Over a century of know-how in the racing world is finally available to those who ride to race themselves. With P Zero™ Velo, cycling performance now meets the reliability, the road handling and the grip of Pirelli. Because the performance of a tyre is also yours.
Discover the new standard of cycling tyre excellence, available in three different clincher tyre models.
Years of top-level racing expertise deliver their crowning jewel: the P Zero™ Velo sets a new standard in bicycle clincher performance. At its core, the patented Pirelli SmartNET Silica®: enjoy superior grip in both dry and wet conditions, as well as unparalleled puncture resistance and mileage. Impossible? Not anymore.
SmartNET Silica® is Pirelli’s patented cutting edge compound. With its unique formula, developed through years of leading experience in motorsports, SmartNET Silica® provides cyclists with a truly uncompromising experience
Thanks to SmartNET Silica®, cyclists has no more compromise: low rolling resistance and enhanced wet grip, grip and mileage, puncture resistance and low weight.
This groundbreaking Pirelli compound excels in every performance.
This unique silica particles, long-shaped instead of spheric, are able to position themselves in an organized logitudinal way instead of in a chaotic structure, ensuring low rolling resistance. They provide perfect chemical compatibility with wet tarmac, increasing wet grip. They create a NETwork with other compound elements increasing compound resistance and improving both puncture resistance and mileage.
The application of SmartNET Silica® will allow cyclists to enjoy unparalleled performance.
FGD – Functional Groove Design
To fine-tune the tread pattern of P Zero Velo and P Zero Velo 4S (the TT model is 100% slick), Pirelli relied on the motorsport-inspired FGD technology (Functional Groove Design). The tread pattern, which does not have only an aesthetic function, takes inspiration from one of Pirelli’s best SSP tyre (SuperSport class of the World SuperBike racing competition): Diablo Supercorsa.
Tread pattern angles, depths and distances were researched to maximize performance in terms of water outflow, dry and wet grip, mileage, tyre response as well as comfort and handling. The tread pattern recalls a flash and features extremely tight angles down the middle area with a definite lateral opening so as to facilitate water drainage, smoothness and even the tyre usage. Moreover, the tread pattern has been designed to be progressively deeper to enhance resilience and give the tyre great reactiveness and response even on extreme bends.
The position of the pattern creates a different number of contact points between the tread and the ground. P Zero™ Velo has three major footprint areas: a central slick ribbon, for high tyre smoothness, two extra-grooved intermediate bands, which help to negotiate bends and heat the tyre, and semi-slick edges providing high tyre responsiveness at bend apex. This results in optimum contact whenever the tyre is required to supply maximum ground power transfer and safety in any set of conditions.
ICS – Ideal Contour Shaping
For the contour and construction of the new P Zero Velo tyres, Pirelli made use of ICS (Ideal Contour Shaping) technology working on the shape of the tyre contour.
The use of CAD software, along with subsequent analysis of the finite elements (FEM), helped optimize the construction parameters of the tyre contour and repeatedly simulate performance. Hence P Zero Velo provides the best and most efficient footprint conferring grip, stability as well as a reactive and controlled response to every type of surface (straights, descents or bends).
