Why We Like The Corsa G Plus Tire

Anyone with a passing interest in cycling tech has probably been exposed to the hype surrounding Vittoria's new quadruple compound design, the heart of which is a thin, nearly transparent layer of carbon called graphene. The claims made for this material have been impressive, but we weren't sure what to think until we got our hands on Vittoria's Corsa G Plus Clincher Tires. Vittoria blends four rubber compounds with the inclusion of graphene for the Corsa G, and, without throwing any hyperbole around, we'd say the difference is very noticeable.

The tires' 4C ISOtech construction, which allows for separate base and surface compounds to be strategically placed throughout the tire, made cornering feel smooth and consistent while the fast-rolling center reduces the atrophy of watts on straightaways. Vittoria claims that the elasticity and carbon construction of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire, but for even more reassurance, it adds KEVLAR to further reinforce the core-spun K casing. With multiple cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, core-spun casings are significantly stronger than typical casings, and they don't add additional weight to the tire.

The Corsa G's luxurious 320 TPI is a final element that sets it apart from other tires. TPI measures the number of threads per inch in a tire's casing, with higher counts equating to a lighter tire with a suppler ride. Whether it's due to the high TPI, the claimed benefits of graphene, or a combination of both, we can attest to the Corsa G's supple road feel and ability to smooth chattering chip seal surfaces. In the clincher version, each Corsa G Plus will add between 235g and 265g to your frame, depending on size, and the tires' classic, gum-wall aesthetic makes them an eye-catching addition to your frame.

  • A superlative cycling race tire
  • 4C ISOtech construction blends multiple compounds
  • Graphene reinforces without compromising road feel
  • 320 TPI core-spun casing is race-day supple

I used to love the Open Corsa CX tires as they just rode so smoothly but they used to wear too way quickly and they also weren't a good match for all the crap on our suburban Maryland roads. I went to some Continental GP 4000s and quite was happy for a while. They rode well (not as nice as the Opens) and they wore much better. However, the new Conti 5000 gave me issues. They were wearing out fast and more importantly, I had a bad batch that had THREE sidewall blowouts. In each case, it was moments after a high-speed descent... glad the downhills weren't longer. But damn, months later I'm still trying to get my nerve back on fast, twisty downhills as the idea of a front sidewall blowing out at 40+ mph has me rocked. That said, it was time for a change so I picked up some of these. While they don't seem quite as supple as the Open Corsa CX of memory they ride nicely, seem pretty sticky, and are wearing surprisingly well. Well enough that I bought six of them to outfit a couple of bikes and account for the 2 to 1 rear to front wear. And if you have been riding a hard tire like Gatorskins for a while, try these. They'll make it feel like you have a new bike. Life is too short to ride hard tires.

I have run these Corsa +Graphene tires in 25mm for almost 2 years now. Personally have only had 3 flats on these tires over the course of 2 years. I have them on my race wheels and training wheels. Being a small/lightweight rider, i dont worry much about flats compared to most people because I have less weight on the tires to cause a puncture. However, with all the skidding, bunny hopping and dirt sections that I do on training rides, I cant believe these tires stand up to the beating. These are great race tires but also solid training tires if you dont want to sacrifice watts with some ultra durable tires

Lol all the people trashing these tires. Nobody is a bigger cycling snob than I am and these are the best clinchers I have ever used. 25c with latex tubes on Vision Metron SL’s; 20mm internal width. I run em at 80psi. These tire plump up niiice and the cornering grip, comfort, and straight line speed are incredible. I rode these things over gravel, broken pavement, through city street gutters, and not a single cut to the rubber. If you’re just plowing through your ride like a donkey that’s probably the reason your tires are getting biffed. I don’t really care if they wear out quickly. I bought 3 tires off here for $27/each and there are always deals to be found. Love these damn tires.

My snobby-ass pinky raised to you in gratitude for your honest review sir!

A few years ago, I set out on a safari - to explore the wonderful world of performance road tires. I scoured the internet and bicycle magazine reviews for hours and hours before I finally said ENOUGH! I'm going to stop reading what other people said and see for myself. To be clear, I run conventional clinchers with tubes. For almost 3 years, I bike commuted to work (majority of my miles) and raced on the weekends (minority). I would rotate each set of tires regularly (front to back) and used both butyl and latex tubes in each new set of tires I would try. I have tried all of the following in the 700X25 or 26 size: Specialized S-Works Turbo, Specialized Turbo Cotton, Continental GP 4000 and 5000, Vittoria Corsa G+, and Vittoria Corsa G+ Speed. Without question or hesitation, the Vittoria's (G+ and G+ Speed) are far and away THE best performance tires IMO. I thought the performance was phenomenal with butyl tubes - and then I dropped in a pair of latex tubes and they jumped into a whole different performance category. Durability - these are performance tires so they are not going to have the durability of Conti Hardshell Gatorskins. That being said, with appropriate rotation and routine inspection, I was very impressed with how many miles I could get from a set of these tires given how much these tires are marketed, engineered, and perform as "race" tires.

