Corsa Control G2.0 Tire
The Vittoria Corsa Control G2.0 Tire is made for riding and racing on greasy cobbles and rough roads, or in generally slick conditions. Compared to the standard Corsa, you'll see the addition of textured shoulder tread for improved grip on slippery surfaces, as well as increased tread thickness for better puncture resistance and durability. The 320 TPI Corespun-K casing ensures the tire feels supple though, smoothing out chattering chip-seal surfaces while remaining strong thanks to its Kevlar reinforcement.
Vittoria owns the only extruder in the world that allows for 4 compounds in a single tread, which it then fortifies with Graphene 2.0. This allows Vittoria to fine-tune the flex of the tread-base and tread-surface separately, placing the correct durometer Graphene 2.0 compound exactly where it's needed for maximum grip, rolling speed, cornering control, and wear life. Vittoria claims that Graphene 2.0 significantly reduces rolling resistance, while at the same time increasing abrasion-resistance, making this tire both faster and more resistant to flats than the previous generation of Corsa Control.

Wore out a set of Vittoria Corsa G’s and decided to try the Corsa Tech Tech info: Control G. Both sized at 28mm run at 70 psi. The Corsa’s were mounted on Zipp 202’s on a 2017 Pinarello K8-S. The Corsa Controls are mounted on a set of Enve 4.5’s mounted on a 2019 Pinarello K10. Im 6, 1’, 190. I live and ride in Phoenix, Arizona year round. The Corsas are a very supple tire. There is a noticeable difference between them and the Continental 5000’s (which I wore out and just replaced with the Corsa Controls) and the Conti 4000 II’s. The Conti 5000 is the fastest tire I’ve run but very flat prone out here. The Corsa’s are as fast but feel slower due to the supple nature of the ride. The compound and tread are prone to picking up tiny bits of debris but are also very grippy and take rough pavement very well. The key, as with any quality tire, is finding the right tire pressure. I’ve run them at 65 psi but found that felt a little mushy. At 75 they felt noticeably harsher by Vittoria standards. I have settled at 70 psi. The max rating on the 28mm tires is 87. They are noticeably taller and thinner when mounted on Enve 4.5 wheels than the Conti 5000’s and 4000 II’s. On my Pinarello K10 his translates into noticeably sharper handling. The Conti’s being neutral. I have had on flat which I attribute to road debris. Didn’t know anything happened until the next day. I found nothing embedded in the rubber. The Corsa Controls are a very deceptive tire. The tires are very grippy and corner extremely well at speed. The deception comes in that the tires feel nowhere near as fast as they actually are because the ride is so supple. Even better if you run 28s. My first set of Corsa G’s were worn out at 1800 miles with one flat (my fault for not paying attention). The current Corsa Controls have about 300 miles on them, one flat. These tire are outstanding all around performers, take a good beating on the rough stuff, and ride like nothing else. Depending on the pressure they can be a little flat prone but nowhere near as bad at the Conti 5000’s

Great for Speed/Not for Puncture Resist
I've had these for 7-months and love them except they're prone to punctures.
