Let's face it, the tire on your bike makes the primal decision for the rest of the system, both where the airflow is going to go and your connection with the road. When Zipp introduced their Tangente line of tyres in 2007 they did it with a focus on leading edge airflow properties and how they interfaced with their rims.
Zipp has taken everything that they learned from Firecrest rim shapes and updated their tire technology to not only maximise airflow, but also optimise rolling resistance.
