The clincher version of the evolved world’s best performance tire pushes the limits of versatility.
- The world’s best tire
- 4 compounds for best speed, grip, durability and puncture protection
- Reinforced Corespun K casing for increased sidewall protection
Casing thread density is measured in threads per inch (one inch=25.4 mm), and known as TPI. The casing is the heart of the tire or tubular and is made of rubber and threads (which may be nylon, cotton, Kevlar, or Corespun).
Standard road tires usually have casings of 24–55 TPI. Vittoria tires and tubulars range from 26 TPI to 320 TPI. Riders in search of higher performance are likelier to choose higher-TPI tires.
For many sporting riders, folding tyres of around 150 TPI are a good all-round compromise of weight, rolling resistance, durability, and comfort. A higher TPI brings the benefit of lower weight and rolling resistance, but at a penalty to durability. Regardless, riders aiming to play harder will usually seek out tubulars and open tubulars with a TPI of 200 or greater.
4 Compounds (4C) is exclusively developed by Vittoria to achieve performance products without compromise. Vittoria 4C is a layering process, using 4 separate compounds in the same tread.
The 4C process offers unmatched versatility, by allowing for separate base and surface compounds, in both the center and side areas of the tread. Benefiting from the different properties of each compound, including the G+ Isotech*, their distribution is extensively tested to deliver the best products imaginable.
Designed to perform in every road and weather condition, this tire will deliver in all circumstances.
Leveraging Vittoria’s racing heritage to the maximum, this tire is combining the best (Graphene) compounds with the best casing technology available to deliver the best competition tire in the world.
G+ Isotech Compound
G+Isotech®* is Vittoria’s unique Graphene compound with revolutionary G+*, as provided by technology partner Directa Plus. No compromise is necessary with this compound that is superior in speed (rolling resistance), grip, durability and wear resistance.
