    Believe the hype.

    Anyone with a passing interest in cycling tech has probably been exposed to the hype surrounding Vittoria's new quadruple compound design, the heart of which is a thin, nearly transparent layer of carbon called graphene. The claims made for this material have been impressive, but we weren't sure what to think until we got our hands on Vittoria's Corsa G Plus Clincher Tires. Vittoria blends four rubber compounds with the inclusion of graphene for the Corsa G, and, without throwing any hyperbole around, we'd say the difference is very noticeable.

    The tires' 4C ISOtech construction, which allows for separate base and surface compounds to be strategically placed throughout the tire, made cornering feel smooth and consistent while the fast-rolling center reduces the atrophy of watts on straightaways. Vittoria claims that the elasticity and carbon construction of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire, but for even more reassurance, it adds KEVLAR to further reinforce the core spun K casing. With multiple cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, core spun casings are significantly stronger than typical casings, and they don't add additional weight to the tire.

    The Corsa G's luxurious 320 TPI is a final element that sets it apart from other tires. TPI measures the number of threads per inch in a tire's casing, with higher counts equating to a lighter tire with a suppler ride. Whether it's due to the high TPI, the claimed benefits of graphene, or a combination of both, we can attest to the Corsa G's supple road feel and ability to smooth chattering chip seal surfaces. In the clincher version, each Corsa G Plus will add between 235g and 265g to your frame, depending on size, and the tires' classic, gum-wall aesthetic makes them an eye-catching addition to your frame.

    Fast and Durable.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Without a doubt, these are the best tires yet. I just added up my total mileage since Feb 11 and I have clocked 1407 miles without a flat. They look almost new with some cuts here and there. I use latex tubes so not sure if that has helped avoid flats.

    fast - until you flat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I swerve out of the way every time there's a patch of debris on the side of the road, in an intersection, or on a sidewalk because these tires do NOT like anything sharp. I've run through at least a dozen tubes with these tires in less than a season. sure, they look great on my bike. so great I'm tempted to buy another set. considering price v. performance: I'd rather ride more and worry less. especially in the mountains.

    Great feel & fast Durability not so good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These tires in the 25's on Zipp rims are great. I really like these because they are fast and feel very smooth. I put the first pair on and they lasted about 2500 mi. I started getting flats on every ride. The tire does get cut easily, small 2-3 mm cuts from glass, but never really had a flat issue until the 2500 mile mark. I put on a new pair of Conti GP 4000s II. There is a difference will probably try them again, but they do not last as long as Conti's.

    Fast Tires

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great tires all around. Super fast, good rolling tires, if you can fit them spring for the 25's as the weight penalty between 23-25 is minimal, but ride quality on the 25's is amazing. Awesome all-around high performing tire. Soft, supple, and fast.

    Another great Vittoria Tire!

      I've been using the Vittoria Open Corsa CX since 2011. They are truly great riding tires. These new Corsa G+ feel just as great. I run 23mm on Zipp 30s and the Vittoria latex tubes. I really don't know why so many folks are complaining about flats. These shoot rocks out of the way like bullets and flats have never been an issue with me. I'm a big guy and I've run the rear as high as 135psi. Dependable, strong, and fast. I don't use any other tire. They are the best i've used.

      Another great Vittoria Tire!

      Sold on the 25mm but..

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      So 1st thing 1st.. I got a flat 2.23 miles on my first ride on these. The piece of glass looked like something I've ridden over a million times with my GP4000. In defense of the tire I will point out the following:
      It happened on century ride and I saw two other riders with flats before me early that morning. So I wasn't alone.
      It happened with an old butyl tube. I blew up one of the latex tubes on install the night before. The latex tube/Corsa combo had no issues.
      The rest of the 98 miles with the Corsa/new tube was great, no issues.

      I'm ridden too long to fall for a fad or be talked into believing something, but I'm here to tell you, these 25mm Corsa's are awesome. Fast & comfortable, I couldn't believe it, the hype is real. I'm going to change out all my road bikes to 25mm Corsas, because if I don't I won't want to ride those bikes, it makes that much of a difference. Take a chance, I did and I'm glad I did.

      I will look out for durability issues but I'm willing to trade less mileage for a better ride. My Contis will last forever but ride like a semi truck. Maybe a tire liner will help but might defeat the purpose, so I'll just ride like this and take my chances, it's worth the ride quality.

      Open Pave Replacement?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      For context, 80% of the time I'm riding cotton tires, be they the sadly discontinued and extreeeeeemely hard to get on the rim Vittoira Open Corsa SC/CX, Speshy Turbo or my favorite Veloflex Master (25mm only). When this new tire was released from our beloved Vittoria couldn't wait to jump on them. A few other early-adopter homies acquired them the day they were released and suffered some first-batch woes. A few flats, but nothing catastrophic. Since then they've seemed to stand up to their claims of low rolling resistance and durability.

