Odd, your tires have label on the tread ?
Guess that's a tub thing
I think clinchers got label on the side and tubs on the tread.

Look this guys

Vittoria Corsa Graphene 2.0 Tubeless has lowest rolling resistance of all tires on test

Anyone tested it in real life?

i have problems with corsa TLR 25mm... very hard to seat the bead on Zipp NSW
even i already used compressor pump, still no result

The glued on tread keeps the tire pretty flat around the rim. Squeeze the tire around the valve so it takes a rounder shape while also pressing the bead down to get rid of air gaps around the tubeless valve “bung.”
I have tried that but still it has air gap on other areas. Its like zipp’s rim hook is too small
Try to press tire on presta valve zone.

Other option is that you use gluing tape and glue tire to the rim - press it further down to prevent air leak. I did that for Vittoria Corsa Speed 1.0 Tubeless and it worked. I pumped them with regular pump without compressor. It was pain in the ass but I succeeded at the end.

They are great tires to ride. So smooth and fast low rolling resistance tires. I just wonder how long they will last. I already used them for like 600 km , no problems at all for now.

They're the Speed model (TT specific, zero puncture protection, no grip). Unusable for general riding.

I've been running Corsas Graphene 2.0 tubeless for a while now. I really like the grip the tires provided in both dry and wet. I've even raced over wet cobbles and the tires performed really well. They feel fast but I haven't tried the new GP5000s yet.

The pictures are the tires after 4150 km (2751 mi) front and 3075km (1911mi) rear. I've been impressed with the wear of the front one but the rear one looks a bit eaten up. I weigh 85kg though and the tires have been ridden hard in races and training rides. I live in central Virginia though with over half of the roads in pristine condition, so I'm not sure if the durability can be fully tested here.

Just my two cents on them!

If you get 6k kms out of them they already pay for themselves. My specialized turbo cotton look dead after 3.5k kms.

This is good durability. I too was amazed at the wet traction. I don't agree with the criticisms of the life of these tires. It's a high performing race tire and which means expectations of tread life should be relatively modest. That traction comes at a price.

I never really expect more than low-2000 mile range out of a rear mounted race tire. 62kg/137lbs, fast groups/races, hills, bad California chip seal and slurry seal. My gen1 Corsa G+ only lasted about 1300mi before the center ribbing disappeared and glass started cutting through the casing.

Looking for feedback on Corsa Control TLR 2.0
Thinking of replacing Schwalbe G-One speeds on training wheels. Shwalbes are bombproof, but not the carpet feel tyres. Hope Corsas 320 TPI will do better job.

Currently 1k kms with this tyres, pintched two times...Vittoria sealant (ridiculous) wasn’t able to repair the small holes.

Got home with tubes both...

Now I’m using a different type of sealant (Gist, italian product), but - honestly - bit scared all the time I ride with them.

I have always used Stans Notubes sealant, but Schwalbes seems running without the sealant just fine. No wet dots or marks on tyre.
