Cotton tires: The choice of World Tour riders
Vittoria racing heritage is deeply connected with the success of Corsa cotton tires, which are - and have always been - the tire choice of countless riders in the peloton. So many iconic races have been won on Vittoria cotton tires: 19 Tour de France, 18 Giro d’Italia, 10 Vuelta a España, not to count the victories at the Classics, World Championships, European Championships and Olympic Games.
From October 2022, Vittoria Corsa PRO cotton tires have been used in race by Team Jumbo-Visma, Alpecin-Deceuninck, Education First-Easy Post, Team DSM, Astana-Qazaqstan, Lotto Dstny and many others.
The seamless cotton casing tire
When it comes to Top Performance applications, Cotton tire casing has superior qualities compared with nylon. It’s more supple, more flexible, and lighter. Cotton allows the casing to perfectly adhere to every ripple of the tarmac, resulting in continuous contact between the tire and the ground, effective grip and never-ending traction.
With the new Corsa PRO clinchers, Vittoria engineers succeeded in incorporating the rubber tire tread with the cotton casing by a new and more sustainable electrical vulcanization. Through this process, the rubber tread is completely embedded with the casing, creating a 100% seamless product. The benefits are related to improved flexibility, which grants even more suppleness and perfect adaptability to the terrain. In addition, the laboratory tests have proven significant aerodynamics drag gains in fast-paced disciplines. Corsa PRO 320 TPI cotton casing – the finest available in the market – provides that suppleness, comfort and lightweight pro-riders are used to but now served in a stronger tire construction which boosts the tire speed.