      After spending some time with the inGamba crew last month and hearing their mechanics swear by them for a few minutes I decided I needed to drop in. My personal first pair were stretched around some HED Belgiums last week and thus far I have a few hundred winter miles on them over sanded and salted roads. Ride quality is bananas (even at 28°f outside temp across frozen asphalt) and grip is supes nice. My report on puncture resistance will be submitted after i've spent more time on them. For now, five stars.

      Open Pave Replacement?

      Almost totally tubular

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I got sold on the ride of tubular tires over 25 years ago, when I first started riding "seriously" ... there's something about the process of gluing up a set of tires that calms me. It's probably the fumes from the glue frying my brain cells, but whatever.

      The fact remains that nothing rides quite like a tubular, and the downsides (expense, time to glue properly) are far outweighed by the upsides (ride quality, lighter wheel/tire combinations, handling).

      I've always had the best luck with Vittoria tubulars from their low-end Rally training tubies to their high-end Corsa CX/SL offerings.

      So now, on those occasions when I ride clincher tires, I'm riding Vittoria Open Corsas (the same casing & tread as the tubulars, but in a clincher format). They've come a long way, and the ride is approaching that of tubulars, but I tend to only use them for training. For races or other important events, I'll still put out the tubulars for the ultimate performance.

      Only 4-stars instead of 5-stars like the tubies, but that's only because I can't give them 4.5 stars.

      great tires great price

        cant believe how fast cc got my tires to me..i even received a call before and after just to make sure I am happy. keep up the good work competitive cyclist. cant wait to try the tires out got the black on grey. free latex tubes were a plus.

        Long term

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Straight away I noticed the bike felt very fast, responsive, handled even better in corners, and seemed to dance up the short steep climbs. The 25mm width offered a very comfortable ride whilst on the pot hole infested streets and highways where I live.

        However there were some draw backs. Despite being almost puncture proof over the past year, they have taken a beating. Numerous cuts, and small holes crater the tire where small rocks and glass have stuck in.

        Bottom line:
        The durability just isn't there. But if you are looking for a tire to add some excitement to your commute, or a race day tire without going tubular, then these are an excellent choice.

        Over 6K miles and no flats - Fast

          I have 6K miles on the front and have replaced the back once. I locked up my breaks and the skid wore the first back tire down. Running my tires at 120 PSI and not using latex tubes. Very pleased with these tires and will be buying another set soon. I am wondering if Latex tubes are the culprit for some of the bad reviews because of flats? Seems like I read certain carbon wheels cause latex tubes to get very hot and blow? Interested what other know...

          Ride Quality over Durability

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          These tires definitely live up to the claims regarding ride quality. They provide an extra level of smoothness on uneven terrain and boost your confidence in corners. In my opinion they out perform the GP4000s in this area. However, I know other reviews have not been so kind on their durability and the increasing likelihood of flats. Flats are so variable to terrain, weather, tire pressure, it's hard to gauge. But, after only 1100 miles or so on these tires, the skinwall version (as much as they look cool) show too much abrasion and ultimately for me, blew out the sidewall. Flats are one thing, blowing out a sidewall is not acceptable for these high dollar tires. I'll give them another try down the road if they beef up the side but for now, back to the GP4000.

          Updated and Upgraded

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Having been a long time Vittoria Servizio Corsa rider I was extremely pleased to hear that the new Corsa G Plus was updating and replacing the top tier Vittoria tire that has been seen on neutral service bikes in the Giro.
          Graphene, the gee whiz new wonder material, has added a new dimension of durability to the compound while still maintaining the expected Vittoria grip and comfort. This allows also a lighter tire since Graphene adds significant additional wear and puncture protection for a race level open tubular. The new tread is now linear, which is said to lower rolling resistance and increase speed.
          This new tread and compound is coupled with uber high 320 TPI cotton casing which only adds to the overall sweet ride, grip and overrall comfortable ride. Coupled with a latex tube and you have a the closest ride to a tubular you can get to.
          My personal experience has been with 1500 km on varied mountainous terrain including stretches of dirt road, mountain descents and races/group rides. No flats, no issues with a premium ride in all conditions all the time with Vittoria latex tubes.

          Thanks for adding Anthracite Sidewall

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Vittoria made me really happy by adding an Anthracite sidewall version of this tire. I'm really wondering whether those folks having flat problems with this tire are instead using the "Speed" version of the same tire that doesn't have the flat protection.

          Thanks for adding Anthracite Sidewall

          Smooth Tire- but is it worth it?

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          These tires are admittedly a smooth ride. Is the smooth ride worth it, if you spend more time on the side of the road versus actually riding? I have had nothing but puncture after puncture with these. And I'm not talking about running over a big piece of glass or a nail, or big thorn. I'm talking small little pieces of debris that wouldn't have even effected my ride if I were on GP4000sII's. Great for a racing clincher-but for training let me spare you the hassle and pick up some Contis.

