A Vittoria rep told me that they are going to have a major launch later this month but he refused to tell me anything about what was coming out. Has anyone heard anything about this? any theories on what it may be?

I hope it is a new updated corsa that is tubeless compatible for all models (control, normal, and speed) and maybe also a new tubeless rubino pro.

It's already been leaked in this 2019 catalog.

The existing Corsa Speed TLR comes in 23mm. What other tubeless tires come in 23mm, Pro Ones are the only one I can think of that are remotely popular.

Awesome news. Finally a good selection of top performing tubeless tyres overall. First Conti and now Vittoria. :)

But you are aware that Conti tlr is very different from clincher version?

I am not sure that's the case. Our site has also been invited to the media meeting which is a few days long. It's supposed to be a big new tech? If it were only just TLR I would surely be disappointed. We have no idea what they are launching whatsoever but they said one of the big break through as much as the Corsa G+

Knight Composites hinted at some kind of big tubeless news on IG this week. Not sure if it’s related or not.

Hopefully removing the grooves from the Corsa tires that grab debris and cause flats.

So place your bets.....for me I think the GP5000 will be significantly faster than the tubeless Corsa G+.
It's a shame we haven't an objective way to measure grip or puncture resistance.

I love that the rr kings, conti and vittoria, are duking it out.

We get to enjoy technological leaps... :)

The harder vittora's comeback is, the better.

I gave had the new Vittoria tubeless tyres on back order in Christmas.

My prediction is the Corsa will wear quickly like the conti tl tyre is for men the Corsa control and rubino though might be good tyres.

Dropping a few models from the mountain lineup - no more Goma or Jafaki. Martello and Morsa get 2.6 and 2.8 sizes.

I think this means an agreed tubeless standard for road tyres has been formalised as hinted by Continental when they launched the GP5000

spot on. the angry asian mentioned it during a podcast. i hope Vittoria have developed manufacturing tech to mass produce AFFORDABLE tubeless tires.
