Vittoria Corsa Control G+ 2.0 TLR road bike tire on a rolling resistance test machine

The Vittoria Corsa Control G+ 2.0 TLR is a tubeless-ready cotton tire that provides extra cornering grip when you need it. I mention cornering grip here explicitly as the Corsa Control shares the same 4C Graphene 2.0 compound and center tread pattern as the regular Vittoria Corsa. The differences are in the textured tread pattern on the sides of the tread and also a slightly wider tread so you can lean the bike over further.


We already tested the non-TLR version of the Corsa Control G+ 2.0 (read our review) back in 2019 and found it to perform very close to the regular non-TLR Corsa G+ 2.0 on our tests (read our review). As we also tested the G+ 2.0 TLR version of the regular Vittoria Corsa last week (read our review), we can again compare it to that tire directly and hopefully make the choice of Corsa or Corsa Control a bit easier for you.


Just like the regular Corsa TLR, the Corsa Control is available in the 25-622, 28-622, and 30-622 sizes which seems like a good fit for a tire like the Corsa Control. Unfortunately, and just like the regular Corsa TLR, the Corsa Control TLR is only available with black sidewalls as Vittoria uses some kind of black coating to help seal the sidewalls.

All numbers are for a single tire at a speed of 29 km/h / 18 mph and a load of 42.5 kg / 94 lbs.

Use the formula: RR (Watts) = CRR * speed (m/s) * load (N) to calculate rolling resistance at a given speed and load.

Conclusion


  • Vittoria Corsa Control G+ 2.0 TLR
Performance compared to all other road bike tires
(100% is fastest - lightest - thickest - strongest)

Performance of the tubeless-ready Vittoria Corsa Control G+ 2.0 in our tests is almost identical to the tubeless-ready version of the Vittoria Corsa G+ 2.0 (compare). The small differences can be traced back to the slightly wider tread of the Corsa Control which results in an increased rolling resistance of between 0 and 4 percent, and an increased weight of 10 grams.


With such small differences, it's up to the individual to decide between these tires. We think you probably can't go wrong with either of these tires but suggest to use the Corsa Control TLR if you want to play it safe. If you need the performance benefit, the regular Corsa TLR might just give you an edge.

RATING: 4.0 / 5
TEST VERDICT:
Recommended
