PirelliPZero Road Tire(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
I have ridden alot of tires over the years, the PZero is an incredible tire. Its a training tire that doesn't perform or feel like one. Very smooth over rough pavement, no cuts over the past few months and grip for days. Well worth the price. In my opinion it out performs the Gatorskin and Rubino Pro.
Great ride feel, great handling tire. Most comfortable tire I've ever ridden (vs. Vredestein, Conti 4000, 5000 and Gatorskins). On sale, they're a great deal. At full retail (> $60, not so much).
I switched from Conti GP 5000's to these (and then to the 4S for the California "winter"). I really like the way they ride, but I am often disappointed at the durability of this tire. Granted, at 200lbs, I put a lot of weight on this tire and a decent amount of power down. But, they seem to get nicked and cut far more often than Conti 5000s.
If you're looking for great feel, these tires are the best. If you're looking for something that will last a long time on less than perfect (no debris, smooth surface) roads, these are not the tires for you.
Got rid of my Conti tires b/c I can change these without any tools! What a pleasant experience! Last set lasted almost 5k miles. I keep about 90 psi and they're pretty comfortable and about average for flats-our roads have lots of stickers, micro-thorns and debris. This is my second set and plan to keep using PZero's.
I made the move to the Pirelli PZero from Conti 5000's. The Conti's were a really bad match for the Roval wheelset that came with my new Aethos (love that bike by the way). Changing a flat with the Conti's was a 12 - 14 minute process because it was so difficult to get the bead of the tire over the rim to pull out the flat tube. It is still tricky with the Pirelli's, but overall a much easier fit and fixing a flat is back to a 6 - 8 minutes process. In terms of ride, the Pirelli's are really comfortable and with about 400 miles on them so far they seem to have about the same puncture protection as the Conti's (just one flat but it was a large piece of glass).
seems to roll up faster and longer, so far i'm very happy but at this point i have less then a thousand miles on them. I got them to replace conti 5000 that seem to wear pretty quick in the city hopefully i'll get a few more miles out of the Pirellis
Easy mounting tire and good road feel. I've been using them on D/Ace wheels at ~90psi and have good grip in the wet (NorCal winter) & dry. Comfortable riding, maybe not as supple as the Pirelli Velo 4S, but close enough and more than fine for training tires. Picked up a few small rock/glass cuts (normal) but no flats, so nothing to note there as of yet. Wear seems reasonable. Good value for the $, IMO. Happy riding!
Bought a pair of the PZeros to try out for the summer riding season, and I can say that theyï¿½re now a new favorite tires. There was an immediate and noticeable difference in ride quality and comfort from the very first ride on them.
