The tubular standard.

If you’re running tubular wheels on your road bike, you’ve likely heard of the Vittoria Corsa EVO CX III Tubular Tires. They’re so widely used that, for a time, we didn’t carry any others. The 320 threads-per-inch construction makes them incredibly malleable, which in turn makes for a very smooth, comfortable ride, even at relatively high pressures.

This generation of the tire uses Vittoria’s new rubber compound, ISOgrip. Vittoria claims that you’ll get equal grip in both wet and dry conditions, and that it has the lowest rolling resistance to date. That kind of grip obviously impacts the tire’s longevity, but for a racing tire, it can’t be beat.

Best road racing tubular

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use the 25mm tubular for crit's, TT's, and road races, seems to be the best all around blend.

Pro-
- Tests well in rolling resistance as one of the best including clinchers (which often tests extremely well with latex tubes). The only tubular to come close appears to be the new Zipp tubular or the Vittoria SC (smooth tread).
- Latex tube, unlike continental
-Easy to mount and get on straight, no real pre stretching required
- very good cornering (had problems with conti tires and sliding out)
- I have run really low pressures for some crits with no issues (75-80 psi)
- never flatted on one before after several years using these tires (knock on wood)



Con-
- Poor wear, assuming you do not use them on a trainer i tend to get around 600mi front and 400-600 rear before they become somewhat suspect for racing. Around 800 miles they really start to loose their tread and flatten, by 1000-1200 i would 100% not race on them but they can be ridden for everyday use for another 2k miles before they are just totally gone.
- Price can be a bit expensive depending on your comparison point. Yes they are much more expensive than conti comps but that is not a fair comparison and compared to FMB's they are middle of the road. I will say that due to their early wear they are on the pricier side.

Race tire W/ durability & price to match

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These roll like butter even at very high pressures. Every bump feels softer and vibrations are lessened but the road feel is still superb. They are without a doubt the most comfortable and smooth-rolling tires I have ever used. That's the good news. The bad news is a few things. The price: compared to something like the Conti Sprinter, its hard to justify spending more than twice as much. They wear like you'd expect a race tire to wear. I hardly got 400 miles and 30,000ft of climbing out of them before the rear was thoroughly worn and no longer offered enough puncture resistance to be comfortably raced on. Might have been able to get 600mi but that would be pushing your luck. Front tire wears probably 1/3 as fast. I also noticed they felt slippery when braking because of the small knurled center tread pattern. It was almost like braking on sandy asphalt and not at all confidence inspiring.

Nice, smooth and fast!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am fairly new to tubulars but see no need to search for anything but the Vittoria Corsa Exo CX tires. This is my third set but the first set to have glued myself. I had a failed attempt with some Conti GP4000s (so tight that one was ruined in the mounting process). Do your homework if you are installing yourself! Mounting is a process and takes attention to detail and patience. BIG thanks to Comp Cyclist rep Adam DeWitt (ext 5630) for his advice and expertise on the mounting process!!
Tubulars, in general, deliver a much smoother, more compliant ride and also a light lighter...but if you are the fence between clinchers and tubulars, tubs will only win if you are willing to take the time to install OR are willing to pay (& trust) someone to install for you. I have run both the 23s and 25s and appreciate them both for what they are...23s are a little racier and 25s are a little more comfortable.
The GOOD: smooth, supple and fast! Can't beat 320TPI!!
Easy to install (Contis almost broke my thumb but Vittorias slide on like butter!)
Durable! I have been able to get minimum of 2000 miles on a set but probably could have squeezed a little more (I do run a small amount of sealant for insurance on flats).
The NOT SO GOOD: they are a little expensive but worth the price.
You could ask for them to be more durable but that may come at the cost of the comfort.
Bottom line: get these tires and you won't be disappointed!

Smooooooooooooth

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As the title suggests, these are some fine riding tires. The wear life on them is not the best, but they lasted me a season of racing without issue. These were on race day only wheels, and I never raced in the rain (one of the perks of living in SoCal), so I can't comment on handling, but the Open Corsas did very well while I lived in Cleveland and DID race in the rain. I suspect these will perform very similarly. Glue 'em up and go win something!
