Pirelli Cinturato

It's been less than a year since Pirelli launched its way back into the cycling market with the Pirelli P Zero Velo range, which included two other tyres in the 4S and TT. The well known tyre brand came in with heaps of cycling nostalgia and tyre making expeierence dating back to 1909, not only on two wheels but four as well.

The Italian outfit has now added to its ever growing range with a new tubeless ready tyre called the Cinturato. The name was used previously for racing tyres back in the 1960's with a 'radical wrap-around tyre structure' and at the time was hailed 'extraordinary' by five time F1 World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio.
