Four years after the launch of the original P Zero Velo, the clincher that marked the Italian company’s return to cycling, Pirelli has unveiled a new range of clincher tyres that will replace the current one.

There are two tyres in the new range: the Pirelli P Zero Race, which the brand says is designed for pure performance, and the P Zero Road, which is an all-round clincher more oriented towards durability. The 4S and TT versions of the original P Zero Velo are not continuing, with Pirelli appearing to have assimilated those tyres’ particular characteristics into the two new ones.
