leading edge. To cut through the wind, Zipp has used their patented ABLC dimples to mitigate the "un-aero-ness" of a round shape at the wheel's leading edge. It took Zipp 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. Zipp has partnered with Vittoria to add a durable yet supple 290tpi casing to the Tangente. Because the dimpled pattern resists cracking so well, Zipp uses an exclusive extra-light rubber compound for low rolling resistance and high cornering grip in wet and dry conditions.
