The Power of Performance. Pirelli Technology for the Perfect Balance

At the intersection of classic motorsports-inspired design and innovative technology, Pirelli's new Cinturato Velo 700c road tires deliver a new generation of performance, functionality and comfort.

Pirelli's SmartNET™ Silica technology delivers high rolling efficiency, thanks to its natural anisotropic orientation, which reduces heating while increasing elasticity, to help minimize energy dissipation.

Developed over a 60 tpi casing, the Cinturato Velo features Functional Groove Design and Ideal Contour Shaping technologies: the casing textile is designed to match contour for optimal footprint, while a different crown and sidewall radius guarantee controlled and specific tire deformation at different speeds and lean angles.

On top of this, the lightning bolt groove design, derived from Pirelli's experience in motorbike racing tire design, adds optimal water drainage at different angles and force loads, while ensuring low noise output and quick warm-up times, for immediate maximum grip levels, period.

Features:

  • 66 TPI
  • SmartNET Silica compound
  • Aramid Fiber anti-puncture technology
  • 700c
  • Available in sizes 26, 28, 32, 35mm
  • Available in black or classic para (tanwall)
  • Tubeless Ready

Great Tires

Been using Conti Gaterback Hardshell but never liked the way they rode. Stiff and cornering was poor. These Pirellis are just awesome and certainly seem very well constructed. Great ride at 90psi and they stick like glue in corners. Pay attention to the different max/min pressures for tubeless vs tubed. Mounting them on Mavic Ksyrium Allroad rims was easy after I set them in the sun for a bit. Running them with tubes - Michelin A2s.

Id read early reviews saying this was a good ride, but also complaints that it didnt hold air and was hard to mount. I mounted them on DT Swiss Spline 24 rims using Stanss Notubes rim tape and 3 oz. of Stans standard sealant and have had zero problems, and no pressure loss, even over a two week layoff for that bike. The ride and handling have exceeded my expectations. A great all-road tire.

The best bomb proof tire out there. 4.1mm thickness is thicker than any other tire out there. I've put over 7000 miles on this tire. It's tubeless. Not one puncture hiss ever let alone an actual flat.

I'm a former GP5000TL diehard. The Cinturatos have thoroughly impressed me and have become my primary tire of choice. My riding is city/county roads, at a sporty, but not race, pace. 16-18mph, ish (I'm 6'0, 190lbs, on the700x28s). Potholes, chipseal, gravel, broken glass, etc., are commonplace and unavoidable. The GP5000s were good, soft, and fast, but noticeably picked up a lot of debris which led to many sealable flats and, unfortunately, a few un-sealable flats. Just the nature of Baltimore riding.

I've had the Cinturatos for about 500 miles now. They are marginally slower than the GP5000s--noticeable, I think, but nowhere near an impediment. And, so what if they are? Pedal harder! The puncture protection and longevity that you get in exchange is 1000% worth it for someone like me who just wants a solid tire that will keep up with friends and that will last a long while. While they're clearly not a supple race tire, these tires are no slouch if you want to punch it for a few sprints. I have such a peace of mind while riding, which makes my rides so much more enjoyable.

These are so, so grippy (which is maybe why they're a bit slower?) and give great confidence in corners/descents. They generally have more rolling resistance (than GP5000TLs, but what doesn't). Over the past 500 miles, I've run over glass, gravel, gone off-road a bit, hit a few too many potholes. And the tires? Still look brand new, no tread loss, a few nicks here and there in the rear.

These are amazing. I'll update after 2,000 miles and will undoubtedly be running these through the winter and into next year.

Tubeless Pirellei Cinturato - New Favorite Brand

This is me second set of Cinturatos, I like the extra width of 26C but you have to keep that in mind if your frame does not have a lot of clearance. On a Spinergy FCC 47 wheelset with 18mm internal width the tire measures out to 28mm. The tires were easy to mount by hand without using any tools. For my tubeless setup I use Orange Seal valves and sealant. I had a set of Continental 5000TL before these and they were very fragile, they cut easily and did not last for more than 1k miles. The Cinturato is a more rugged tire than the 5000TL, with more rubber in the thread area but it still has a fast rolling ride quality and they have lasted over 3k miles including some short trips on dirt roads. This is my first experience with Pirelli branded bicycles tires and I am very satisfied, longtime Continental user, many decades, but I now have a new favorite brand. For my next set when the Cinturatos wears out I will try the new higher performance SLR tires recently release by Pirelli.

Biggest tire I could fit
rating

I700x35 tubeless tire mounted easily for me. I used a compressor, but I think I could have gotten the bead to set with a floor pump. I run 70 psi in this tire. Makes for a very smooth ride compared to a higher pressure, thinner tire.

