Anyone know if Vittoria plans on producing a Corsa G+ in tubeless ready (non-Speed version)? I like my clincher Corsa G+ a lot, and I'd like to run them tubeless, but the Corsa Speeds seem like they'd be too fragile to be a training tire.

And for a rear tire the tread lasts 700mi while my Corsa G+ tread was bald down the center after 1300mi and started to puncture constantly. Neither tire has good tread life, but the Corsa Speeds would be ridiculous for an every day tire.

No, not quite. I'm hoping for a regular Corsa G+ (not the Speed version) in TLR (TLR= TubeLess Ready).

On my Corsa G+ 25mm clinchers i have in this moment 3300 km, and still holding very well. Next week should have like 4000 km. Tub version (rear one), lasted 1850 km

We must ride very different terrains and intensities. My typical weekly distance is around 200mi/320km and 20000ft/6100m elevation. I do not employ my rear brake all that much on descents and never skid / flat-spot my tires. After 1200mi, the center rib on my Corsa G+ was completely gone (making it look more like a Corsa Speed.) I put started getting cuts down the middle and repeatedly flatting.

I weigh 135lbs/61kg and my FTP is a modest 265W. California roads are a bit rough, so there is that.

Sounds like what you really want is a rubino g+ TLR? This is a race tire.

No, the regular Corsa G+ isn't a race tire; just a very supple 320 TPI tire that can be used For both training or racing. The Corsa Speed has no flat protection, whereas the Corsa G+ is relatively durable for such a soft tire. I just want it in TLR.

4.3 watts/kg? Me thinks you are being a tad too modest!

My typical weekly distance in last 4 weeks: 323 KM per week

Weekly elevation: min 2000m, up to 6000 m

I never skid, but have to brake a lot on descents (cars, peoples, animals..)

WMy weight is 74 kg, and dont know my FTP (dont have a Power Meter). Also very bad roads.. My previos tires (Continental Attack/Force), while front one was ok, rear one lasted 1500 km (three pairs same problem).

Maybe im just lucky with this tres.. In same time not lucky with their Tub version (only 1830 km for rear one, and big cut which can not be fixed..)
