Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX tyre

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Pricey and fast to wear and puncture, but performance is exceptional in the meantime"

Tuesday, July 3, 2012 9.00am By

A genuinely legendary tyre among road racers, this latest Open Corsa is extremely quick, supple and confident – at a price. 

The handmade, Kevlar-reinforced polycotton 320TPI carcass is very generous for its given size and delivers a deliciously floated and super-fast ride on the road. 

It carries speed and holds a line in the rough particularly well, and the silica-enhanced SiO tread gives very low rolling resistance. It corners very confidently dry, dirty or wet too.

It’s not the best in terms of puncture protection and it wears fast – which makes the high price even more expensive in relative terms.
