Pirelli sent out a press release today with news of a new gravel tire in their Cinturato Gravel range called the RC X”. This tire is similar to the already available Gravel RC model which shares its tread pattern with the RC X. The main difference between the two variants is that the newer Pirelli tire has a “TechWALL X” nylon layer that overlaps the side wall more providing better cut resistance with the RC X over the RC. The tire retains the bead-to-bead puncture protection layer all Pirelli tires have throughout the gravel range.

The Cinturato Gravel RC X will be available in a 700 X 35mm Classic (tan/brown colored sidewall), a 700 X 40mm black wall, and 700 X 45mm Classic sizes. No pricing was given in the press release, but we were informed that the tires are available now.

Riding Gravel has reviewed the Cinturato Gravel H and Cinturato Gravel M tires. Check the links for some idea of what to expect from the Cinturato Gravel RC X tires. For more on this tire and all of Pirelli’s offerings see their site HERE.
