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 proprietary braking compound
  • Compatible with Shimano, Campagnolo brakes
  • Recommended for use with carbon road wheelsets

Hi,

It is a set of 2. That's one wheel, or 1/2 of a bicycle's worth.

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?

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.
