Vittoria’s Graphene use runs deeper in 2017 lines, further rolling speed gains made

Vittoria has further developed its use of Graphene in its 2017 tyre portfolio, pairing the ‘new carbon’ material with a four compound technology.

The four compound approach sees the manufacturer utilise a layering process, using 4 separate compounds at the same time. Vittoria 4C can tune the tread flex, rebound, and base stability to best achieve the desired performance. The combination of 4C technology with G+ Isotech compounds is said to offer never-before-seen performance gains.

To be found in the XC, downhill, fat and plus-size segments, as well as tarmac applications Vittoria will debut the new lines to trade simultaneously at the UK’s Cycle Show, Italy’s CosmoBike and Bike Motion in the Netherlands.

Urban and E-bike

Four upgraded tyres are soon to be available for city riders under the Tech banner. The new Adventure Tech, Trail Tech, Randonneur Tech and Revolution Tech all leverage Vittoria’s G+ Isotech compounds, latest puncture protection technology, as well as the full optimization and regulatory compliance for use with e-bikes.

Triathlon

Vittoria will now introduce the new Triathlon Speed, said to offer a 10.9% rolling resistance gain on the prior flagship model.

Specifically designed to address the exact needs of the Triathlon discipline, Vittoria leverages its handmade casing expertise in combination with the G+ Isotech* compound.

Track

23 out of 30 Olympic track medals were won on Vittoria tires during the recent Olympic Games, something which the brand attributes in part to its tech advances in recent times. And it’s set to get better, they say. The new Pista Speed with G+ Isotech now has 20.7% less rolling resistance than the classic favorite Pista Evo CL.

Downhill

The new Martello and Mota feature an rTNT DH casing, a dual-ply reinforced casing with a rigid tubeless-ready bead and APF (Anti Pinch-Flat) insert. Both new tires come equipped with both 4C and Graphene technology. Both are set to retail at €59.95.

Cross Country

Cross Country is trending towards wider tires, so Vittoria brings a wider version of Peyote, Mezcal and Barzo tires to the market. Moreover, Vittoria presents a brand new Cross Country tire, ideal for wet conditions, the new Gato. These range €52.95 through to €59.95.

Fat and Plus

After the introduction of the first low tread profile tyre by Vittoria in this category, the Bomboloni, consumer popularity demanded a second dedicated model.

Up steps the Cannoli, an aggressive paddle-design Fat & Plus tire, designed for deep snow and loose dirt conditions. It features a premium 120 TPI casing and a dual compound tread. The ample spacing allows for immediate shedding of snow and debris. The Cannoli is available in different sizes: 26×4.8, 27.5×3.0 and 29×3.0, from 1,130g.
