Pirelli's previous experience and the reliability of SmartNET™ Silica technology, combined with the tubeless-ready comfort and the resistance of the Armoud Tech™ technology, facilitated the creation of a new clincher tyre with a unique DNA - perfect for long distances and various terrains: - Armour Tech™ construction combines a Nylon bead-to-bead high-density layer to an aramid breaker and aramid fibers dispersed into the tread, resulting in a new level of protection against the worst road conditions which has never been achieved before - SmartNET™ Silica rubber compound guarantees safe rides and confidence-inspiring handling even in harsh conditions - Sizes from 26-622 up to 35-622 make it ready for Granfondo riding as well as long adventures rides, all in a tube and/or tubeless-ready configuration Cinturato Velo TLR is compatible with hookless rims according to ETRTO 5bar/73psi max pressure limit
COMPOUND, CASING, TECHNOLOGIES
What's the secret to our tyres? Let's take a look at some of the motorsport-derived technologies applied to our cycling tyres
Pirelli SmartNET™ Silica technology delivers high rolling efficiency, thanks to its natural anisotropic orientation, which reduces heating while increasing elasticity, to help minimise energy dissipation. Enjoy a highly reliable wet grip. The wide surface of the silica rod molecules enhances its natural water affinity, delivering confident handling on wet. Puncture resistance and extensive mileage. Pirelli’s SmartNET™ Silica compound features microscopic rod-shaped particles, that are arranged systematically, rather than chaotically, creating a strong, long-lasting tyre.
The Armour Tech™ is a patented casing derived from the Motorsport experience of Pirelli: a unique mix of Kevlar® fibers in the compound which creates a chemical barrier against punctures together with a layer of fabric that goes from bead to bead that increases the ability to resist against penetration from every angle and an extra layer of anti-puncture fabric under the tread. The 60tpi tubeless-ready casing is specifically designed for road-endurance application, exclusively patented for Pirelli. The tubeless-ready configuration provides extra suppleness and better speed to a unique casing in its category.
