Specialized carves out ‘Endurance Race’ segment with new Mondo tyre

Specialized carves out ‘Endurance Race’ segment with new Mondo tyre

The very best road bike tyres, from a speed and grip perspective at least, tend to also be more fragile than may be optimal for general use. More supple sidewalls, lighter weight, thinner rubber tread to save some grams and smaller puncture protection strips are all common features at the very pointy end of the performance pyramid. Hell, even carcasses are made from cotton, as per the new Vittoria Corsa Pro and Corsa Pro Control.

With consumers more and more demanding race-ready tech for their everyday riding, Specialized has merged together tech from its top-end Turbo range and its endurance Roubaix series to create the Mondo, and what it claims is the lightest and fastest endurance road tyre, with exceptional durability.
