Earlier this month, Pirelli introduced their newest bicycle tires – the Cinturato gravel and ‘cross family. We’ve already had a bit of time on them, and initial impressions have been great. They measure true to size, offer easy tubeless mounting and sealing, and seem to provide excellent traction in a variety of conditions. What we haven’t seen though, is the promised tan sidewall versions briefly mentioned in the original press release.
Along with announcing their partnership with the Jeroboam Gravel Challenge for 2019, Pirelli also sent over the first photos of the tan walls which look pretty good.
Featuring a diamond pattern which could be part of the nylon bead-to-bead reinforcement, the tan wall tires are an option for those that prefer the look over the standard black. Apparently, all of the Pirelli Cinturato Gravel tires will have a tan wall option in both the hard pack H and mixed terrain M tires.
The new treads also come wit the news of Pirelli’s partnership with the Jeroboam Gravel Challenge 2019, which will take place this weekend from September 20th to 22nd. For riders headed to the Franciacorta hills in Northern Italy, you’ll be able to check out the new Cinturato tires in person in the Pirelli booth at the Jeroboam Expo of Erbusco.
