Those Open Corsa CXs are to die for. A local shop had them for $40 something. I bought 4 pairs (25c) a month before Cycle Oregon on both my geared and fix gear bikes and choose the bike I wanted to ride at the last minute. What a ride!

The 25s are so sweet I never think I am riding big tires. In fact, at my usual pressures for tires that size, they feel soft and better with the pressures I ride 23s.

They are race tires and will get flats where you would expect. But I have not found them to be flat magnets, just tires that require the usual attention.

Open Corsa's have very good (but not the best) Crr.....a solid choice for a performance tire with a great feel to them.

Just got my Corsa CX tubs the other day.....4 tires @ $29.99. NEVER seen them that cheap...not even at wholesale.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

If I only look at the reports and findings of tire tests I would ride Continental 4000. The thing is my Vitorias in 25 are just great tires. they feel solid and over their life stay great until they wear out. Most tires seem to last about 1 year before they start to rot. The rubber starts collecting grit and then the flats start from little tiny flecks. My Vitorias either last longer or just don't go this way. They feel like tubulars, corner really well and have predictable traction. I am looking forward to their next iteration with Graphene.
Love this tire.
