These are the new version of the Open Corsa TT. Anybody used them yet?? Any differences from the 'corsa'?? What's the difference between CX and KX??

I've been riding the Open Corsa's for years. I am almost at the point of needing a new set of tires, hence my questions. FYI: these tires are available on EBAY for the "buy now" price of $34.95 vs. Excel's $54.95 each. Still more expensive than what I used get the 'corsa' for.

Vittoria finally updated its website, but it may not answer your questions:

I went with the KS -- slick tread. The CX appears to have the most aggressive tread -- almost looks like the All Weather. Perhaps the KX is in between with respect to tread.

I had thought that the "K" refered to the addition of kevlar fibers for added cut resistance. But product descriptions I have just read suggest that all three versions have this.
