Vittoria has a history of success, with its tubulars and treads winning the greatest number of races. The Vittoria Open Corsa CX cotton tyres feature 320 TPI (threads-per-inch) to provide outstanding flexibility and lightness. The ISOgrip compound provides much more grip and safety than before.
The Vittoria Open Corsa CX is the clincher model of the world renowned and most-used tubular. It's proven to be the fastest all-round racing tyre on the market. The 320 TPI Corespun casing delivers a supple ride and outstanding handling, along with PRB 2.0 puncture resistance. - A.D.

As much as I was jazzed about these, i just had rear blow out and sidewall gone after 155 miles.Good thing they're out of stock. Sad waste of money. Two latex tubes and a tyre...50 bucks up wasted in a snap.
These are excellent clinchers. I have ridden Open Corsas for many years. With care you can get 3 or more thousand kilometers with them. Scrub some pressure and really enjoy the ride! PBK pricing makes them extreme bargain.
... all around training tire you can buy. Supple, fast enough, a pure joy to ride. Unlike other reviewers I get outstanding mileage from these. On the last set I just retired one tire had 2800 miles as a rear and 1500 as a front, the other 1500 as rear and 4500 as front. And they weren't in bad shape either, just took off as a precaution. Unlike Conti GP4000s IIs with that kind of mileage they were still round, and the ride quality is much superior.
I Just started using these in size 25 with latex tubes switching from Michelin pro4 service course. All I can say is wow! ProBikekit has a great deal on the 23’s so I just picked up another set-And a super deal on latex tubes. Performance wise my wheels spin up so fast now-An easy 2 mile per hour average increase. I usually change tires between 1500 and 2000 miles -even if they do go longer I prefer fresh tread-So at this price I can’t go wrong.
As with all the items I've purchased over the years this last order was shipped promptly, arrived in reasonable time and packaging and contents were in great shape. Absolutely no complaints! I should have bought another set of 3 tires, though, as pricing is outstanding. I'll keep opening your invitation emails as I'm in the hunt for a new set of lights, front and rear. Keep up the great work.
All-time favorite clincher tire, second to none, and at a great price.
I have been ordering from probike kit for several years and always find good pricing, good service, and good product selection. I have been using these tires for 5 years and they are good riding, stick to the pavement, provide a supple ride and can hold high pressure. The only issue I have with them is that they do wear out and I have to replace them since I frequently ride 4 or 5 times per week.
These tires (or tyres for you folks on the other side of the pond) are the ultimate in comfort and safety. Combined with Vittoria's latex inner tubes, they provide a comfortable, supple and safe ride. These tires are equally at home on long straightaways, long climbs or fast descents. Some people have complained about their alleged lack of durability. I say: nonsense. These tires last me as long, or even longer as the Michelins I previously used. Great tire, highly recommended. BTW, the price at PBK is amazing; the same tires at my LBS, are priced at twice the price. So at PBK I can buy two of these tires for the price of one tire at the LBS. I am all in favor of supporting the LBS, but at twice the price, there is no way that I would buy these tires locally--I just couldn't afford them.
I like these tires very much. I have been using them for years and get a season, or more out of a pair. I ride them on all my road bikes, including one tandem (maxed-out at 65+ mph). The color selection allows me to match with the colors of both my wife's bikes and my stable. 3 days/week we have a coasting/aero position contest on a favorite down-hill. We are always at the front of the pack and roll a good 100 yards further than the pack.
Smooth ride and puncture resistant, what more can you ask for in a tire? I have tried multiple tires, Conti's, Michelin's and others, but keep coming back to tried and true Vittoria's. The only con I can think of is they do tend to wear quicker than some of the other tires I have used, but wear mileage is about average when compared to others. I am a bit disappointed the newer version of the tire are colored on the sidewall, as opposed to the tread on the old versions, but they still look sharp. I would highly recommend these tires as a do it all training and racing tire.
A good balance of characteristics. My all-purpose go-to tire. They are best pared with latex tubes.
The tires are fast and soft to ride on. Are they faster then the Conti GP4000s.? Jury is still out on that one. Rolling resistance is very low. For the price, it's an expensive purchase because they don't last that long. If you are into TT racing on a weekend basis, these will get you through the season. The downside of these tires are that they wear very fast and cut easier then any tire I have used. Probikekit actually replaced a set that just got cut to shreds in my first few rides. The second set is holding up well but it's always in the back of my mind that if I hit any type of roc, glass, pebble, that my tires will cut or worse yet, get a flat.
I've raced on vittoria open corsa cx 23mm clinchers for many years. They are definitely not the most durable tires, but the supple feel makes up for it. I recently upgraded to a new set of wide profile carbon clinchers wheels which are designed for 25mm tires so I made the switch. They are even better than the 23s!!! great traction, stable ride, softer feel, with no sense of being slower. They inspire confidence in cornering during crits. Great on dirt, gravel, or uneven pave. If you want a set of bomb-proof tires that you can ride through broken glass in the gutters- this is not the tire for you. Many of my teammates ride Conti GP4000s. To me, they feel like wooden wagon wheels. If you want amazing road feel, with confident traction on smooth or rough pavement there is no better (IMO). Cheers!
I love these tires and PBK's price beat the rest. Thanks again.
I love these tires. I used to race on the tubular version of this tire. Loved the ride, supple and smooth. The clincher version is my favorite tire of all. They are super light and fast. You can't beat the 320pti casing for great road feel. Their lifespan seems to be about that of similar tires, but not as long as the Contis I have ridden. Given the choice though, I would rather ride the Open Corsas every time for a light fast perfect feel.
I normally run Michelin Pro4 Service Course. These tires were on sale, so I tried them out. They are smoother and more tacky. It's too early to weigh in on durability. I'd buy them again.
These tires are fast, comfortable, light and durable. The 320 tpi count makes the tire very supple and good for cornering. Using these tires with latex inner tubes is like using tubulars. Cheers!
So far so good. These tires are as close as you can get to sew-ups. . I have approx. 500 miles on them and could not be happier.
Light, roll very well, easy to install
No complaints but I only have a few hundred miles on the 2013 Vittoria Open Corsa CX Clincher Road Tyre. The delivery took a little longer than I had hoped but I do live in the states so it's understandable. I will update after 800 more miles.
