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.
Smart Technology, Premium Performance
Pirelli technology has long set the standard in the world of motorsports. P Zero Velo brings our distinctive Italian design and engineering passion to cycling. Discover the breakthrough technologies that make these tyres absolutely unique.
Maximum performance with unprecedented rolling efficiency and full confidence. The perfect balance. SmartNET Silica® is Pirellis 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
The tread design reinvented. To give you what you need, when you need it. 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 Groove Design). The tread pattern, which does not have only an aesthetic function, takes inspiration from one of Pirellis 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 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 ribbon, for high tyre smoothness, two extra-grooved intermediate bands, which help to negotiate bends and heat the tyre, and semi-slick edges responsiveness at bend apex. This results in optimum contact whenever the tyre is required to supply maximum ground power transfer conditions.
ICS IDEAL CONTOUR SHAPING
Enhanced handling and cornering in all conditions thanks to the unique tyre profile. 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 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).
