As someone who rides approximately 120 miles a week and lives in the mountains, I depend on my tires for rapid descents in and around Park City. In that regard, the Pirelli P-Zero Race tires have become a mainstay. While they may not be as supple as the Schwalbe Pro One's, they are more puncture resistant and hold well on wet pavement. I weigh 175 and use a PSI of 75 in the rear and 70 up front, which seems to make our often harsh roads a bit more bearable. Bike: Colnago V3Rs, Tires: 28cm P-Zero
Race TLR, tubeless.
I initially purchased size 28c, but later opted for an exchange to size 30c based on my research indicating that it would provide a more comfortable ride. The new tires have exceeded my expectations - the impact is reduced and the rolling resistance is significantly improved. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase and would like to express my gratitude to your team for assisting me with the exchange process and providing valuable information about these tires.
I have been using these tires for almost 2 years now with no major issues. When I made the move to tubeless I switched to these tires from the schwalbe one over to the Pirelliï¿½s. I have not been disappointed. I love these tires because they seem to just glide across the pavement. There fast and very stable. I never worry about traction or control with these tires. Puncture protection is top notch. Iï¿½ve had 0 punctures in the 2 years that Iï¿½ve been running these tires. They are pricy but Iï¿½ll continue to stock up when they go on sale.
I run road tubeless with great luck for several years now. I carry these for for when the tire won't seal after a larger injury and twice now these have got me home no problem. They are much easier to stuff into a tubeless tire than the beefier butyl tubes and in certain wheels it's downright impossible. Patching them on the go is not ideal as it takes 30 min for the special patches to cure and I've read that they are tricky to patch, but I haven't tried myself. Anyway they are light, roll nicely and are occasionally on sale.
