Corsa Control G2.0 Tire

If your rides consist of more than just smooth pavement, transitioning from bike paths to byways and rough country roads, you'll enjoy the tubeless comfort and enhanced puncture resistance of the Corsa Control G2.0 Tubeless Tire. Like the Corsa and the Corsa Speed, the Corsa Control is part of Vittoria's Competition Race lineup, using a supple 320 TPI Corespun casing that smooths out chattery chip-seal roads and makes it a good candidate for racing. The difference is the addition of textured shoulder tread for improved grip on slick or loose surfaces, as well as increased puncture resistance thanks to thicker tread.

Using their own exclusive manufacturing techniques and machinery, Vittoria is able to use 4 different compounds in the Corsa Control G2.0's tread, which are infused with graphene to fill voids in the rubber molecules. 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 the new Graphene 2.0 formulation significantly reduces rolling resistance, while at the same time increasing abrasion-resistance, making this tire both faster and more resilient than previous iterations of their graphene-infused tires, which are already proven at the Grand Tour level.

  • Tubeless-ready tire for rough roads and slick surfaces
  • Shoulder tread improves cornering grip on loose or slick roads
  • Graphene 2.0 reduces rolling resistance while increasing durability
  • 4 compounds in the tread optimize grip, rolling speed, & wear life
  • Thicker tread improves puncture protection over standard Corsa
  • Run it tubeless for a plush ride with increased flat resistance
  • 320 TPI core-spun cotton casing offers that near-tubular feel

Great traction, horrible quality

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I found these tires to be great when I first rode them. They excel in traction....but unfortunately, they have horrible sidewall quality. The rubber covering is easily worn away by almost anything that touches it, exposing the layup underneath, and then you'll start to see bulges and other problems develop. These lasted me about 3 months.

Are you running ENVE wheels? I believe there's a known issue with the hook (or lack of hook) messing up the sidewall on a bunch of tires, including some Vitorias

So far so good

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I have these on my '19 Giant Defy Advanced Pro 0 with the carbon SLR1 wheels. They were fairly easy to install by hand. The trick to getting them to seat for me is to use a spray bottle with some water and some dawn dish soap and spray around the bead area, then using a compressor, valve core left on but using a schrader adapter over the presta to fit my tire inflator. Can usually get the tire bead to seat the first time out and let the tire stay inflated for a bit. Then deflate, remove valve core and inject Orange Seal Endurance through the valve, reinstall valve core and reinflate using the compressor. On my wheels, which are 17mm internal width the 28mm tires measure 27mm. I am thinking of going with the 30mm tires the next time. While I only have about 300 miles over mostly chip seal and rough roads the ride has been great running the front around 65psi and the rear around 72psi. The Vittorias are so much more supple and feel less rolling resistance than the Giant Gavia AC1 tires that came stock, also much more road feel and compliance. Too early to tell how fast they will wear out, will post another update when the time comes.
