Pirelli hits the mark with this P Zero Race tubeless tire.
They ride nicely, are fast, quite puncture resistant , and last a long time for such a high end race tire.
I don't race anymore, at least I don't enter races ;-) , but I still want to compete against my friends .
I have had most of the high end, high priced road tires and Pirelli's are every bit as good as any of them.
The tires inflate to Pirelli's specs which are on the website and I run them at a bit lower pressure than Pirelli recommends .
Mount easy and inflate with a hand pump on my Campy Bora WTO tubeless wheels.
I bought these to replace the stock tires my new bike came with after I had 4 punctures to my rear tire, and the front tire not holding air all that well. These were the easiest mounting tires I've ever had-- had been riding GP 5000s and GatorSkins before that on my older bike. Thus far, with a few hundred miles, these tires are comfortable on long rides and and have been abuse resistant on commutes on lousy city roads that have a fair amount of debris. I'd recommend them to anyone.
These are insanely good. I used to run Rene Herse Hurricane ridge and these are way better. The grip is so strong and the rolling resistance is minimal. These tires are sooo fast on both pavement and dirt. I ride in Northern California and these are a meaty enough tread for the gravel up here. I was worried 45s would be too big but they are perfect. If you are familiar with conti GP 5000s for road I would say these are the gravel equiv. I'll buy them again and again.
I had these tires put on my Domane the end of March this year. I came from Continental GP5000's and became jaded with them. In my experience the newer compound Conti's were terrible compared to the previous generation. I barely got 1200 miles on them before they really started to show wear. My riding times were a bit faster with the Pirelli's but the best thing is I currently have over 2400 miles on them and I could still probably go a few hundred more miles with them although I have another set going on shortly. I run 28's which is the sweet spot for me and the only issue I had was finding them in stock. Fortunately Bike Tires Direct was able to score enough to fill my recent order. These will be the tires I run from this point forward.
