For 2021, the team has partnered up with the established premium tyre brand, Vittoria. With their blend of world class products and high-quality research and development facilities, which produces premium racing tyres for all performance levels, they fit in well with the team’s ethos of always looking for ways to improve.
Vittoria is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of bicycle tyres with an annual production of more than 7 million tyres and 900,000 high performance tubulars and cotton tyres. Vittoria research & development center develops tyres at all levels through constant innovation. In 2015, Vittoria launched the only tyres in the world with graphene. 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. Effectively, the introduction of graphene in tyres allows for natural material barriers of rubber to be removed. This means that there is no longer the need for such compromises between speed, grip, durability and puncture resistance.
