Pirelli Cinturato Velo TLR Tubeless Folding Tire - Classic (tan-wall) - 26-622
Pirelli’s experience and the reliability of SmartNET™ Silica technology combined with the tubless-ready comfort and the resistance of the Armour Tech™ technology facilitated the creation of a new clincher tyre with a unique DNA, perfect for long-distances and various terrains.
Highlights of the Pirelli Cinturato Velo Folding Tyre
- Armour Tech™ construction combines a Nylon bead-to-bead high density layer to an aramid breaker and aramid fibers dispersed into the tread, resulting in a new level of protection against the worst road conditions which has never been achieved before
- SmartNET™ Silica rubber compound guarantees safe rides and confidence-inspiring handling even in harsh conditions
- Ready for Granfondo riding as well as long adventures rides, all in a tube and/or TLR configuration.
Details of the Cinturato Velo
Tread & Rubber Compound.
Made from Pirelli's innovative SmartNET™ Silica and ICS and FGD technologies, Cinturato provides all-round cycling excellence. Thanks to its nano-rod conformation and the resulting network generation, coupled with the natural chemical water affinity of the Silica itself, it solves the traditional trade-off of rubber compounds, ranking high on opposite features such as rolling and wet grip, mileage and puncture protection.
An aramid fiber belt located underneath the tread in order to protect the casing from sharp objects: aramid is a fiber with high cut and abrasion resistance. Its light weight and flexibility also ensure rolling efficiency and overall performance of the tyre.
Bead to bead
A high density nylon layer belt extended from one bead to the other, all the way around the casing and underneath the tread and an aramind breaker, to protect the casing from sharp objects and provide support for low pressure riding: Nylon is a fiber with high cut and abrasion resistance and high tensile strength. Its lightweight nature and high density also helps make the tyre air tight combined with sealant use in tubeless-ready configuration.
TLR Bead Profile
A specific shape of the bead profile which matches with tubeless-ready rim hooks, plus a specific bead material and specification that allows for easy mounting with the inner tube while keeping proper tubeless bead engagement if used with a sealant in a fully tubeless ready configuration.
Developed over a 60 tpi casing, the tread features Pirelli Functional Design Groove and Ideal Contour Shaping technologies: the casing textile is designed to match contour for optimal footprint, while a different crown and sidewall radius guarantee controlled and specific tire deformation at different speeds and lean angles. On top of this, our lightning bolt groove design, derived from our experience in motorbike racing tire design, adds optimal water drainage at different angles and force loads, while ensuring low noise output and quickwarm uptimes, for immediate maximum grip levels, period.
Technologies of the Cinturato Velo TLR
Pirelli SmartNET™ Silica technology delivers high rolling efficiency, thanks to its natural anisotropic orientation, which reduces heating while increasing elasticity, to help minimise energy dissipation.
Enjoy highly reliable wet grip. The wide surface of the silica rod molecules enhances its natural water affinity, delivering confident handling on wet.
Puncture resistance and extensive mileage. Pirelli’s SmartNET™ Silica compound features microscopic rod-shaped particles, that are arranged systematically, rather than chaotically, creating a strong, long-lasting tyre.
Note: The Cinturato Velo TLR is not suitable for hookless rims.
26-622: Do not fit on rims if inner rim width is greater than 19C.
28-622: Do not fit on rims if inner rim width is greater than 20C.
32-622: Do not fit on rims if inner rim width is greater than 21C.
35-622: Do not fit on rims if inner rim width is greater than 24C.
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.
