Purebred heritage.

Drawing on their years of top-level Formula 1 racing experience, the Pirelli Pzero Velo Tire marks the 145-year-old company's re-entry into the market after a 25 year absence. Bringing in a brand new compound, the Pzero's SmartNET Silica® compound features a highly elastic structure that minimizes heat generation, offering lower rolling resistance and natural puncture protection. Bringing their Functional Groove Design from the world of motorsports, the Pzero features three major areas that optimize grip and responsiveness in wet or dry conditions. Under the 127 TPI nylon casing, the aramid fiber breaker layer adds further puncture and slashing protection for reliable performance in unreliable conditions.

The Pirelli Pzero Velo tire is available in two widths: 23mm and 25mm. Also available in an extra-protective 4 seasons version.


  • Formula 1 heritage and technology in a cycling tire.
  • SmartNET Silica® compound provides low rolling resistance, wet grip, and puncture protection.
  • Functional Groove Designed tread pattern features three major areas for optimal grip and efficiency.
  • Ideal Contour Shaping of the tire uses CAD software to develop the most efficient footprint.
  • Claimed weight: 210 grams (25mm.

a very pleasant surprise by pirelli
by team woo

i was somewhat skeptical hearing about pirelli's tires, since they had been putting clement tires. clement tires are durable, but the ride is a bit rough. having ridden vittoria's pave series for years, i was rather picky about my tires and had stuck to 320 tpi and cotton belts. for off season, i went to a cheaper tire, the rubino pro. a good tire and value. i was stunned with the pirelli's. 128 tpi, puncture resistance, but it was the grippiness and the handling in water that wow'ed me. it gives a good ride and handles well. i switched my other race bike over to pirelli's as well.

My new favorite tire
by Anonymous

I have these tires on two sets of wheels and absolutely love them. I switched to these after using Continental GP 4000, a Bontrager tire, and Michelin Power. They feel much more grippy in corners than any of the other tires, and seem to roll very well at 100-110 psi.

Comfortable and grippy
by Anonymous

A very comfortable tire that corners well. 25 mm plumped to 27.5 on narrow Ksyrium rims. Wet pavement performance is very good. After a few hundred miles, the rear shows wear and cuts (not punctures) on tires center. Sidewalls are unscathed. Debris seems to cling to the sticky tread, but no flats so far.

Pirelli is back!!!!

I have been riding this tire for about 4 months. Very happy with the ride quality so far. Not the same roll resistance as Vittoria Corsa G tires but the tire does not flat like Vittoria's do. I like the feel better than Continental Gran Prix 4000. Lighter tire better handling on dry and wet conditions. Now running latex tubes in the Pirelli's even made it a better tire. No flats so far. Replacing the tires after about 3000 miles hit a tin can on a ride last week and cut the rear tire but it did not flat. Highly recommend.

Grippy rubber, feel responsive and fast
by Anonymous

This tire seems like it would perform well for any condition other than winter weather when something with more of a tread is needed. The rubber compound has a soft and grippy feel which just from touching them you can tell they would be less likely to slip out from under you in a corner than many comparable tires. I don't have a means to test actual rolling resistance, but they feel amazing to ride on. I have used them mostly on climbing wheels for mountain riding, where they seem to leave no watts behind on the uphills but grip amazingly going down. These will be racing tires next summer.

Good early effort

This tire provides excellent cornering grip and will be my go-to tire for crits. Durability seems good too. However, I think the rolling resistance might not be on par with some of the other racing tires available out there.
