Pinarello Specs Pirelli Tyres for MY 2019
MILAN, Italy – Two iconic Italian brands have found each other. In late April Pirelli announced its OEM partnership with Pinarello, whereby Pirelli will provide its PZero Velo tyres to the whole range of Pinarello Dogma F10 bicycles for model year 2019.
For its top-of-the-range bikes, Pinarello has chosen Pirelli’s new PZero Velo tyres. In recent months, Pinarello has tested the PZero Velo, carrying out extensive road tests. “We found that Pirelli tyres invariably delivered outstanding performances, with optimal results in each and every respect including rolling resistance, grip on wet and dry surfaces, ease of handling, resistance to punctures and durability, showing that they can fully meet our high-performance requirements,” said Fausto Pinarello, President and CEO of Pinarello.
First OEM agreement
“It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce our first and very important OEM agreement with one of the world’s most prestigious bike makers,” said Antonella Lauriola, COO Business Unit Velo Pirelli.
How important tyres are for the cycling experience was pointed out by Fausto Pinarello stating: “Tyres are the final and pivotal link between the bike and the road. Fitting the wrong tyres would nullify our work and compromise the performance of our bikes.”
