Cyclingnews Verdict

‘Classics tread’ version of Vittoria’s popular Corsa adds physical and psychological confidence, rides smoothly and wears really well. Tubeless setup can be a fight though and it can cut easily


  • +

    Excellent tread durability

  • +

    Buoyant ride quality and decent speed

  • +

    Increased dirty grip and psychosomatic confidence


  • -

    Awkward sealant-specific tubeless-ready setup

  • -

    Cuts relatively easily

  • -

    Not as fast as older Graphene tyres in the lab

You can trust Cyclingnews Our experts spend countless hours testing cycling tech and will always share honest, unbiased advice to help you choose. Find out more about how we test.

The Vittoria Corsa Control road tyre was introduced a couple of years ago (it was the winning tyre under Tiesj Benoot at the 2018 Strada Bianche) but it was more-recently updated with Vittoria’s ‘functionalised’ Graphene 2.0 quad compound rubber mix. Is that the all-round win the Italian brand claims and does its new tech merit the tyres a place on our guide to the best road bike tyres and best tubeless road tyres?
