PIRELLI PRESENTS P ZERO RACE TT, THE FASTEST AND LIGHTEST CLINCHER TYRE OF ITS RANGE
Designed for professional cyclists and anyone in search of speed and lightness
Produced in the Pirelli plant of Bollate (Milan)
Successor of the P ZERO Velo TT, the choice of many champions of the World Tour teams
Milan (Italy), 21 February 2023 – Pirelli presents P ZERO Race TT, the top-performing clincher tyre for professional riders and the sportiest amateurs. It is produced in the renovated Pirelli plant of Bollate, just outside Milan, and completes the racing tyre 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 tyre 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 Citroën 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 tyre 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 tyre, 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.
