Tangente Course Tire

The name Zipp goes with fast wheels like peanut butter goes with jelly, but we don't typically associate the brand with race-ready tire options. That's changing with the updated Tangente line and its attention to both aerodynamics and low rolling resistance. Sitting in the middle of the line, the Tangente Course Clincher Tire boasts fast-rolling, wind-cutting speed with a new rubber compound formulated for impeccable handling.

Billed as a race-worthy tire for days when the weather is fair and the roads are dry, the Tangente Course utilizes its relatively high, 120 TPI nylon casing for a supple ride and confident road feel. Zipp incorporates a signature rubber compound for exceptional grip to rail corners and jump on the attack, and a puncture protection strip reduces the potential for race-ending flats after you've gotten a gap. To cap things off, these tires feature what Zipp claims is an aerodynamic tread pattern. Given the manufacturer's aerodynamic pedigree, we aren't prepared to second guess that assertion.

  • Crit-worthy, dry-weather clincher that excels in the corners
  • Aerodynamically matched to Zipp wheels for smooth rolling
  • Reduced rolling resistance preserves momentum to line up the sprint
  • Durable and puncture-resistant casing holds up to the road
  • Item #ZIP003Q

Fast tire, but punctures easily.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have gone though 8 of these tires in the past 10 months. cannot withstand chipped asphalt on Arizona highways. They are fast and roll well, hence why I stay with them. I average 220 miles per week of training so I am tough on my tires. My endurance tire of choice is the Vittoria Diamante Pro III which is a heavier tire but is tougher than the roughs I ride on.

GP4000S2 is a nice compromise. Low rolling resistance, nice ride and pretty durable.
