The Zipp Tangente Speed R28 Clincher Tire provides superior grip, comfort, and speed that handles pavé as well as it handles fresh tarmac. Measuring in at 28mm wide, Zipp set out to meet the needs of current cyclists who seek the lower rolling resistance and more comfort that a wider tire at lower volume provides. This race-ready tire combines the added grip of a larger contact patch with the reduced rolling resistance that comes with a larger casing to provide superior handling in both wet or dry conditions.
