PIRELLI launches the first bicycle tire with FSC® certified natural rubber

Pirelli has announced that it is launching the world's first bicycle tire that uses natural rubber certified by the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®).

The Pirelli P Zero Race TLR RS, already in use by the World Tour team Lidl Trek, is an outstanding example of how technology and ecology can merge to deliver exceptional results.

FSC® certification ensures that the rubber used comes from plantations managed in a way that preserves biodiversity and improves the living conditions of local communities and workers.

Developed at Pirelli's advanced Milan-Bollate plant, which has been completely modernized for this purpose, the P Zero Race TLR RS stands out for its superior competition performance.

Designed for excellent grip characteristics in varied climates, precise handling and significantly reduced rolling resistance, this tire is ideal for the world's most demanding races.
