Best of luck to them. It'll probably be an uphill battle - it's a saturated market with some well-established products (and as others have mentioned, lots of cheap online prices).


For people who are really picky about their tires, I'm not sure it's so saturated. There are a few clearly better choices:

Gp4000sii for those who want reasonably fast rolling, good aero and good flat protection.

Turbo cotton, Conti TT and SS for fast rolling clinchers with tubes, turbo cotton a tiny bit slower but with a bit more flat protection.

Vittoria Corsa Speed for fastest possible rolling tires if you are going tubeless.

That's really all of the decent choices, right? I think there's room for another player in there, especially one with the cache of the Pirelli brand- IF the performance is really there. Yet to be determined.
