Pirelli has an established history in cycling, supplying tires
for legends of the sport, such as Fausto Coppi. More recently they’ve been
ridden to victory, on numerous occasions, by modern-great Tadej Pogačar. After a
period focusing on their motoring business, the Italian brand returned to producing
rubber for bi-pedal machines in 2017. Initially launching only the P Zero Velo,
a high-performance racing tire, they have since expanded their range to MTB and
gravel. Discover today a range of tires shaped by over a century’s worth of
experience in manufacturing high-performance tires.
From Hero To P Zero
Sharing its name with the company’s high-performance motor racing
tire, and framing the wheels of some of the top racers of the WorldTour, it’s
clear that this a tire for fast road riding. By combining the best rubber
compounds and the latest manufacturing techniques, the company have produced a quality
product that’ll boost performance in both straight line speed and cornering.
Marking Pirelli’s return to the world of cycling, this was
always a tire intended to make a big impact. Since P Zero’s introduction to the
sport, the company has worked with WorldTour teams to continually refine its
development, making it lighter and reducing rolling resistance. This top-tier race
tire is also produced in the company’s state-of-the-art in Italy.
Tires For All Occasions
But it’s not all about the fastest tires for WorldTour
victories. Pirelli’s innovative approach has been applied to a range of disciplines
and rider needs. Its P7 Sport, for instance, is an all-rounder that is more
robust and durable, ideal for big training days. Or if it’s grip you need for training
and racing in loose conditions, be it wet mud or dry sand, look no further than
the company’s Scorpion range.

tires to suit different riding styles and disciplines. So, if you want a pair
