I'm looking at new tires for the upcoming season and the new Zipp Tangente SL Speed tubulars are very interesting. Zipp 303s will be my primary wheels and although I weigh only about 135 pounds, I'm looking mostly at the 27mm tire width for comfort. Has anybody ridden these tires yet?

What's your reason for going Zipp instead of the standard Vittoria? They look nice but I haven't ridden them, I'm just curious about your reasoning.

I have a couple pairs of these here but haven't tried yet. They feel thin compared to FMB, Veloflex, even vittoria. But they are supposed to be fast rolling, we'll see.

Hi Finn,
I like the 25mm Vittoria CX III fine and you can't go wrong with them, but you probably inadvertently hit the nail on the head by calling them "standard." Who the hell wants "standard?" I like trying new equipment, faster is always better, the specs are good and I'm intrigued by the 27mm width.
