About Vittoria:
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.
