I guess I messed up?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These tires were VERY delicate, which wasn't what I was looking for. I have went tubeless with other tires before with no major issues, but after a week of riding on normal roads (which I don't think these are really made for) I tore a huge hole in the rear spraying slime everywhere and a slow leak in the front. Put a tube in the front but after a month it had flatted 3 times so neither tire lasted more than a month.
All that said, MAYBE they're super fast and would be excellent on a set of race day wheels. If that's your intended use then go for it, I've ridden for a long time and the past few years on Vittoria Corsa G+ tires without issue, I've never seen tires this delicate before.
Yes, the Corsa Speed is a race tire. It weighs 205 grams. Smack on Vittoria's website it's listed as a "competition race" tire. This tire is specifically aimed at time trials....where race official typically sweep the road for debris. https://www.vittoria.com/us/corsa-speed-competition-race.html?___store=us_en&___from_store=us_en
