    Durable speed.

    With a lightweight, tubeless-ready, open tubular casing, the Vittoria Corsa Speed G Plus Clincher Tire is billed as the world's fastest clincher tire and features revolutionary graphene technology for an unprecedented mix of low rolling resistance, durability, and all-weather grip. The Corsa Speed G Plus is the culmination of a collaboration between Vittoria and an external company, Directa Plus, to adapt a carbon compound known as grapheme for use in bike tires. The resulting compound is dubbed G plus, and Vittoria claims that its inclusion significantly reduces rolling resistance while increasing the durability Vittoria has long been known for.

    The inclusion of graphene is credited with enhancing traction, increasing durability, and reducing rolling resistance, and its impressive strength-to-weight ratio keeps the tire well-suited for racing by reducing rotational mass. According to Vittoria, the combination of G Plus and Isogrip compounds creates a tire surfacing that also rolls fast in both dry and wet conditions for confident cornering and handling no matter what nature comes up with when you're battling it out on rolling country roads.

    Vittoria claims that the elasticity and carbon construction of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire, but for even more reassurance it utilizes a corespun casing to increase the tire's lifespan. With multiple cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, core spun casings are significantly more supple than typical casings without adding unnecessary weight to the tire.

    Verdict still out on these...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was very excited to try these as my first tubeless experience. Got them on without any trouble. They are marketed as the lightest and fastest tubeless tires, which I don't disagree with. They are/were very fast and handled amazingly well. Over 3 weeks I put around 450 miles on them and got 3 punctures 1 on front tire and 2 on the rear, initially the sealent worked to stop leaks but then over the next week I kept getting leaks in the same spots, eventually leaving me with no choice but to put in a tube. The tires looked pretty banged up for having 450 miles. Finally on my last ride a child ran into the road and I ended up skidding for about 5-8' to avoid the kid and that was it for the tire. I burned straight through it. I don't make a habit of skidding around but was pretty surprised at the result none the less. Took it to my LBS and got it warrantied and will give it another chance.

    Flukey stuff can happen even with new equipment so not sure if it's bad luck or if it's due to soft, paper thin tires.
    To be continued...

    Sounds like these might be a real race day tire. I say "real" because a lot of times "race day" gets thrown around but the product can actually be used everyday without an issue. Sounds like these might be a low mileage, low puncture protection, race day tire. I was thinking about getting these to run with tubes for my "race day" 4.5s, but maybe I'll stick with the regular Corsa G+.

    These are indeed a true race day only tire; not only is the tread thinner than the standard Corsa G+, but it also forgoes any puncture protection, so the flats are not terribly surprising.

    You might try using the new Stan's Race sealant, as this has a better chance of permanently sealing the punctures. I have also had great luck using Hutchinson's sealant in the past, as it seems to have a more solid plug when it seals.
