Zipp® developed the Tangente™ High Performance Cork Brake Pad as a response to the intense heat caused by braking on carbon. These pads are designed for Zipp carbon rims and employ a composite cork polymer to reduce glazing and offer consistent brake response.
Tangente High Performance Cork Brake Pad’s unique shape places more material in the front of the pad to improve durability and shed water.
• SRAM / Shimano brake compatible
• Sold in packs of two to retrofit one brake. Purchase quantity two if you plan to replace brake pads in both brakes.
• The Tangente pad may be used on any tubular or clincher rim with a carbon braking surface, but it should never be used on aluminum braking surfaces
