Vittoria Open Corsa SL Tire
The Vittoria SL is the slick version of the Open Corsa CX tire. Many riders consider this to be the best choice for performance in any condition, and most other manufacturers would probably agree as the non-tread slick tire is the top choice for almost every tire producer in the cycling industry.
We managed to purchase a batch of these tires at a special low price and are passing the value along to you. This price is limited to quantity on hand.
Vittoria is famous for it's race worthy Open Tubular (clincher) tires. The venerable Open Corsa CX has been a mainstay of high level riding and racing for many years, and it has seen several design iterations. Vittoria has not rested on its laurels, continuing to push the limits of tire design and material development. The Open Corsa SL is perfect example of the company's ability to refine and advance. The use of a new rubber compound in the center tread zone has reduced rolling resistance, and the results are palpable. You get better center tread wear and more speed. At the same time, the ISOgrip rubber in the shoulder zones is still the same, so you get exceptional grip for cornering and descending as well. The Open Corsa SL is truly a clincher tire that can be raced or ridden at the highest levels.
The underlying carcass of the Open Corsa SL is the Open Tubular Corespun 320 tpi casing that you know and love. The supple, smooth and adherent ride qualities of Corsa 320 series tires are second to none. The fine cotton-poly fibers create a silk-like feel and keep the tire feathery light. The fine fibers are spun together to form a more substantial yarn that is ultimately layered to maximize the inherent properties of the individual fibers through the Corespun yarn. If you have never ridden a Vittoria 320 tpi clincher, you are missing out. The Open Corsa SL comes in at 210 grams in the 22mm width; a lightweight, refined tire that rolls fast and long, and delivers a positive connection to the road in dry conditions. Racing clinchers are practical and cost effective, but they don't have to limit you as a rider. If you want speed and grip, plus the best feel of any clincher tire on the market, the Open Corsa SL is the choice.
