    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.

    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.

            Have you seen the Enve warning about these tires? Unsafe at any speed? I just bought a pair from CompetitiveCyclist but now I'm afraid to mount them.
            https://roadbikeaction.com/beware-tire-wear-warning-for-all-enve-ses-wheel-models-2/

            I get what Enve is trying to do...be on the defensive for abusive riders. Sure, this tire isn't going to last you 5k training through winter conditions. Anyone who expects a performance tire to do that is setting themselves up for failure. On the other hand, I loaded this tire on my wheels in Spring 2017 and have put about 2500 miles of 95% good conditions on them (a little gravel, a little winter junk, maybe 150-200mi total) and am just now replacing it. Should you clean your bike and inspect your tires? Sure. Is it going to fail you 500 miles in? Probably not. Read Vittoria's lit. Don't bomb this tire down mountain gravel roads and inspect your bike regularly. You'll know when it's time to swap. FWIW I don't think I've ever even had a puncture on these, riding 25mm +/-85psi.

            Switched to these tires on both my training and racing wheels in Colorado after being 100% Continental tires for years prior. These tires may not last as long as the Conti’s, but in every other way have been a better tire. They corner better, are more comfortable on long rides, and subjectively these tires “feel” faster, FWIW. I have a pair on ENVE Classic 45 rims and SES 3.4’s and have never had a single issue going up, or down big mountain passes even where heavy braking is required.

            I've ridden these tires on ENVE 5.6s for about 9000 miles. The rear tire sidewall will rip and expose the inner tube after about 1200 miles on the rim, every time. I always see the sidewall bulge for about 50 miles before the tear, so its never caught me by complete surprise. The tires are fantastic; the problem is that ENVE decided to ignore the wheel industry build standards because they think they're better than everyone else, and this is the result. The upshot is I still ride Vittoria Corsa G+ on ENVEs and I'm not too worried about it, as long as I make a quick inspection of the rear wheel before each ride.

            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

            Dream ride, average durability.

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            After 3 sets of open corsa cx III's I went for the G+... It's very handsome tan sidewall. Really looks great on the bike exceeding my expectation in that respect. The tire is grooved, and only occasional gravel bits got stuck, but not really an issue. These tires roll like a dream with latex tubes, but after 500 miles, I got a pretty deep cut to the rear tire which I mended with duct tape and liquid rubber and rotated to the front. I was then able to stretch these out to about 2040 miles since 2/8/2018. Decided to retire them when I changed my chain and noticed yet another buldge/cut on the rear. Upgrading my review to a 4 star... they look cool for one, and they did outperform the Open Corsa III's by a longshot. Compared to Conti 4000's the size 25's are bit plumper on my DA C40 wheel-set. Would I buy the again?....you bet. I'll be running the G+ Control version in the winter and run these afterwards.

            What do you think about your Shimano C40s? Crosswinds? Thanks!

            How did these outperform the Open Corsa by a longshot? In what way? A bit troubled by the ENVE warning on these tires and have been using ONLY Open Corsa for years.

            Fast and comfortable tires

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The Corsa Open is now my go-to tire. Very supple for added comfort and they really make the handling of my bike more predictable. I mounted the 25c on both HED Ardennes Black and SL Plus rims with no issues. As a bonus, the tread wear has been better than expected. Not as good as Conti's 4000s but very respectable.

            LOVE my 28c's!!!!!!!

            Ride quality, grip is amazing. NO complaints. A bit hard to put on my C50 wheels but man......what a great set of clinchers. Best I've owned thus far.

            LOVE my 28c's!!!!!!!

            Hey how do you like those C50s? How are those on crosswinds? Second question, why 28mm and not 25 or 23? Thanks!

            A WORD OF WARNING...

              This tire is built like a tub without the tube liner sewn in. As a result, they have a flat shape which I found almost impossible to mount, with a tube, on Campagnolo Bora Ultra clincher wheels. Never had this problem before with other clinchers. If I had to change a flat on the road with these tires, it would be more hassle than they're worth. I gave them away. Not the best tire choice, in my opinion, if you roll on Campagnolo Bora's.

              I have used these on Bora Ultra clincher wheels for over a year and have no problem getting them on and off with just my hands.

              I also had no problems with mounting them on my Boras, or the other carbon clinchers I have tried.

              Me three. I mount these tires on my Bora Ulta 35's with no problem and without using carbon tire levers, just my hands. It's the easiest mount I've ever had.

              What? Huh? I have Campy Bora Ultra 50s and this tire is an easier install than Conti GP 4000s which run tight. No issues whatsoever.

              i'm a chick and i have no issues mounting them. Best tire ever.

              Gold standard

                If you want a fast tire that grips like no other, these are what you're looking for.

                Gold standard

                Are you using the 25s or the 28s on your Emonda?

                I'm using the 25s which measure an actual 27.5mm on 17mm internal rims, 28s would fit with no issues though. They have a bunch of clearance.

                Fast, smooth, look great

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                Have used these tires for the last few years as my summer/race tires (I use conti 4 seasons for the winter). As far as i'm concerned, these are the fastest clincher tires you can buy. Fast, smooth, easy to put on your wheels (I have Mavic SYS SLR), and look awesome with the tan sidewall. Noticeably faster than other tires I've used.

                Vittoria Corsa G+ Clincher

                • Familiarity: I've used it several times

                I am or have been a Continental S4000 person. I recently tried the Vittoria G+ Corsa Clincher and it is a game changer. The tires feel great on the road. I never rode tubular but my guess bet is the G+ simulates that feel on a clincher. The biggest attribute to this tire is the confidence I feel descending. I am not sure if it is psychological but I feel and hear the tires gripping as I go into the turns. This gives me the confidence in my local Road Races.
                The only thing that is still in question is the wear and durability. I have not owned the tires long enough for that comment. I will follow-up. that is what I do like about the Conti's S4000.

                How's it working out? I've already trashed my rear tire in less than a month, 500 miles. Thinking about Conti S4000....

                The best yet...

                  My last set of tires were Vittoria Open Pave EVO CG III in 27mm and I gave a glowing review of them. However, the Corsa G+ in 28mm is my new favorite.

                  I can't emphasize what a difference there is in tire volume for only a millimeter more. And the ride is to die for. On top of that, the classic gummy sidewall is beyond good looking.

                  So far I have several hundred miles on them and they still look brand new. I have them mounted on some Enve 4.5 rims and will probably order a pair in 25mm for them (Enve claims the rim is optimized for use with 25mm tires).

                  I couldn't be happier with the tires.

                  new favorite

                  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                  I can't get over the highly communicative feel and classic look of these tires. Being a somewhat heavier rider, I'm generally pretty prone to flats no matter the tire, but I've had really good luck with these so far.

                  My favorite all-around tire used to be the venerable Conti GP 4000S II, but that is not longer the case. The high thread count and corresponding supple feel, stylish sidewalls, and increased durability from the graphene material make this my new go-to tire.

                  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.

                  The flats problem may be a batch issue. I had one pair that seemed to get a flat every second ride, but I have worn out the tread on 5 other pairs without a single flat on any of them.
