The Vittoria Corsa N.EXT G2.0 TLR is their go-to road tire for racing-inspired performance with ultimate durability. The newest tubeless addition to the Corsa line, the Corsa N.EXT is Vittoria's go-to road tire for enthusiast competition, filling the gap between the Pro-level Corsas and training-level Rubinos.
Vittoria engineers focused this tire on the requirements of enthusiast cyclists who clock up the miles on long and demanding weekly rides. The Corsa N.EXT is for the competitive rider who wants speed but without compromising on durability and puncture resistance.
The Corsa N.EXT TLR combines Vittoria's durable nylon casing with a new Graphene + Silica compound for higher rolling efficiency, grip, and mileage with all the benefits of going tubeless.
We were lucky enough to get a pair of these to test out before the launch. To read all of the juicy details about our staffer's hands-on experience with them check out our full review!

I use these tires on Zipp 303S Rims for all road riding and very light gravel. I mount them without using a lever but it takes patience. I also have to use an air accumulator tank to get them to seat. The first set of tires only lasted 1,000 miles even though the tread indicators were still visible. I swapped them out because of cuts on the front tire and tread damage to the back tire even though they never went flat during a ride. Road and bike path conditions where I ride are horrible and encounters with broken glass, tree debris and cracked and bumpy pavement are frequent.
Nice balance between performance, durability and price. In other words, the perfect training tire for when you want to hang with the fast group. Used them on a couple trips to Italy and they handled snowy mountain descents and Tuscan gravel with equal aplomb.
I've been using these tires for about 3 months now and continue to be impressed with them, this may actually be the longest I've had the same pair of tubeless tires on my bike. I'm heavy and I ride on a lot of bad roads and I'm not careful enough to avoid all of the hazards (rocks, broken glass, etc.) so for tires to last even this relatively short amount of time for me is awesome. I did get two pinhole sized punctures (losing about 10psi overnight) that refused to seal with Muc-Off's sealant for some odd reason but sealed when I put Oko Hi-Fibre Magic Milk in my tires (awesome stuff, unfortunately not sold by many in the USA). I do like the fact that Vittoria makes these tires thicker than many of the competitors' tires while keeping the rolling resistance pretty low, sealant seems to do a better job when there is more rubber to cling to in my experience with tubeless.
The ride quality has improved as other reviews have mentioned, I didn't notice for a while because I was running my pressures too high but since dropping a few psi that feeling of floating over bumps is magnificent. Sections of road I used to dread riding on aren't so bad now, of course hitting a big pothole will suck no matter what tires you're using but the cracks, moderate bumps and chip seal sections are noticeably smoothed out. These have to be the best tubeless tires I've used to date and I've tried quite a few, there may be better tires out there but I'm very happy with these and will continue using them for the foreseeable future.
First TLR I thought would never mount on my SLR hook rims. New rim tape and good bike shop but lost most or all air an hour or two into the rides. Good news is once the shop expanded the tape outward it stayed up and performed well on curves and descents. After hitting a lone rock hiding along a shaded mountain shoulder at 30mph thought no tire would survive, impact is visible but completely rideable. Would try another of these on the wheel with extra rim tape but had to borrow a wheel for a century whilst sorting through the issues, so even the more fragile Michelin or less durable Schwalbe preferable on the other wheel. Price often better than Conti or Maxxis though.
Iï¿½ve used a few different Vittoria tires both regular and tubeless but this is the only one I would recommend to others. They were easy to mount and inflate on my Bontrager RSL 51s and they hold air as well as can be expected. Out on the road they are comfortable and feel faster than BRRï¿½s test results would suggest, my completely unscientific assumption was that they were in the 10 watt area at 120psi. At least a couple of online reviews suggest that these are supposed to be competition for the GP5000 S TR but really they are closer in performance to the Pirelli P Zeros and have a better road feel imo. Puncture resistance has been good enough, I havenï¿½t had a flat yet despite running over some sharp rocks and glass. They did inflate larger than I was expecting getting up to about 31mm after a couple of weeks, if I was overly concerned with aerodynamics I would be disappointed.
I bought these tires to replace a pair of dismally performing Maxxis ReFuse tires that not only rolled poorly, but had poor puncture resistance.
So far these tires are proving to be excellent handling and fast rolling in 1+ months of use. The ride well in a variety of conditions, including downpours I've been caught in a number of times this Summer, they corner very well and I've noticed a pronounced speed increase, even compared to the Bontrager Hard Case R3 TLRs I've had previously on my two Trek road bikes, to the point my average speed has gone up about one mph or more on rides with them. They've proven durable in riding across rough road conditions without flatting with tubes. Can't speak to long-term durability, but hoping they last for many thousands of miles.