I noticed that the bike seems a little slower on the take off from a stop. I suppose this is because a tire this large weighs more than a skinnier time. I don't notice this anymore after riding them for 500 miles. I can't say whether the tires are faster or slower than other tires because the difference isn't that dramatic. I'm mainly interested in comfort.

I went with this tire because i needed a 26 to clear the frame on my rim brake Tarmac. My favorite Conti 5000 tls 28s rub the fork and brake stay. Theses Pirellis are durable, handle great and fairly easy to mount after first seating with a tube or compressor. They are not super soft so they dont pick up every piece of glass but soft enough to hit downhills corners with confidence. Ive done hillclimbs, canyons and centuries with almost no problems. I did get a sidewall cut that killed the tire but i dont know if any tire could have survived the sharp debris i hit. Overall great commuter / trainer.

I bought these in 28mm to replace a worn-out pair of Specialized Roubaix Pro 25/28mm tires on my loaded-pannier commuter. After a few hundred miles I can report that they are a comparable replacement to the Roubaix Pro (which is a great faster commuter tire). They appear to be durable and they roll pretty fast and corner well given how sturdy they are. If you can fit bigger sizes and run lower pressure (tubeless and/or by rider weight), they can feel plush on rough Michigan roads.

These are one durable tire and do great on wet roads. My roads are littered with small gravel, glass and debris and these have held up wonderfully. No punctures so far and they are setup tubeless just in case. I have had no issues with the tires losing inflation like I have with some other TLR tires. I have dropped my tire pressure from what I ran when I first set them up. I am currently using the SILCA Tire Pressure Tool https://silca.cc/pages/sppc-form and I am running between 48 to 52 depending on the road conditions for the day. These are a fantastic training and all season tire. My only complaint is that they do have noticeable rolling resistance compared to other tires so I would choose another tire for a bike race. All said they are a well made and durable tire that will perform well regardless of what you throw at them. Highly recommended for anyone but a serious racer or KOM chaser who would find the rolling resistance noticeable.

I bought this to replace a tire (Schwalbe Pro One) on my wife's Specialized Creo. Was easy to get on the rim (Roval C38) and seat. She likes the ride and usually runs it at 70 psi. She's got about 500 miles on it and has yet to get a puncture. Looks very similar to the Pro One with the tan wall.

Excellent Tire - First Impressions
rating
by NKY-Domane

I installed these one week ago on a Bontrager wheel using their tubeless rim strips and valves with Bontrager sealant the blue version. Tires went on easier than other tubeless road tires I have installed from other brands. With the rim strips things can be tight but all went well. The tires inflated using a standard floor pump and after a week of no use they were still inflated. No seeping from the tire or sidewalls. Upon my first ride I rode 38 miles on them. I am 6-1 tall and weigh 201 pounds. I inflated to 62 psi on the rear and 60 on the front. A little lower than the included instruction sheet. My first ride impression is that I'm really impressed. They really grip the road on dry or wet pavement. Light silt and dirt no problems and overall ride quality was really nice. I really couldn't notice if they had more rolling resistance than the other tires I have used except for the GP 5000 but I also did not expect that it would match that tire. I chose these for the 35c size, improved durability and perceived tacky nature of the tires construction. So far I am really happy and impressed, I wanted a tire with a lot of durability and I hope this is it. I'll post another review once I have rode on these for a few hundred miles.

I bought these tires as a literal last-second emergency replacement of a damaged tire before a 200 mile epic event. The ride took place on open road pavement of all states of repair (everything from city streets to decaying farm road to gravel patches). I did the research, and these seemed to fit what I needed. And I was wrong.

The Cinturato tires wouldn't seat for me at home using a home compressor and Stan's. I ended up taking it to a local shop, who had to re-tape the rims because the tire bead tore up the old tubeless tape. On my test rides the tires felt sluggish, but I figured that once they got a little scuffed up on the road they'd roll a little faster. But when you're spending 25% more energy to just keep normal pace, it's going to hurt later on, and it did.

I did not finish the event, in part because the tires dense rolling resistance sapped so much energy from me. I had to aggressively pedal going downhill to fight the excessive tackiness of the rubber compound of the Cinturatos. Going uphill felt like pushing lead weights with glue under them. There were several times I had to literally stand on the pedals to start the bike rolling in my second-to-lowest gear. And to give an idea how much ahem grip the tires have? While rolling the bike by the handlebars, the tires picked up dry leaves and grass on the pavement.

