    Peace of mind for stopping carbon hoops.

    Stopping carbon braking surfaces used to be rather troublesome, requiring the rider to stay on top of things, due to overheating issues and the subsequent pulsing that followed. Answering the needs of stopping carbon hoops, the Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro Evo Brake Pads deliver an approximate 10% increase in stopping power, thanks to their increased surface area, compound, and deeper grooves.

    The pads' larger surface area comes courtesy of an increase in radial height, helping to disperse heat more effectively for consistent stopping power. This increased radial height also improves brake pad longevity, as there's more surface area for longer wear life. And though radial height has increased, width has actually decreased by 1mm to accommodate larger tires, wider rims, and brake-integrated systems.

    Another cool feature you'll find with these brake pads are their newly updated grooves. Deeper grooves lower temperatures under hard braking, also serving to channel water off the brakes for increased stopping power afforded by drier braking surfaces.

    Zipp and Stop in the wet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm 190cm, 95kg so a bit of mass to slow down. I run these on Zipp 202's and 303's, non "showstopper" braking surface. I ride in the wet a lot and have got lots of fast descents to deal with as well as the normal "urban warfare". I'm running them with both Avid Shorty Ultimate's on my 'cross bike and Shimano Dura-Ace Dual Post on my Trek Domane. I'm a pretty aggressive rider and I'll say that if you are running Zipp Rim Brake wheels you want these pads. Wet or dry they offer great feel and consistent braking performance. I've not had a situation yet where I was wanting for more stopping power in the wet, they sweep the water on the rim away very quickly. You can get right into them without worrying about a sudden "grab" and loss of control.

    In the dry I can go 10,000km on a set, especially in the rear, may have to change the front if I'm doing a lot of elevation change where you really need to scrub speed a lot. Winter riding on the 'cross bike tends to wear them more quickly but I like my Zipps so I'm ok with that.

    Make Your Zipp Wheels Stop Real Good

      Zipp's latest standard composite brake pad for their carbon wheels. As Trevor pointed out below, these new ones seem to be a lot more reliable and consistent in the rain. I've had no issues with these so far and ride carbon wheels daily. Certainly pricey when it comes time to change out pads (80 dollars for front and rear), but well worth the cost.

      Big Improvements from Year's Past

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Braking with carbon rims was once a bit stressful; you really had to be on top of your game to stay safe. Along with improvements in carbon rims in general, you feel every bit of improved braking power with these new pads from ZIPP. These pads give you piece of mind.

      Though the new groove design may feel like more marketing hype, that design is the real deal. Braking in wet weather has never been so smooth. These pads dry out super quick, and slowing down or coming to a complete stop is much more consistent and reliable in the rain. With the new design, I've also found they're much quieter than brake pads of the past.

      Durability thus far has been consistent with most high end carbon brake pads. Nothing life changing in that department, but they're certainly in the upper echelon of durability.

      I'm looking for replacement pads for my pair of Cannondale C1 brakes. Would these be what I want or do you suggest something else?

      Kool-Stop Replacement Brake Pads - Set of 2

      One Color, SHIMANO/SRAM - KSP0002-ONECOL-SHI

      The Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro Evo Brake Pads are a phenomenal brake pad, for carbon rims. I think you'll be pleased with this pads performance over the C1, Zipp has truly hit a home run with stopping power in any condition with carbon rims. I do not recommend any other brake pad over these for carbon rims. Please not these brake pads are only compatible with Shimano or Campagnolo brake calipers.
