Pirelli launches Cinturato Gravel and Cross tyres with terrain-specific tread patterns

Automotive brand expands tyre range further with tubeless tyres for gravel and cyclocross riders

Pirelli Cinturato Gravel tyres

Pirelli has expanded its range with the launch of a new line-up of Cinturato gravel and cyclo-ross tyres. Both variants are available in Hard Terrain and Mixed Terrain versions with tread patterns to match.

The storied automotive brand first entered the bicycle market in 2017 with its PZero range and subsequently launched the original Cinturato, a tubeless, high-volume road tyre. That was then followed earlier this year by the Scorpion, Pirelli’s first mountain bike tyre.

Pirelli says the expanded Cinturato range takes the best bits from its existing tyres: the terrain-specific tread philosophy of the Scorpion and the reliability of Cinturato road tyre.

The Cinturato Cross and Gravel use a new compound dubbed SpeedGRIP, designed to perform in both wet and dry conditions, according to Pirelli, while apparently keeping rolling resistance ‘very close’ to the Cinturato road tyre.

SpeedGRIP is an evolution of the SmartGRIP compound used for the Scorpion mountain bike tyre and, according to Pirelli, shares the same level of puncture resistance. Both the Cinturato Cross and Gravel tyres have a 127 TPI nylon casing with bead-to-bead protection and can be run tubeless.

The Cinturato Cross is only available as a 33mm tyre (the maximum width permitted in a UCI cyclocross race). The Cross has a more aggressive tread pattern than the Gravel.

The Cinturato Gravel, meanwhile, comes in 35mm, 40mm and 45mm sizes for 700c wheels, and 45mm and 50mm widths for 650b wheels. All Cinturato Gravel tyres are available in black or with tan sidewalls.
