These past 2 months I’ve had the chance to test some of the top road tires from Pirelli, who are back in the bicycle game. Pirelli is dedicated to making a wide range of high quality and technologically advanced tires, to meet the needs of the modern cycling community - and they have some heritage.

Time for a little history then:

Pirelli was founded in Milan in 1872 and today stands as a global brand known for it’s cutting edge technology, high-end production excellence and passion for innovation that draws heavily on its Italian roots.
