Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire
When sheer speed coupled with an incredibly supple ride is what you're after in a road tire then the choice is crystal clear: the Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS. Vittoria created an innovative slick design with 15% roughness centrally for minimum rolling resistance coupled with 30% roughness at the edges for enhanced cornering. The Kevlar SiO2 3D tread compound is engineered for incredibly low rolling resistance while the 290 TPI Corespun K casing combines polycotton and Kevlar threads to optimize suppleness as well as resistance to cuts and tears. Light and fast, the Open Corsa Evo KS tires add a dash of speed to any road bike.
  • Kevlar SiO2 3D Compound with silica delivers super-low rolling resistance and enhances grip in wet conditions
  • Corespun K 290 TPI casing uses mixed polycotton and Kevlar threads to provide an incredibly supple ride as well as resisting cuts and punctures
  • Twin Thread design places hard tread in the center where wear occurs and uses a softer compound on the shoulders for enhanced grip
  • Folding bead helps shave grams
  • Weight: 230g (700x23)
  • Max PSI: 145

    Comments about Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire:

    See my prior reviews below. The tire is now on sale, and given the perspective of time, I would not recommend this tire, even at a very cheap price. I have ridden extensively on the Diamante Pros, and love them. But this tire is terrible. Maybe I got a bad pair. But they are squirrely on the road, track poorly, corner tentatively, in a word, inspire no confidence. Yes, they wear well. Vittoria builds good tires. But these are a 'miss'.

        Comments about Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire:

        Tried these for 2500 miles--wrote two reviews. Just switched back to Diamante Pros, and what a positive difference! The Evo Corsa KS may be great in the hands of an experienced racer on the flat, but screaming down hills at 45 mph is not its thing. It inspires no confidence. The Diamante tracks true, and makes you want to head for that next hairpin even faster. Used same size (23s) on same rim on same bike. Corsa KS weighs 244g, the Diamante 185. Never thought to check before, but the Diamantes ride better, descend far better, and they just last and last...

        Very fast tire

            Comments about Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire:

            This confirms and adds to my review above. I've put 2k miles on the KS tires. Pros: very light, comfortable, fast spin-up, great road feel. Excellent puncture resistance. Good in the wet. Cons: this is a tire for experienced riders. At speeds above 35 mph it tracks poorly, is sensitive to winds (head or side). At speeds above 40 it can be quite a handful. I have Easton wheels and 23/700 tires. A stiffer wheel might reduce the feeling of the tire steering the bike. After 2K miles I am changing back to my Diamantes for greater downhill security at speed.

              Comments about Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire:

              I will start my review by stating that I've only put roughly 150 miles on these tires so far, so I will come back and change my rating if need be. I was looking for a set of affordable tires that would be durable, yet quick, and so far these have fit the bill perfectly. I've went on separate rides of 50 miles and 40 miles, and have yet to have a flat. I am 5'10", 180lbs, and ride at 120 PSI because these tires require more pressure than the Hutchinson Equinox tires I previously had. The ride is very smooth, and I haven't noticed any cuts or punctures in the tires.

                Comments about Vittoria Open Corsa Evo KS Road Tire:

                I put almost 4000 miles on a set of Diamantes and bot the EVO KS to replace them. The ride is more "immediate", less pillowy, sharper road feel, than the Diamantes. Watch that you get the tire you want, though. Open Corsas come as KS, KX, CS and CX. This tire is described as "clincher" but on the carton it says "open tubular". Is that Vittoria's way of saying race-level clincher? I found it confusing, as did the Nashbar rep I first spoke with. When I reached someone who did know, they were most helpful. This is a thinner, lighter tire than the Diamante, and I wonder if it will last as long...

                      I've been racing and training exclusively on Continental tires for over 20 years, but since these were on sale I decided to give them a go. I paired them up with some latex tubes and I could absolutely feel the difference in the ride of my bike right out of the driveway. Don't appear to be as durable as the Conti GPs, but after 200 miles on these, I decided I much rather ride a bike that has an improved feel even if they don't last as long. Ended up purchasing a spare set.
