The clincher version of the evolved world’s best performance tire pushes the limits of versatility.
Graphene 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 (1/100,000,000th of a metre). Vittoria used Directa Plus Graphene called G+, which is 2 to 8 atoms thin.
The Benefits of Graphene
Vittoria and Graphene ITS and No Compromise
With the application of Graphene in Vittoria wheels & tyres, we have truly developed revolutionary products. Therefore, we have created a new product range called the “Intelligent Tyre System” (ITS)
Vittoria tyres are now intelligent. ITS 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 breaks, 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 optimising, or aiming at, speed, grip, durability and puncture protection. Effectively, 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 possibilities.
Vittoria is the world’s leading manufacturer of tyres with cotton Corespun casing. The sublime performance of Vittoria tyres and tubulars is the product of years of experience. R&D, and advance production technology. At its heart is our mastery of fine-cotton Corespun production. Simply put, the finer the Corespun fabric, the more supple the tyre casing. The casing conforms closer to the roads surface, providing a smoother ride, easier rolling, and better grip. The grade of fabric used in a tyre’s casing is expressed in threads-per-inch (TPI): the higher the TPI number, the finer the threads, the denser the weave, and the suppler the tyre. Uniquely, Vittoria makes casings with 320 TPI Corespun yarn – the finest available.
Vittoria cotton casings differ in thread size and additive content, according to intended use:

Nylon is a robust and durable artificial fibre traditionally used for strong tyre casings. The artificial fibre can be very light but is not as supple as Corespun. Our Nylon casings set a new standard in their class. Vittoria offers casings in Nylon 180 TPI, 150 TPI, 120 TPI, Nylon 60 TPI and Nylon 26 TPT, each equipping tyres at its respective point on the price-performance scale, and all conferring the Vittoria characteristics of comfort, speed and good handling.
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.
4 Compounds (4C)
Exclusively developed by Vittoria to achieve performance products without compromise. Vittoria 4C is a layering process, using 4 separate compounds in the same thread. The 4C process offers unmatched versatility, by allowing for separate base and surface compounds, in both the centre 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.
3 Compounds (3C)
Applied by Vittoria to deliver all-round products without compromise. Vittoria 3C is a layering process, using 3 separate compounds in the same tread. The different properties of each compound, including the G+ Isotech, allow for the improved experience in all circumstances.

I brought there tires from PBK Nov 2016, didn't really start using it unit recently. Here's my review Pro Very good looking with the gum wall look Light weight tires, with very good grip on the road. Cons. Gum wall gets dirty quickly, and is very hard to clean the tire was not glue well (yes not glued well, the black rubber started to seperated with the gum tire after about 500km) I used tubular glue to fix it. Is a good looking tire, but I would go with GP4000 or Pro4 for a peace of mind that the black rubber won't fly out during a ride.
Tires are very good so far. They are a little heavier than my Continentals but just as solid. Only did 100km. Will know more once I have done a season with them.
Originally purchased this for 99% aesthetics being on Conti's' for several years now... and it does not disappoint in looks OR performance This tire makes the bike corner like it is on rails and is SUPER grippy. On a few initial rides, it definitely inspires more confidence than my normal GP4000s. Looks the business as well, and makes the bike look pro! Highly recommended.
These tyres gave me the best ride to date. I am not talking rolling resistance here, even though they feel super fast: it's how they ride that made a whole world of difference. At first I was skeptical to get "race" tyres for they would last not too long and would not add much benefit... I couldn't be more wrong. They've lasted already more than 4000 kms without punctures and I still have a some tread to shred. Supper grippy, they inspire confidence and they take a lot of road buzz when compared to other tyres I've used.
What is there to say? The best tires in the world from the best seller on the planet. Thanks ProBikeKit.
