    Question about Vittoria tubulars

    I picked up a set of Vittoria Corsa CX tubulars the other day. When I got home, I compared them to the ones that I currently have on my bike (Vittoria Corsa EVO CX)

    My question is this:

    Does anyone know if the Corsa CX has a latex tube, like the Corsa EVO CX? Is there a difference between the two tires? (note the absence of the EVO in the tires that I just purchased)

    I've pumped one up to stretch it, and it has lost some air, but not as quickly as I'm used to with latex tubs.

    I've checked the Vittoria site here, but it's not really giving me the information I'm looking for

    Any helps is appreciated.

    I know they were using their proprietary valve system for a while. Is that different between them?

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention this. I'm not sure if it's proprietary or not, but I did notice that the new ones had a brass valve stem, while the EVOs have a anodized red valve stem.
