Pirelli is mak­ing a high-pro­file re­turn to the bi­cy­cle tyre mar­ket with its new range of P-zero tyres, and thanks to its con­sid­er­able her­itage in motorsport, the com­pany isn’t afraid to make some bold claims.

It says the P-ze­ros solve the com­pro­mise that ex­ists with rolling re­sis­tance, punc­ture pro­tec­tion and longevity. How? Get ready to be sci­enced: the mol­e­cules in its Smart­net Sil­ica com­pound place them­selves into uni­form sticks rather than the ran­dom spher­i­cal blobs of nor­mal sil­i­cate com­pounds. This ‘di­rec­tional po­si­tion­ing’ al­lows the tyres to be both sup­ple and tough. Ap­par­ently.
