With a progressive specific design, derived from the iconic Scorpion XC RC, the Cinturato Gravel RC is the answer to all those gravel racing requirements: fast on the straights, thanks to a minimal central line knobs, and aggressive on the corners, with higher and more substantial knobs to support handling when cornering. Featuring the TechWALL tubeless casing construction, it comes with a reinforced and cut-resistant 60tpi fabric together with a bead-to-bead protection layer.
The Cinturato Gravel RC is designed for the most demanding gravel courses for riders seeking the best performances in all racing conditions.
Details of the Pirelli Cinturato Gravel RC Tubeless Folding Tire
Pirelli has created a proprietary rubber compound that allows for better performance and energy management with less effort whether riding on tarmac, gravel or more aggressive terrain. The SpeedGRIP Compound retains the same durability as its MTB counterpart (SmartGRIP) as well as its high wet grip, with a more efficient energy management decreasing the rolling resistance to a level very close to pure road racing tyres. This high-tech rubber compound is the product of experience gleaned from the off-road racing circuits monitored by Pirelli all over the world, both for 2 and 4 wheels.
The result is a compound with two diametrically opposed characteristics:
- tear resistance: maximum mechanical grip in dry conditions with a higher puncture protection and durability
- chemical grip: feel in control on any wet surface and weather condition, on and off the road
TechWALL High-strength woven Nylon fabric from bead to bead for added cut and puncture protection. Pirelli has created a casing using components and construction that
combine features that help resist damage whether from penetration by sharp objects or stones: an added layer of highly cut-resistant material is added from bead to bead in order to provide high cut protection without compromising on rolling efficiency and overall handling performances, whether it is for light gravel or pure off-road applications.
Note: Tubeless Ready tires require tubeless compatible rims/wheels, tubeless valves, tubeless rim tape and sealing fluid for tubeless mounting. Sealant fluid is not required for tubeless UST tires, but is recommended for increased puncture protection. Installation should only be carried out by qualified personnel.
