Maybe you would get answers in the wheels subforum where this kind of question seems to belong?

PS: What's "in watt mode"?

Zipp is a little more narrow, 21mm max width vs 22.8mm in the Corima. But dimples.

If you can swing a Super9 (and if it fits your bike of course...), that's well worth it!

I've got a Corima and I probably wouldn't buy it again.
Nothing wrong with it per se, but the drive pick up feels really choppy, as though the pawls or teeth in the freehub are too far apart.

Just to throw a few others into the mix, have you looked at citec or hed discs?
And what frames it going in?

The Zipp is a really nice wheel, can't comment on the Corima. On rim/tire width: From the Q&A on the Specialized site:

Q: Is there an opitimum rear tire width for the Shiv TT ?...I measured the width of curved section of seat tube, where the air would flow over the rear tire, @ 25.5 mm...? sound right? is it best to achieve a mounted tire width equal to or less than this, to keep the tire completerly covered by the frame, or does it not matter?

A: The tire width would actually depend on the wheel more than anything. The rear wheel is already blocked by the frame and if the rim is wider than the tire it will create drag. On most deep dish wheels we recommend our 26mm tires.


So, if you get a wider rimmed disc, you can run wider tires as Specialized recommends (and with well documented benefits), without any aerodynamic penalty. Running tires that are fast in all conditions is a major benefit, even more so on a tubular.

Stinger 9/Disc combo ;) or just do as Tony does and run Jet 6-9/Disc and turbo cottons.

Very nice wheel, enjoy.

By the way, your signature is quite confusing, being above the line and all. Just saying.
