Zipp’s Tangente Course G40 (700x40c) is a purpose-built tubeless gravel/off-pavement tyre for smooth control over untamed roads. Grippy for aggressive riding, this tyre provides the control and durability demanded by gravel, dirt, rocks, and mud.
The Tangente Course G40 is a wide (40mm) tyre designed for control, which, in gravel, translates into higher overall speed. In developing this tyre, Zipp began with a chevron center-tread pattern for speed that transitions to an inverted soccer cleat design, then they added XC-style knobs on the edges for the ability to dig in when you need it. Durability was crucial.
The tyre’s casing and bead-to-bead puncture protection strip navigates the fine line between supple and stiff so that grip and performance do not suffer while making an incredibly durable gravel tyre. The tyre’s 40mm width was carefully selected to be most effective with its tread pattern while also fulfilling riders’ evolving preferences for wider tyres for gravel events and off-pavement riding. It’s just what you need for gnarly, all-day riding, and it also performs exceptionally well with Zipp’s widest and most versatile rim, the 303.
