First impressions of Zipp may leave you thinking it's a company of aerodynamic wheels and components, but don't let that sway you from exploring its line of tires. Zipps new Tubeless Tangente Speed Tire, in particular, is one that has our attention heightened. Much like other tires from the Tangente line, the Tubeless Tangente Speed is designed to lower rolling resistance as much as possible, aiming for better handling and a smoother ride over all kinds of paved and cobbled surfaces. Tubeless technology is then thrown into the mix, smoothing things out further, and providing protection from punctures along the way. These new tubeless tires are modeled after Zipp's wide road clincher tires, the Tangente Speed R28 and R25. As such, they feature the same tread pattern, ensuring grip when cornering, and a high 128-TPI casing that holds onto the road with tacky control. If tubeless protection isn't enough to ease your mind from flats, a polyamide puncture protection layer under tread should help seal the deal. This durable layer stands up to road debris and protects from stray nails, glass, and goatheads when you're riding along.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
