Pirelli Presents P ZERO Race TT, The Fastest and Lightest Clincher Tire of Its Range
February 21, 2023
Designed for professional cyclists and anyone in search of speed and lightness
Milan (Italy), 21 February 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Pirelli presents P ZERO Race TT, the top-performing clincher tire for professional riders and the sportiest amateurs. It is produced in the renovated Pirelli plant of Bollate, just outside Milan, and completes the racing tire range by taking over from the P ZERO Velo TT, which had marked Pirelli’s return to the cycling world in 2017 with several medal-winning achievements.
SMARTEVO COMPOUND AND LITE CASING
P ZERO Race TT is the smoothest and lightest clincher tire of the entire P ZERO Race range, designed to meet the requirements of the World Tour teams backed by Pirelli, combined with the ultra-light Pirelli SmarTUBE inner tubes. Indeed, teams such as the US Trek-Segafredo or the French AG2R have already chosen P ZERO Race TT for some 2022 stages of the Vuelta or the Tour de France.
The tread of the new P ZERO Race TT is based on the SmartEVO compound characterizing the P ZERO family, developed to offer a very low rolling resistance, great control at top speeds and an excellent grip. Besides, unlike its predecessor, P ZERO Race TT’s tread is not “slick”. Its design is that of P ZERO Race, thereby enhancing driveability and cornering control. In comparison to this product though, the new tire is 5% lighter and features 15% lower rolling resistance*. With a 120 TPI nylon LITE casing, without additional protections, the Pirelli R&D department has further optimised the tire, again with a view to offering the lowest possible rolling resistance.
With the unmistakable red logo on the sides, P ZERO Race TT is already available for purchase, in the sizes of 26-622 and 28-622.
* Internal tests carried out by the R&D department on tires in sizes 28-622 vs P ZERO Race Tube Type.
