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.

Good tire. Great surface contact. Little bit nurves on sidewall but tuff enoght. hard to installation cus bid are tight. Recomand to Hard user / performance rider / weekend rider Not suit for Commuter -cus Little bit vulnerable pucture protection
Still hasn't gotten here, bought it a month ago. Dunno what else to say.
I bought these tires because I cannot longer find the Corsa Evo CX in my regular size. Like all Vittoria tires, these tires are very well finished with no obvious blemishes or defects. The box states that the tire's compound offers two different "feels," a hard feel while riding fast (for less rolling resistance) and a soft feel for cornering or accelarating (for a better grip). At first I assumed that this was just advertising fluff. After the first few miles, that included climbing, cornering and fast descent I am convinced that the advertising claims are in fact true: These tires do feel differently under different riding conditions! The feel is comfortable, reassuring, fast and confidence-inspiring. Combined with Vittoria latex inner tubes, these tires come close to the feel and performance of tubular tires. I still miss my old favorite Corsa Evo, but if these new tires continue to perform as expected they will soon become my new favorites. Good job Vittoria.
I've got about 500 miles on these now and these are the nicest clinchers I've ever used and better than all but two tubulars (Clement LGG and Corsa G+). I've used Michelin Pro4, Continental Grand Prix, Veloflex (my 2nd favorite), Vittoria Corsa CX and Rubino, Vredestein, Schwalbe, and others. The traction in corners is phenomenal. The grooved tread works well in rain. The comfort is very good, running 95-100psi in a 25mm tire on Campagnolo Bora One wheels. They are showing no wear yet and most amazingly there are no tread cuts, despite having ridden over numerous broken glass areas and a 175 mile gran fondo in the rain with a few gravel topped roads. The speed seems very good but I don't have numbers to verify that. I have found my new favorite tire.
Vittoria Corsa have come up with a real nice road tires, spine up fast, hold the road excellent Now have to wait to see how they wear wes
One hundred miles in, I am very pleased with these tires. It might be the power of suggestion, but I do think that rolling resistance is lower than it was on my previous set of Vittoria Open Corsa. I ride a vintage Eddy Merckx Steel bike with Campy Neutron wheels and Michelin Latex tubes. I inflate to 135 PSI. The price was excellent for a set of two tires. Delivery was prompt. I do not rate these 5 stars only because they are so new; I want to see if they are as durable and puncture resistant as their predecessors As it was with the Open Corsa tires, mounting the new tires to Neutron wheels is a struggle.
