Every parameter of this new tyre design is re-engineered for greater performance: in grip, rolling resistance, and any other metric that really counts, Corsa SR excels. In wet or dry, rough or smooth, on the climb or in the descent, it stretches the outer limits of what is possible.
The family of cotton tyres benefits from casing with 320 TPI (threads-per-inch) that’s one of a kind in terms of flexibility and lightness, from a tread that’s the result of millions of km in races around the world and from new, even better performance lightweight puncture protection, offering 40% better than ever before.
The full range of cotton tyres features the new ISOgrip compound for yet more grip and safety. Vittoria has a long tradition of success: its tubulars and treads have won the greatest number of races in history.
About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.

|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.
