Vittoria Tyres - Tech Info
XC-RACE is the lightest Cross Country casing from Vittoria. Delivering top level dependability and performance, XC-RACE is the perfect choice for competitions. Tubeless-ready aramid beads combined with a single layer of Nylon 120 TPI make a lightweight package for ultimate speed in race.
XC-RACE tyres use GRAPHENE 2.0 tread with 4 compound (4C): the best technologies from Vittoria.
XC-TRAIL is the strongest casing option for Cross Country from Vittoria. Designed for the most demanding and challenging courses, XC-TRAIL uses an additional 120 TPI Nylon sidewall layer for ultimate puncture protection. The tubeless-ready beads allow for a light weight construction.

Enduro is the strongest and most robust casing from the Vittoria MTB line. It features a double-layered Nylon 120 TPI breaker covering the casing from bead to bead for increased puncture protection. The anti-pinchflat rubber inserts placed over the beads prevent damages at the bead and sidewall level. The Enduro casing is compatible with tubeless set-up.

TRAIL is the best casing option if you are looking for a resistant yet dependable tyre. It uses an additional 120 TPI Nylon protective layer and anti-pinchflat rubber inserts placed over the beads. This combination makes the Trail casing the go-to option for those who want minimize the chance of puncturing at the bead level and tyre sidewall level as much as possible. Trail uses tubeless-ready Aramid beads.

Vittoria 4C compound layering technology features separate base and surface compounds, in both the center and the side areas of the tread. This approach allows to fine-tune the flex of the tread-base and tread-surface separately, placing the correct hardness of the Graphene 2.0 compound exactly where it is needed for maximum cornering, climbing, rolling, and braking performance. In addition, durability and puncture protection are also improved, as the robust base compound resists punctures, and provides a stable base for deeper mountain bike treads.
Each of the 4 layers is comprised of different natural and synthetic rubber types, blended into the compound that works best for the intended use. This allows for endless customizations of each layer according to the tyre needs.
Every year, tons of Graphene are applied to Vittoria tyres and wheels. Graphene interacts with rubber by filling the space in between the rubber molecules, which has been verified to increase all positive performance metrics.
With the aim to always push the boundaries of what is possible, Vittoria succeeded in the development of a new generation of Graphene: GRAPHENE 2.0.
Unlike the first-generation graphene, the new 2.0 graphene is functionalized to enhance specific tyre performances. In other words, where the first generation of graphene compounds raised the bar evenly, Graphene 2.0 pin-points each performance metric, and increases it disproportionally to the rest. Vittoria is now able to apply Graphene in such a way that it can achieve a performance boost specifically for speed, wet grip, durability and puncture resistance.
