Global leader across the car and motorbike tyre market, the only supplier - since 2011 - of F1 single-seaters and Superbikes, Pirelli bounces back into the world of cycling backed up by a 110-year-old sports tradition.

The PZero Velo range will initially be available in three different versions, featuring a colour label on the tyres’ side, recalling the well-known PZero from F1: silver for Road Racing, red for the Time Trial and blue for the 4 Seasons.


“We chose to collaborate with Cape Cycle Systems for the South African market because of their proven experience and outstanding reputation – says Johan Molenmaker, Sales Director at Pirelli – We were looking for a professional partner with a portfolio of complementary premium brands, a national network and excellent knowledge of the SA market. We are certain that our partnership with Cape Cycle Systems will make a great number of SA cyclists appreciate the outstanding grip, great handling and reliability of our new bicycle tyres”

“We are excited and proud to be partnering with Pirelli for their return to cycling”, says Graham Hall CEO of Cape Cycle Systems - The Pirelli name is synonymous with high performance and quality, using their world-renowned design and testing facilities and we look forward to reintroducing Pirelli to the global cycling market and reliving the success stories that date back over one hundred years.”