On the topic of durability understandably they are not trainers but what is actual durability compared to other options you mentioned: below. equal or more? I am looking at the same options from SWorks, Conti & Vittoria but putting emphasis also on puncture protection & durability?

I've read plenty of mixed review and was very cautious with this investment. But I figured, "F it." I've been on a few 100 plus mile rides so far with these. I even commuted to work with these tires, several times. The area I live has plenty of beat city roads, litter, broken glass, etc... I have had a couple nice cuts in them but I always inspect my tires after a ride and fill cuts in with super glue mixed with baking soda. I even fill my tubes with sealant ( yes. it works). So far Im really loving these tires. They corner nice and I dig the noise they make. I have 25mm rubbers wrapped on Hunt Aero 34 Wide wheels and they measure out to be 28mm when I have them inflated to about 80 +/- PSI. They handle my heavier self pretty damn well.

I got a set of these Vittoria tires for my 35 year old vintage Italian road bike. I've been using blackwall tires on this bike for several years, but they just don't look right with a vintage frame and components. So far, I'm happy with these Vittoria G-plus tires with two exceptions - they are very hard to install (on vintage Mavic G40 rims) and I got a flat within the first 20 miles of riding on these - maybe just luck, don't know. In any case, I'm glad to have these tires for this particular bike.

I have been using these tires for about 2 months. I recently ordered another two. We have some very rough roads in NC . The pressure that I run is 92 in the front and 95 in the rear. These 25 mm tires have made road cycling enjoyable for me. I have used other tires over the last two years . The others do not roll as smooth as the Vittoria . I wish these were sold in a twin pack by Competitive Cyclist.

This Vittoria tire, Corsa G Plus, feels a lot like all the others I have used,,,,CGs and CX's ...smooth, supple ride easy on my back side...not the most durable, but the route I ride is predominantly smooth and well swept by street cleaners, so I have had no problem with punctures until the tread gets really thin. I will keep buying them because I enjoy how they feel.

This is a review of the Vittoria Corsa COrsa G-Plus. I used this Vittoria tire today over the same roads and under the same conditions that I have used Continental 4000 II s tires (for tens of thousands of miles). Conti 4000's give me around 3,000 miles. I got 47.3 miles of service out of this Vittoria tire. They stopped making the Conti 4000 and the replacement 5000 gets mixed reviews. So I thought I'd try another tire. The Corsa G-Plus tire tore a hole 1/4 X 1/4 inch from passing over a pebble. Sure, at the end of life of a Conti 4000 there will be evident slits on the tread contact surface of around 1/8 inch in length but I've never had one fail from that - and certainly not like this Corsa tire did. Granted, my experience is with only one Corsa Plus tire and only over 47 miles.....but that's enough for me. People may not seem crazy about the current Conti 5000 that replaces the 4000 but it has to be better than Vittoria Coras Plus.

They sound just as awesome as they look!

I’ve had these for over a year now, I use to run continentals which ok too but the Look of the Vittoria is what drew me in this gum wall... awesome. However after getting over the look of them and actually starting to put them to work.. the ride quality it unmatched! It’s comfortable and also quite responsive enough in races. When it’s just you and your bike on the open the road they sound... awesome. I haven’t had a puncher issue, none more than a typical tire and I’ve done well over a thousand miles. Only reason I’m not giving it 5stars is because after a year now it has a small part of the tire that looks like it’s lifting of the body.. but again that’s year later. Bottom line yes I would and have recommend this!

I've been running these on my single speed for the past 6 months, have logged around 800 miles and they've been great. A lot of those miles have been under load, as I have panniers and haul everything from groceries to golf clubs on trips to the driving range. I'm almost exclusively an urban cyclist (Wash, DC) and have had one flat (front, gnarly piece of glass that would've split a tank tread) only. Really smooth ride as well. Just bought 2 more as they're on sale.

Don't waste your money

I have ridden Vittoria tires for years so I bought 6 of Corsa G's on sale. Terrible decision. ALL of the tires failed quickly so I can't really tell you what tread life is like. The tires are easily cut (fatal) by glass or debris and goatheads/thorns go right through the tire. If you have these, carry a tire boot - you will need it. My riding buddies started making fun of me given the frequency of failure.

They get cut like crazy. Nice ride comfort

Had a pair of slicks on my Cervelo R2 when I purchased it so when it came time to replace I thought I'd try these. So far, smooth ride and great control on turns. Only have about 200 miles on them, and using latex tube so only running about 85 psi.

Bought 2. Used 1. 3 flats in 10 rides on 1 tire. Only 1 of the 3 flats (the 2nd one) had any likely cause. The first was super clean flat road & nobody saw anything & nobody else flatted. The third, similar. This tire has roughly zero puncture resistance. It even feels trashy thin.

Disappointed

I have had at least 4 pairs of these. On my wife's bike, I put on a brand new 23mm set and noticed that after 2-3 rides on smooth, new tarmac the tread was peeling away from the tube. Probably a defective tire but for the price and importance, I'm done with these.
