BLURRED LINES: DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II

For those who enjoy blurring the lines of high-speed road riding and occasional trackdays, Pirelli’s all-new Diablo Rosso Corsa II will be right up your street.

SMART TREAD

Just like its predecessor, the Corsa II boasts just 6% tread pattern coverage. And thanks to some very smart people wearing (presumably) crease-free white lab suits, the new tread designs’ proven to increases water dispersion rates, improves even tyre wear and allows for enhanced grip levels.

MULTI COMPOUND

For the first time ever, Pirelli’s opted to go down the multiple compound route with three zones (two compounds) on the front tyre and five zones (three compounds) on the rear. The idea behind this is to max both durability (centre line – 100% silica) and high grip levels (tyre edges – 100% carbon black) where it’s needed most.

STIFFER STRUCTURED

To aid track performance and stiffness without compromising on road comfort, Pirelli’s opted to use a smart high-modulus Lyocell fibre casing. What’s that then? Well, it’s a carcass casing that’s less submissive to deformation under hard acceleration, but still pliable enough to assure good feedback and essential flex for less arduous outbursts, such as when you pop out to Tesco to buy sultanas and grot mags.
