If you follow the Affinity feed then you'll know well that we love Vittoria tires. Why you may ask? Well this post will pretty much clarify and also give you some insight which you may not have previously known.
For Affinity and our team riders, we ride the Corsa G competition in both clincher and tubular depending on the day to day usage. Typically our track wheels are tubular, although for the most part the clinchers roll and feel pretty much the same.
Both the tubbies and clinchers have 320 TPI (threads per inch) and like a fine suit the higher the thread count the better the tire. Higher TPI means the tire will feel more supple on the road and since the thread count is high it'll also be less prone to flats. A double win in our book.
The Corsa's (and most Vittoria tires) also feature Graphene... what's Graphene? Basically it's an extremely thin sheet of carbon fiber which has a host of advantages including better rolling resistance, better cornering capabilities and it gives the tire more grip.
Overall the Corsa's are one of the best all around performance tire, we use them year round on the road, and track (whether wood, or asphalt)... hell we even train indoors on them!
Lastly, we want to comment on the Vittoria Mastik glue... it's pretty much a staple for track racers, it's super tacky and ensures you'll never roll a tire. Enough said, basically it's an industry standard in our world.
Oh the best part, they come in gum wall and anthracite... thank you Vittoria for making the tire of our dreams.
