Strengths:    Run very quickly, look good ( style over substance )

Weaknesses:    No puncture resistance, valve base is useless, expensive, lose air in a matter of hours

Bottom Line:   
Run a few of these, and have managed no more than three short rides on each sets. These don't resist any type of road imperfections. C£60 per tyre, so that's about a tenner a mile... Steer clear.

Strengths:    Great handling, excellent on the descents and curbs.

Weaknesses:    Lose air overnight

Bottom Line:   
I've had these tired for over 2 years with over 1000 miles ridden and I haven't had any of the problems with flats that I've read about here. I think these problems might come from the level of knowledge and skills the technician or person that installed them. I ride over various types of surfaces with no problems so far. I love these tires and will buy again.

Strengths:    Low rolling resistance, excellent grip, fast!

Weaknesses:    Low puncture resistance.

Bottom Line:   
I have tried them since April this year and rode for about 1000 km (625 mi). Rear tyre had two punctures and I am afraid it's going to necessary to replace it soon. This is my first experience with tubulars and I haven't used other tyre to compare to. It's a pity... I always wanted to ride Vittoria's tubolares and so far I've got frustrated. I hope this rear tyre would last a couple of hundred miles more.

Strengths:    Comfort, Grip - also in the prices, weight/puncture resistance aspect

Weaknesses:    Price, new valve system has no benefit - but is pricey, price, durability, price

Bottom Line:   
Despite only being 21 mm wide, the comfort is great on my Zipp 303 - supposedly due to the latex inner tube.
I run the with sealant and manage to close 9 of 10 flats with superglue from the outside and sealant from within.

Date Reviewed: August 23, 2011

Strengths:    Comfortable ride, good handling.

Weaknesses:    Lose air faster than most tubulars, tubes tend to rupture long before casing is worn - and long before I'm ready to shell out for a new tire.

Bottom Line:   
This is the new 320 tpi tire. I like the grip and ride quality of the corsas, but was hoping for improved longevity. Unfortunately I have ridden these less than a season and one is already shot. I pumped up the tires prior to a group ride (120 psi) and was putting my helmet on when I heard the dreaded pop and hiss. Sure enough the front tire was flat. No major damage to the casing or other problem, the tube just failed. I may try some sealant, but haven't had much luck repairing Vittorias that way. I probably have less than a thousand miles on the tires since I mounted them. I have had this problem with previous Vittorias and can no longer justify buying them. I've had far better luck with Tufos and will probably go back to those.

Vittoria Open Corsa EVO Cx wet weather performance question.

But I remember reading a few comments about their wet weather performance. As I don't choose to start rides in rainy conditions I don't have any w ... Read More »

Vittoria Open Corsa EVO CX......why?

Read the recent threads about the great sale prices. Did a search and found many, many remarks about poor longevity, cut resistance and great suppleness and feel with some latex tubes. Plus the tire is actual size or even wider: a 25c is 27mm on a 23mm wide rim! Even for a raceday tire why would ... Read More »
