To the rejoice of time trialists and triathletes alike, Pirelli has introduced its latest tire called the P ZERO Race TT, taking over from the Italian brand’s previous P ZERO Velo TT by focussing on less weight and a revised tread pattern that’s aimed at beating the clock.
“The P ZERO Race TT is the smoothest and lightest clincher tire of the entire P ZERO Race range, designed to meet the requirements of the World Tour teams that’s combined with our ultra-light SmarTUBE inner tubes. Indeed, teams such as the US Trek-Segafredo or the French AG2R have already chosen P ZERO Race TT for some 2022 stages of the Vuelta or the Tour de France,” boasts Pirelli.
The tread of the new P ZERO Race TT is based on Pirelli’s SmartEVO compound, which is designed to offer very low rolling resistance, optimal control at high speeds and an excellent grip.
Additionally, unlike its predecessor, P ZERO Race TT’s tread is not a slick, rather it more closely follows the pattern of the P ZERO Race, thereby enhancing grip and cornering control. Also, Pirelli claims the new tire is 5% lighter and features 15% lower rolling resistance thanks to its 120 TPI nylon LITE casing.
P ZERO Race TT is available in the sizes 700×26 and 700×28, with pricing for the US market to be announced.
