Well sort of still using new tread, but they say it's got more grip than "other" CORSA tires..

Also from the looks of things there is going to be a proper black option.

According to Vittoria's graph, you can get more mileage from Corsa Control open 25mm in tan sidewalls than black/antracyt :)
Must be a glitch.

So what is the difference between Corsa and Corsa Control?
10-15g more rubber, that is still less than the weight variation of Corsa G+, I was getting ( open 25mm antracyt, 237g, 260g).
I thought Corsa G was kind of Pave's successor.

Have put about 500km on my set of Corsa Controls. The black sidewalls looks great. 25c on 17c inner width rims come to 26.5-27mm. A tiny bit stiffer ride than the Corsa G+, but less of the sound the tread on the original makes which suits me fine. Probably due to the slightly different tread pattern on the shoulders of the new tyre. Tyres seems tough enough with no punctures or cuts yet. Grip is excellent. They don’t feel appreciably slower than the Corsa G+ or any tyres in that class, so rolling resistance (if it even matters) must be decent, unlike say a Rubino which feels a bit sluggish. If you can get them for a good price, give them a try. Otherwise, to me these ride almost exactly like the Schwalbe One V-Guard in the same width which I was also fortunate to get good mileage from with few cuts or punctures.
