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 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 run it at 50 psi on my new Zipp 303 firecrest. Absolutely love it. Very supple and grippy. Great comfort yet good road feels. You can mount it in either direction so no more wrong directions like GP5000. Can't comment on installation difficulty because I can't do it myself (or any other tubeless tire), had to ask LBS to install it, and the technician didn't complain about it. No tan sidewall but I'm not into it anyway.
