Vittoria is celebrating its victorious past year by introducing a limited-edition version tyre - the Corsa PRO Gold - based on the cotton Corsa PRO tyre released earlier this year. The special edition tyre comes adorned with golden sidewalls (well that's how the Italian brand is describing them, anyway) and a pack will set you back 299 euros/around 257 British pounds.
There will be 2,023 packs of the Corsa PRO Gold available globally, with each gold-coloured pack containing a pair of tyres. This means that only a small number of people will secure a set, and possibly even fewer can justify the price. Hand-numbered and featuring a serial number on the inner side, each double-pack of Corsa PRO Gold Limited Edition is priced at €299.
The Corsa PRO Gold Limited Edition is made exclusively in the tubeless-ready version, and in one 700x28c size. Its 320 TPI cotton casing promises suppleness, flexibility, and comfort, while the Graphene + Silica compound focuses on speed, durability and grip.
The Gold tyres are a celebration of the dozens of victories that Vittoria-sponsored riders have chalked up this year in prestigious races like Milano-Sanremo, Paris-Roubaix, Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, La Vuelta, and the Road World Championships in 2023. In total, the Corsa PRO tyres (or the riders who were using them, to be more precise) clinched 59 tour stages and 14 one-day races, and contributed to eight General Classification wins.
Are these tyres on your money-no-object Christmas list this year? If you know a generous person willing to get you a pair, or just want to indulge yourself with some sort-of gold tyres to impress your mates in the new year, head over to Vittoria's website and hope you get there before 2,023 other well-heeled cyclists...
