They relatively new but I wanted your opinion especially compared to the other top contender GP5000/Pro one/ Specialize turbo cotton.
Do they still have the "unique feel" of the vittoria graphene, whatever that means, just that it looks like im gonna spend a bit so might spend it on something that will "truely" feel different.

I ride during winter as well including inside London which virtually always wet at some point in the day.

I have some Ypsion ust lite (that came with the wheel), which I found have no grip at all in the wet...

Corsa control g2 tlr is a decent hard wearing tyre. The only other tyre that compares is the IRC formula.pro x guard or the RBCC tyre.

I have not tried the corsa as it winter.

I'm up in suffolk so we get shitty mud covered lanes. The tures I mention above feel very similar comfortable yet grippy in the wet. I was not that impressed with the conti tyre (it wore out too quickly and felt odd) and I wont use the pro one again. Never tried the specialised tyres but since they are made by a certain japanese company uses there wonderful rubber I'm not sure I need too.

thanks

I heard the GP 5000 is actually a relatively hard piece of rubber to ride.
I'm wondering whether the Corsa control G2 still retains that "plush" feel and the sound it makes make when you turn due to the pattern of the corsa that everyone talks about.

Because I feel the other GP5000/pro one/turbo cotton will feels exactly the same as the Mavis.

But the vittoria is the only one where everyone seem to agrees that they ride "different", might be complete bs too I dont know im asking (never rode one) :mrgreen:

Both are great. The better feeling is well worth the 1 or 2 watts higher rolling resistance.

I've never known Conti to ride terribly well. Both of the Vittorias have been a nightmare for me to get seated on the 4 wheels I've run them on. They go on the wheel easy - but maybe TOO easy. I dont have confidence they'll hold a bead if I'm on the road and a tire goes totally flat. And that would suck.

That said, they have decent comfort. Not my favorite grip. New Schwalbe Pro One probably DOES ride as good as a tubular. New Specialized Rapidair I'd argue are among the best riding tires I've ridden. Very reminiscent of Turbo Cotton

I ha e the corsa controls on pacenti rims and they stay seated without air. They are noisy though but feel fi e
I would not say they feel plush like the pave did but the tlr casing is a lower tpi affair.

However if it plush you want get some dugast strada cotton 27mm tubulars. Those tyres refine plush.

With just over 2 months to go until the Paris Roubaix challenge, I am looking to get my tyres for this years event. Currently using 32mm Hutchinson sectors on my winter wheels. As good as they have been, zero punctures and comfortable, I do not trust there grip for damp pavé.

I would of considered the IRC formula x guards, but they are not available bigger than 28mm, and it is said to be true to size and I want to get the biggest tyre I can fit. So I am now considering the Control G2 tlr. My wheels for the event are 20mm internal and I want a tyre that will measure 30mm, 32mm max when mounted. What size should I buy, I am guessing the 28 should come out close to this, anyone out there can confirm? Thanks.

My 30mm Corsa Control G2.0 TLRs measure 31mm on 21mm internal rims.

Thanks Tobin, is that after a good bit of usage, or after initial mounting?

Took some calipers to my tires. My front tire was mounted last May and it now measures 31.3-31.6mm at 60psi. My rear tire was mounted at the end of December and currently measures 30.2-30.5mm at 60psi.

Wheels are Zipp 202 NSW Disc. 21mm internal, 28.9mm external.