There are some good points, once you get them rolling they do stay rubber side down, even on twisting and turning 7-10% descents. I had a lot of confidence taking 35MPH pavement downhills knowing my lint-roller Cinturatos would stick, but I also could feel the tires literally slowing me down on these downhill runs. They also show very little sign of wear for 100 miles, so I guess that's a good thing?

Pirelli says this is their go anywhere tire and I'm hard pressed to figure out where I could go with these. They're too smooth for anything but hero gravel, they're too sluggish on pavement, even at the widest 35mm they're too narrow for any off-road racing of any kind, and they're too dead feeling for anyone who likes to ride. The best I can figure is this is a practice tire, possibly in the same idea of resistance training? It might also be good for commuting, I would think these turtle-shell tires could deflect glass and nails all day.

Having run them with and without tubes, I'd probably suggest inner-tubes. They seem to not seal well tubeless and had to clean up a small puddle in my hotel room the night before the event. I also wouldn't run them low pressure, as a larger contact patch would only mean more drag as you pedal. Probably a good commuter tire, but definitely not a racing, gravel or adventure tire like Pirelli claims. Not unless you like to spend 25% of your energy fighting friction.

Don't use with Mavic rims

I've used Mavic wheels for years. My current wheels are Mavic Ksyrium SL CL Disc Tubeless Road Wheels. I've always used Continental 5000 TL tubeless and Mavic tubeless tires. When I saw that Pirelli was getting into bike tires, I jumped on the chance to use their tubeless tires. Tried to mount them and couldn't set them with my floor pump. Many reviews have said this, that a compressor is needed. Took the wheels to my local bike shop and they also could not set the tires. Kept leaking after multiple tries. My key mechanic strongly advised that I not try to ride with the Pirellis. So I switched to the new Continental tubeless 5000 S TR tires. Amazing tires, better than the TRs. Yes, still hard to mount but worth the effort. In sum, I think the Pirellis are not compatible with Mavic rims. In any case, try the new Continentals.

The terrible roads around my home are a minefield of debris for cyclists. I switched to these tires for the added grip and puncture protection. I've been very satisfied so far. The Cinturato feels a little slow. But worry free riding is worth the speed trade-off to me.

Strongly recommended for campagnolo wheel owners. They were very easy to mount, and seated properly on the first try. I felt the stated tire pressure was too high. I found running slightly lower pressure felt better. I'm 140-lbs

The Pirelli Cinturato Velo 700c Road Tire was fatter than the typical 700c x 28mm from other similar tires. The tire felt heavy during acceleration in my estimation. The clearance fork in my road bike was similar to a 32 mm tire

Pirelli Cinturato Velo TLR tires are what I consider the first performance all-season tubeless tire out of the Hutchinson factory. Thats right, these are made for Pirelli (with their own rubber compound) in France by Hutchinson. Other tires out of that factory include, but are not limited to Zipp Tangente Speed RT25RT28, Mavic Yksion Pro UST, and of course Hutchinsons own Fusion 5 11Storm line. They are all similar and very good.

Pay no attention to 1-star review stating these dont hold air. Yes, without sealant most tubeless tire and rim combinations will see slow leaks out tiny gaps between the tire bead and rim bead hook. With 40mL of Orange Seal and a few fast spins to get enough centripetal force to coat the tire, these tires are holding air as well as any tubeless-ready tire would...between 2-3psi of air loss a day at typical tire pressures.

While the other tires I mentioned are similar, the Cinturatos are definitely a little beefier. They are much stiffer tires to manipulate by hand than because they are the only tire with a real puncture belt beneath the tread layer. I weighed a 28mm tire at 338g...the claimed weight is 350g. On a wide 21mm Zipp NSW, the 28mm tire actually measures 29.5-30.5mm depending on tire pressure,

Ride quality is good for an all-season tire with puncture protection down the center. The Cinturatos do not have extra sidewall protection, but tubeless sidewalls are generally pretty tough already.

This tire has been fantastic so far. I have about 600 miles on them and they are not showing wear and have held up great. By far the easiest tubeless tire that I have put on. Went on easy and aired up with my compessor easy as well. I did not have any scratching of my wheel decals or rim tape when installing them like Conti's and they held air as well as any tubeless tire I have used. They roll great and seem as though they stick to the road well especially in the turns. Overall a great tire.

This is an excellent tubeless tire. It comes in a 700 x 26 size. It rides fast and last a good while. I presently have about 2800 miles on them. I credit the ride comfort to 26 ml width. I also ride 700 x 25 Cont Grand Prix 5000 TL. The Cont is a bit heavier, last longer. Both are good options for tubeless, so I generally by in pairs whatever is on sale. To make a general comparison is the Pirelli rides like a Mercedes and the Cont rides like a BMW.
