I think that the best protection is at least two dangerous breeds, believe me, it's proven
It's worth noting the link you provided in the description for the Vittoria Corsa NEXT tires described here @ S0mdH8t-NRY&t=8m30s 8:30 ... takes you to the NON-TUBELESS variant of the tire. It doesn't state that clearly on the [chain reaction] website.... so I got burned with buying 'em, installing them, and realizing they were the non-tubeless version. I'm a US customer and was not able to return them (to the UK); since I mounted them to my wheels. My own dumb mistake; but a word of caution to anyone else out there looking to pick these up.
Is the Vittoria Corsa NEXT TLR compatible with the Enve Foundation 45??? Don't see it on their website yet. @ S0mdH8t-NRY&t=8m09s 8:09 - you noted 'all sizes above 28mm are compatible with hookless rims' - which the Enve 45s are. Does that mean 28, 30, 32, 34 work? Or 30, 32, 34 work? (not 28)
Buy Vittoria if you only expect your tires to last a few months. They wear faster than any other tire on the market. Personally I did not like the ride feel when cornering either.
So, your shed is something like a 'bikecave'😁.
Vittoria tyres corsa they get detached. The glue is really bad I would not recommend them.
Tubular tires would be a “real” upgrade
Great content and thanks the suggestions.
My favourite tyre: the IRC Formula Pro RBCC that Malcolm Borg sells.
Dave, how does the Occam strap damage the paint of the bike? Exposed BOA straps look like a recipe for damaged pain. Also the only suspension seat post that works is the Ergon/Canyon VCLS. It flexes the whole seatpost back and forth, the seat height remaining unchanged.
I still ride tubs, call me whatever you want, but i love them
I’ve recently just bought some tubeless tyres, went with P Zero’s. I think a video comparing the latest tubeless tyres would be really good, I actually couldn’t find an up to date video where someone impartial has compared them, be good to hear your opinion 👍
Bought the non tubeless N.ext before the brr review came out. Noticeably slower than the same set up on gp5000…latex tubes. They do feel nice, better damped but who wants to give up 7-8 watts per pair for what they do well? Maybe if you do mild gravel the improved puncture resistance is worth it. As usual the marketing hype doesn’t match the reality imo. We’ll see what Brr says when they test them. I’ll go back to gp’s when these wear out.
I'd really like to see you review some Rene Herse tyres. IMHO the Juniper Ridge is the best off road tyre I've ever ridden. They're expensive, but boy do they ride nicely.
Continental all day every day for me! Best tyres by a country mile youtube.com/results?search_query=%23fact #fact
I've tried the Vittoria Corsa next 700x28 and 700x30 tubetype and the comfort is not exceptionnal, and 2,2 watts slower than gp5000.
I really wish that Vittoria made this tire STILL with a high TPI count, RESPONSIVE cotton blend casing, but with a thicker, better longevity, and a more durable tread strip, instead of going the 'dead' feeling nylon casing route like everyone else (and some of their lower line products).
(Think; Clement Campionato Del Mundo Seta tubulars from way back in the ancient times, THE perfect 'training tire'! They even had the same straight longitudinal ribbed tread pattern as the Corsa Gs do.)
Maybe I am just too spoiled by the suppleness, response, and yes SOUND of their Corsa G, 320 TPI series, especially when stuffed with their very own latex tubes.
I really don't care how much 'faster' so many on here claim the GP5000s with butyl tubes 'roll', or how many watts they supposedly save over the Corsa G series (which I do not believe at all, anyway), I will NEVER give up the ALIVE, and responsive feel of that setup, even at the cost of lower longevity. 😉
You said that the Corsa N.Ext has rolling resistance almost as low as the Corsa Speed but this is incorrect (13.2 watts v. 7.5 watts at 100psi). Perhaps you meant to compare it to the Corsa G+ 2.0?
Asgard sound like protection for your butt!
