About Road Race Tubular Tyres
These tubular tyres are designed for tubular rims, these are glued on using tubular cement or tubular tape. They are the preferred choice for serious riders and professionals when all that matters is performance. A tubular is a sealed unit with an inner tube sewn into the tyres casing, this means the tubular is perfectly round in profile and offers a better feel when cornering. Vittoria have introduced open tubulars which are the same design as their tubular tyres but with a bead for use on a clincher rim, these will offer the closest feel of a tubular but the ease of repair associated with a clincher. Sizing is subtly different to clincher wheels and can be a bit confusing as most manufacturers still quote the old imperial sizes. However there are only 2 real sizes: 26" is the same as 650c, then 27", 28" and 700c are all the same size. We spotted this useful article on Bike Radar which explains briefly the benefits and how to fit tubular tyres.
|Recommended Vittoria Tyre Pressure|
For normal road surface and dry conditions. Note rim specifications regarding max tire pressures allowed. For wet or rough roads, decrease by 0.5 bar (7.5 psi). For tubular tyres, increase by 0.5 bar (7.5 psi).
Ideal tyre pressure is subject to many variables such as road surface, weather conditions, bike materials and setup, rider’s weight and lastly, riding style. The best way to fine tune ideal tyre pressures is field testing a variety of different pressures. One method is to use a short criterium style circuit, preferrable with a variety of corners.
Start with the suggested pressure and ride a lap. Each following lap, lower the pressure by 5psi until you feel the tyres start to “wallow” or move a bit. This is your lowest pressure point. Return to the above table pressures and raise 5psi each lap until the tyres start to bounce and skip/move across the surface. This is your max pressure. Decrease by 5 psi from here until you feel you have the best pressure for the conditions.
Keep a tyre pressure log, including road surface, techinicality of the course, weather conditions, tyre type, brand, and TPI. Finally, the bike you used and your weight on that day. Over time, this log will become a valuable tool for referencing tyre pressures and road conditions in order to optimize your performance when on race day.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
It is easiest to remove the inner valve core using the little plastic tool Vittoria used to supply with red metal stems, but not absolutely necessary. A needle nose pliers ought to work, too.
The "CX III" stem assembly measures 35mm long, so if you want to equal the old red 80mm stem, will need a 45mm extensions.
The tire has a permanently installed 42mm stem and the core does not appear removeable either. So an extender appears necessary -- which I don't like.
The previous model year "EVO Corsa CX" tubular had the removeable red aluminum stems, I am guessing Vittoria eliminated that to reduce costs :-(
As an aside you should check out some of the latest theories on tire width versus speed/power efficiency. In a nutshell 21c will have lower rolling resistance than 23c but as an aero package when on the rim 23c or even 25c is more aero efficient (i.e. less drag), meaning less power used over a given distance.