The one issue I have with them is I couldn't get them to setup tubeless straightaway out of the package, no matter what I did, even with a 200psi air compressor. I've never had such issues with other tires I've setup tubeless on my my road bikes. I'm hoping that now that I've gotten a half-dozen or more rides in on them with tubes to set the bead that I will be able to yank the tubes and set them up tubeless.
By accident I've gotten three Strava segment PR's with these tires on. Switched from the Pirelli TLR Race after reading a couple of reviews and getting a couple of Pirelli punctures. They were easy to install on Reserve and Shimano wheels, almost impossible on Mavic (isn't everything?). At the same pressures they seem to ride quite a bit softer. Grip is all there. There's plenty of spring road trash and after 500 miles I haven't yet gotten a puncture yet. (outside riding starts late here in the mountain NW) I'm guessing these are 2+K mile tires by the lack of wear they're showing. I'll get another set.
I enjoyed these tires very much and have no complaints whatsoever except their overall short life span. I put approximately 974 miles on my set and the rear tire's wear indicator dimple was already gone. Over the course of the 974 miles, I picked up 2 punctures that sealed immediately with Stans sealant. Nice smooth ride with confidence inspiring traction. At 5'9 / 215lbs, I had the rears set to 65psi and the fronts at 62psi. I ride mostly on swept bike trails but will also do the occasional canyon ride with beat up roads.
These tires are simply amazing. Durable, reliable and tuff. I've even had these tires off road and not one flat as of yet, which is saying a lot for a bike tire out here in Arizona with all the mesquite trees and thorns popping up everywhere, including on the pavement. I whole heartedly recommend them for street use no matter where you reside.
As was mentioned in other reviews, the fit was extremely tight to the point I was unable to install them on my Roval wheels and ended up returning. I expect a struggle with tubeless tires but with these I had to give up after I couldn't pull them over using a scary amount of force on my rim with a tire bead jack. Continentals fit my wheels using a small amount of leverage, bummer seems they get pretty good reviews for ride quality.
I bought a set of these in 700x32 & mounted up to Zipp 303 Firecrests as an alternate road biased wheelset for my titanium Gravel bike. Packaging is a nice touch as you are left with a recyclable "tray" to keep misc stuff in. The tires are non-directional and mounted up with just a floor pump.
No issues thus far with durability or wear issues. No flats. Good road feedback.
They roll fine, but not as well as as the 700x28 Conti GP 5000 S TR's I have on my dedicated road bike.
If you buy these, don't jump to immediate conclusions. Quite oddly, the mannerisms seemed to steadily improve over the first few rides. I've never experienced a "breaking in" experience like that before.
I'm 187 lbs... on the pavement and chipseal, I'm finding 53psi R/ 51psi F to be the sweet spot.
After rapidly going through 2 sets of my favorite Vittoria 2.0 speed TLR tires that had succumbed to unrepairable damage from a massive amount of road debris this summer, I wanted to try the new nylon cased Corsa N.EXT G 2.0 TLR tires. My experience seems to indicate they are no better than the original cotton casing 2.0 tires. Another, more exasperating feature I noticed is, even though Vittoria claims these tubeless ready tires to be more air tight than the regular cotton cased tires, they leak air through extreme porosity of the nylon casing. Why this is, I don't know, but the cotton casing tires on my wife's bike don't leak as much as these nylon cased tires do on my bike. I check this after I mount a new tire by inflating the tire and spraying it with soap solution to verify that the Stan's sealant is doing it's job, which is good in the rim/tire area, but funny enough, the air bubbles are happening all over the tread and sidewall areas of the tire. Now, I'm back to having to re-inflate my tires every day, just like my tubulars of years ago, to keep 75 lbs. PSI. And, these leaks seem to never fill with sealant. Weird. Now, I'm on my 2nd rear N.EXT, we will see if it will hold air. It was an experiment, after all, and maybe my 1st set of N.EXTs' were defective. I want to believe these tires are better, especially for the high price they are asking for them.
I bought these after a spate of massive punctures (unrepairable, unsealable) with other tires. Vittorias are not necessarily known for flat prevention, so I took a chance on the new formulation. They ride like Vittorias (sublime) and have held up nicely with around 500 miles on them. Fingers crossed!
I purchased Victoria Corsa N.EXT TLR size 700x30 based on the ratings. I use Cannondale Hollow-gram carbon rims. Unfortunately, I could not mount the tire because it fitted too tightly. I sprayed with the soap solution which did not work. I mounted many tires before but this one was too tight. Ended up scratching the rim. However, was able to polish it with fine sandpaper and car polish.
