Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ 2.0 (TLR) road bike tire on a rolling resistance test machine

The Vittoria Corsa Speed TLR has been the fastest tire on our site since the beginning of 2016. With the release of the new Graphene 2.0 compounds, Vittoria also updated the Corsa Speed TLR with the new version of this compound. Vittoria claims they once again improved rolling resistance, but they also claim the Graphene 2.0 compound increases wear-life and grip on the sides.

Conclusion


Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ 2.0 (TLR) road bike tire on a rolling resistance test machine

Unlike the regular Corsa G+ 2.0 that actually had a higher rolling resistance than the original G+ 1.0 version, The Corsa Speed TLR G+ 2.0 does have a ~10% lower rolling resistance than the previous version. With a rolling resistance of 7.0 watts at 120 psi / 8.3 bars, Vittoria has cemented their number 1 position on our site and we have to wonder how much lower rolling resistance of road bike tires can go.


Rated 5 out of 5 as that's the only possible rating when you strengthen your number 1 rating on Bicycle Rolling Resistance. We're really curious about real-life experiences with these tires as well, feel free to leave a comment and let us know about durability, grip, and puncture resistance.
