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. Vittoria today announced the introduction of its 2nd generation Graphene tyres. GRAPHENE 2.0 (G 2.0) takes the original Graphene compound foundation that Vittoria built, and functionalizes the advancements in performance, for each specific application.
President and founder of Vittoria Industries Rudie Campagne said “With the aim to push the boundaries continuously, we succeeded in the development of a new generation of Graphene tyres”.
Unlike the first-generation graphene, the new 2.0 graphene is functionalized to enhance specific tire 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.
Every year, tons of Graphene are applied to Vittoria tires 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. In 2018 Vittoria tires won every single Grand Tour time trial (ITT and TTT), as well as European, French, German, Austrian, Russian, Brazilian, and Pan-American Cross-Country championships.
