Performance rubber comes back to bikes

This video was produced in association with Pirelli.

Pirelli has a storied history in the realm of motorsports, but it also used to make tyres for bicycles. This year the company has come full circle with the launch of a new three model range of road bike tyres. 

Named after the brand's flagship performance car tyres, the new P-Zeros are aimed at the very top of the road market.
