For the race of truth, leave nothing to chance. Your equipment as well as your training should be optimized before you even climb the stairs to the start house. Vittoria's Crono Evo CS Tubular Tire is their lightest offering, and it's made for those days when you must go as fast as possible, alone.
The Corespun T 320 tpi casing is handmade using the finest polyester thread, overspun with cotton. This particular casing is crafted to bear the high pressures typical when minimal rolling resistance is the number one goal. That said, the high density fabric is coated in natural latex rubber, creating a supple and responsive tire that absorbs energy and rebounds from irregularities in the road surface, again minimizing resistance. The same can be said for the natural latex tube inside the Crono Evo CS Tubular Tire. It's widely accepted that latex tubes are faster, saving you a few watts to maintain a given speed. When seconds count, details like these add up to a winning combination.
Vittoria's Kevlar SiO₂ rubber compound blends minimal rolling resistance with excellent traction and durability thanks to its high silica content and percentage of microscopic Kevlar particles. And where many ultra-lightweight TT tires forego any sort of puncture resistant breaker under the tread, the Crono Evo CS Tubular Tire has no such weakness. After all, we can't always race on freshly paved courses fit for Tour contenders, and Vittoria's PRB (puncture resistant belting) nylon layer may make the difference between a personal best or walking back to the start line.
The Vittoria Crono Evo CS Tubular Tire is available in 700 x 22c only. It has a Black tread and comes with a 42mm alloy valve stem.
