    Corsa G Plus Tire

    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.

    • A superlative cycling race tire
    • 4C ISOtech construction blends multiple compounds
    • Graphene reinforces without compromising road feel
    • 320 TPI core spun casing is race-day supple
    • Classic style of gum walls

    They sound just as awesome as they look!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I’ve had these for over a year now, I use to run continentals which ok too but the Look of the Vittoria is what drew me in this gum wall... awesome. However after getting over the look of them and actually starting to put them to work.. the ride quality it unmatched! It’s comfortable and also quite responsive enough in races. When it’s just you and your bike on the open the road they sound... awesome.

    I haven’t had a puncher issue, none more than a typical tire and I’ve done well over a thousand miles.

    Only reason I’m not giving it 5stars is because after a year now it has a small part of the tire that looks like it’s lifting of the body.. but again that’s year later.



    Bottom line yes I would and have recommend this!

    They sound just as awesome as they look!

    Terrible durability

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Switched from Continentals. Waited 6 months to put these on, and 2 rides in they are falling apart. Switching back ASAP.

    Terrible durability

    Great experience so far-

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been running these on my single speed for the past 6 months, have logged around 800 miles and they've been great. A lot of those miles have been under load, as I have panniers and haul everything from groceries to golf clubs on trips to the driving range. I'm almost exclusively an urban cyclist (Wash, DC) and have had one flat (front, gnarly piece of glass that would've split a tank tread) only. Really smooth ride as well. Just bought 2 more as they're on sale.

    Don't waste your money

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have ridden Vittoria tires for years so I bought 6 of Corsa G's on sale. Terrible decision. ALL of the tires failed quickly so I can't really tell you what tread life is like. The tires are easily cut (fatal) by glass or debris and goatheads/thorns go right through the tire. If you have these, carry a tire boot - you will need it. My riding buddies started making fun of me given the frequency of failure.

    Too Many Flats

      3 flats in about 12 rides. Finally replaced them.
      I was running at 100 psi.

      Nice ride

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

      Had a pair of slicks on my Cervelo R2 when I purchased it so when it came time to replace I thought I'd try these. So far, smooth ride and great control on turns. Only have about 200 miles on them, and using latex tube so only running about 85 psi.

      these tires = TRASH = disposable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought 2. Used 1. 3 flats in 10 rides on 1 tire. Only 1 of the 3 flats (the 2nd one) had any likely cause. The first was super clean flat road & nobody saw anything & nobody else flatted. The third, similar.
      This tire has roughly zero puncture resistance. It even feels trashy thin.

      Disappointed

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had at least 4 pairs of these. On my wife's bike, I put on a brand new 23mm set and noticed that after 2-3 rides on smooth, new tarmac the tread was peeling away from the tube. Probably a defective tire but for the price and importance, I'm done with these.

      DO NOT BUY THESE TIRES!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Having raced and ridden road bikes over 20 years I have never had a clincher roll off a rim, until now. I ordered these tires on thinking thinking I got a good deal when I mounted them on my zipp 404s they hooked up easy. (Now I know too easy) anyway tires had less than 100 miles on them when they came with me to Gateway Cup this year. On the 3rd day of racing the tire literally blew off the rim going through a corner. Sounded bike a gun shot when it blew off (Was running 110 psi) Luckily I came away with just a little road rash however another guy in the field who went down with me ended up breaking his wrist. Although tires ride nicely, they also fit too loose on rims to be effective. Don't risk yourself or your fellow mates in the peloton with these tires.

      DO NOT BUY THESE TIRES!

      Solid.

        Ordered these in the gum color way, look great ,super soft and comfortable ride at 110PSI on a 25mm. Great tire!

        Fantastic Tires

          I just recently bought these tires so I can't comment on the durability but the ride is the best I've had.

          3 years and counting.

            I have these tires on 3 of my 4 road bikes and have to say they’re pretty good. I have 3 years and over 2k on 2 sets of them without punctures. That’s pretty god for a race type of tire. I also road these on the gravel roads of Eroica California without any issues. They climbed exceptionally well and were very comfortable. Others with tubular tires suffered many punctures.

             3 years and counting.

            Good Tire Great Price

              I've always ridden Continential GP 4000's Tires. However, I love the look of these so I decided to give them a try. Considering how much more the Specialized Turbo Cotton cost I thought this would be a great substitute for the look I want. These tires look great and run fast. Not sure about durability yet only time will tell. I will say that the color or the side wall seems to vary depending on where they come from.

              Fast tires

                These are very fast tires. They roll very smooth and have excellent grip while cornering. All the hype about them is true.

                Best riding tires on the market

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                My experience with these tires has been in line with pretty much all the other reviews here... No, you're not going to get the kind of mileage on these tires that you might get on a 4000 SII. No, you're not going to get puncture resistance on these like on a Gatorskin. That being said, they are phenomenal riding tires in terms of ride feel and rolling resistance. Generally speaking I only get maybe 1-2 flats a year anyway, so having the absolute best puncture resistance isn't a priority for me. And as for the faster wear... I personally believe that life is too short to be riding crappy tires just to get a little longer tire life. I'll happily pay the extra dollars in the long run and keep enjoying my rides as much as i can, starting with, my tires. Plus the tanwall tires look great on carbon wheels.

                BINGO. These tires, along with the Vittoria latex tubes, make for among the most comfortable, best riding combinations I have ever experienced. I log a couple of thousand miles per year. Usually have to replace the rear tire (230# rider), and 1-2 flats, usually 1 from road debris, and 1 from not seating the tube perfectly. But, I stock these tires because everybody in my house loves to ride on them.

                Supple.

                • Familiarity: I've used it several times

                "Supple" is thrown around way too much in the industry to describe tires. But it actually applies here. These tires feel like butter on the road—I've never ridden tires that are so—for lack of a better word—delicious. No notes on durability yet as I've only put a few dozen miles on them, but surely they'll wear out faster than 4000s or the like. They're just too damn smooth not to. Still, for racing or pure luxury rides, I can't think of a better clincher.

                I was skeptical

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                I was very skeptical with these tires for the roads I ride on which contain plenty of pot holes, chip and seal and your occasional gravel. These roll extremely well and "knock on wood" haven't punctured yet.

                Awesome Road feel

                • Familiarity: I've used it several times

                with Latex tube, the road feel is great. But the cons are you have to fill up the air pretty much everytime you go out for a ride. But the feeling is smooth as silk and soft as cheesecake.

                You are pretty right in your comments, but try to fill up the air for safety reasons and it will be better.

                Great Tire

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                The high TPI gives a supple ride and you can't go wrong with the skinwall color. Definitely provides a lot of grip
