I just got my 700x25mm GP5000S-TR's mounted and set up tubeless. They measure 25.75mm mounted on 21mm internal width Bontrager XXX 4 wheels. I'm sure they'll stretch some but it fits the 105% rule nicely right now. Weights were 250g and 249g so pretty much right on spec.

Wet grip on these is not great. Had so many slips on the rear yesterday. S**t my pants a few times, but thankfully stayed upright.

Vittoria Corsa TLR really have set a benchmark for grip, in my eyes.

How do they compare in the wet to regular GP5000's? I've been using GP5000's on both my bikes but just changed my "dry weather" bike over to GP5000S-TR's.

Vittoria Corsa might be perfect for Richmond Park, but unfortunately in the North Wessex downs they disintegrate...

I find the GP5000 TL 32 a great fast winter tyre and the Pirelli Cinturato in 32 or 35 a great bomb proof/ worst conditions tyre..

Although will be trying the Rene Hersh 48mm 650b slicks shortly to see how they are (in the endurance casing)

Funny since I've used them in Leyburn winters, 1,660km LEJOG and all over Maui's volcanic paths. Maybe my slender 85kg physique is kind to them ;)

You should take a trip down and see how 'meticulous' our Surrey lanes are ATM. Road surfaces resembling the Grand Canyon.

And impossible to find. Been months since there was any decent availability.

Also I am very open to be converted! Loved the ride and grip of mine when I had them but they didn't last long at all.. I used them 3 years ago.. have they changed the compound since then? Also my coach used them two years ago and had two tyres delaminate on him..

Madison had stock for a couple of months, but just sold old out. Big drop coming in March of all Corsa lines (Speeds, TLR2.0 and Controls).

Funny how, in my opinion, the Corsa TLR2.0 is one of the best tyres on the market, yet their clincher / tubed version, I rate as one of the worse.

Stock of the Corsa tlr 25mm is available on eBay uk:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154818659142 ... SwP4lh5BXz

Good tyres, can't compete with gp5000s tr on weight, but as Ryan says the grip is awesome.

care to explain? I love the Control tlr and wonder why the clincher version is bad.

Corsa clincher 30s are impossible here. One lasted 11km before getting torn by glass. Another 25km.

Are corsa or corsa control TLR versions any more durable, or just as flimsy?

There is a rubber coating on the outside that does a surprisingly good job of protecting against random deflections. The most likely section of the tire to get cut is the very shoulder of the tread if you run over something tall/large.
