Vittoria has launched its latest Corsa Pro tire, touting it as “the most advanced cotton road tire ever made”.
“Our Corsa Pro tubeless-ready clincher and tubular tires offer more speed, wet and cornering grip, puncture resistance and comfort than existing Corsa tires”, boasts Vittoria.
The new top-of-the-range tire comprises Vittoria’s latest graphene and silica compound, combined with a new electrical vulcanization process, which the Italian brand describes as the following:
“With the new Corsa Pro clinchers, our engineers succeeded in incorporating the rubber tire tread with the cotton casing by a new and more sustainable electrical vulcanization. Through this process, the rubber tread is completely embedded with the casing, creating a 100% seamless product. The benefits are related to improved flexibility, which grants even more suppleness and perfect adaptability to the terrain. In addition, laboratory tests have proven significant aerodynamics drag gains in fast-paced disciplines. Corsa Pro 320 TPI cotton casing – the finest available in the market – provides that suppleness, comfort and lightweight pro-riders are used to but now served in a stronger tire construction which boosts the tire speed.”
Additionally, the Corsa Pro features a high-density puncture-protection belt between the tread and the casing, along with a bead shield to provide reinforcement in that area, while both the Corsa Pro and the Corsa Pro Control are available in tubeless-ready options. Also, Corsa Pro is available in a tubular version as well.
The Vittoria Corsa Pro TLR tire is available in 700C only, in sizes of 24mm, 26mm, 28mm, 30mm and 32mm widths. The tubular version is available in 23mm, 25mm, 28mm and 30mm widths, while the Corsa Pro Control TLR comes in 700C and in 26mm, 28mm, 30mm, 32mm and 34mm widths.
Available with tan sidewalls only, the Vittoria Corsa Pro TLR sells for £89.99, while the tubular version and the Corsa Pro TLR fetch £119.99 and £89.99, respectively.
