Vittoria’s embrace of graphene and tubeless technology has produced one of the fastest-feeling tyres available right now, with the second-generation Corsa providing low-rolling resistance and easy tubeless setup.

The graphene-infused tread pattern with four compounds delivers a wonderful sense of uninhibited speed. The tyres clearly yield low rolling resistance even on the coarsest road surfaces, and grip is phenomenal in the dry, though marginally less tactile in the pouring rain.

They have a wide usable inflation range and work wonderfully at 60psi, with impressive speed allied to silky-smooth comfort and steadfast cornering traction.

Comfort on longer, slower rides is good, but their high wear rate means they’re best saved for summer rides rather than being a fit-and-forget option.

These tyres do have a puncture belt and burlier construction than their tubed counterparts, but the tread does mark and cut more easily than the other tyres I had on test.

One of the claimed benefits of graphene is increased durability, but I didn’t find the wear rate or puncture resistance to be noticeably improved over the previous version or over the other tyres.

The Corsas are among the easiest tyres to fit and inflate that I tested, and measure up true to size. For fast riding, the low weight and low rolling resistance are appealing factors. The high price is a downside and while the shorter lifespan and race-focus dent their broader appeal, if you’re happy to regularly replace your tyres, then look no further.

How we tested

We put 12 tubed and tubeless clincher 28mm road tyres head-to-head to see which you should spend your money on.

28mm is considered the sweet-spot width for rolling speed, comfort and weight, with wider tyres offering lower rolling resistance and more traction. Even though they’re heavier and less aero than 23mm tyres, for example, the positives can outweigh the negatives, especially over long-distance cyclists.

Tyres are an easy upgrade, too, and add more comfort to your ride with a greater volume of air between you and rough roads.
