Vittoria Claims Its New Corsa PRO Speed is the “Fastest Tire Ever Made”

Vittoria has rolled out its latest innovation in the Corsa cotton tires family, the Corsa PRO Speed. Designed specifically for time trials and triathlon, this cutting-edge tire promises to revolutionize the racing experience of pro riders and performance-oriented amateur riders.

“The Corsa PRO Speed tire is the result of extensive research and development conducted by our team of experts through three seasons of racing analysis. With a strong commitment to providing racers with the best possible products, Vittoria has designed a tire that maximizes speed, grip, and control in time trial and triathlon use,” says Vittoria. 

Featuring an advanced Graphene + Silica compound specifically designed to provide unparalleled efficiency while returning a very high level of grip on both dry and wet surfaces, Corsa Pro Speed ensures faster times and a smoother ride.

Vittoria collaborated with countless athletes and teams to achieve this milestone. Jonas Vingegaard’s domination of the Stage 16 Time Trial at the 2023 Tour de France highlighted a proven trend, supported by Wout van Aert’s Belgian National Time Trial victory and Jos van Emden’s Dutch National Time Trial win, all using the Corsa Pro Speed.

All enthusiasts can now look forward to excelling and reaching new personal bests. “The Corsa PRO Speed tire is a game-changer in the world of time trial racing,” said Vanessa ten Hoff, Vittoria’s Chief Marketing & Innovation Officer. “We understand the demands and challenges faced by athletes in this field, and we have created a tire that can truly enhance their performance. We are proud to launch this product and believe it will exceed our customers’ expectations.”

The fastest tire made even faster

By seamlessly tapering the tread into the sidewall, the Corsa Pro Speed construction combines the Graphene + Silica compound, ultra-supple cotton casing, and an updated tread pattern, all electrically cured to minimize rolling resistance. The results of internal testing show an improvement in rolling performance of 5%, with 2% savings in weight.

The circumferential groove distribution on the tread has been optimized compared to Corsa Speed, with a wider center slick area and closer grooves that provide suppleness and cornering edges. Corsa PRO Speed Corespun 320 TPI cotton casing – Vittoria’s finest – is extremely lightweight and guarantees ultimate suppleness, speed, and enhanced cornering grip.

“Whether you’re a professional or amateur racer, the Corsa PRO Speed is designed to enhance your riding experience and achieve your best performance in Time Trial and Triathlon use,” boasts the Italian brand. 

The new Vittoria Corsa PRO Speed will be available in 700×24, 700×26 and 700x28c models. All tires feature Vittoria’s Corespun 320 TPI construction and are TLR (tubeless ready), while only the 28c version is permitted for use with hookless rims.
