Winning World Tour races takes preparation and the best equipment available on the market, official racing teams always push us to do our best to improve. P ZERO™ Race Tub SL is the result of the endless process of research and development, a racing tubular that has the same speed and handling performances of his predecessor, just lighter.
We obtained the same performances offered by a standard latex tube at a record-breaking weight using an innovative inner tube, giving our athletes an unexpected advantage.
"The new tubulars feel fast and handle like the old ones but now they are lighter, you feel that in the climbs." - Esteban Chaves, Team Bike Exchange
P ZERO™ Race Tub SL sets a new standard for racing tubulars, both for World Tour athletes and amateurs.
Inner Tube: The revolution of the tubular starts from the inside: the inner tube. We replaced the standard latex with the TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a cutting-edge material that blends the same qualities of speed and puncture protection of the latex with a significant weight reduction.
Compound: P ZERO™ Race Tub SL features the SmartEVO compound, a high performance rubber blend that has been specifically developed to maximize handling and grip performance on both dry and wet roads, without compromising rolling resistance. This special compound was created for competitions where grip and handling need to complement speed and cornering precision.
Carcass: P ZERO™ Race Tub SL is built on a fine 320tpi Corespun casing reinforced with aramid fibers for added puncture protection while delivering comfort and sharp handling. The dimension of the casing has been tested and developed for wide modern tubular rims.
Tread: P ZERO™ Race Tub SL tread and profile are designed taking advantage of Pirelli’s extensive motorsport experience: the lightning bolt pattern design features narrow angles at the center of the footprint to promote regular wear and progressive feedback, while the wider lateral angles provide solid behavior and responsiveness at the end of the lean. The design offers a constant and coherent feeling while leaning in high speed corners. Thanks to the YellowSoft compound, the ICS and FGD technologies and the tread design you will have a cycling experience never seen before.
