Vittoria Corsa Control Road Tire G2.0 is a fast tire perfect for wet-weather applications. The grip is excellent in corners, and the supple casing gives a really nice ride feel. If you opt for the tubeless version (TLR) the setup was easy, and the tires performed well on fast rides. A perfect mix-weather, competitive tire.
If you are a competitive cyclist and want to be able to go fast, but also love the excitement of adventure, then the Vittoria Corsa Control Road Tire is for you. This tire has been proven in pro-tour events, has won multiple tours and championships over the past decade, and has been used by some of the biggest cycling superstars in recent memory.
One of the best and fastest road bicycle tires in the industry with a proven track record in the pro-tour, the Vittoria Corsa Control Road Bicycle Tubeless tire is their flagship competitive road tire.
The Italian road cycling tire and parts manufacturer Vittoria has been an institution in the world of cycling. From the early days of wearing tubular tires across your back to the latest edition of the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta a España. With possibly the most and most famous wins and riders crossing the finish lines and jumping on the podium using Vittoria tires.
The Vittoria Corsa Control Road Cycling Tire provides a subtle but effective level of protection against small debris found on most urban roads, by having a Corespun-K casing with 320 TPI and 4k graphene compound to the tire’s construction. The result is a subtle but stable tire that can handle slippery and rough surfaces with ease and without losing rolling resistance. A favorite for professionals riding in poor weather or in poor roads like the Pyrenees or the Flanders / Paris-Roubaix courses. The Regular Vittoria Corsas might be a bit lighter and faster but the robust feel of the Corsa Control version makes it a better overall tire.
Road tires come in an array of sizes and configurations starting with 700×23 which would be hard to find these days, as the industry pushes for more air volume in tire/rim design, that measurement is becoming extinct in for most brands. The most popular size to this day would be the 700×28, although Vittoria offers the 700×25 as well as a bigger volume option 700×30.
The tubeless version of the tire is not the lightest at 323gr but with a bit more robustness and puncture protection, it is a great trade-off. The plush ride, confidence in the rain, and robust compound make the Vittoria Corsa Control Road Tire G2.0 easy to recommend.
A key technology differentiator for and many other Vittoria bicycle tires is the Graphene (G2.0) compound.
Graphene 2.0 (G 2.0) takes the original Graphene compound foundation that Vittoria built, and functionalizes the advancements in performance, for each specific application. In other words, where the first generation of graphene compounds raised the bar evenly, Graphene 2.0 pin-points each performance metric and increases it disproportionally to the rest. Vittoria is now able to apply Graphene in such a way that it can achieve a performance boost specifically for speed, wet grip, durability, and puncture resistance of MTB and road bike tires.