          Smooth Tire- but is it worth it?

          My friend runs these tubless and runs them on glass filled, potholed roads with no issues. He tracked down the Victoria rep who told him they are actually tubeless ready. He sealed the cotton casing with tent seal on the inside for good measure on one of his sets and not with the other. The result was the same. He has had no issues with sepage or seating. Easy to mount and didn't need a compressor. Maybe give that a try?

          High quality + wider = new ride

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Riding on the junky roads of southwest Oklahoma is a surprising proving ground. Realistic scenarios that the majority of riders will find themselves is tough to come by, but the conditions can be so harsh as to really test what a tire can handle. The shoulders of larger roads are inordinately trashy (small rocks, glass, assorted road flotsam) and the smaller side roads are all in various states of disrepair. Transitions from municipalities to county generally always cause a change in paving/asphalt type. The wind is omnipresent (it is Oklahoma) so even small changes in the bike yield easy to recognize symptoms.

          For data purposes, I ride a Specialized Roubaix with HED Belgium Plus (25mm) rim. Previous tires were Vittoria Rubino G+ 25mm run at 90PSI up front and 100PSI rear installed with Vittoria Ultralite 25/28 tubes.

          I ordered the Corsa G+ in 28mm with gum walls and decided to go with Vittoria's latex tubes based in previous reviews. Installation was a real pain initially. Basically I was trying to change it like every other tire I've ever changed. Dumb. I watched a YouTube video where a British guy solved my issues (press the tire into the rim dummy, no levers needed!). I finished the install with 75PSI front and 90PSI rear and stuck the beast back onto its rack.

          Overnight I lost 10pounds per tire. Not so bad. I pumped them back up to 75/90 and went to the meeting spot for the Saturday group. Holy smokes. Nirvana. The difference between a 120 TPI 25mm tire with butyl tubes and a 320TPI 28mm tire with latex tubes was stark, to say the least. The bike just didn't want to slow down when I freewheeled. It just went and went. Bumps that normally caused a noticeable chatter were now only minor bumps. Cornering was never bad on the Rubinos, but now it was like being on rails. Confidence was high, I repeat, confidence was high.

          Some minor nitpicks after the first couple days. 1) gum walls on a 28mm aren't aesthetically pleasing against the wide alloy braking strip. My tire/rim combo goes black, gum, alloy, black. It's a weird look. And it prompted mucho poop talking from the grupetto. The term "beach cruiser" was used more than once 2) it not exactly aerodynamic looking, though the numbers don't really back that up. This isn't an issue with this tire specifically, just 28mm tires in general. 3) clearance could be an issue for some. Again, no fault of this tire specifically.

          Durability will be judged at a later date. Thus far, no cuts after some pretty gnarly highway trash yesterday.

          In the end, it was a great ride. It's smooth, cornering is much better, and the connected feeling to the road was noticeable. I don't have any hard math to back up that wider is better after 25mm. Here's what I do know. I don't think you can switch to wider tires all willy-nilly. In fact, I think the difference felt overall from one tire to the next was as much to do with the tire's makeup as the size change alone. It felt great to me, and I felt faster overall. My pedaling was definitely smoother. Other than that it's hard to say. I will say this, it's hard to hear the term "beach cruiser" when it's coming from 100yds behind you.

          Great Tire

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've always been a fan of Vittoria tires. So, when I decided to upgrade my wheelset, my first thought was the Open Corsa. However, it seemed the G+ was the latest innovation so I took a chance. Man, these tires continue to amaze me. I've been riding them since March and have had no problems -- I usually average around 80 miles a week during the Summer. They really smooth out the road and with their raised-ridge tread they definitely reduce rolling resistance as well. I also really like the gumwall effect too; it looks really good with dark carbon wheels.

          Unanswered Question

          Are the anthracite sidewalls cotton sidewalls dyed black or are they a rubber sidewall? Also wondering if the feel of the tire is the same for both versions?

          Has anyone attempted to fit the 28mm version of these to a Enve 2.0 fork? I know the 28mm version of the GP4000SII does not come close to fitting. The older VITTORIA OPEN PAVE EVO CG III in a 27mm fits with plenty of room, so I'm thinking if they are sized the same as those, they should fit fine.

          Will the 28s fit a Giant Propel

          Do you know if the 28mm will fit under an Enve road fork. I'm using A23 rims (17mm internal)

          Those are the specs, true. But it often depends on how accurate the tire sizing is- for instance an 28 mm Continental GP4000 absolutely won't fit with Stans Alpha 340 rims (won't even go in the dropouts) and rubs enough to not turn with A23 rims. Has anyone actually tried it?
