Designed to be fast enough for the summer, yet tough enough for the winter

The first weeks of spring might strike as a bit of an odd time to bring out some hard wearing and puncture resistant rubber. But then again, the new Pirelli P Zero Race 4S is billed as a four-season tyre – which includes spring and summer, as I’m sure you’re aware. 

The P Zero Race 4S is taking up the mantle from the Zero Velo 4S, a tyre which impressed us with its grip, rolling speed and puncture resistance. To build on this already high bar, Pirelli’s engineers have employed a new “SmartEVO” proprietary compound, with a view to further enhancing those qualities.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
