    Yeah they are good

    P-zero is a great road tire with tubes, and the cinturato measures bigger than advertised, seems super durable, and sets up tubeless really well.

    I think they are changing up the naming scheme this summer, but so far I’ve had great luck. Probably have 150 sets out on the road with little complaint

    Yes. The "4S" tires are really excellent in wet weather too. my new rain tire of choice.

    2 of our girls were given the 28mm TLR P Zero Race to test. Both removed them after the first wet ride, saying they were way too slick.

    I liked the old Specialized S-Works Turbo tires - the one that came in black-wall with totally slick tread, no dots or lines of raised tread. Must have been at least two generations ago, but I put on the last set I had stashed away earlier in the year. I was just kind of punting around for what would possibly be next and saw that Pirelli still offered tubed tires.

    Have the Cinturato 32mm slick on one bike, a faster and better armoured Gatorskin.
    Also they went on by hand, tubeless rim. Plus you get to say "Cin-turato"
    There was some waxy mold release still on the tyre, that needed to be scotchbrited
    off.

    Have P-Zero Velos on an Ellis Briggs, feel better than the Panaracer Race A Evo4s that
    were on it.

    BRR likes the Cinturato, the P Zero Velo is being replaced by P Zero Race.
    Both are French made.

    Did they crashed on them or locked the wheel while braking ?

    One girl low sided after the rear end went out in a turn. The other girl kept it up, but same sort of deal - lost traction in turns. Both are experienced riders/ racers and were on familiar roads in familiar conditions.

    For many years - trials tires - never had one flat, and the rubber compound is amazing.

    Had them on the Baja truck too, they lasted forever !!

    Might try the P-Zero Race/Velo (depending on which is available) and the 4s. Like the idea of a cold weather rubber. I always thought Vittoria Pavés were good at that. A lot of the newer tires seem kind of dry and hard, perhaps part of tubeless-readiness or Gripton or whatever. Also like a 26mm tire that weighs 205g (P-Zero Race tubed.)
