The Italian Tire Giant Conquers The Road Again
Introducing the Pirelli PZero Road Tire, the best all-around tire in its class. After years of experience constructing rubber tech for the motorsport industry, Pirelli has mastered the craft of bicycle tires.
The PZero Road has been specifically developed as a training tire for the fastest racers at the World Tour level. Pirelli designed this new tube-type tire with EVO compound and TechBELT casing technology to give great puncture protection, reliability, and comfort, while still remaining lightweight.
The tread pattern of PZero Road features the iconic lightning pattern from the PZero family. It retains grip around corners but rolls fast on straight roads. The additional siping in the tires allows the tire to shed water in wet conditions.
The EVO Compound is a high-tech formulation that provides excellent grip and low rolling resistance, while also offering a great balance of durability.
TechBELT casing technology is a tube-type carcass that was developed to provide puncture protection in a wide variety of conditions. It has a light yet flexible casing structure with an added layer of high-cut resistant fabric.
- EVO Compound for added grip
- TechBELT casing technology for added puncture protection
- Supple 127 Threads Per Inch (TPI) casing
- Grippy, but fast rolling all-around tread pattern
- Weights: 215g (24c) 235g (26c) 255g (28c)

Bought a pair of the PZeros to try out for the summer riding season, and I can say that theyï¿½re now a new favorite tires. There was an immediate and noticeable difference in ride quality and comfort from the very first ride on them.
Great ride feel, great handling tire. Most comfortable tire I've ever ridden (vs. Vredestein, Conti 4000, 5000 and Gatorskins). On sale, they're a great deal. At full retail (> $60, not so much).
I switched from Conti GP 5000's to these (and then to the 4S for the California "winter"). I really like the way they ride, but I am often disappointed at the durability of this tire. Granted, at 200lbs, I put a lot of weight on this tire and a decent amount of power down. But, they seem to get nicked and cut far more often than Conti 5000s.
If you're looking for great feel, these tires are the best. If you're looking for something that will last a long time on less than perfect (no debris, smooth surface) roads, these are not the tires for you.
I have ridden alot of tires over the years, the PZero is an incredible tire. Its a training tire that doesn't perform or feel like one. Very smooth over rough pavement, no cuts over the past few months and grip for days. Well worth the price. In my opinion it out performs the Gatorskin and Rubino Pro.
I made the move to the Pirelli PZero from Conti 5000's. The Conti's were a really bad match for the Roval wheelset that came with my new Aethos (love that bike by the way). Changing a flat with the Conti's was a 12 - 14 minute process because it was so difficult to get the bead of the tire over the rim to pull out the flat tube. It is still tricky with the Pirelli's, but overall a much easier fit and fixing a flat is back to a 6 - 8 minutes process. In terms of ride, the Pirelli's are really comfortable and with about 400 miles on them so far they seem to have about the same puncture protection as the Conti's (just one flat but it was a large piece of glass).
Pirelli PZero tires have performed beyond my expectations. They perform well in all conditions. Great road grip. Tires wear great and have been puncture resistant. Highly recommend these tires
Got rid of my Conti tires b/c I can change these without any tools! What a pleasant experience! Last set lasted almost 5k miles. I keep about 90 psi and they're pretty comfortable and about average for flats-our roads have lots of stickers, micro-thorns and debris. This is my second set and plan to keep using PZero's.
seems to roll up faster and longer, so far i'm very happy but at this point i have less then a thousand miles on them. I got them to replace conti 5000 that seem to wear pretty quick in the city hopefully i'll get a few more miles out of the Pirellis
Easy mounting tire and good road feel. I've been using them on D/Ace wheels at ~90psi and have good grip in the wet (NorCal winter) & dry. Comfortable riding, maybe not as supple as the Pirelli Velo 4S, but close enough and more than fine for training tires. Picked up a few small rock/glass cuts (normal) but no flats, so nothing to note there as of yet. Wear seems reasonable. Good value for the $, IMO. Happy riding!
