Graphene explainedGraphene is a revolutionary material in the form of a very thin, nearly transparent sheet of pure carbon. In its extreme form it is as thin as a single atom (1/1,000,000,000th of a meter). Vittoria uses Directa Plus Graphene called G+, which is 2 to 8 atoms thin. Intelligent Tyre SystemThe use of Graphene in Vittoria wheels and tyres has created truly revolutionary products. Vittoria have created a new product range called the "Intelligent Tyre System" (ITâS) that benefits from this incredible development. Vittoria tyres are now intelligent. ITâS compounds become harder and softer, depending on the needs of the rider. If the tyre is rolling straight, the rubber is at its hardest and offers low rolling resistance. If the rider brakes, accelerates or corners, the compounds soften and offer significantly more grip. Prior to the advanced development of Graphene, there was always the requirement of choosing between optimizing, or aiming at, speed, grip, durability and puncture protection. The introduction of Graphene allows for natural material barriers of rubber to be removed, which means that there is no longer the need for such compromises between speed, grip, durability and puncture resistance. All these features are now reaching their maximum Vittoria TNT (TubeâNo Tube)Vittoria TNT (TubeâNo Tube) tyres are up to 100 g lighter than standard tubeless, yet have reinforced sidewalls with massive cut resistance. Run tubeless on UST rims with Pit Stop cartridge or liquid latex Pit Stop, TNT tires offer better cornering, faster rolling, and fewer pinch flats, at lower pressure. Fitting is easy: TNTâs tyre bead locks readily into the rim and tyre is inflated with a standard hand pump. Pit Stop cartridge contains only 35 g of foam, as effective as 50â60 g of liquid latex, and is a reliable solution for tubeless running. TNT tyres can equally be used with an inner tube if the rider prefers, and are still light for a reinforced tire. G+ Isotech Rubber CompoundG+ Isotech is Vittoriaâs 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. 4C CompoundExclusively 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.
